Behind the Golf Brand Podcast
Gabe Coyne discusses the significant growth of Stix Golf by bringing high quality modern clubs at an affordable price.
In this week’s episode, we are hanging out with Gabe Coyne, the CEO of Stix Golf. Gabe co-founded Stix based on his personal frustration that golf is fundamentally a simple game that has become far too complex. Gabe and the team built Stix focused on design and quality, never being convinced by the hype that this year’s technology will be a game changer. Before founding Stix, Gabe co-founded a mobile tech startup and was a Partner at Venture studio, which validates innovative products and companies; there he learned how to build brands, products and product-market fit. Coyne is bullish on the future of golf trending casual, more diverse and less elitist with Stix becoming a go-to brand for the next generation of golfers.
