Tiger Woods’ new investment, Pop Stroke￼
There is a company that is emerging recently in the United States, where the golf industry is most developed in the world. PopStroke is a golf entertainment company that operates a facility that combines a 36-hole artificial turf putting course with a fine restaurant, sports bar and children’s playground.
Popstroke’s slogan tells everything simply and clearly. It’s ‘Eat. Putt. Drink’. Many families use Palm Stroke. The whole family plays golf on the putting course and eats together at the restaurant. And in the evening, friends and lovers can have a drink at the sports bar and relieve stress. The putting course has a night facility, so you can play at night, and cheerful music plays throughout the round to add to your excitement.
Created by Greg Bartoli, who worked at Wall Street’s JP Morgan in 2019, Popstroke recruited Tiger Woods, the ‘golf emperor’, as a course architect and investor in 2020, the following year, and succeeded in attracting TaylorMade, a recent large investor, four years after its launch. did. 먹튀검증
Popstroke opened its first store in Port St. Lucie, Florida four years ago. And business partner Woods and his TGR design team participated in the design and renovated the putting course. Currently, it has opened five more locations in Sarasota, Fort Myers, Orlando, and Houston, and will open an additional location in Tampa on the 17th. Popstroke plans to open two more locations in Arizona within the next six months.
TaylorMade, which has become a partner, will lend Popstroke golf balls and premium rental putters. Customers will take back their used golf balls as souvenirs. Until last year, Japan’s Bridgestone ball, which was used by Tiger Woods, was used for Pop Stroke, but this time it was replaced with a TaylorMade ball.
TaylorMade CEO Davies Ablis said, “I was inspired by Popstroke’s family orientation and decided to invest in it. For this reason, Palmstroke continues to grow even in the bad conditions of the corona pendemic.
Woods, who lives in Jupiter, Florida, has used his business acumen to even bring in TaylorMade, his supplies contractor. Popstroke is evaluated to have raised the company value to $650 million (approximately 804.5 billion won) with TaylorMade’s investment. TaylorMade was acquired in 2021 by Centroid, a Korean private equity fund, for $1.71 billion (approximately KRW 2.1152 trillion). Centroid is also the company that acquired South Springs CC.
