After watching the women play at the SemGroup Championship this week in Broken Arrow, lots of the spectators would like to improve their own game. The News On 6's Rick Wells reports that a business east of downtown, ParBuster, has been making golf practice equipment for 45 years.
Colleen Swan is assembling another golf practice net that will end in a training or testing facility somewhere or maybe even someone's garage or basement. Colleen's been doing this for ParBuster for almost 20 years.
This one is going to Grand Junction, Colorado. They've got it set up to make sure it all fits together.
Ron Marsh is writing up the assembly instructions for the eventual customer.
"We don't do just retail customers we do Nike, Titleist, Bridgestone, Mitsubishi," said Brandon Waller with ParBuster.
They use ParBuster nets and mats in their testing and training facilities. There are enough rolls of artificial turf here to do almost anything.
"You could create an entire artificial golf course, and it would be pretty realistic," said Brandon Waller.
They haven't done that yet, but they have created putting greens and artificial turf training areas in people's back yards. And, they custom make equipment in different sizes and prices. A 4 foot by 12 foot putting mat sells for $250 dollars.
In addition to the golf training equipment, ParBuster is expanding its line of baseball cage nets, netting and turfing for other sports as well.
