April 2020, 5:30 am: *Alarm Sounds*
A young 22-year old from Guelph, Ontario scratches his eyes and jumps out of bed. He opens his window and is greeted by the cold and damp air of a spring morning. After a quick shower, he and his brother load into the car and depart for work as grounds crew at a local course. Working golf course maintenance is no walk in the park by any means. Have you ever woke up at 5:30 to cut 27 greens in 3-degree weather with nippy winds blowing 30km/hour? That is no easy feat. It requires dedication, determination, and an overall good attitude. Despite battling the intense elements of a Southern Ontario spring, these two boys enjoyed it immensely. Why? I’m not too sure. But I’m sure the free rounds of golf after work had something to do with it.
These two took full advantage of free golf and practiced most days. Sometimes just nine holes, sometimes 27, but they played every day, rain or shine. They really did love the game. Now you would think that after four months of playing every day, these two young men would have gotten fairly good at golf. Unfortunately, that is just not the case. In fact, it is the older brother’s inability to post consistent rounds in the 80’s that led to this idea. At this point in his life, he is just so addicted to the game and getting better he wanted to surround himself in all things golf, so why not start a golf company. Is this the most logical thing to do? Probably not. But one thing that will forever be undisputed is his love for the game and dedication to bringing you the best quality golf accessories with a unique fashionable twist.
You have probably heard the saying, ‘look good, play good.’ Although this is may not be true in my case, it sure as heck can be true for you. So what are you waiting for? Pick up some of our gear and join the Syron Golf family today. You have never been known to lay up on a par five so why start now? Grip it and rip it, baby.
From one golf addict to another, keep getting better every day. Every chunk, slice, hook and shank means you’re one shot closer to being a scratch golfer. (Now how’s that for a pep talk).
