Links & Kings

Sometimes you just know. From the Classic Sunday Walker golf bag to its stunning collection of head covers, every product from Links & Kings exudes the spirit of what we love about the game: Hand-crafted detail, respect for the past, an eye toward the modern game.

This line from the Links & Kings website says it all: “We travel the world sourcing the finest materials to create products that are unique as they are special.” TGJ shares a remarkably similar ethos, as we search golf courses around the globe for stories and images that our readers can’t find anywhere else.

There is something to be said for taking the time, effort and pride in creating products by hand. We know every issue of TGJ has to not only contain incredible content, but also feel substantial with high-quality ink and paper. Links & Kings does the same, using master craftsmen to build products for the course like leather shoe bags and for off the course like its Crown Collection of duffel bags.

The partnership between TGJ and Links & Kings makes sense on nearly every level, and we’re excited about bringing our two dedicated teams together. Our first project highlights the big things ahead: The exclusive TGJ Headcover for our Premium subscribers is simply gorgeous.

Titleist

Jordan Spieth. Justin Thomas. Adam Scott. Charlie Hoffman. Jimmy Walker. Rafa Cabrera Bello. The list goes on. And on. But you already know the best players in the world play Titleist. Here’s a name you likely don’t know: Helen Robinson. When Titleist officials were looking for a logo for their new ball in 1935, they turned to Robinson, their office secretary, because she had the most beautiful penmanship. Her simple, elegant script is now known at every golf course on the planet.

We can certainly relate to falling in love with the written word. We also share Titleist’s dedication to creating products that will last generations. The Titleist Pro V1 golf ball is, quite simply, the most successful piece of golf equipment in the history of the game. Over the decades, Titleist has grown to produce drivers, irons, wedges and putters to match that level of quality that are not only used by the best players in the world, but are used to win major golf tournaments. Our goal is to  build a publication that merely approaches this kind of sustained excellence.

From balls through Vokey wedges, players know they’re getting a historically great brand when they put Titleist clubs and balls in the bag. While we don’t yet have the history of Titleist, we’re humbled that they recognize our ambition and support our pursuit of a commercially quiet publication that celebrates the game we both love.

Linksoul

Linksoul is more of a philosophy than a brand. It is the collective life’s work of a group of people that care about each other and enjoy collaborating. They believe in making things with their hands, with the people they love, for the good of their families and our surroundings. Linksoul’s mission is to reconnect people to the soul of the game.

We at The Golfer’s Journal are incredibly proud to be considered part of that family. The people at Linksoul come from a long line of golfers, craftsmen and artists led by John Ashworth who began toying with the idea of Linksoul over twenty years ago while building Ashworth, Inc.

John also had big hand in the birth of TGJ. After learning about the concept it took him just a few holes to officially sign on as a Founding Sponsor (he was playing well). He, along with Linksoul Co-Founder and Creative Director Geoff Cunningham have helped shape the identity and ethos of our unique media platform.

Linksoul’s quality apparel and accessories are expertly and artfully created using the best materials. Just like TGJ.

Scotty Cameron Putters

Scotty Cameron and The Golfer’s Journal go all the way back to TGJ’s very inception. Although TGJ has been percolating in our minds for many years, it officially took root in the design room at Scotty’s Putter Gallery in Encinitas, California. Scotty backed the concept without hesitation. His encouragement and  enthusiasm for a premium, commercially-quiet publication that celebrates the beauty of golf in all its forms, set us off on down this path.

More than any other craftsman, Scotty has found a way to combine form and function into stunning creations that can be found in collectors’ homes as well as in the hands dozens of touring professionals around the world. His putters are in the winning bags of PGA and European Tour pros and have sunk winning putts for over 30 major champions. His attention to detail and dedication to performance have solidified his reputation as the world’s premier putter maker.

Scotty Cameron didn’t set out to change the game of golf. He simply believed that to make the best putters in the world, you needed the best materials and the best design. As it turns out, that simple recipe was a game-changer.

We feel the same way about TGJ. In The Golfer’s Journal, Scotty sees familiar DNA. “I’ve been a longtime reader of The Surfer’s Journal and was excited about the idea of a golf publication that would have the same premium, artistic and timeless feel. The Golfer’s Journal fills a huge void in golf. A publication that is thoughtful and beautifully designed fits right in with what we do.”
