- FOURTEEN GOLF Immediate Release - 22 April, 2013
IRVINE, CA - April 22, 2013 - FOURTEEN GOLF, a global leader in the development of golf equipment design, announced today that a variety of FOURTEEN GOLF equipment including fairway woods, utility woods, wedges and a driver, were played at the LPGA Tour Lotte Championship in Hawaii to nab two Top-10 finishes.
According to Fourteen Golf COO Marcy Kamoda, "This LPGA Tour event proved to be very strong for FOURTEEN GOLF. Not only did we have an assortment of products being played but we had many wedges in play - probably well over 30. We are thrilled how this golf season continues to grow the brand and awareness for our golf equipment."
Many LPGA Professionals put FOURTEEN GOLF wedges into play, but one young and exceptionally gifted player attacked the par 72 Ko Olina Golf Course with a bag filled with FOURTEEN GOLF equipment to tie for ninth place. The FOURTEEN GOLF LPGA Tour representative confirmed that she played the new FOURTEEN GOLF CT-112 Driver, a four-piece composite Titanium driver with an exclusive crown and multi-layered cup face. She also used two FOURTEEN GOLF SF-511 Fairway Woods - a 14-degree #3 metal and a 19-degree #5 metal as well as three FOURTEEN GOLF UT-511 Utility Woods in a 21, 24, and 27-degrees.
"Our SF-511 Fairway Woods were used for the reachable par 5s as they have stronger lofts for increased distance. These woods can seriously help a golfer go low," added Kamoda. "There are sand bunkers on almost every hole on the Ko Olina Golf Course, maybe with the exception of a couple. I believe that is why we had so many sand wedges in play. Our RM-12 Wedge in a 60-degree has a special sole designed to get the ball easily out of a bunker or bad lie," added Kamoda.
For the 60-degree RM-12 Wedge, the design team implemented a T-Sole, also known as a Twin Sole. A distinct ridge in the middle portion of the sole allows the club to get through any type of lie easily as the leading edge is able to slide under the club effortlessly. Additionally, when the club face is open, the back portion of the sole encourages the ball to pop up with the perfect amount of spin.
The second Top-10 taken at the LPGA Tour Lotte Championship for FOURTEEN GOLF was accomplished by a professional playing a FOURTEEN GOLF wedge. This LPGA Touring Professional has been playing FOURTEEN GOLF wedges for years and this weekend was no different. She used both a 52 and 59-degree wedge to enjoy her first Top-10 finish of the 2013 LPGA Tour season.
In addition to the vast amount of professional golfers playing FOURTEEN GOLF equipment, the company has a professional FOURTEEN GOLF staff team which includes PGA Professionals John Mallinger, Arjun Atwal, Ryuji Imada and Chad Collins.
