Fourteen Golf staffer Chad Collins secures 2014 PGA Tour Card

IRVINE, Calif. -- Fourteen Golf, a global leader in the development of golf equipment design, proudly announced that Fourteen Golf Professional Staff Member Chad Collins will be graduating from the Web.com Tour to the PGA Tour.

According to Fourteen Golf COO Marcy Kamoda, "We couldn't be happier for Chad. He worked so hard this past season and deserves his 2014 PGA Tour Card. The company and I congratulate him on this monumental achievement."

Collins enjoyed a remarkable 2013 Web.com Tour season. He clinched four Top-10 finishes, three of which were third place finishes. The first came at the Mid-Atlantic Classic followed by the Utah Championship where he missed shooting a 59 by one stroke. His third - third place was locked in at the Mylan Classic. His fourth Top-10 finish was at the Nationwide Children's Hospital where he tied for seventh place.

"Chad enjoyed a tremendous season! He played some pretty inspired golf particularly at the Utah Championship where he shot four rounds in the sixties playing our wedges," added Kamoda.

In addition to his Top-10 finishes, Collins had eight Top-25 finishes and made 16 cuts. In all of these events he used four Fourteen Golf wedges - a 48-degree, 50-degree, 56-degree and 60-degree. Carrying additional Fourteen Golf Wedges was a short game advantage that helped him move up the money list which secured his 2014 PGA Tour Card.

According to Chad Collins, "The Fourteen Golf RM-12 Wedges allow me to have the confidence to execute any shot from any lie. Along with conforming grooves that produce more than enough spin at just the right times. I rely on my Fourteen Golf wedges during every condition out on tour."

In addition to Chad Collins being on the Fourteen Golf Staff team, he is joined by PGA Professionals Arjun Atwal, Ryuji Imada and John Mallinger. Images and Bios of these players can be furnished upon request or seen at the company website www.fourteengolf.com.
