Virtually all serious golfers are familiar with the putters from Heavy Putter. Heck, it seems that lately it is hard to avoid hearing about Heavy Putters, due in part to John Daly’s use of their products. Well, how does Heavy Putter plan to capitalize on their recent spike in popularity?
Well, on Friday they filed a trademark application indicating their intent to use the trademark Heavy Wedge™ on “golf clubs”; and it doesn’t take a genius to speculate that those “golf clubs” might just be a new line of wedges! The trademark application is US Serial No. 77768967.
While I have never owned a Heavy Putter product, I have tried them out on many occasions and have to admit that I like how they feel. Therefore, I can’t wait for the launch of the Heavy Wedge™!
