Mantis Golf Company to include Players Towel with putter purchase

WILTON, Conn. -- Mantis Golf, maker of fine putters with specialized patented qualities to enhance putting success, will include a Players Towel as a gift to consumers with each putter purchased through Dec. 31.

"As increasing numbers of golfers are discovering the putting ease and accuracy of Mantis, it is our pleasure to offer a free Players Towel to everyone purchasing a Mantis putter from now through December 2013," said Chris Maher, CEO of Mantis Golf. "The free Players Towel, a $17.95 retail value, offers Mantis buyers a tremendous value and is available at participating retail and online outlets."

Mantis Golf exhibited its line of exceptionally-designed putters at the PGA Expo last week in Las Vegas, where the original Mantis mallet putters were on display. New Mantis models will be added to the line soon, including a left-handed mallet and a blade putter.

About Players Towel
Players Towel is the leading performance golf towel and has been in the winner's circle on all major golf tours. Designed by a former LPGA caddie, Players Towel features microfiber technology, providing the best absorption and durability. While traditional heavy cotton cloth towels push dirt and moisture around, the Players Towel microfiber technology picks up dirt and moisture, holding it in the cloth and off the equipment, resulting in cleaner dryer equipment and enhanced player performance. Available in custom logos, signatures, colors and an optional "Putterslit," Players Towel is an essential part of one's golf game and makes an ideal tee gift for corporate, charity and club outings. Players Towels are sold on line at www.playerstowels.com and at leading pro shops and resorts around the world.

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 d├ębut 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.
