Golf Club Manufacturer Honors American Patriots

SMT GOLFSMT Golf has made its name as manfacturer of the longest clubs on any tour. Now they’re transitioning their distance on the course to supporting an even larger cause.

For a limited time, SMT Golf is offering its Durometer Series wedges with a portion of the proceeds going to the Folds of Honor Foundation that provides scholarships to children and spouses of military personnel killed or disabled in the service of the country. The SMT Golf Patriotic Wedge, which will be available until May 3, features an American flag engraved on it and comes with a red, white and blue Golf Pride Patriot grip.

“We’re trying to give back as much as we can,” SMT Golf owner Mike Tait said. “We send golf balls, candy and magazines over (to military personnel) and we’re involved with Toys for Tots. We’re always trying to give back.”

The Durometer Series wedges, which have been used by Nationwide Tour players, come in six different lofts. The SMT Golf Patriotic Wedge sells for $99. A line or two lines of custom engraving are available as well, at $12 and $19 respectively.

SMT also has a golf outings company that is planning similar promotions to raise money to fight breast cancer and prostate cancer.
