Element 21 Sponsors Philadelphia PGA Section, Club Pro Championships

IRVINE, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- August 31, 2005 -- Element 21 Golf Company (E21) (OTC BB: EGLF) announced today that it has sponsored the recent Philadelphia PGA Section "Club Pro Championship." This opportunity allowed the company to create additional awareness for the Element 21 brand name among club professionals and avid amateurs, with over 200 "E21 Golf" branded T-shirts handed out to participants.

The championship was held at Burlington Country Club, with a pro-am on Sunday followed by the club pro championships on Monday through Wednesday. Bucknell GC Head Professional Brian Kelly came from two shots back at the beginning of the final round to win the tournament by one shot over Valley Green GC pro Rob Shuey.

"Events such as this provide an ideal showcase to demonstrate E21's innovative line of golf clubs that incorporate advanced new clubhead designs with Element 21's breakthrough scandium metal alloy shafts," stated Jim Morin, Vice President of Element 21 Golf.

The unprecedented performance and 'true contact signature' feel experienced by players of the E21 products always generates a flurry of questions and excitement about E21's scandium metal alloy technology and the upcoming release of new product designs.

E21's Scandium metal alloy has a 55% reduced density, and 25% improved strength to weight advantage over titanium alloys, and 75% reduced density compared to stainless steel. The reduced density and high strength of the scandium alloy allows for the production of the first golf shafts to combine the best of both worlds -- the performance and consistency of steel with the weight advantages of graphite. In robotic tests utilizing identical club heads, the performance of a variety of leading shafts, both steel and graphite, were tested in comparison to E21's scandium metal alloy shaft. The E21 shafts demonstrated 10% increases in distance and a 15% increase in accuracy compared to its competitors.

Dr. Nataliya Hearn, president and CEO of Element 21 Golf, stated: "It is important for us to continue building brand awareness and create interest in the E21 lineup of groundbreaking clubs, that feature the advanced scandium metal alloy material for which the company is known. Club pros are an important target market, and we wish to establish credibility and create brand advocates from among the PGA club pro ranks. We find that once a club pro has tried the E21 clubs, they are amazed at the performance, consistency and unparalleled 'feel' of these new clubs."
