(OAK BROOK TERRACE, IL) – The Zero Friction DistancePro Golf Glove took top honors in the Product Ingenuity - Emerging Companies - Misc. Products category of the 24th Annual ING Industry Honors awards program at last week’s PGA Merchandise Show in Orlando, Fla.
Nominees in 11 categories are submitted throughout the year from anyone in the golf industry. Sub-committees that include experts in each category then trim the entries to the top three in each category. ING members then vote electronically to determine the winners.
The Zero Friction DistancePro GPS Glove was on the ballot with Biion Golf Shoes and GolfBuddyLD2 GPS in the Product Ingenuity-Misc. Products category.
“What an honor for our company and our staff to receive this prestigious award from ING," said Zero Friction President John Iacono. “Zero Friction prides itself in creating technologically advanced products, and being recognized from others in the golf industry is incredible.”
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.
