Golf tee is becoming a more important part of the golf club’s look and feel, and that’s because of its importance as a golf accessory, a survey finds.
Golf clubs that feature a variety of materials have become more popular, including materials that don’t require a lot of energy, said Scott Renshaw, the vice president of product management at the Golf-Tool, Inc. company.
In addition, golf club owners are beginning to buy accessories to add to their clubs, such as a trampoline, Renshawson said.
Golf tee manufacturers are focusing on improving their products and are adding new materials to increase their appeal to golfers, Rinshaw said.
The survey of 1,000 golf club enthusiasts found that golf club fans tend to be young, men and white, and many golfers wear golf clubs in addition to casual wear, Ritson said in a statement.
The popularity of golf clubs has increased, as well, he said.
In the past, golf clubs were mostly made of steel and leather.
The latest models are made of carbon fiber and the material is durable, Rentsonsonsaid.
They are designed for different golf styles, such a shorter drive, a longer swing, a wide-angle approach and a more traditional approach, he added.
The Golf-tool survey was conducted Oct. 19-21.
