STX Congratulates Amateur Golf Star Annie Park of Levittown, N.Y. on Qualification for U.S. Women’s Open
17-Year-Old High School Junior Told New York Newsday that Switch to STX Putter Helped Her Medal at Qualifying Tournament
Baltimore, MD – May 21, 2012 – STX congratulates Annie Park of Levittown, N.Y. on her recent medalist performance in a U.S. Women’s Open Sectional Qualifying tournament.
Park, of Levittown, N.Y., qualified for the U.S. Women’s Open this July by winning a sectional tournament last week at Trump National Golf Club in Colts Neck, N.J. In the New York Newsday recap of the win, reporter Mark Herrmann wrote, “Park said that switching to a new STX putter really helped, particularly in the second round, when she made eight birdies and only one bogey.”
According to the Newsday report, Park advanced to the semifinals of the U.S Women's Amateur last year and announced recently that she will attend the University of Southern California following graduation. The U.S. Women's Open will be held at Blackwolf Run in Kohler, Wis. July 5-8, 2012.
Park uses the highly customizable ProFIT 6 putter with interchangeable weights and inserts that allows the player to adapt the putter to all playing conditions. The STX ProFIT Series Putters include three STX inserts, the black insert provides 25% quicker forward roll than any other face on the market, the red insert adds 3” of distance on a 40’ putt, and the green insert adds 6” of distance when compared to the black insert on the same 40’ putt. STX soft face technology gives the putter superior distance and directional control by increasing face dwell time and maximizing the coefficient of friction between the Putter face and ball.
STX has no official relationship with Park, the company simply wanted to congratulate her on the win and wish her success at the U.S. Women’s Open.
