The brand name "Fourteen" was created from the maximum number of clubs a golfer is allowed to have in the bag during competition. The company strives to reach and surpass its fundamental principle, "To equip golfers with the best 14 clubs" with each and every golf club they develop.
Fourteen Golf was established in 1981 by one of the leading golf club designers in Japan. Through the years Fourteen Golf has pushed the limits of golf club design in order to make golf more accessible and easy for golfers of all handicaps.

The message behind the iconic Fourteen feather logo:
Fourteen Golf's objective when launching the company was to produce equipment that allowed any type of golfer to swing easily at the ball without any swing modifications. This simplicity and freedom to swing at the ball easily as well as lightly reflects the gracefulness of a bird. So, the feather seemed to represent that feeling as well as the golf terms: albatross, eagle and birdie are all bird related.
Fourteen was founded as a golf club design firm in 1981. Fourteen designed and introduced a number of excellent golf clubs for almost all the major club manufacturers for 20 years.
In 1987, the winner of the US Open used irons which were designed by Fourteen. It was the first major title won by a professional playing golf clubs made in Japan.
The company introduced a utility iron in 1988, which was the prototype of what is now known as the hybrid iron.
In 1989, cavity back irons designed by Fourteen achieved phenomenal success. The irons were designed with a CG(Center of Gravity) angle feature, which drastically improved ball striking as well as increased ball distance.
In 2002, Fourteen decided to concentrate on producing golf clubs under the brand name Fourteen Golf, making use of the experiences and technical know-how accumulated throughout the years as a club design firm.
The company quickly attracted the attention of golfers throughout the world to Fourteen Golf equipment. In 2002, the winner of The Open Championship played Fourteen Golf HI-858 irons.
Today, 'squeal to halt' back-spin wedge shots are a common site on tour, but it was Fourteen Golf's original MT-28 wedge that made this type of shot a reality for common golfers. The MT-28 wedge has managed to endow the average golfer with pro wedge techniques by building functionality for these kinds of shots into the club itself.Combining this spin capability with a high level of control and stability, MT-28 wedges have proven their place in golfers' bags, from the best pros to average players.
Fourteen Golf has been recognized as a worldwide leader in wedge design and more recently it has earned a reputation for producing some the most classically designed, tour-inspired, forged irons in the world.
