New Bedford, MASS. – Less than two years ago, former Titleist and TaylorMade golf ball engineer Dean Snell left the comfort and safety of working for a large golf ball manufacturer to launch his own business, Snell Golf.
With headquarters in New Bedford, Massachusetts, Snell has quickly seen his golf ball line-up chalk up record sales numbers and earn high praise from independent golfers and media including rave reviews in Golf Digest’s 2016 Hot List issue.
Today, Snell announced that he is expanding his business into Canada with the launch of SnellGolfCanada.com to provide avid and recreational Canadian golfers with easy access to purchase and enjoy golf balls with excellent performance at affordable prices.
“At the heart of Snell Golf is an e-commerce business model, zero player contracts and low overheads,” said Snell Golf President Dean Snell. “Our intent is to create a high-quality golf ball and sell it an attractive price lower than comparable balls in the market. Golfers everywhere – including Canadians – are starting to take notice, which is why expansion into Canada was a logical and inevitable move for the company.”
As a result of the launch in Canada, Snell Golf has named Ron Stenzl, from Kingston, Ont. as President. Stenzl, 58, is an entrepreneur with a strong sales and finance background with previous ownership and management experience at Leeds Transit. Moreover, Stenzl is a life-long, avid golfer who understands the golf consumer and is excited about the Snell Golf brand.
“Dean Snell is a golf ball guru and our group intends to transfer his expertise and effectively market and distribute his existing golf ball line and any future golf ball innovations to the Canadian golf community,” Stenzl said. “Both golf balls are outstanding. Golfers who now play the balls are quick to talk about how much they like them and we are thrilled with now easily available they will now be to Canadian golfers.”
Snell Golf Canada is going to initially introduce the 2 piece ball (Get Sum) at $27.50 per dozen and the 3 piece ball (My Tour Ball), the flagship product at $42.00 per dozen which is 20-25% percent less than other recreational and tour quality golf balls. We are confident that our customers in Canada will have amazing shot-making moments with Snell Golf balls.”
Snell, who has worked with countless Tour professionals, owns 40 granted U.S. golf ball patents and is the co-inventor of the original ProV1 has parlayed his 25 years of experience with equipment giants Titleist and TaylorMade to bring forth the same philosophies and materials to create his premium golf balls.
A premium multi-layered ball with a thin cast urethane cover, Snell Golf’s “My Tour Ball” ($31.99 per dozen) is the company’s flagship model and its performance is akin to the balls played on today’s professional tours. The ball features a low compression high velocity core allowing lower driver spin rates and faster ball speeds for all swing speeds to promote longer and straighter drives. The cast urethane cover is a Tour-proven technology that produces excellent short game spin and control while delivering soft feel and outstanding durability.
