The rebranding process began with those customers. We conducted focus groups and qualitative and quantitative research to better define who they are, what their needs are and what they look to us to deliver every in every interaction.”

From internet golf pioneer to industry leader, tgw.com took its first order in April 1998 and became one of the world’s first online golf retailers. Based out of Wichita, KS, tgw started as a small family-operated business with only four full-time employees. The company has since grown to approximately 250 team members. Now, with over 230,000 square feet of warehouse space devoted to over 40,000 golf products, tgw.com is the Sweetest Spot in Golf.
tgw.com’s growing success and positive customer feedback ignited a desire to venture into other sports industries. The company now includes BaseballSavings, SoftballSavings and SoccerSavings sites. With a combined inventory of approximately 75,000 items, the tgw family has earned a reputation as the go-to online source for not only the best golf products, but the best baseball, softball and soccer gear as well.
In 2013, Northern Tool & Equipment, Burnsville, MN, (northerntool.com) purchased the tgw.com family of brands along with sister company, The Sportsman’s Guide (sportsmansguide.com). A privately held company, Northern Tool & Equipment operates over 80 stores in 17 states and a sizeable ecommerce and catalog business.
