UniversityGolf Gloves: A Perfect Fit

From Z. Kelly Queijo:

If you love golf and you love the Virginia Tech Hokies, then of course, you're going to love the UniversityGolf Glove. At least, that's what entrepreneur Tyson Daniel hopes for his idea of putting a college logo on a golf glove.

Already experienced with the college-branded marketplace through his line of MP3-enabled athletic apparel, LimbGear, Tyson says, "We were looking for a product that we could sell pretty much year round. We saw that this had not been done before, so we did it."

Quinton Nottingham, associate professor of Business Information Technology at Virginia Tech, tries to make it to the golf course 2-3 times a week to practice or play. He likes the fit and feel of the UniversityGolf Glove and says a golf glove is a necessity.

As an alum of VT, I know a thing or two about Hokie love, but golf – that mystifies me. Fortunately, Neil Sagebiel, author of the Armchair Golf Blog, explains it this way:

“In my experience, there's no other game or sport that tests a person quite like golf. The great Bobby Jones said, 'Competitive golf is played mainly on a five-and-a-half-inch course – the space between your ears.' You never truly master it. It teaches you a lot about yourself and your ability to handle adversity. And there are also those euphoric moments and days when the game loves you back.”

So, golf is about love? It would seem then, that when it comes to love and passion, Hokies and golf, UniversityGolf Gloves are a perfect fit.
