Tornado Tee Named the Official Golf Tee of the World Long Drive

SANDY, Utah, May 2, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — Tornado Tee partners with World Long Drive (WLD) to name Tornado Tee the “Official Golf Tee of The World Long Drive.”

Many WLD competitors already use the Tornado Tee for competition including the 2023 World Long Drive Champions for all three divisions: Open, Women’s, and Senior’s. Tornado Tees will be available to all competitors to use during competition at their choice.

“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. The WLD is a natural fit to demonstrate the benefits and durability of the Tornado Tee.”

Made in the USA, the Tornado Tee is designed to maximize distance and consistency. The innovative and patented flexible crown absorbs the shock of a ball being struck without adding spin and allows the club to move freely through the tee.

With over 1,000 swings of durability from even the fastest players in the world, the Tornado Tee is an environmentally conscious choice compared to traditional 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.

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