HIRZL Staffer David Brinker Wins United States Senior Long Drive Championship Masters Division
HIRZL, the #1 Golf Glove in Long Drive and the leading specialist for high performance golf gloves, proudly announces its HIRZL professional golf staff member David Brinker added another victory to his list of wins – the 2015 United States Senior Long Drive Championship.
This boundless golf tournament was held on June 20th and June 21st at the Red Tail Driving Range in Decantur, IL. David Brinker competed in the Masters Division which is for people of 65 and older. He competed against a field of seven highly qualified long drive specialists. Brinker’s winning drive was 306-yards which is impressive as the ground was saturated from rain reducing the ball roll significantly and the winds were gusting at 10 to 15 MPH.
“We congratulate David for this remarkable achievement. His dedication to the sport of long drive combined with his intensive training efforts have led him to this victory which is impressive. HIRZL is proud to be associated with his win,” said Steve Gray, HIRZL Vice President of Sales and Marketing.
Brinker has won multiple titles including; 2005 Senior International Long Drive Championship, 2012 Re/Max World Long Drive Championship (Legends 60+) and now, the 2015 United States Long Drive Championship (Masters 65+). He has also been a 10-time Re/Max Long Drive Finalist.
“As a veteran on the “Long Drive Tour,” David understands the importance of the grip and how it effects his accuracy as well as distance. Slight slippage during the golf swing can equate to a loss of yards and a title. For his best performance, he uses the new HIRZL Control Golf Glove,” added Gray.
The new HIRZL Control Golf Glove has been redeveloped in several specific areas which help LDA Professionals like David Brinker as well as all golfers perform better. For starters, HIRZL research data proves that the during the golf swing the pressure on the index finger, known as the “trigger” finger, increases as it helps drive the club down toward the ball. Therefore the HIRZL engineering team manufactured the index finger on the new Trust Control Glove with Kangaroo Leather which is typically used on the palm section of HIRZL golf gloves. This new feature enhances the golf grip as well as its durability.
Another key change is the stitching on the thumb. Ergonomic mechanics data shows that the thumb undergoes some motion during the backswing so the improved Trust Control Golf Glove now features a double stitched thumb for increased endurance.
For optimum performance and reduction of overall glove movement and slippage, the improved Trust Control now features a performance fit which virtually feels like a second layer of skin instead of a golf glove. This new silhouette which combines cabretta leather with air mesh technology, rivals golf gloves manufactured by the large and mass golf glove companies.
The redeveloped Trust Control golf glove features a structured palm section made of Kangaroo leather trademarked as GRIPPP™ Technology. The name is a reference that exemplifies how the technology maximizes the grip and in all weather conditions. In addition, this significant aspect on the Trust Control golf glove provides a 100% “Sweat Free” palm.
