Bring Out The Beast In Your Golf Game!

"When I'm picking a partner for a tournament, I always pick Sean. I'm not going to lie: having a guy fly it 360 isn't going to hurt you in a scramble, but it's way more than that with him. I think the ultimate compliment you can give an athlete is that he'd be a perfect team sport guy, and there's no doubt Sean Fister would fit in to any locker room. Golf is such an individual sport that you wonder how a lot of these guys would react when other guys are relying on them, or in that give and take. You don't wonder that about Sean. He's just a great, great guy and a great teammate. There's no helping my game-I've got golf demons in my head that I've got to get rid of-but I've seen him do some amazing things."
--NBA HALL-OF-FAMER CHARLES BARKLEY

"Sean 'The Beast' Fister is the ultimate competitor, and watching him perform at the highest level in his sport has been inspiring. I'm proud to be associated with him in business, and I'm proud to call him a friend."
--CRAIG PAYLOR, PRESIDENT, JLG INDUSTRIES
