The story of Swannies all began in Northern Minnesota with a cold morning tee time, as most morning tee times are out there. Matt Stang
plays in rain or shine in his favorite footwear, sandals, so Sam Swanson
(Co-Founder) had said to him that one early morning “You’d probably
outdrive me one of these days if you had any traction”.
Like with many sports, golf clubs and accessories have become an extension of our own personal styles. Things aren't just black and white anymore. There is something for everyone and if you can't find it, you haven't looked hard enough. It's important to rock something that matches your attitude on the golf course. From shirts to bags. Shoes to hats. Belts to socks and even gloves. Not a lot of people know this but I come from the surf industry. I was a designer at a place called Gotcha Sportswear. If you don't remember Gotcha then you are truly a grom! Anyways, I hooked up with the crew at Asher Golf and they come from a similar background as myself with emphasis on lifestyle, style and function. They have a wide variety of gloves that fit my personal style that I had to check out. And better yet, I didn't have to sacrifice quality for fashion!
While growing up in the 1980s playing the game, and working as a PGA professional in the 1990’s teaching the game, I tinkered with every new golf club trying to find that magic solution to improving my game.
Fitness and golf are two of my passions in life. At 31 years of age, I am at the gym 6 times a week and sometimes twice a day. I played competitive golf up till college and currently work at a pro shop / golf course in Southern California. To say I've tried everything out there to gain an edge would be an understatement. One of the great "perks" of being in the golf industry is having friends like the crew at GolfBalled asking for my opinion on new products that are right up my alley. Corey handed me the boxes of SwingOIL and said "You have to try this! It's the first drink supplement of its kind. It's specially formulated by golfers for golfers to promote flexibility and focus. Oh, and Jason Day drinks it!" What could I say except, hand it over and let me get at it!
