HIRZL to participate at Demo Day at Haggin Oaks Golf Complex

After setting an all time record for glove sales at the 2011 and 2012 Haggin Oaks Golf Expo, HIRZL is pleased to announce that it will be returning for the 2013 Expo, April 26-28 at the Haggin Oaks Golf Complex in Sacramento, California.

According to Mike Pompei, buyer for Haggin Oaks, in 2012, HIRZL out-sold the nearest glove manufacturer by a factor of six times and set the all-time record in the event's 37 year history for most sales of any glove manufacturer. "We have been carrying the HIRZL glove since the spring of 2010 and have been pleased with the growth of the brand," stated Pompei. "To see HIRZL out-sell every other brand we carry during our Golf Expo was true testament to how well these gloves perform and how well they are being received by our customers."

"We were extremely pleased to see our HIRZL gloves do so well with the Haggin Oaks customers and we look forward to an even better Expo in 2013," said Steve Gray, Vice President of Sales for HIRZL North America. "Record sales two years in a row indicates the tremendous consumer, green grass and PGA professional support HIRZL has generated. It is further proof that HIRZL has become a global pioneer in high performance golf gloves where innovation and precision engineering is at the heart of our philosophy and is supported by a focus on design and top quality production."

"Thanks to our unique technology and innovative design, HIRZL golf gloves provide an optimal grip in all weather conditions, creating greater swing control for golfers of all playing levels," added Gray.

HIRZL, headquartered in Switzerland, with North American operations based in Granbury, TX, is a leading specialist for high performance sports gloves.

HIRZL's gloves are designed with the latest scientific, technical and ergonomic mechanics data on how sports equipment is used on the hands.

HIRZL uses exclusive GRIPPP™ technology in their kangaroo leather TRUST Series of golf gloves that provide up to 3X better grip in dry weather and up to 5X better grip in wet weather over other glove brands. HIRZL's SOFFFT™ Flex Cabretta glove uses the company's 72-step tanning procedure that extends the peak performance level of the glove far longer than other brands. The entire series of HIRZL gloves are washable. HIRZL golf gloves have been reviewed by the USGA and R&A and found to be fully conforming to the rules of golf. HIRZL is also the Official Golf Glove of the RE/MAX World Long Drive Championships. HIRZL golf gloves are available in three series: TRUST Control for the ultimate in grip; TRUST Feel for lower handicap players and those seeking better grip and performance in all types of weather conditions and; SOFFFT Flex for unsurpassed softness and long-lasting performance in a Cabretta glove.
