Swag Golf Genesis Launch for Swag Skulls Set for August 16TH Offering Tangible Utility Across Both Web 3.0 and Physical Applications for Fans

August 15, 2022 – Swag Golf, the fan-favorite lifestyle brand known for its unparalleled golf accessories, equipment and apparel, has announced the genesis launch of the company’s Swag Skulls NFT project scheduled to go live the week of August 15th. Built completely in-house on proprietary technology, the Swag Skulls NFT project differentiates itself in an overcrowded marketplace by offering Swag customers a solution to the existing customer pain points of accessibility and exclusivity by providing real-world utility for NFT holders. Set to go live the week of August 15th, fans can follow along on the company’s official Discord channel for project details and updates for the Genesis launch.

Since launching in 2018, Swag has flipped the golf industry on its head by creating some of the most sought-after premium headcovers, apparel and equipment that feature the company’s signature bold style. With a loyal following that highly anticipates each small-batch product drop, Swag items sell out in mere minutes, leading to a large demand for the limited supply, and sometimes, frustration on missing out on a sought-after design.

The Swag Skulls NFT project is designed to relieve this customer pain point. Fans can purchase Swag Skulls NFTs to create necessary combinations that unlock early access to exclusive product drops (think advanced purchasing), and attendance at unique Swag experiences.

The Swag Skulls NFT project is designed to ensure a more inclusive and accessible experience for new and existing fans. The company has designed their entry into Web 3.0 to lower the barriers of purchase and engage the Swag customer base to further develop a sense of community. To encourage participation and trading of various NFTs, Swag Skulls can be bought at a minting price of .1ETH and the company has slashed trade commissions to a scant 2.5%, which is 100% – 200% lower than the average commission.

“Our fans are some of the smartest and enthusiastic people on the planet. We make a point to regularly check in with our community and it was increasingly clear that, as more people became familiar with our products, the more challenging it was to snag desired swag directly from the company. Enter the NFT project, which we designed to provide meaningful utility in both the physical world and Web 3.0 to alleviate some of these challenges to get our products in the hands of people that want them,” said Nick Venson, owner, Swag Golf.

Built entirely in-house on proprietary technology, Swag’s multi-factor authentication is designed to be bulletproof to ensure legitimacy of ownership and security of assets. Swag invested heavily to bring the best minds in the crypto and NFT space together with its inhouse team to develop its own technology to house the project. In an open challenge to defeat the code, a 1-of-1 headcover will be offered up on the website as a bounty for someone that can crack their token security.

“We really understood the power this project has to completely change the way we connect with our fans. As development went underway, we determined that existing technologies on the market were unable to securely provide the experience we wanted to cultivate for our customers, so we built our own. We’re confident that our MFA is more bulletproof than any other service available and invite our fans to take aim at cracking our token security, so we can strengthen the offering even more,” said Venson.

The Swag Skulls Genesis launch is scheduled for the week of August 15 , 2022.

Nippon Shaft Wins Five Premier Global Tournaments

CARLSBAD, CA – Players using Nippon Shaft products on Sunday (Aug. 14) won on the PGA Tour, the DP World (European) Tour, the PGA Tour Champions, the Ladies European Tour and at the U.S. Women’s Amateur.

The 25-year-old PGA Tour player secured his first Tour victory on the third hold of a sudden death playoff at the FedEx St. Jude Championship at TPC Southwind in Germantown, Tennessee outside Memphis. He played the N.S.PRO MODUS³ Hybrid X flex shaft in his #3 utility enroute to his victory, shooting 15-under par in regulation.

A 26-year-old Scotsman won the ISPS Handa World Invitational using the N.S.PRO MODUS³ Tour 120 X flex steel shafts in his irons and wedges to shoot a 12-under par total and score his second DP World Tour victory in his rookie year.

At the same event as above, a 22-year-old from Sweden won the women’s division of the ISPS Handa World Invitational using Nippon Shaft’s AWT 2.0 steel shafts in her irons and wedges. The Ladies European Tour member shot 20-under par for the tournament, including a course-record final round of 63, which included 10 birdies.

The famed pony-tailed Spaniard won the PGA Tour Champions’ Boeing Classic using the N.S.PRO MODUS³ Tour 105 S flex steel shafts in his irons and wedges to shoot 15-under par in the 54-hole event. The 58-year-old recorded rounds of 70-64-67 at The Club of Snoqualmie Ridge in Snoqualmie, Washington outside Seattle.

Across the state, a 17-year-old became the second Japanese woman to win the U.S. Women’s Amateur, obliterating her final match play opponent 11 and 9 at Chambers Bay Golf Course in University Place, Washington outside Tacoma. The Champion used Nippon Shaft’s N.S.PRO MODUS³ Tour 105 S flex steel shafts in her irons and wedges to win her first USGA title. With the victory, she earned an exemption to play as an amateur in next year’s U.S. Women’s Open at Pebble Beach Golf Links.

“Nippon Shaft congratulates all five winners of these very prestigious worldwide tournaments,” said Hiro Fukuda, sales and marketing for Nippon Shaft. “Nippon Shaft is proud and gratified that more and more players around the world are trusting our meticulously designed and manufactured shafts to compete and win at golf’s highest levels.”

More than 200 players on the PGA Tour, LPGA Tour, European Tour and Korn Ferry Tour use Nippon Shaft’s MODUS³ series steel shafts to help gain their desired distance, accuracy, and trajectory.

Nippon Shaft products are available globally either as stock or custom shafts in many of the world’s top iron brands.
