Zero Friction Attains 5th Position in Market Share, According to Golf Datatech’s July Numbers

(OAK BROOK TERRACE, IL) – The newly released July report from Golf Datatech results shows Zero Friction, maker of technologically advanced performance golf products, has attained the 5th position in market share for golf gloves in the U.S.

“It is incredible to believe this has happened in roughly 24 months,” stated John Iacono, President of Zero Friction. “I believe this is a testament to the quality of our gloves.”

Golf Datatech provides the golf industry with specialized market research covering retail sales, inventory, pricing and distribution, along with consumer attitude and usage studies and strategic sales and marketing consulting. The Golf Datatech Retail Market Reports provide data on market share, unit sales, dollar sales, average pricing, inventories and distribution for: golf balls, golf clubs (woods, irons, putters and wedges), footwear, bags and gloves.

“With the platform of offerings and current success we believe we can move into the number two spot in the next 18 months,” said Iacono. “The reviews on the new DistancePro GPS Glove have been excellent and we have been taking orders daily for shipment in November.”

Zero Friction released its first golf glove, a one-size fits all Compression golf glove, at the PGA Merchandise Show in 2014.  In 2015, Zero Friction released its Storm All Weather Golf Gloves (Rain & Cold) and a pure 100-percent Cabretta Leather Glove.

Late last year, Johnny Miller joined Zero Friction as a part-owner and endorsee for Zero Friction; and at the 2016 PGA Merchandise Show, the Johnny Miller Motion Fit Glove was introduced.

In August at the PGA Demo & Fashion Show, Zero Friction unveiled its new DistancePro GPS Glove, the first wearable GPS technology on a golf glove.

The Zero Friction DistancePro GPS Glove is the ultimate in accuracy and convenience. Powered by Bluetooth, the device sits conveniently on the glove flap and weighs less than half an ounce. The readout gives distances to the front, center and back of the green on over 35,000 golf courses programmed worldwide. The DistancePro GPS battery provides over 400 hours of golf, and the GPS device is transferrable to replacement Zero Friction gloves.
