We had the good fortune of connecting with Jake, Matt, & Braden and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Jake, Matt, & Braden, is your business focused on helping the community? If so, how?
Golf has really impacted our lives in such a positive way. Especially during the pandemic, our mental health took a big hit as we were forced to stay indoors and not socialize with others. Being in Canada for the majority of the time, we didn’t have a lot of positive thoughts.
One of the first things that opened was golf, and it gave us an escape from the pandemic and the negative thoughts. We feel like a lot of people can relate to this and that golf has positively impacted a lot of people like us.
We want to use our brand, and our trip, to help raise awareness for mental health. This issue is something we care about very deeply, and we want to use golf (something we credit the most) to bring joy to more peoples lives. In between tournaments, our goal is to attend as many charity events and benefits for mental health to show support and to raise awareness for this issue.
Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
Growing up, we have been huge fans of the sport of golf. We truly feel that being out on the course on a nice super day is one of the most euphoric things someone can experience. There is also a community behind this sport, and it has seen a major shift in the generations that view it.
We feel we are unique in that, no one has ever attended every PGA TOUR event before. No one has ever lived out of a renovated bus while doing it either. By becoming the first to ever do it, it really sets us apart from others. Our goal also goes deeper than just attending every event. We want to unite this golf community.
Obviously by doing this, there are some major hurdles and logistical problems that we need to sort out before we set out on this journey. They include possibly going international, financial issues and career issues (we’d all have to take a sabbatical). However, we are fully committed to this brand and opportunity as we truly believe it needs to happen. The new generation of golf needs to be celebrated, especially after the boom of the sport since the pandemic, and this is definitely the best way to do it. We also believe that this golf community is capable of coming together to support us, and we can’t wait to support and celebrate with them.
Superfan Sprint aims to inspire confidence and community to any golf enthusiast. By attending every PGA TOUR event, we plan on seeing each and every part of the country to achieve this.
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
Our biggest influence has been the golf community as a whole. We feel that there is a whole different side of golf fandom and togetherness that isn’t celebrated or illustrated in the media. The golf community is super tight, even playing with random people over the years we have made some true connections and enjoyed a day on the course.
We want to unite this golf community by attending every PGA TOUR event in 2023, all while living out of a renovated bus. By building and bringing together this community, there is an opportunity to do something special. We’d like to raise awareness for serious social issues we care deeply about, such as mental health, because golf has really provided us a way to become better human beings. This community has the power and influence to come together, to unite, to bring joy to more peoples lives in the world.
