    2019 Charles Schwab Challenge at Colonial CC

    2019 Charles Schwab Challenge at Colonial CC

    Thanks to the new sponsorship, our annual PGA Tour event at Colonial CC in Fort Worth is set for at least another 10 years.  We have thoroughly enjoyed our yearly trips to this venue.  Last year we had a front row seat to watching Justin Rose take home the trophy and this year we were excited to see hometown favorites, Jordan Spieth and Ryan Palmer playing well on the weekend.

    We made it out for 3 days this year, starting with the ProAm on Wednesday where last year we followed and chatted with an comedy icon, Bill Murray.  No such luck this year and we were disappointed to find out the ProAm was now charging $56 for the practice day versus free every year prior.  Luckily Tas-Tee has some friends in high places and we were able to get in for free on Wednesday.

    We walked with Ryan Palmer's group at first and could see the familiarity building with our Texas native.  From there, we watched Rickie Fowler, then Kevin Kisner, then met an Instagram celebrity at the driving range, Mr. Rory Blakilroy ;)

    "Rory" was telling us how excited he was to meet Kevin Na and how Kevin allowed him to walk with him during the practice round and even hit a tee shot!  Well there must've been some magic in their connection because Kevin Na proceeded to win the event and capped it off by giving his caddie, Kenny, the keys to a 1973 Dodge Challenger that was fully restored and on prominent display by the Clubhouse.

    We were especially humbled by the kids from The First Tee of Fort Worth. These kids were exuberant and knowledgeable about the great game of golf because of several dedicated golf mentors, including the chaperone I met.  It was fantastic to hear that the City of Fort Worth hosts the only public school driving range and we look forward to participating with First Tee on upcoming events.

    What a week of fun! We couldn't be happier for all involved and we so look forward to next year's event.

    Tas-Tee at the PGA Championship At Bellerive

    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.Team Reed

    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.

    Forever humbled,

    Tas-Tee Team
