Ocean Isle, NC May, 8 2009 – Evolve Golf, Inc.
- Evolve Golf – maker of the #1 performance tee on the PGA Tour – announces CEO and Founder BJ Maloy has been named one of the industry’s “Top 40 Under 40” executives for 2009 by Sporting Goods Business.
- The annual awards honor young, highly accomplished individuals who are leading the way in the sporting goods market. Selected from more than 500 nominees, the winners were determined based on years of service, level of responsibility attained, accomplishments and commitment to teamwork. Each honoree is recognized as having a direct and positive impact on the industry as a whole.
- Sporting Goods Business acknowledged Maloy as a successful entrepreneur who has made a significant mark in the golf industry by turning simple concepts into sustainable ideas. In 2008 he earned GOLF Magazine’s “Innovator of the Year” award for creating the Epoch tee, a technically-advanced, eco-friendly product that helps improve performance for players of all abilities.
- A part of 111 major Tour wins – including 36 PGA Tour victories – Epoch 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 off the tee.
- The Epoch 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.
- New for 2009, the Vireo-S3 tee features a wider, deeper cup for greater stability than traditional wood offerings. It is also the first Evolve Golf tee to incorporate the company’s groundbreaking marking system and coinciding proprietary Internet application — The Sweet Spot System — showing the proper tee height for consistent alignment between the golf ball and driver’s “sweet spot,” <a href=http://www.evolvegolf.com/settings.php</a> promoting increased distance and accuracy.
