The Golf Foundation has announced the signing of a three-year sponsorship deal with Glideball. Glideball was first demonstrated at the PGA Golf Show in Orlando, where it was given the accolade of ‘the best new product seen at the show in the last 20 years‘, and then at the British Masters in 2003 and 2004 as part of the ‘Golf Roots‘ initiative run by the Golf Foundation, European Tour and The Daily Telegraph.
James Leman of Glideball said, “We are delighted to have this opportunity to work with the Golf Foundation and by making Glideball available to their nationwide Dunlop Starter Centre network believe we can really start to help attract youngsters into the game with this unique product.”
Stuart Armstrong, development manager of the Golf Foundation said, “Glideball compliments our Tri golf initiative perfectly, in that it enables the youngsters to progress on to the next stage of hitting a real golf ball on a secure training aid. Its portability will enable our development officers to take it out into the schools and local communities.”
