(Granbury, TX: April 24, 2012) – After setting an all time record for glove sales at the 2011 Haggin Oaks Golf Expo, HIRZL is pleased to announce that it will be returning for the 2012 Expo, April 27-29 at the Haggin Oaks Golf Complex in Sacramento, California.
In addition to exhibiting at the Expo, HIRZL will be featured at the Game Improvement Stage, daily at 11 am, with RE/MAX World Long Drive Champion Pat Dempsey as he hosts “Secrets of the RE/MAX Long Drive Champions,” sponsored by UST. HIRZL is the official and exclusive glove sponsor of the RE/MAX Long Drive Championships.
According to Mike Pompei, buyer for Haggin Oaks, in 2011, HIRZL out-sold the nearest glove manufacturer by a factor of three times and set the all-time record in the event’s 36 year history for most sales of any glove manufacturer. “We have been carrying the HIRZL glove since the spring of 2010 and we have seen a steady increase in sales every month,” stated Pompei. “To see HIRZL out-sell every other brand we carry during our Golf Expo was true testament to how well these gloves perform and how well they are being received by our customers.”
“We were extremely pleased to see our HIRZL gloves do so well with the Haggin Oaks customers and we look forward to an even better Expo in 2012,” said Gary Sheppard, President and CEO of HIRZL North America. “We are introducing to Haggin Oaks, for the first time, our SOFFFT Flex glove, and we anticipate significant interest and excitement for trying out all of our products in our HIRZL tent and outdoor hitting bay from the 23,000+ expected golfers attending the Expo.”
“Thanks to our unique technology and innovative design, HIRZL golf gloves provide an optimal grip in all weather conditions, creating greater swing control. Ideally suited for all playing levels and ages, HIRZL gloves can enhance the golf experience,” added Sheppard.
