IRVINE, Calif. -- Fourteen Golf, a global leader in the development of golf equipment design, announced today that the company has signed an endorsement agreement with Long Drive Professional Jason Eslinger. Eslinger will be competing In the Open Division of the 2013 RE/MAX Long Drive World Championship beginning Monday, September 23 at the Mesquite Sports and Event Complex in Mesquite, Nevada. He will use a Fourteen Golf GelongD CT-214 Driver.
According to Fourteen Golf COO Marcy Kamoda, "We are very pleased to add Jason to our team. He has one of the fastest swing speeds in the world which makes him a great spokesperson for the company and our new high performance GelongD CT-214 Driver. When designing this new driver, we wanted to drastically increase distance off the tee, so we gathered feedback from long drive professionals including Jason to make sure we achieved our goal."
Eslinger turned pro in 2009 and has been a top competitor at long drive competitions for the past several years. He is a two-time Long Drive of America (LDA) Tour winner and has won 6 Professional Long Drive events in his career. In 2013 his accomplishments include a 5th place finish in the Dixie Classic, a 3rd place finish in the Tennessee Shootout, and a 2013 RE/MAX World Long Drive Championship Finalist. With swing speeds of 140+ and ball speeds of 210+ he is able to achieve significant distance off the tee. His longest drives in professional competition were 447 yards in Oklahoma City, OK and 446 yards in Falls City, NE.
"As a long drive professional, I look for any competitive advantage that I can get. In my opinion, the Fourteen Golf GelongD CT-214 Driver is the best driver in golf. I'm happy to be part of the Fourteen Golf team," said Eslinger.
The Fourteen Golf GelongD CT-214 Driver was designed with a high performance head and shaft to generate powerful drives. The 450 cm³ semi-shallow club head is constructed from a 4-piece titanium design for better energy transfer and better initial boost at impact. A precise CG placement allows for optimal launch and distance.
Jason will use the GelongD CT-214 Driver in professional long drive events and at the 2013 RE/MAX World Long Drive Championship. During charity and corporate golf outings, Jason will play the GelongD CT-214 Driver, Fourteen Golf Fairway Wood and Driving Iron, FH-1000FG Irons and RM-12 Wedges in 52, 56 and 60-degrees.
"Jason is the first long drive professional that we have had on our staff and we look forward to watching him compete in the World Long Drive Championship with our new driver," added Kamoda.
The 2013 RE/MAX World Long Drive Championship finals run September 18-27 at the Mesquite Sports and Event Complex in Mesquite, NV. Champions will be crowned in six divisions, while the top eight hitters in the Open Division advance to the Oct. 30 showdown in Las Vegas.
