Lovemark Buys Boccieri Secret Grip & Wins Web.com Midwest Classic
From the Arizona Golf News Desk at the Arizona Golf Authority
Following birdies at 15 and 16, Lovemark holed a clutch 15-footer on the 18th green to seal his one-shot victory at the Jack Nicklaus Golf Club at LionsGate in Overland Park, Kansas.
Stephen Boccieri, President and CEO of Boccieri Golf, added Lovemark to the company’s overcrowded trophy wall acknowledging tour victories by players using his company’s golf equipment and noted,
“Early acclaim for the Secret Grip led this great young player to purchase it three weeks ago at The Bear’s Club and we’re happy to see the immediate, positive results. We’ve preached the benefits of counterbalanced equipment for years, and the validation by Tour players demonstrates its ability to maximize performance in all areas of the game.”
Players purchasing their own equipment and winning tournaments with it isn’t a new phenomenon. Gary Player always maintained he acquired his famous putter “Blackie” from a used-club barrel.
Jim Furyk famously pocketed $11.35 million in 2010 after winning both the Tour Championship and FedEx Cup with a self-purchased putter from Joe & Leigh’s Discount Pro Golf Shop, just down the street from TPC Boston in Norton, Mass.
“I don’t recall ever making a putt to win like that,” said Lovemark. “It’s one of those putts you practice when fooling around and telling yourself ‘this is to win the British Open’. It felt really good to make it.”
Lovemark closed with a 5-under-par 66 for a 72-hole total of 18-under-par 266.
Endorsed by Jack Nicklaus, the Secret Grip is easily installed on clubs from any manufacturer for an instant boost in performance. The counterbalance is achieved via a tungsten insert in the butt-end, combined with a rubber compound 40-percent heavier than what is used in standard grips.
Available alongside the full-swing Secret Grip, the putter version may be purchased at Dick’s Sporting Goods, Golf Galaxy and Edwin Watts, as well www.SecretGrip.com.

About Boccieri Golf
The Secret Grip, endorsed by Jack Nicklaus, is Boccieri Golf’s latest innovation.
Founded in 2005 by Stephen Boccieri, the company’s popular Heavy Putter collection and Control Series line of full-swing products were the first to integrate counterweight principals. This unique approach to club design is proven to benefit golfers of all abilities, as strategically placed weight in the butt-end of the shaft produces a higher balance point for smoother, more repeatable swings from driver through putter.
The company is headquartered in a state-of-the-art Research and Performance Center at 15816 N. Greenway-Hayden Loop in Scottsdale, Arizona. The 9,000-square-foot facility offers golfers a variety of services, including custom club fitting, high-tech swing analysis and practice time on life-like simulators.
Boccieri Golf equipment has played a key role in victories on the PGA, European, Champions, Nationwide, Asian, Canadian and European Challenge Tours.
