    Another great show. I like Dean’s no-nonsense approach to the golf ball industry and appreciate that he wants to continue enjoying the business he built rather than try to transform it into something else he never envisioned.

    Dean Snell is easily one of my favorite people in the golf industry! There is no sugar coating and you know what he’s saying is what he knows to be true. Great interview!!!

    Really enjoyed listening to this, especially the insight into how things work on tour with players and their contracts, etc. I need to try these for sure.

    Tito’s huh? My kind of guy….I’m not the only one drinking vodka and diet!

    Those NE guys don’t hold anything back, I like it.

    I’m really digging the approach Dean is taking with his golf balls and marketing approach. Trying to keep the cost down as much as possible for the consumer but at the same time trying to get some of the market share to continue to grow. Also had no idea it was free and fast shipping. Marvel concept!

    Then throw in he’s a Titos guy, well, this Texas guy is a fan! This ball is on my 2018 to try list and if another THP/Snell event kicks off next year I will be 1st in line trying to get in! Great interview and information!

    Absolutely love this guy! His no nonsense attitude toward the golf ball industry is fabulous. I will continue to buy Snell balls. I hope the THP & Snell relationship just continues to grow and there are more events to come.
