We arrived bright and early on Monday and were pleased with the size and buzz of the crowd. There's no mistaking the atmosphere of a PGA major, it's palpable from the moment you step on the course grounds.The buzz was especially loud around #10 where many of the golfers were starting their practice rounds. Our Team made our way to the practice green and spotted some familiar faces.
While Team Reed was looking all business Patrick did sign about 500 autographs on both the practice rounds I walked with him. Even reconnected Pat with a big fan, who really enjoyed the meet up and signature selfie w the Masters Champion and Captain America.
Most eyes were on Tiger Woods who was in great form throughout the week. The crowds following Tiger's group during the practice rounds were as big as I've ever seen. Our team had to divide and conquer to get a good glimpse of Tiger, JB Holmes, Justin Thomas and eventual winner Brooks Koepka but it was Sooooo worth it.
Here's a video of Tiger and Brooks teeing off 18 w an enormous gallery, some of which had no idea who Brooks Koepka is.. i know
The sound that Koepka's golf ball makes is unlike any other I've heard. People were flabbergasted by the penetrating ball flight and carry, especially after they applauded Tiger's two attempts.
Our team was on site through Friday's round and while some of our picks didn't make the cut at the year's final major, we were extremely happy to see Brooks Koepka pick up the Wannamaker at the end of play. Congratulations to the Koepka team and good luck in the FedEx Cup Playoffs. Tas-Tee will be there!
We're always so excited to announce that we have a new pricing scale. It means that we can discount every future Tas-Tee experience for every customer. Those of you that have supported Tas-Tee since it's inception have experienced a few pricing changes to our Tas-Tee product line over the years.
We started selling our flagship Cherry Tas-Tee at $1.50 per tee! (I know) Over time we were able to convince more and more golfers that the Tas-Tee experience made golf even more enjoyable. With each batch of inventory leaving our shelves, we've put every dime back into making a better Tas-Tee, and more of them.
Each new pricing model has brought the price of a single Tas-Tee down by more than 30% and it's ALL because of you! Thank you to everyone that has supported us and we look forward to our continued growth together.
We were riding an incredible high coming back home to Texas for the Dell Match Play at Austin Country Club.
On Wednesday The Tas-Tee Team made our way to the course bright and early in order to catch Jordan Spieth and Patrick Reed practicing. Off the first tee, Jordan could have used a little more accuracy, but he did win over the crowd with his typical commentary. ck it out on YouTube:
UT's Spieth and Captain America had their showdown on Friday and it proved to be very exciting. The Austinites filled the galleries and were in full voice until Patrick drained a bomb off the back of the cup to seal the victory at 2&1.
On the weekend there were several earth-shaking roars but we were excited to see our friend Kevin Kisner advance to the Final Four..
The 2018 Tas-Tee Roadtrip continues next week at the Houston Open in Humble, Texas.. then it's Masters Week!
