Fourteen Golf applauds top finishes

IRVINE, Calif. (July 24, 2017) – The players who finished solo runner up at the British Open and the Barbasol Championship both used Fourteen Golf products in the course of their outstanding performances.

The runner up at the Open used Fourteen Golf’s Type 7 Utility Iron to navigate the narrow, windswept fairways of Royal Birkdale, where he recorded rounds of 65-71-66-69—271 for a 9-under par final score.

The 39-year-old out of Georgia Tech also used the Type 7 Utility Iron when he finished fourth at The Masters earlier this year.

“Fourteen Golf is proud that such a highly-ranked Tour player trusts our company’s Type 7 utility iron in the highest level of competition in game,” said Masashi Kamoda, chief operating officer of Fourteen Golf.  “Everyone at the company sends him our congratulations on such a tremendous performance.”

Meanwhile at the Barbasol Championship, Chad Collins used Fourteen Golf’s RM-22 Tour Raw wedges in lofts of 47, 52, 56 and 60 degrees enroute to his second-place finish – and his second top 10 of the year.

Collins, 38, shot 20-under par 264 with rounds of 67-60-69-68 at the Grand National’s Lake Course, a part of the Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail, in Opelika, Alabama. Collins made four birdies in his final five holes.

“Fourteen Golf congratulates Chad Collins on his runner-up finish at the Barbasol Championship and we anticipate he will keep his good play going,” Kamoda said. 

The Fourteen Golf Type 7 utility iron provides the precision of an iron with the forgiveness of a hybrid club, according to Kamoda.  The club features a uniquely shaped hollow structure and a relatively small head, giving the club the appearance of an iron while delivering hybrid-style forgiveness.

The hollow head design features cup face technology that offers variable face-thickness, which enhances off-center hits and maximizes center strikes, Kamoda said.  The shape of the head is engineered to position the center of gravity (CG) deeper and lower in the clubface to promote maximum ball speed. The head is nickel chrome plated with a satin finish.

The Type 7 utility iron comes in lofts of 20, 23 and 26 degrees. Its MSRP is $280 and is available at fourteengolf.com.

Fourteen Golf is well known for the quality of its wedges. The incredibly high spin rate of Fourteen Golf’s RM-22 wedges is a result of their innovative reverse muscle technology design, which increases the weight at the top of the club head thereby raising the center of gravity higher on the face, Kamoda said.

MSRP is $200 each for the RM-22 wedges, which are available at golf retailers, custom club fitters, and at fourteengolfonline.com.  The RM-22 Tour RAW wedges are available at custom club makers and at fourteengolfonline.com for $290 each, MSRP.

A premier designer and manufacturer of high-quality golf clubs, Fourteen Golf has been part of 70 professional victories since 2010.
