Victoria, TX: March 27, 2014 – SCOR™ Golf, makers of the innovative SCOR4161 line of scoring clubs announced the launch of its new SCOR™ Golf web site at www.scorgolf.com.
“Our new website offers a clear presentation of our revolutionary scoring club technology and the Iron Byron testing that proves our performance superiority,” said Terry Koehler, President of SCOR Golf. “We’ve proven that conventional ‘wedge’ designs and most new short irons are seriously deficient in forgiveness and accuracy. We have raised the bar significantly for performance of the high-lofted clubs, and are eager to share the Iron Byron proof that SCOR4161 precision scoring clubs are up to 94% more accurate than conventional wedges and most short irons.”
The new website design was driven by input from SCOR™ Golf’s existing and prospective customers and is designed to make it easier for golfers to put together the exact set of precision scoring clubs to make their scoring range performance much better. “Visitors to our web site will find more information about scoring club technology and performance than anywhere else,” added Koehler. “This is the one place in golf where players of all skill levels can put together the exact set of short range clubs that will improve their scoring.”
The new web site allows visitors to engage in the interactive SCORFit™ (patents pending) online analysis to determine their optimum set make-up to blend to their irons. Or they can proceed directly to the SCOR Golf Custom Shop and experience a guided process to build their optimum set.
