BACK 9 USA Offers Customizable TOURevolution™ Headcover at 2009 PGA Merchandise Show

Patented pom-pom headcover available with custom logo embroidery, lower minimums and special limited-time show offer.

Woburn, MA, January 23, 2009 --( Back 9 USA, an emerging designer and manufacturer of golf headwear, apparel and accessories, will introduce their new customizable TOURevolution™ pom-pom headcover at the 2009 PGA Merchandise Show, to be held at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Florida from January 29-31, 2009.

The patented TOURevolution™ headcover, like the rest of Back 9 USA’s product line, combines the ingenuity of modern materials with classic designs. By pairing elements of the traditional knit pom-pom headcover with the newer, stronger and easily embroidered neoprene material, the introduction of a custom logo TOURevolution headcover brings together the ultimate in branding, club protection, and old school golf style.

“This is the ultimate accessory for green grass shops looking for something different,” said Andy Hydorn, president and co-founder of Back 9 USA. “The pom-pom headcover gives a bold branding opportunity but still retains the classic look with the pom-pom that everyone loves. By having a variety of colors and a minimum order of 36, it’s hard to beat.”

Back 9 USA is sweetening the deal by offering a special for orders placed at the PGA Show: purchase the minimum 36 and receive an additional 6 headcovers free. Available in 1, 3, and X, the headcover comes in four sock colors and nine pom-pom color combinations to choose from. As is standard in most headcovers, the TOURevolution™ features a long sock for optimum club protection and fits the larger clubs up to 460cc. Custom embroidery is available along the head to create a one-of-a-kind look.

Back 9 USA originally designed one-of-a-kind TOURevolution™ headcovers exclusively for Callaway Golf staff professionals at the 2006 Masters and for Gary Player at the 2007 Masters. The buzz from those events led to specialty headcovers for Callaway Golf’s 25th Anniversary as well as the first-ever Wayne Gretzky Invitational on the Nationwide Tour. Back 9 USA has subsequently been commissioned to design headcovers for the US and European teams at the 2009 Solheim Cup and for the US Open at Pebble Beach in 2010.

“The response to our specialty headcovers has been overwhelming because everyone who sees them wants one! We are excited that we have come up with a solution that allows us to embroider these headcovers domestically. This solution makes them a great option for the many green grass customers looking to sell in the headcover category that has been virtually taken away by the golf club manufacturers,” Hydorn said.

Back 9 USA will be exhibiting at the 2009 PGA Merchandise Show in the Apparel Zone section in booth 8293 at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Florida, January 29-31.
