No.1 Performance Tee on Tour Bests 24 Competitors

Sunset Beach, NC November 9, 2009 – Evolve Golf, Inc.

News Summary

  • Evolve Golf confirms that its Epoch performance tee finished first in GolfTest USA’s 2009 “Comprehensive Golf Tee Test”, besting 24 competing designs from every other leading manufacturer.
  • Determined by a panel of 60 testers rating each tee in 10 categories, the test examined performance, appearance, ease of use, durability and eco-friendly composition. As clearly shown by the results (viewable here), respondents definitively preferred the Epoch tee based on its combination of superior performance and durability in an appealing yet environmentally-friendly design.
  • Since its 2004 debut, the Epoch has been part of 123 major Tour wins, including 46 PGA Tour victories, and is the only performance tee with radius posts that span the width of a golf ball dimple. This unique feature creates the lowest coefficient of friction of any tee, eliminating deflection at impact and increasing ball speed and control. It has been scientifically proven via a series of rigorous independent robotic tests combined with extensive player testing to provide improvements of up to 12 yards distance and 9 yards accuracy.

Quotes

“This independent test plainly illustrates that the advantages of using the Epoch are obvious to the vast majority,” says BJ Maloy, Founder and CEO of Evolve Golf. “The rapid adoption of our tees on the PGA Tour is well documented. Now this collection of highly objective testers has confirmed beyond any doubt that the average golfer also clearly prefers the Epoch over every other leading brand.”

“What really resonated with our panel was that the Epoch not only delivered on its performance promises, claiming to offer the lowest coefficient of friction, but was also a favorite in the ease of use categories,” says Wayne Williams, Testing Director of GolfTest USA. “The Epoch recorded high scores across the board, offering the best performance, durability, and overall experience for our testers.”

    Apologies, we will have an online store and store locator up very soon. In the interim you can order from several of our online retail partners, tgw.com, edwinwatts.com, golfsmith.com, intheholegolf.com along with a handful of others. Our store finder is now up.

    I am curious, what makes your tee the best performer? Ready to order some (along with friends) if not a marketing gimmick.

    Evolve’s Epoch has been a part of 124 major Tour wins, including 46 PGA Tour victories. The reason for the Epoch’s success on tour is due in large part because it is the only golf tee with radius posts that span the width of a golf ball dimple. This unique feature creates the lowest coefficient of friction of any tee, eliminating deflection at impact and increasing ball speed and control. The Epoch isn’t a magic cure… it is simply a better golf tee. We make our tees to be better for the environment and better for your game. We hope you like them.

    Just ask any of the more than 100 tour professionals that have won on tour playing the Epoch.  Just ask any of the more than 700 golf clubs that have replaced the wood tee with the Epoch.
