Support The Little Guy- Scorecard Yardage Book Edition
Everyone knows the big guy brands in golf, Ping, Callaway, Titleist, etc. But what about the small shops, the little guys (and gals)? Here is my ongoing series devoted to companies and people you might not have heard of doing great work.
Deep in the recesses of Oregon lives a golf fanatic. Such is his mania and need to fund his golf habit, he makes great yardage book holders for golfers and sells em on ebay. His name is Z.
For those of you not familiar, yardage book/scorecard holders are often used by pros (kept in the back pocket) as golf is as much of a science as it is an art. You need to know yardages, slopes of greens, which hole the beverage cart is one, all things that need a place called home and holders will get you there.
I was looking for a holder and was surprised about how expensive they are. Often these are made by high end leathermakers with insane leathers like ostrich. Z bucks the trend by making affordable holders in a variety of colors and sells em on ebay.
I absolutely love mine and am a huge fan. You can just feel the quality when you get one, Z does great work and he can even "age" it for you if you want, which I asked for (I like that worn look, don't need this to be brand spanking new but you have that option!).
Z gets my inaugural Support The Little Guy stamp of approval (trademark pending).
