New Brand of Golf Clubs from Tennessee

Tennessee has never gotten short of having itself represented in the sport golf. A Chattanooga-based company, Scratch Golf, is now up into club-making business. Sooner or later, we shall see this brand in the list of winning golf clubs.

“We’ve been close,” says the company co-founder, Ari Techner. The company manufactures 45 wedges for LPGA Tour golfer Cristie Kerr in each season. Some of the golf clubs used by PGA Tour professionals David Duval and Ryan Moore are also of this brand.

Techner and his co-founder Jeff McCoy dream of their golf clubs to be appealing and used by both professional golfers and amateurs alike. Techner shared, “We do a full fitting, going from someone who knows nothing to getting the clubs they need.”

Scratch Golf is also into custom fitting of golf clubs. They modify and customize clubs based on the preferences and skills of their customers. A wide range of options for club and grip stamping are also available. Shaft designs and paints can also be modified. One of their clubs was customized and stamped with ‘The Ultimate Human’ as requested by one of their customers.

McCoy, himself, finds it odd. “But I’m not making the clubs for myself. Whatever makes them happy. They peel that bubble wrap off their new clubs, and they get that smile on their faces,” he admits.

Both founders never thought that the company would head this direction during the time that they were conceptualizing the business. “We started in a one-car garage. They were truly garage golf clubs. … Things have definitely evolved… Maybe someday, we’ll have a museum,” says the amused yet aspiring McCoy.
