RIFE Aruba putter wins 2014 Grey Goose World Par 3 Championship

SANFORD, Fla. -- Fresh off its win on the PGA TOUR at the Valero Texas Open, RIFE's success continued at the 2014 Grey Goose World Par 3 Championship at Turtle Hill Golf Club in Southampton, Bermuda.

Mark Mouland, using his RIFE Aruba putter, captured a victory with a two-day total of 1-under par 107, one shot better than Bermuda's own second place finishers, Michael Sims and Camiko Smith.

"It was tough out there," said the 52 year-old native of St. Athan Wales. "Anytime you are dealing with gusting winds, it always makes this game difficult. It really becomes a guessing game at times, but despite the rough conditions, everything turned out just fine."

This victory earned him the largest 1st Place paycheck in the championship's five-year history for $20,000.00.

"Mark has been a long-time supporter of RIFE," said RIFE's Vice President of Tour Operations, Jim Barfield. "He's been playing with our putter for as long as I can remember. We want to congratulate him on this latest victory."

"The Tour Players play our putter because it helps them earn a bigger paycheck on Sunday," said Kyle Ulrikson, PGA Tour Rep for RIFE, "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.
