Stuburt sponsors world long-drive champ

New Helium Pro shoe to give Sean ‘The Beast’ Fister a lift in long driving world

Three-times World Long Drive Champion, Sean Fister, will tee it up around the world in brand new Helium Pro golf shoes after agreeing a sponsorship package with Stuburt.

Fister, of Little Rock, Arkansas, can smash a golf ball more than 500 yards – a fairway-demolishing feat that has earned him the nickname ‘The Beast’ in the ultra-competitive world of long driving.

Duncan Patmore, of Stuburt, the world’s fastest-growing golf shoe and waterproofs company, said: “The Helium Pro is packed with technology designed to give golfers the ultimate in stability and the ability to transfer power into their swing.

“Sponsoring Sean will showcase the Helium Pro to the world at long driving events and exhibitions and we delighted to welcome him to Team Stuburt, alongside David Howell and Darren Clarke.”

Fister has won the Long Drive World Championships three times. His longest drive in competition is 450 yards and his personal best is a wind-assisted 515 yards.

The 6ft 5in, 16-stone big-hitter is golf’s Bionic Man – having suffered a broken back (twice), a fractured skull, broken feet (12 times) and a two broken legs in his career as an Olympic standard athlete.

Said Fister: “I was impressed by the Stuburt Helium Pro shoe at the PGA Merchandise Show in Orlando. It’s light, modern, and provides fantastic stability – I’m certain it will help my long driving career.”

The Stuburt Helium Pro was designed with input from Ryder Cup star David Howell and has become one of the UK’s best-selling golf shoes.

It features revolutionary TecTuff abrasion-resistance leather, an EVA heel insert for comfort, unique Stuburt Multi-Stud Traction system (MST), M2H support cradle and offset TPU toe guard.

The sponsorship deal with Sean also includes the high-quality Stuburt Professional Full Zip waterproofs.
