Weighted putter helps John Daly's famous stroke

Golf major champion John Daly used a new Heavy Putter mid-weight K4 model en route to a runner-up finish at the PGA European Tour's BMW Italian Open last weekend at Royal Park I Roveri in Torino, Italy.

Using the Heavy Putter in competition for the first time, Daly shot four rounds in the 60s, buoyed by a top-25 ranking in both the "Putts per Round" and "Putts per GIR" categories. This marked Daly's best result on the PGA European Tour since winning the 2001 BMW International Open.

Daly's tie for second in Italy comes just one week after the Heavy Putter was used by the runner-up at the PGA European Tour's Open de Espana, and two weeks after a player on the Champions Tour switched to the brand and captured the Liberty Mutual Legends of Golf. Success for the Heavy Putter includes wins on the PGA, European, Champions, Asian, Nationwide and Canadian Tours.

With a total weight of 750 grams, the MID-WEIGHT Series is lighter than previous Heavy Putter models yet heavier than traditional offerings. It is available in five classic designs offered in a rich black "PVD" or silver satin finish, and features Boccieri Golf's unprecedented counter-balance theory of added weight in the head and grip. This causes the body to engage its larger muscles for a consistent swing path, uniform pace, precise distance and directional control, tightening end-over-end golf ball roll.

Look for our review of this putter coming soon.
