Boccieri Golf Secret Grip finishes second at Zurich Classic

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -- Boccieri Golf announces both the full-swing and putter versions of its Secret Grip - which allows players to easily counter balance their clubs for an instant boost in performance - were used by a second-place finisher at the PGA Tour's Zurich Classic of New Orleans.

The player relied on the full-swing version of the grips on his fairway woods, hybrids and irons en route to his best Tour finish to date. Designed to be installed quickly and affordably on every manufacturer's equipment, the Secret Grip's heavier weight (92 grams) raises the club's balance point, promoting consistently crisp contact for greater control and distance.

Employing the new "Classic" model in his putter, which weighs 100 grams and has a traditional slim appearance, the runner-up finisher joins a number of other Tour players who have switched to the Secret Grip this season. The added weight forces players to use their larger, more stable muscles, resulting is a highly repeatable and reliable putting stroke.

"Counter balancing in putters has become increasingly popular, however, more and more PGA Tour players are now embracing this technology in all clubs," says Stephen Boccieri, President and CEO of Boccieri Golf. "The Secret Grip isn't just another shaft cover, it uses proven physics to automatically improve a player's swing and putting stroke."

For a limited time, the company is offering a risk free 30 day replacement guarantee on the full-swing versions of the Secret Grip. This bold, never-before-seen promotion puts the Secret Grip to the test by offering a trial period wherein customers can return the products if not completely satisfied and receive replacement grips of their choice at absolutely no cost! New models for 2014 include a specially-designed full-cord option, patriotic color updates - red, white, blue - and a thicker midsize option.

Since its introduction in 2013, the putter version of the Secret Grip has been adopted by scores of Tour pros worldwide. The product is available in three sizes - Classic, Midsize and Jumbo. The Midsize ($24.99) weighs 155 grams and features popular pistol shaping. Weighing 165 grams, the Jumbo ($24.99) is preferred by players seeking a grip with an extra thick feel and hefty counterweight.

The Secret Grip range is currently available at Dick's Sporting Goods, Golf Galaxy, PGA TOUR Superstore and www.SecretGrip.com.

Secret Grip is endorsed by the legendary Jack Nicklaus, who relied on counter balanced clubs to capture 73 PGA Tour titles and 18 major championships. He currently appears in promotional material, along with famed teacher Rick Smith, who consistently ranks among the world's top-10 instructors.

Both the putter and full-swing lines have earned outstanding reviews from scores of leading media outlets, including "Top Products from the PGA Show" honors from Golf Digest and GOLF Magazine.
