|TUGAŽ DEBUTS AS FIRST-OF-ITS-KIND, MULTI-PURPOSE GOLF CLUB REST (August 17, 2010)|
Ideal For Cart and Cart Path-Only Golf; TUGA Secures Clubs on Fairways and Around Greens; Eliminates Wet Grips and Lost Clubs ; Helps to Speed Play
TUGA Wallingford , Connecticut , September 15, 2003-2005 . Golfers playing on cart and cart path-only courses, frustrated with the nuisance of placing their clubs on wet, chemically-treated fairways and greens, today got relief with the introduction of TUGAŽ , The Ultimate Golf Accessory .
Unveiled by TUGA, Inc., the patented (U.S. Patent #6,962,536) TUGA golf club rest is a three-in-one device that enables golfers to conveniently stand multiple clubs upright on fairways and around greens, converts into a telescopic ball retriever, and provides a convenient resting place for a cigar or cigarette. TUGA is ideal for players who ride or walk, as it fits easily into a golf bag alongside clubs, and is removed and replaced with clubs when needed. Further, it has a curved head that enables golfers to stand their clubs upright, eliminating wet grips, sore backs, and lost clubs.
TUGA is made with a brushed aluminum shaft and firm, molded heat resistant ABS plastic heads, making it lightweight and durable. About the length of a pitching wedge, TUGA comes in a stylish silver and black color which blends nicely, and is stored easily, in a golf bag alongside any club model. The base of TUGA features a rounded steel spike that enables easy insertion and removal from the turf.
TUGA's multi-purpose design allows it to transform in seconds into a ball retriever when its telescoping shaft is extended and its club rest head is replaced by an accompanying ball retriever head. TUGA's club rest head is also designed to hold cigars or cigarettes, preventing loss and keeping them off the chemically treated turf as well.
"TUGA is a classy-looking and utterly practical device that fits easily into a golf bag. It's useful when transporting clubs around the course, thus speeding up play," said Dr. Rich Jacoby, founder of TUGA, Inc. "Equally important, as golfers continue to be frustrated with having to drop their clubs on wet or chemically treated fairways and greens , TUGA keeps clubs upright, dry, and clean."
Jeff Hall, inventor of TUGA and vice president of sales adds, "I'm a golfer. When I first saw a club rest, I was intrigued, but thought it could do much more. I started to imagine something that looked like it belonged in a golf bag, was multipurpose, and convenient to use - almost like a modern day caddie. TUGA addresses many issues for the golfer, greatly enhancing the golfing experience."
TUGA, which has a suggested retail price of $24.95, can be purchased immediately at www.TUGA.com.
