Tim Burke to appear at HIRZL Booth at 2014 PGA Merchandise Show

HIRZL, the leading specialist for high performance sports gloves, is pleased to announce that Tim Burke, the 2013 RE/MAX World Long Drive Champion will be visiting the HIRZL booth, #1679, during the upcoming PGA Merchandise Show on Thursday, January 23nd from 1-2 p.m.

"With so much riding on every single swing, HIRZL's grip-enhancing glove is one of my most trusted and valuable pieces of equipment, said Burke. "Wearing their product gives me confidence in knowing that I have the best glove in golf and all I need to do is worry about performing. I look forward to meeting with golfers, PGA professionals and the media to discuss the secrets to hitting the ball longer and father and the importance of having a secure grip on the club."

"With a swing speed exceeding 150 miles per hour and competing against the world's longest drivers, wearing a glove that can withstand extreme wear and tear while providing superior grip was a key factor in helping Tim capture his first world championship and the $250,000 first place prize," stated Steve Gray, Vice President of HIRZL North America.
