(OAK BROOK TERRACE, IL) - Zero Friction, maker of technologically advanced performance golf products, will hold a “Fireside Chat with Johnny Miller” at the Southern California PGA Golf Industry & Business Summit on March 13, 2017 at the Riverside Convention Center.
Miller won two major championships and 25 PGA Tour events before joining the NBC broadcast team in 1990. Miller, elected into the World Golf Hall of Fame in 1998, was known for his colorful attire when competing as one of the game’s best players in the 1970’s and 1980’s. In 2015, Miller announced he was part owner and endorsee for Zero Friction.
“What attracted me to Zero Friction in the beginning was the technology that was involved in creating such unique golf products. The products are different. They offer something that others don’t," said Miller, now an NBC golf commentator. “I am excited about where this company is going.”
Zero Friction is responsible for establishing the performance golf tee market, creating the first and only performance tee to ever carry the PGA TOUR logo. The company's patented three- and four-prong designs reduce the contact area between the ball and tee by 66 percent for longer, straighter drives. Since the debut in 2005, the Zero Friction tee has earned more than 70 victories on the PGA TOUR and was official merchandise of The Open Championship at Turnberry in 2009.
Zero Friction joined the glove market three years ago. Today, the company has a variety of golf gloves on the market including the original Compress Fit glove, Cabretta Leather glove, All Storm Weather glove, the Johnny Miller Motion-Fit Glove, and the new DistancePro GPS Glove. Zero Friction has maintained the 5th position in the glove market for 24-straight months according to Golf Datatech. For more information, visit zerofriction.com or call 847-436-4262.
