WEB.COM WNB GOLF CLASSIC DELIVERS A SECOND PLACE FINISH FOR STX GOLF
BALTIMORE, MD. – September 24, 2012 – STX Golf, world-renowned as an industry pioneer in putter innovation with its patented Soft Face Insert Technology, announced today that the Sync Series 7 (SS7) belly putter with its innovative, avant-garde head and face insert was put into play by a Web.com Tour Professional at WNB Golf Classic to tie for second place.
According to STX Director of Golf Steve Henneman, “The Company is gaining awareness and acceptance on the Web.com Tour. We’ve had representation on the PGA Tour for years but we’re relatively new on the Web.com Tour and within two weeks we’ve had two Top-10 finishes. This substantial second place finish comes on the heels of a Top-10 finish at the Boise Open.”
The SS7 belly putter was used at Midland Country Club’s golf course to shoot a 68, 68, 66, and 70 for a total of 16-under par -- just one stroke behind the leader. He might have missed being the WNB Golf Classic Champion by one stroke but his performance catapulted him to number #8 on the Web.com money list which could be enough to attain his ultimate goal of a 2013 PGA card. In addition, he was ranked number #4 in the field for “Putts per Green.”
“We’re thrilled that this golf professional played the SS7 last weekend and congratulate him for a steady play throughout the season. He demonstrates how important putting is,” adds Henneman.
The highly developed SS7 belly putter represents years of ingenuity. STX was the first company to develop a belly or long putter.
In 2002, the company had PGA Touring Professional Scott McCarron on staff who earned 1.5 million dollars wielding a STX Sync long putter. Since then, STX has continued to innovate this every growing category and the SS7 proves it.
The SS7 putter features a heavier head with perimeter weighting, perfectly suited for both belly and long length putters. Its wing-like sections add balance with weight. These segments are also designed for an easy, non-drag take away. Optic openings aid with alignment as well as weight distribution. The center shafted SS7 putter head is finished with a distinctive black PVD coating and weighs either 450 grams for the belly or 500 grams for the long. The belly lengths are 41-inches and 43-inches. The SS7 long putter is available in 48-inches and 50-inches.
