Fourteen Golf wedges take top-ten at Deutsche Bank Championship

IRVINE, Calif. -- Fourteen Golf, a global leader in the development of golf equipment design, announced that the Golf Digest "Hot List" award winning Fourteen Golf RM-12 Wedges were played by a top-10 finisher at the Deutsche Bank Championship in Norton, Mass.

According to Fourteen Golf COO Marcy Kamoda, "Our RM-12 Wedges continue to be a favorite among professionals on all Tours and have been used by winners and top-10 finishers consistently throughout the 2013 season. This PGA Professional used his RM-12 Wedges to set up birdie opportunities during each round. During the final round he birdied 5 holes to shoot a 67 to gain a top-10 finish and earn a spot at the BMW Championship at Conway Farms next week."

The PGA Professional played RM-12 Wedges in a 50-degree loft with 12-degree bounce and a 60-degree loft at the Deutsche Bank Championship. The highly engineered RM-12 provided this PGA Professional precision with optimal speed to claim his fourth Top-10 finish of the 2013 PGA Tour season.

Fourteen Golf has garnered a reputation throughout the world as being the preeminent wedge designer and the RM-12 Wedge verifies it. This tour inspired, high performance wedge features expanded grooves that impart exceptional spin and rotational speed. These uniquely shaped trapezoidal grooves have been enlarged by 15% as compared to other Fourteen Golf wedges. This increase in overall groove volume enhances spin retention particularly on partial shots. In addition, these high quality grooves perform well in both dry and wet conditions.

The sole design of the RM-12 Wedge differs greatly from the original RM-11 Wedge. Tour players like to create different shots using the same wedge so the engineers rounded the toe and heel area on the H-Sole available on the 48-degree to 58-degree models and actually removed the back portion of the sole. These modifications allow golfers to open and close the face, promoting a variety of shots.

The 60-degree RM-12 Wedge is unlike the other lofted RM-12 Wedges as it features a T-Sole, also known as a Twin Sole. A distinct ridge in the middle portion of the sole allows the club to get through any type of lie easily as the leading edge is able to slide under the club effortlessly. Additionally, when the club face is open, the back portion of the sole encourages the ball to pop up with the perfect amount of spin.

Fourteen Golf is a burgeoning golf equipment company that takes great pride in its tour program. In addition to the vast number 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.
