Boccieri Golf announces new Extended Length Series of putters

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -- Boccieri Golf announces the launch of its Extended Length (EL) Series of putters which offer a true alternative to anchoring by combining a slightly longer shaft with the company's patented, Tour-proven system that features a heavier mass head and counterweight in the grip.

Part of the award-winning Heavy Putter line, the EL Series delivers unmatched stability and consistency, making it equally suited to players using regular length putters as those relying on belly and long models. Each of the new styles showcases a shaft that extends beyond the hands, but does not attach to the body. This unique design allows golfers to use the same stroke they would with a traditional length putter while benefitting from a 175-gram counterweight that produces a dramatically raised balance point and the industry's highest MOI.

"One reason belly putters became so popular was because the additional grip and shaft materials created a natural back-weight," says Stephen Boccieri, President and CEO of Boccieri Golf. "Other OEM's are just now adopting counterweighting while we've been touting it for nearly a decade and have now taken it to the next level."

Available in 36, 38 and 40-inch lengths, the EL Series includes 21 styles in three finishes and three distinct weight categories LITE (840 grams), MID (865 grams) and HEAVY (930 grams). This stands in stark contrast to competing brands that offer only one or two models with longer shafts. In all Heavy Putter models, the extra weight engages the body's larger, more stable muscles to promote greater control with each stroke.

About Boccieri Golf
Founded in 2005 by Stephen Boccieri, the company's popular Heavy Putter collection and Control Series line of full-swing products were the first to integrate counterweight principals. This unique approach to club design is proven to benefit golfers of all abilities, as strategically placed weight in the butt-end of the shaft produces a higher balance point for smoother, more repeatable swings from driver through putter. Boccieri Golf's Secret Grip, endorsed by Jack Nicklaus, was introduced in 2013.

The company recently opened a state-of-the-art Research and Performance Center at 15816 N. Greenway-Hayden Loop in Scottsdale. The 9,000-square-foot facility offers golfers a variety of services, including custom club fitting, high-tech swing analysis and practice time on life-like simulators.

Boccieri Golf equipment has played a key role in victories on the PGA, European, Champions, Nationwide, Asian, Canadian and European Challenge Tours, and has received critical acclaim from golf and lifestyle media worldwide.
