Tornado Tee Named The Official Golf Tee Of World Long Drive

April 30th, 2024-  World Long Drive announces partnership with Tornado Tee as the Official Tee of the World Long Drive for the 2024 Season. 

Beginning at the next WLD tour event on May 17th in Memphis, TN, Tornado Tees will be available to all WLD athletes in competition. The collaboration between WLD and Tornado Tee marks an exciting union of two entities committed to pushing the boundaries of performance in the sport.

"We're excited for this new partnership with the WLD, supporting the brand and the players with the highest performance tee in golf," says Sharon Hartline, CEO and Co-Founder, Tornado Tee.  "Everyone wants to hit the ball farther. WLD is a natural fit to demonstrate the benefits and durability of the Tornado Tee."

Tornado Tee is designed to maximize distance and consistency.The innovative and patented flexible crown absorbs ball shock without adding spin, allowing the club to move freely through the tee. With over 1,000 swings of durability, it's an environmentally conscious choice compared to standard wood tees.  

“This collaboration between Tornado Tee and World Long Drive captures the shared commitment both organizations have to driving innovation, passion, and excellence in our sport.  We are excited to introduce our professionals and fans to this game-improving technology.” said W. David Livingston, World Long Drive Chief Commercial Officer

This partnership is one of many ways World Long Drive looks to support their athletes in offering performance tools to help push the limits of long drive. Together, Tornado Tee and World Long Drive can continue to innovate with feedback from our athletes and community. 

The Tornado Tee is both R&A and USGA conforming and certified for use in sanctioned tournament play.
