HIRZL, the #1 Long Drive Golf Glove with dozens of victories in the past three years, proudly announces that HIRZL Staffers Bobby Wilson and Sandra Carlborg both captured 2014 RE/MAX World Long Drive Championship titles in their respective divisions at the Mesquite Sports and Event Complex in Mesquite, Nevada this past week.
HIRZL Professional Staffer Bobby Wilson defeated fellow “Hall of Famer” Pat Dempsey in the final round of the 2014 RE/MAX World Long Drive Championship with a 364-yard drive to take the Grand Champions Division title. “Bobby continues to live up to his ‘Hall of Famer’ status. He won his fourth World LDA trophy this week, making him one of the winningest LDA professionals to date. We at HIRZL congratulate him for another impressive victory and thank him for his continued support of HIRZL and our golf gloves,” commented Steve Gray, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at HIRZL.
Another remarkable win for HIRZL came from HIRZL’s own Sandra Carlborg who faced another HIRZL Staffer Heather LeMaster, the former champion in the final round. They battled fiercely but Carlborg hit a giant drive of 333-yards to defeat LeMaster and reclaim her Ladies World LDA title. “This was an exciting win for HIRZL – both competitors not only are staunch supporters of HIRZL but they both are LDA Champions which creates a lot of awareness to the sport of Long Drive as well as to our brand. We are profusely proud of them both,” said Steve Gray, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at HIRZL.
HIRZL Golf Gloves are a dominate brand on the LDA and particularly at the 2014 RE/MAX World Long Drive Championship which results in the tagline — #1 Long Drive Golf Glove. These golfing professionals possess club head speeds that can exceed a 150-MPH at times which can cause heat, friction and slippage. HIRZL and its proprietary technology provides the best golf glove grip POSSIBLE!
“Hirzl gloves provide the ultimate grip traction in all playing conditions due to our proprietary Kangaroo “Gridlock” leather pattern and treatment process. This grip technology performs for the life of the glove offering the highest level of maintained performance,” added Gray.
The 2014 RE/MAX World Long Drive Champions play a variety of HIRZL gloves but in this year’s tournament they relied on the Trust Control HIRZL Golf Glove. The specialized HIRZL GRIPPP technology ensures maximum grip under all conditions and provides the golfer the opportunity to effortlessly maintain a firm grip, in order to achieve longer shots and improve the individual’s control over the ball’s direction.
HIRZL has distinguished itself as a category leader in high performance, technical, sporting gloves. Their innovative glove technologies has earned an exclusive 2013 Golf Digest “Hot List” ranking which is determined by the industry’s leading panel of judges and golf writers. In addition, HIRZL was the only boutique brand recognized in the prestigious test.
HIRZL, headquartered in Switzerland, with North American operations based in Granbury, TX, is a leading specialist for high performance sports gloves. HIRZL’s focus is solely on gloves with products specifically designed for golf and cycling, which is in contrast to many sports manufacturers with wide ranges of products spanning equipment, shoes and fashion. HIRZL’s gloves are designed with the latest scientific, technical and ergonomic mechanics data on how sports equipment is used on the hands. The company philosophy is based upon the firm belief that gloves are an essential part of the equipment for many types of sports. When gloves are used in sports, they become the only true link between the hands of the sportsperson and their equipment.
HIRZL Gloves Manufactured for The “Ultimate Glove Experience:”
HIRZL manufactures their high performance gloves with only the finest genuine leather, natural kangaroo or cabretta leather which has been additionally tanned with a propriety technology. The leather is individually stretched by hand and table cut, effectively ensuring the direction of stretch is controlled in each piece. For ventilation comfort a membrane directs the airflow and breathability characteristics to create a micro-environment for the skin to breathe more easily. The stretch fit feature provides a strategically based perfect fit and wearing comfort. All HIRZL gloves are constructed with a 45-degree “Pre-curved finger system” in consideration to the natural curvature of the hand and to avoid bunching effects and guarantee a perfect fit. For addition comfort, a sweat band made with terry towel absorbs sweat and water at the wrist area which also has a warming effect when temperatures are low. Form fit inserts are strategically placed in the palm section of the glove to reduce pleats. A low wrist cut construction provides 360-degrees of unlimited movement.
