Howdy Fellow Spies- I am the president of a non-profit in Sacramento, CA. We held our annual fundraiser on 9/30 and Cork Tree Putter Grips owner Marc Boggia was kind enough to help us by supplying grips of various sizes for sale with 1/2 of the proceeds going to our foundation. Well, it being a tournament and all and people didn't have the chance to install them prior, we didn't sell as many as we'd have liked. Marc is allowing me to sell them here, still with a portion of the proceeds going to our charity, the Jireh Foundation (www.jirehfdn.org) Here's a recent review by GolfSpy_Dave: http://forum.mygolfspy.com/topic/13899-cork-tree-gimme-putter-grip-first-impressions/ Here's what we got left: 2 Stumpy grips in black (sized similar to SS slim 3.0) 3 Bandits Black, Red, Pink (sized similar to SS Slim) 3 Gimme Grips black, red and pink 7 Slim Jims 1 black, 2 red, 2 blue 2 pink You can PM me here, but all payments will go directly to the foundation's paypal account.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE December 15, 2014 FROM CORK TREE - THE BEST KEPT SECRET IN PUTTER GRIP TECHNOLOGY NOW AVAILABLE SAO BRAS DE ALPORTEL, PORTUGAL - There's a brand-new golf grip material quickly gaining popularity. The Cork Tree has debuted four new putter grips made of cork leather. Why cork? It's proven to be the perfect complement to leather in a grip. Cork leather putter grips provide an overall user experience that cannot be achieved with any other putter grip material known to man. Cork is 100% natural, feels soft in the hands, and improves its playability well beyond other materials when a golfer's hands are hot or sweaty -- as well as in humid playing conditions. "That means the grip won't slip in your hands -- regardless of how moist your hands are," says company co-founder Marc Boggia, a British PGA member. "That lets you confidently putt away without any tension in your hands and arms, promoting a more fluid stroke. Once you try it, I know you'll agree that it feels amazing. Plus, it cleans very easily -- dirt wipes away with a wet cloth." Cork Tree putter grips are designed and used by Championship winning Tour professionals who make their living from playing golf. There are currently more than twenty PGA Tour players using Cork Tree cork leather putter grips including the winner of the recent Nedbank Golf Challenge in South Africa. A multiple major winner on the PGA Tour is also using the Cork Tree putter grip. Cork's honeycomb cell structure is key. Each cell is a 14-sided polyhedron filled with air, making it an extremely strong and flexible membrane that's waterproof and airtight. Cork bark is about 89% air, giving it a low density. But when it's compressed, air isn't squeezed out, because the cell membranes won't release it. So it returns to its original shape when the compression is removed. The four initial putter grips include the Midsize ($39.95), Feather Light ($39.95), Parallel ($39.95) and Tour ($39.95) models. They're all extremely durable, absorb any impact vibration and are impermeable to water. About Cork Tree The Cork Tree -- the world's first company to produce golf products in cork leather -- was co-founded by Nuno Nascimento and Marc Boggia. From an early age, Nascimento went with his grandfather to the Portuguese family cork oak forest learning all the tricks that nature presents. He studied and tested trees to find the best cork bark, and then transformed it into cork products suitable for commercialization. The Cork Tree mission is to maximize performance, increase confidence and ultimately improve putting statistics for every golfer using the Cork Tree putter grip. Cork Tree also strives to be a contributor to a more eco-friendly world and cork leather offers this while adding functionality, durability and quality. Today, the Nascimento family continues to sell cork bark to the cork stopper industry from its own 500 hectares cork plantation. Conscious of its hereditary property, The Cork Tree family continues to invest hundreds of thousands of dollars in developing, protecting and maintenance of the properties. Beyond cleaning and fertilizing the cork oak forest, the plantation continues to grow with some 40,000 new cork trees being planted in the past eight years. Boggia, an Englishman, has been a member of the British PGA since 1981. He's a golf course owner, partner and creator of Asia's largest indoor golf teaching facilities, managing director of a made-for-TV golf tournament, distributor of golf product and head instructor of the John Jacobs' Golf Schools. As a youngster, he practiced, played and competed near the very cork forest that's now become the source of raw material that fuels his business venture. The Cork Tree's golf bag was awarded the first place award at the Golf Europe 2013 show in the golf bag category and lead to the launch of the cork putter grips.
