Rife Golf congratulates Shanshan Feng on Reignwood Classic win

SANFORD, Fla. -- 2012 LPGA Championship winner Shanshan Feng captured her 2nd LPGA victory in dramatic fashion this past weekend in her home country of China at the Reignwood Classic held at the Pine Valley Golf Club in Beijing.

Feng, who last year became the first golfer from mainland China to win an LPGA event when she captured the Wegmans LPGA Championship, won with a flourish. Trailing by one shot on the Par 5- 490 Yard 18th Hole, the-24-year-old pride of Guangzhou, China rattled the flagstick on her approach shot and then drained an eagle putt using her RIFE Mr. Beasley putter to capture a one stroke victory.

Feng surpassed the $3 Million mark in career earnings with this 26 under par 266 victory and moved up to #8 in the Rolex Rankings.

"All of us at RIFE would like to congratulate Shanshan (Jenny) on this victory," said Kyle Ulrikson, RIFE's LPGA TOUR Rep. "She is a very talented player and we all think this is just the latest of many more victories to come."

Feng is just one of the many non-endorsed Professional Tour Players who choose to play a RIFE putter even though they're not paid to play it. "The Tour Players play our putter because it helps them earn a bigger paycheck on Sunday," said Jim Barfield, V.P. of Tour Operations for RIFE Golf, "and we're very proud of that. Our RollGroove Technology grips and lifts the ball into an instant forward roll and gets it on line and headed towards the cup quicker than any other putter in the industry. If it's good enough for the best golfers in the world you can bet it's going to help you sink more putts as well."

About RIFE Golf
RIFE Golf is the true innovator behind horizontal grooved face putter technology with a patent on specifically sized grooves since 1997. These precisely spaced grooves allow the putter to gently press into the cover of the ball and grip and lift it into an instant forward roll. RIFE states, "just as grooves in irons help control spin so do grooves in a putter face." Other companies are now trying to imitate this patented technology but the spacing of the grooves is the true key to the gripping and lifting effect of grooved
face putter technology. Horizontal RollGrooveTM faced putters create the truest "no skid" roll in golf no matter where you hit the ball on the putter face.
