Fourteen Golf in top 10 again at Waste Management Phoenix Open

IRVINE, Calif. -- Fourteen Golf, a global leader in wedge and iron design with over 48 professional tour victories, announced today that its Tour Utility Iron was played to navigate the Stadium Course at TPC Scottsdale and locked in another Top-10 finish for a very talented PGA Tour Professional.

"We are thrilled by the overall acceptance of our Tour Utility Irons. Last week a #3 Utility Iron was played to secure a Top-10 at the Humana Challenge, and again this week at the Waste Management," according to Fourteen Golf COO Marcy Kamoda. "These PGA Professionals who carry a Fourteen Golf Utility Iron understand the importance of controlling their long shots. It takes what would be a probable par into a birdie opportunity."

Every week the PGA Touring Professionals play incredibly difficult golf courses and need distance as well as pinpoint accuracy. The Waste Management Phoenix Open is proof of that. The Stadium Course at TPC features carefully positioned bunkers, lakes, and hazards but it does provide some risk-reward holes and that is how a Fourteen Golf supporter shot a superb opening and closed the event with one of the lowest rounds of the day. He navigated his way around TPC Scottsdale, using his Fourteen Golf Tour Utility Iron to capitalize on the dangerous holes.

Average golfers also face difficult golf courses so the company developed the Hi-610h T.S. - a Utility Iron that looks easy to hit and in fact, they are. A hollow structured head produces the distance of a fairway wood with the accuracy of an iron. A deep and lower CG provides control as well as stability. It allows the golfer to select the smallest of targets and precisely get there.

"The Hi-610h T.S. was inspired by the professionals. It hits long shots accurately to the pin, added Kamoda."

The Hi-610h T.S. features a relatively small club head size. The idea was to maintain the appearance of a traditional iron while managing to produce a club that will allow golfers to hit solidly out of any rough. There are three Hi-610h T.S. Utility Irons to choose from, a #2, #3, and #4. For more information and specifications on these unique irons, visit the Fourteen Golf website at www.fourteengolf.com.

Fourteen Golf is a burgeoning golf equipment company that takes great pride in their tour program. The company proudly announced the addition of PGA Professional John Mallinger to the Fourteen Golf Professional Staff in January of 2013. He will play the RM Series Wedges as well as wear a Fourteen Golf cap. His staff bag, head covers, umbrella and towel will all display the Fourteen Golf logo.

Last year, Fourteen Golf officially signed Japanese golfing prodigy and PGA Professional Ryuji Imada to a three year endorsement deal which includes a staff bag, head covers, hat, umbrella and wedges. He joins Fourteen Golf team members PGA Professionals Chad Collins and Arjun Atwal.
