Synthetic Turf International Partners with World Long Drive

25 July 2017

Dakota Harp, Business Director of Synthetic Turf International® (STI) is excited to announce the partnership between STI and the World Long Drive Mile High Showdown (Golf Channel) on Tuesday July 25. “We are excited to be a part of the World Long Drive Mile High Showdown in Denver. The stage is set for an epic competition, with the best long drivers in the world on the best synthetic turf,” stated Harp.

STI provided 1800 square feet of turf, including Pro Ball Turf and the EZTee® Poly product. When asked why World Long Drive continued to choose STI, Colin Turner, Director of Events, had this to say: “We choose to use synthetic turf because of the consistent surface that it offers. WLD athletes taking part in these sanctioned events have an expectation that the conditions will match the high level of competition at each event throughout the season. Having a reliable hitting surface is paramount in ensuring we are able to operate these events in the utmost professional way,” adding, “Working with STI has been flawless. From the early stages of planning to execution onsite. The STI team looks at our project as it is their own and ensures it's perfect for our hitters.”

This year’s Volvik World Long Drive Championship, which also airs on the Golf Channel, is located in Thackerville, Oklahoma (August 31 - Sept 6).

Kevin Barker Vice President of Sales and Marketing is thrilled to continue the STI tradition adding, “We are honored to be partnering with the World Long Drive Championship for a second year in a row. The athletes that participate in this event are amazing to watch and every year leave us in awe of the skill they have. Our company has a long history in the golf segment. For over 25 years, we have been producing golf products ranging from putting greens, hitting mats, landscape turf and even our most sought after product called EZTee®.

STI’s newest commercial will air during live coverage of the Mile High Showdown in primetime on Golf Channel from 7-9:30 p.m. ET on Tuesday, July 25, with Golf Central previewing and recapping the event (9:30-10 p.m. ET).
