Jonathan Fowler: Build Excitement With Demo Days
As a Wilson staff member for the past 21 years, I have developed a great working relationship with the company. It was through this relationship that we were able to secure the Wilson tour van for one of our many demo day events. Our members were custom fit and their clubs were built for them on-site that day. Wilson also ran a promotion of a free golf bag and a custom engraved wedge for all sets purchased on the day of the event.
