Bettinardi Golf have added two new members to their international distribution team. Paul McGovern of Golf Devices Ltd. and Top 100 UK teacher, Duncan Woolger, will provide an extremely strong Bettinardi presence throughout the UK and Ireland.
Sports Impact Marketing Agency will also be involved with growing the Bettinardi brand and product profile throughout the region as well.
“We have been avid Bettinardi supporters for a number of years,” McGovern said. “Mr. Bettinardi and his team have long been providing precision milled golf and lifestyle products to consumers all over the world. We wanted to be able to provide the people of the UK and Ireland with that same access to Bettinardi’s outstanding products. This new partnership allows us to accomplish that goal.”
Woolger whole heartedly agrees with McGovern’s view of Bettinardi Golf in the UK. “As a top 100 teacher, I work with players of all ability levels. What many golfers fail to realize is that putting makes up about 40-50% of the total strokes in a round of golf. Getting properly fit for a putter is important, but getting properly fit into a precision putter is even more important. The confidence that is gained when you putt with a Bettinardi is unmatched; it will definitely help people become better putters.”
Expanding Bettinardi into a global brand is something that the company has been focused on for years. “When I started the company in 1998, I had aspirations of growing the company on an international scale,” says Robert Bettinardi, President/CEO of Bettinardi Golf. “Even though we have products in over 25 countries across the globe, we are constantly evolving in order to become a major player in the international marketplace. Adding the UK and Ireland, which is one of the top global golf markets, allows Bettinardi Golf to expand even further in 2015.”
