PAYNTR GOLF has announced the appointment of golf industry sales veteran, Steve Gray, as the company’s National Director of Sales.

“Steve is an important addition to PAYNTR GOLF as we work to further elevate our brand,” said Forsey. “His impressive background will allow him to make great contributions to our team while we plan for more demand and launch new products.”
The immediate success of the brand’s debut in early 2021 has justified the need to appoint a seasoned veteran to oversee the company’s sales efforts and advance its partnerships with ambassador David Leadbetter and the Leadbetter Academies.
