SMT Golf Does It Again!

New Zealand - SMT Golf captures two more International Long Drive Championship titles, and achieves the unthinkable with three different models in one event.

In spite of a deliberate and powerful headwind, Philis Metti, National Champion, 2006 RE/MAX World Long Drive Champion andNew Zealand World Record holder, cruised to victory with her new SMT Encore club in hand, and outdistanced the nearest competitor by 50 yards with her blast of 283 yards!

SMT Golf then proceeded to grab another Championship title and trophy with Aaron Garnett and his SMT Spectrum's smash of 292 yards. Aaron liked the fact that the SMT Spectrum head has earned legendary status as the longest driver on any PGA Tour since 2003, and found a bit of that same magic for himself. SMT Golf congratulates Aaron on his fantastic accomplishment!

Davyn Nola, New Zealand's long drive legend and continual favorite, battled with his trusted SMT 455 Deep Bore, through the entire field to be one of the last two standing. While being edged out for the national title, Davyn was absolutely the show stopper with the longest drive of the entire event at 332.5 yards into that relentless headwind.

Mike Tait, owner and club designer of SMT Golf had this to say. "There is something really quite remarkable that just happened in New Zealand. SMT Golf has once again proven itself by prevailing on a worldwide stage, over every manufacturer in the world. These companies spend millions of dollars to boast about how far their products hit the ball, but they are rarely, if ever, found in the winner's circles. SMT's success in New Zealand, coming off the South African record breaking performance earlier this month is really something special". Tait continued, "SMT has done the unthinkable in this event by capturing two national titles and producing the longest drive of the week with three different models of our award winning heads, the Encore, Spectrum and 455 Deep Bore!"

Mike Tait concluded, "I would also like to thank our New Zealand Master Distributor, Warren Smith, for his tireless efforts in supporting the SMT brand throughout New Zealand. Warren's expert clubmaking and clubfitting knowledge has been shared with thousands of everyday golfers, as well as these competitors and fine champions. Warren Smith of Smiths Golf 2000, has been working with these world class athletes for years. Through his fitting expertise, dedication to the craft, and remarkable teaching abilities, he has found ways to give each SMT competitor a distinct advantage over the rest of the field. Clearly the results of the event show that he is extremely knowledgeable and New Zealanders are lucky to have him. It is really spectacular when you can see clubmaking skills and teaching theory come together to vault players to the top. Congratulations Warren, keep up the great work"!

SMT Golf, The Winningest Component Company In The History Of Golf, and the first and only company to win each division of the RE/Max World Long Drive Championship, and the "Longest driver on any PGA Tour", built its reputation on the highest quality products with unsurpassed performance and durability.
