KZG Introduces The New XRS•• Wedges

NORTH HOLLYWOOD, Calif. (March 13, 2014) – KZG, the #1 Custom ProLine™, has introduced the XRS•• Wedges for enhanced short game performance. Featuring precision milled grooves and a micro-milled face for maximum spin, the XRS•• wedges also have a dual relieved sole that allows players to open the club face without increasing bounce.

“We are getting rave reviews on our new XRS•• wedges. Outstanding performance, a wide spectrum of loft and bounce options and availability in two beautiful finishes make these a sure winner,” reports Jennifer King, President of KZG. “We offer six different models of wedges to give our network of professional fitters and teachers the ability to select the perfect design features for every golfer, regardless of skill, size, strength and/or budget. Our new XRS•• Wedges offer superior performance for the avid golfer who also wants exceptional value.”

The XRS•• Wedges are heat-treated for a soft feel and greater workability around the green. The micro-milled face assures high spin rates with pin-point accuracy. The sole features a C-grind for ease in shot-making and will help every golfer expand their short game repertoire.

The wide selection of loft and bounce options assures consistent contact for either hard or soft turf conditions. Golfers will enjoy having a choice of finish on their wedges: either a beautiful brushed satin or sleek matte black.

Professional fitters can easily make lie and loft adjustments up to four degrees. Available in RH 50°, 52°, 54°, 56°/12°, 56°/8°, 58°, 60°/10° and 60°/4° lofts and LH: 52°, 56° and 60° lofts.

MSRP starts at $119 and can vary depending on custom shaft options.


Woods tops early odds for 2014 Masters

World No. 1 Tiger Woods, who won five events during the PGA Tour’s 2013 season yet came up short at all four majors, stands atop the odds to win the 2014 Masters. Woods tops the list at 6-1 despite an ailing back that prompted a WD at the Honda Classic and a final-round 78 at the WGC-Cadillac Championship. One has to wonder how much more of a favorite to win he could be with a strong (read: healthy) showing at the Arnold Palmer Invitational next week.

Jordan Spieth back at Valspar C’ship, where his fast-rising career took off

PALM HARBOR, Fla. – Being back at Innisbrook is enough to make Jordan Spieth wonder if his entire season boiled down to three holes.
One was a two-putt par. The other was a tough flop shot from 50 feet that he knocked in for birdie on the 17th hole. The last one – perhaps the most important – was a bunker shot to 7 feet and a par putt on the final hole for a 1-under 70 to tie for seventh.

That was worth $148,893.

That was enough money to give him special temporary membership on the PGA Tour, key for earning a full tour card. Before holing out that chip, Spieth was projected to be $195 short of temporary membership, and who knows what would have happened if he didn’t nail it down that day at Innisbrook.
