FLW THRU Golf – A Lifestyle Collection
As a contributor for Golf Life, I get the awesome opportunity to review all kinds of golf products. Ranging from equipment to some of what some people might see as the simpler items. When I get the opportunity to review golfing outerwear, I always really look forward to that opportunity. The items I will be talking about today are from a company located in Green Bay, Wisconsin led by Founder and President Kevin Leurquin.
That company is called FLW THRU Golf. Kevin found a passion for the game of golf at a young age. Due to being born with a bleeding disorder called Hemophilia, Kevin’s condition prevented him from playing the more physical sports. He quickly embraced the game of golf and all the challenges that it presents.
While talking with Kevin I quickly realized that what he was doing was more than just running and growing a golf apparel and accessory company. He was actually helping grow the game of golf. You might ask, well how was he doing that? We all know that our youth are the future of the game and to get them involved at an early age is key to spurring their interest and passion for the game of golf.
Kevin has made it a mission of his company to contribute a portion of the sales made towards building sets of golf clubs for the young golfers. They have actually joined in a partnership with US Kids Golf to help make that possible. They have numerous events scheduled this year to help spread the word and reach out to more young golfers.
I was given several nice items to review for Golf Life, a screen printed t-shirt, golf hat, and several ball markers. FLW THRU Golf also sent a nice key chain and a poster of their company logo, which is made on a high quality paper suitable for framing. Their logo is quite unique, I haven’t seen anything close to it ever before. It’s a silhouette of a golfer but not the typical one you might see. It’s more of an an artist’s perception and how they would present a golfer.
The t-shirt is made out of 100% cotton with the nice silhouette of the golfer on the front chest and an awesome piece of artwork on the back. The saying on the back is “Life is a Swing Follow Through”. The script or font is quite eye catching and I received several compliments on it the first day I wore the shirt to work. Being 100% cotton, it is very comfortable and the sizes run pretty true to form with most t-shirts. They offer it in a variety of color choices.
The golf hat they sent along has their trademark silhouette golfer on the front, the hat is also 100% cotton. The hat has the adjustable slide in the back that many golf hats have and is a “one size fits most”. It fits comfortably on my head and I tend to have some issues with these “one size fits most” hats. The two tone hat was navy with a off white front panel with the embroidered logo in the center. They have many different colors to choose from, both solid colors and the two tone.
FLW THRU Golf also sent a couple of ball markers which I thought were quite different in both the look and feel. They were about the size of a poker chip but they are made out on lightweight metal with a baked on paint finish. The company logo was actually cut out of the middle of the marker which I thought was quite different and attractive. What was nice about the ball markers was even though the size was a little bit bigger than the ball marker I typically use they were very thin so it still wouldn’t cause any issues or be a distraction on the green.
They sent me a couple of other items, a keychain, sticker and a 11” x 14” poster with their logo. I am not sure all or any of these items are going to be available for purchase. I look at them as more of a advertising or merchandising item they might have on hand at events.
I admire the mission of FLW THRU Golf by providing clubs to the youth. To date they have helped 25 kids, built 2 sets of clubs and inspired close to 100 young golfers.This is a growing company and their product line is constantly evolving so check out their website lifeisaswing.com. They also have a presence on all the various social media platforms.
