TGI Golf, Europe’s leading buying group for golf professionals, has recognised FootJoy as its number one accredited supplier for 2007 in an official awards presentation.
TGI Golf managing director Eddie Reid presented Mike Lucas, managing director of FootJoy, with a bottle of champagne and a special certificate of commendation in recognition of the shoe brand finishing first in the TGI Golf Supplier Survey, as voted for by TGI Golf’s membership of more than 400 on-course retailers.
Eddie Reid said, “The TGI Golf Supplier Survey is viewed as a prestigious and valuable source of feedback for accredited suppliers, and finishing top is a superb achievement that demonstrates excellence across ten key performance characteristics. On behalf of everyone at TGI Golf, I’d like to congratulate FootJoy on a great year and wish them every success in 2008.”
The TGI Golf Supplier Survey covers ten key performance criteria for accredited suppliers, including service, accounting, delivery time, returns service and stocking, and FootJoy emerged as clear leader across several categories.
Mike Lucas, managing director of FootJoy, said, “We have enjoyed a long association with TGI Golf and have always put a lot of store by its supplier surveys. FootJoy has always done its best to perform well in the surveys, and, in this industry service is key. We aim to provide a good service and it’s great to see the reward come back in the form of this award.”
