Tour Edge Joins Traveling Golfer as Official Equipment Sponsor

(PHILADELPHIA, Pa.) - Tour Edge Golf, an American-owned golf company based in Batavia, Illinois, has signed an agreement to become the Official Equipment Sponsor of the award-winning Traveling Golfer television show.

The announcement was made public in a joint statement by David Glod, president and founder of Tour Edge Golf, and Traveling Golfer host Tony Leodora. The one-year agreement outlined a number of areas of involvement for Tour Edge - including creation of "Tech Talk" segments on the show, with Glod explaining technology issues in the research and development of golf clubs. Tour Edge also will have a strategic placement on the show's website, www.travelinggolfervideo.com. In addition, Leodora will play Tour Edge golf clubs throughout the monthly episodes of the show that travels the globe in an effort to bring the most interesting golf destinations to its viewers.
"We saw this as a good opportunity to gain exposure to the avid golfers who are part of a rapidly growing audience," said Glod. "There is a good symmetry between our products and the show."
The main area of similarity comes in the fact that both Tour Edge and Traveling Golfer have been on a fast growth track in recent years.
Headquartered in the suburbs of Chicago, Tour Edge was founded in 1986 by David Glod, a former golf professional. As a young entrepreneur, Glod truly believed there was an opportunity in the golf industry to provide a high-quality product at an affordable price. He designed his first club in 1987 and never looked back.
Today, Tour Edge maintains the same focus, providing golfers with premium quality golf equipment that is affordable. The company has become a top-10 manufacturer in every club category.
"I have known Dave Glod almost from his beginning days with Tour Edge," explained Leodora. "His company is a prime example of the American principles of ingenuity and hard work. There couldn't have been a better match for our Traveling Golfer show and I am extremely proud to be associated with Tour Edge. We will be able to show off quality equipment, backed by cutting edge technology."
The announcement of Tour Edge as Official Equipment Sponsor coincides with the start of the third season of Traveling Golfer on the air. Responding to golfers' never-ending demands to learn more about interesting golf courses and golf resorts across the country and around the world, Traveling Golfer was created by the well-traveled Leodora so he could take viewers on video golf trips to interesting golf locations. The show, produced and directed by Jamie McWilliams, won a first place award for golf television in the prestigious International Network of Golf Media Awards at the PGA Merchandise Show in January.
The Traveling Golfer appears as a series of monthly shows hosted by Leodora, who has 15 years of experience in televised golf shows. The featured destination stays on a network of websites for one month, before being replaced by a new show. The old shows are archived for continued viewing on the home website, www.travelinggolfervideo.com and through the show's YouTube network. A list of all hosting websites appears on the home website. Exposure across the country and to 15 foreign countries comes via The Golf Director Network, at www.thegolfdirector.com.
The Traveling Golfer show airs multiple times each month on Comcast SportsNet, in the Philadelphia and Washington D.C. markets, as part of the Inside Golf television show. It is also carried on Ch. 4 in the Myrtle Beach market by the Press Box television show.
