Mantis Golf to exhibit at upcoming 2013 Haggin Oaks Golf Expo

WILTON, Conn. -- Mantis Golf, maker of fine putters with specialized patented qualities to enhance putting success, will exhibit its putter line at the 2013 Haggin Oaks Golf Expo, to take place April 26-28 at Haggin Oaks Golf Complex in Sacramento, Calif.

"We look forward to participating in this outstanding event, which draws a robust crowd every year," said Chris Maher, CEO of Mantis Golf. "Attendees will enjoy discovering how a Mantis putter can sharpen their putting stroke and elevate their game."

America's largest consumer golf event, Haggin Oaks Golf Expo, now in its 38th year, hosts golfers from all over California, Oregon and Nevada, who gather to see the latest in everything from golf equipment to vacation destinations and everything in between. Admission is free to the public. This year over 165 different manufacturers and booths are scheduled to appear. Golf organizations such as the U.S. Golf Association, the PGA of America, the Northern California Golf Association and The First Tee also will be represented at the Expo.

About Mantis Golf
With a blend of old-world craftsmanship and state-of-the-art technology, Mantis Golf putters feature the finest workmanship and built-in performance elements to help golfers discover and refine their most effective putting strokes. Retro in its simplicity yet revolutionary in its concept, the Mantis putter, with its patented green finish, is designed to minimize the visual attention a golfer gives to the putter and maximize attention to the ball and the line of the putt, thus producing a smoother putting stroke and more consistent results. With a color to match the putting surface, minimal alignment markings and a matte finish to reduce reflection, the Mantis putter, which conforms with USGA rules, does not fight the ball for attention. After all, the putter is part of the show, but the ball is the hero.

Founded in 2012 by Michael Dill and Chris Maher, Mantis Golf Company, which made its debut at the 2013 PGA Merchandise Show, was launched with one initial mallet design. Expansion plans include additional putter-head designs as well as the possibility of other clubs where the patent-pending green utility may provide the same benefit.
