The Dynamic Collaboration Will Facilitate Payntr Golf’s Growth Across the European Market
Portland, Ore. – PAYNTR GOLF today announced their partnership with Specialist Sports, a leading performance sports distribution and brand marketing agency based in the United Kingdom, as PAYNTR GOLF continues its rapid expansion across Europe.
The partnership will see Specialist Sports provide PAYNTR GOLF with expert sales strategy and distribution services opening the brand to new key golf markets. PAYNTR GOLF burst onto the golf footwear scene in March 2021 by identifying the needs of the golfer through research and analysis to develop their products to act as equipment.
“What PAYNTR GOLF has accomplished in such a short timeframe is remarkable and sparked our interest to engage to help accelerate their upward trajectory in the highly competitive golf footwear market,” said John Tayler, Sales & Marketing Director at Specialist Sports. “We recognized the importance of their cutting-edge philosophy and how imbedding biomechanics into the products will benefit both amateur and professional golfers.”
The unprecedented sales success within two years of launching the first model of PAYNTR GOLF shoes, the PAYNTR X 001 F, raised the bar for customers seeking a performance advantage in their golf footwear. With a full line of products available for purchase including shoes, gloves, headwear, socks and golf bags, the demand for PAYNTR GOLF rose significantly through the first half of 2022. Following the introduction of the PANYTR X 002 LE and PAYNTR X 003 F, the company received praise from top media outlets such as MyGolfSpy, Golf Digest, Forbes, Golfweek and Business Insider. New models are scheduled to launch in Fall of 2022 and Spring of 2023.
“This strategic alliance with Specialist Sports will undoubtedly advance our efforts in becoming a major player in golf globally,” said Mike Forsey, President and Co-founder of PAYNTR GOLF. “Their track record of launching celebrated brands in new markets certainly gives PAYNTR GOLF an innovative and enthusiastic approach to show customers our products will make a difference in their game.”
