Fourteen Golf CT-112 Driver played by Ryuji Imada at Stadion Classic

IRVINE, Calif. -- Fourteen Golf, a global leader in the development of golf equipment design, announced today that PGA Professional Ryuji Imada put into play the new Fourteen Golf CT-112 Driver on the University of Georgia Golf Course to gain increased distance off the tee. His strategy paid off with a tie for eighth place, his best finish of the new season.

According to Fourteen Golf COO Marcy Kamoda, "Ryuji wanted to play aggressive and compete with the long ball hitters so he played the new CT-112 Driver and he got exactly what he wanted - more distance with accuracy."

As a former Bulldog, Imada knows how to manage the UGA Golf Course as well as what equipment he should play. Some holes on the course are attackable with the right distance off the tee. On the first day he drove the ball longer and more accurate which resulted in birdies on holes 1, 2, 7, 9 and 12. Going into the #13 hole, Imada was five under par leading the tournament. The added distance he gained with the CT-112 Driver allowed him to use short irons going into the greens.

To produce longer driving distances the Fourteen Golf engineering team developed the CT-112 Driver with a four-piece composite Titanium head. The exclusive crown has been chemically milled to 0.5mm and is complemented with a multi-layered cup face. This dynamic combination works in unison to bring out the best from the 460cc traditional driver.

To maximize the incredible combination of the four-piece Titanium club head and lengthy shaft, the CG distance has been set to 38mm, club depth to 37mm, and MOI to 3950 g•cm².

These settings create a solid impact with longer carry distances. Moreover, the CG height at 21mm provides just the right amount of backspin that will ensure consistency and accuracy. A multi-layered cup face helps the consistency and the length of this driver. The unique face actually varies in thickness which creates high ball speeds with a traditional solid sound at impact.

"We were thrilled to watch Ryuji work his CT-112 Driver so well and play some of his best golf of the season. His first round 68 was inspiring and we expect to see more great play," added Kamoda.

Imada shot a 68, 70, and a final round of 72 to finish at 3-under 210. He used the Fourteen Golf CT-112 Driver as well as his RM Series Wedges. However, he was not the only Web.com Professional who played the high performance RM Series Wedges, so did the champion as well as the Web.com Professional who took third place - 2 strokes behind the winner.

"In addition to the success our driver and wedges garnered at the Stadion Classic, Fourteen Golf Utility Irons were used to take a runners-up position, making this finish the trifecta of the weekend," added Kamoda.

In addition to the vast amount of professional golfers playing Fourteen Golf equipment, the company has a professional Fourteen Golf staff team which includes PGA Professionals John Mallinger, Arjun Atwal, Ryuji Imada and Chad Collins.
