GOLF MEDIA SURVEY HIGHLIGHTS VALUE OF A SPECIALIST PR AGENCY

                   


-Sports Impact gleans global opinions from influential writers & influencers-

A recent survey among golf writers and social media influencers across the world conducted by leading PR & Marketing company Sports Impact has shown an overwhelming preference for dealing with a specialist PR agency when it comes to sourcing information, obtaining interviews and undertaking product reviews.

More than 250 selected journalists and content creators drawn from North America, Europe and Asia were invited to take part in the survey and asked their opinion on the importance of dealing with a PR agency with an in-depth knowledge of golf.

The vast majority of respondents expressed the opinion that it was ‘very important’ to have access to such an agency, with one commenting: ‘I would consider the term trustworthy or credible when it comes to a PR agency with a specialist focus on golf”, while another said: “If an agency isn’t a specialist, they don’t know the industry and will often struggle to know what is important.”

Commenting on the overwhelming feedback on the subject, Matt Curtis, Head of Media Relations at Sports Impact said: “It was reassuring to discover how highly the golf media value the connection they have with a specialist agency like ours, given the fact that the sport has attracted so much attention from many quarters in recent years.

“Sports Impact has spent the past 22 years building relationships with the media at all levels and it’s a key part of what we offer clients looking to gain more brand and product exposure across an ever-expanding golf media landscape,” he added.

As part of the same survey, the British-based agency asked the global golf content creators to rate its own services when compiling and distributing press releases, providing accompanying imagery and supplying product samples for reviews.  Combining the top two of the five ratings across various aspects of press release compilation, it recorded 92% for quality of writing; 88% for content value, product details and brand descriptions; 84% for storyline delivery; 73% for imagery; and 69% for client quotes.

“We’d like to thank those who responded to our survey for their helpful comments and suggestions, which will serve to improve our services to the media on behalf of some of the best-known premium brands in the golf industry,” added Curtis.

Among brands represented by Sports Impact on a global and regional basis are Arccos, Brand Fusion International, CAPTO Golf, Duca del Cosma, Galvin Green, Golf’s Greatest Holes, KBS, Motocaddy, Sun Mountain and Wilson Golf. The agency also became an Associate Member of the BGIA earlier this year.

La marbellí Laura Gómez a Marrakech para mantener la tarjeta del LET


 

Una docena de golfistas profesionales tiene un reto importante del 10 al 12 de diciembre en Marruecos, concretamente en los campos de Rotana, Samanah y Noria Golf Club, en Marrakech( Marruecos): la previa de la escuela de clasificación del Ladies European Tour. El objetivo es mantener la tarjeta del Circuito Europeo de cara a entrar en 2024 en pleno derecho en los Torneos.


En la lista está la marbellí Laura Gómez, que ha terminado el año 2023 en el puesto nº 151 del ranking, con 41´86 puntos y una participación en 13 torneos. Su mejor resultado del año fue en el Open de Bélgica. Junto a ella estarán las también españolas Natasha Fear, María Parra, Marta Pérez, Laura Gómez, Harang Lee, Teresa Toscano, Reme Cortés, Raquel Romero, Teresa Díez Moliner, María Herráez y Clara Moyano. Las golfistas que superen este primer escollo buscarán la tarjeta del 16 al 20 también en suelo marroquí.


El torneo contará con 229 golfistas profesionales de 41 países, mostrando la diversidad y el talento del golf femenino. Cabe destacar que el evento cuenta con la participación de dos golfistas profesionales marroquíes, poniendo de relieve el importante crecimiento del golf femenino en Marruecos.


El evento se desarrollará en varios de los famosos campos de golf de Marrakech en dos fases clave:


Preclasificatorio:


Del 10 al 12 de diciembre de 2023, en Noria Golf Club Marrakech, Palmeraie Rotana Resort Marrakech y Samanah Golf by Nicklaus.


Clasificatorio final:


Del 16 al 20 de diciembre de 2023, en Royal Golf Marrakech y Al Maaden Golf Marrakech.


Estos campos, conocidos por su combinación única de la belleza natural de Marrakech y desafiantes experiencias de golf, ofrecen a los jugadores diversos terrenos con el impresionante telón de fondo de las montañas del Atlas, complementados con la hospitalidad marroquí.


LALLA AICHA


Este evento rinde homenaje a la fallecida princesa Lalla Aicha, un miembro venerado de la familia real marroquí y pionero del golf femenino marroquí. Sus esfuerzos por promover el golf dieron lugar a importantes torneos como la Copa Lalla Meryem en el LET, elevando la estatura mundial del golf marroquí.

SUPERSTROKE ADDS NEW STYLES & VIBRANT COLOURS TO ZENERGY LINE

          


-Claw 2.0 & SS2R putter grips introduced to popular range offering distinctive colourways-

SuperStroke, the brand seen most prominently on tournament greens, is now offering two new putter grip styles and more vibrant colourways on its popular Zenergy line at a time in the season when golfers look to upgrade or refresh their equipment.

The latest models – Claw 2.0 and SS2R – join the extensive Zenergy collection launched earlier this year to offer golfers a choice from as many as 18 premium putter grips in up to eight standout colour combinations to suit different putting strokes and aesthetic tastes.

“We’re thrilled to be supplying golfers with even more leading SuperStroke designs to choose from as they’re likely to consider re-gripping their putters over the winter months,” said Nigel Freemantle, Managing Director of Brand Fusion International, the main distributor of the brand outside the U.S. “The putter is one of the most used clubs during a round accounting for 30-40% of shots, so it’s important that golfers feel comfortable with their flat stick and we’re confident these new grips and colourways deliver on that front,” he added.

The Claw 2.0 grip features a graduated design with a pistol-style top that transitions to a square shape to deliver greater comfort and stability Weighing 63 grams, its three flat sides increase the surface area for those golfers who prefer to adopt a claw-style grip on the greens. Available in the White/Red and White/Black colours.

The SS2R grip incorporates a strategically engineered design with a 1” square profile for players who prefer opposing hand placement during the putting stroke. Heavier than most SuperStroke putter grips at 109 grams, the SS2R delivers additional back-weighting and is a style that pairs up well with heavier putter heads. It comes in a White/Black colour option.

Some of the most vibrant new colourways include the Orange/Blue/White option that is now available on the the popular Pistol GT 1.0 grip and five other models; a striking White/Red colour combination on ten grips; plus the bold Blue/White and Purple/White options for those looking to make a statement on the greens.

All Zenergy grips incorporate a multi-layer construction featuring a soft, tacky outer layer and a firm rubber inner core for enhanced grip, stability and feedback. Improved accuracy is achieved using Spyne+ Technology that features an embossed ridge along the underside of the grip to make it easier to square the face at impact.

To enhance feel, Multi-Zone Texturing provides strategically placed textures in high sensory areas to optimise feedback and comfort from the soft polyurethane outer layer, while the patented No Taper Technology ensures a minimal and even grip pressure is applied with an advanced parallel design that ensures both hands stay quiet for added consistency.
