DISC GOLF HITS THE PGA TOUR SUPER STORE
By: Rand Eberhard PDGA #7584
Disc golf – a household game. We’ve taken another step in the right direction by partnering with The PGA Tour Super Store. In what was supposed to be a sponsorship meeting for the 6th Annual Atlanta Open quickly turned into a new and exciting opportunity for the sport. Five of their ten stores are now carrying a full line of disc golf products including Kennesaw, Roswell and Lawrenceville, GA and two locations in Dallas, TX.
On April 17th, the night before the Atlanta Open, Ken Climo and David Feldberg were onsite at the PGA Tour Super Store in Roswell, GA. The two champs kicked off the A-tier with a clinic that included demonstrations on grip, balance, putting, and Q&A. More than one hundred supporters of all ages attended the 60-minute event and each received a $10 gift card to be used on anything in the store. A photo gallery of Ken and David's visit can be found here.
Joe Shepherd, PGA Tour Super Store Merchant for Golf Accessories Roswell, GA, is excited about disc golf and the cross-over that will come from traditional golfers. He and some of his store employees have already gone out to play friendly rounds at East Roswell Park in Roswell, GA. Joe looks forward to adding disc golf to his list of recreational activities which already include golf and tennis.
Disc golf offers the same concept as golf minus the greens fees and expensive equipment. A family of four could easily buy 8-12 discs for around $100 and play the game for the entire summer. Visit your nearest PGA Tour Super Store for the latest in disc golf equipment and apparel. The PGA Tour Super Store has ten locations around the country: Georgia (3), AZ (2), SC (2), Texas (2), FL (1). In addition to disc golf, the PGA Tour Superstore offers a wide selection of golf and tennis equipment and apparel.
