Veterans Golf Association Becomes an Affiliate of HIRZL


HIRZL, the #1 Golf Glove in Long Drive and the leading specialist for high performance golf gloves, has entered into an affiliate agreement with the Veterans Golf Association, an international golf development organization that promotes golf to veterans and their families.

“The team here at HIRZL is extremely proud of this partnership. The VGA is an inspiration organization with programs that ‘help to improve a veteran’s golf game but more importantly helps heals through camaraderie and competition.’ We are honored this noble group can earn money through the HIRZL affiliate plan,” commented Steve Gray, HIRZL Vice President of Sales and Marketing.

As a HIRZL affiliate, the Veterans Golf Association will receive a percentage of sales which derive from their website. “The process is fairly easy. The HIRZL logo featured on the Veterans Golf Association website will be linked to the HIRZL website. When a HIRZL glove is purchased through this link, the program raises money. It is a win-win situation,” added Gray.

About the Veterans Golfers Association:

The Veteran Golfers Association started as an idea amongst wounded veterans at Walter Reed Hospital in the Washington D.C. area to encourage each other to not only improve their games, but to also heal through camaraderie and competition. After recovering from their injuries, these friends relocated around the country, and missed the opportunity to compete against one another regularly.

Realizing that other veterans might be in this same situation, these friends got together in 2014 to create the Veteran Golfers Association, the first golfing organization dedicating to promoting the game to all veterans and their family members.

The VGA is a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit organization committed to promoting the game of golf to the veterans and their family members. The VGA develops programs that allow our members to compete, socialize, and remain physically active through the game of golf.

About HIRZL:

Headquartered in Switzerland, with North American operations based in Granbury, TX, is a leading specialist for high performance sports gloves. HIRZL’s focus is solely on gloves with products specifically designed for golf and cycling, which is in contrast to many sports manufacturers with wide ranges of products spanning equipment, shoes and fashion. HIRZL’s gloves are designed with the latest scientific, technical and ergonomic mechanics data on how sports equipment is used on the hands. The company philosophy is based upon the firm belief that gloves are an essential part of the equipment for many types of sports. When gloves are used in sports, they become the only true link between the hands of the sportsperson and their equipment.

HIRZL Gloves Manufactured for the “Ultimate Glove Experience:”

HIRZL manufactures their high performance gloves with only the finest genuine leather, natural kangaroo or cabretta leather which has been additionally tanned with a propriety technology. The leather is individually stretched by hand and table cut, effectively ensuring the direction of stretch is controlled in each piece. For ventilation comfort a membrane directs the airflow and breathability characteristics to create a micro-environment for the skin to breathe more easily. The stretch fit feature provides a strategically based perfect fit and wearing comfort. All HIRZL gloves are constructed with a 45-degree “Pre-curved finger system” in consideration to the natural curvature of the hand and to avoid bunching effects and guarantee a perfect fit. For addition comfort, a sweat band made with terry towel absorbs sweat and water at the wrist area which also has a warming effect when temperatures are low.

HIRZL gloves deliver the “Ultimate Glove Experience” and golfers who teach or play professionally rely on the characteristics these high performance gloves produce including legendary teaching professional Dave Pelz. He endorses HIRZL and provides HIRZL gloves at The Dave Pelz Scoring Game Schools.
