Mantis Golf Adds Japan to Its Growing Sales Network

WILTON, Conn. (June 7, 2014) – Mantis Golf (, maker of fine putters with specialized patented qualities to enhance putting success, has added Japan to its growing sales-distribution network. Mantis distribution in Japan currently is directed mostly to off-course entities, including both retail and wholesale firms.

“As our putters begin to be recognized and sought after throughout North America and beyond,” said Chris Maher, CEO of Mantis Golf, “we look forward to expanding our worldwide market to satisfy the demand. We are pleased to add Japan to this initiative.”

Mantis Golf putters will be sold to various retail stores in Japan, and to Tsuruya Golf, a growing Japanese wholesale entity.

This year Mantis Golf introduced its new Mantis ‘B’ blade putter, which, along with the original Mantis Mallet putter, features superior quality and craftsmanship, including classic design and the signature Mantis patented green finish to avoid distracting the golfer’s eye. The Mantis Mallet and Mantis ‘B’ putters are available in various lengths, are constructed of the finest materials and feature design characteristics of great appeal.
