Marine Drive Mobile Corp. Appoints Golf Industry Specialist to Lead eTeeoff; Ryan Andrews, Son of Walker Cup Golfer Gene Andrews, Named Director of Golf Operations for eTeeoff.com(December 13, 2011)
SAN FRANCISCO, CALIFORNIA -- (Marketwire) -- 12/13/11 -- Marine Drive Mobile Corp. (OTCBB:MDMC) ("Marine Drive" or the "Company") is pleased to announce the appointment of Ryan Andrews as the Director of Golf Operations for eTeeoff.com ("eTeeoff"). Andrews, the son of 1961 Walker Cup Golfer Gene Andrews, has been developing and marketing innovative golf products along with his family for over three decades. At eTeeoff he will be responsible for leading all golf industry sales and channel development activities to help achieve the Company's aggressive growth plans for eTeeoff.
"Golf has been in Ryan's blood ever since he first started chipping balls as a toddler along side his dad," said Colin MacDonald, Marine Drive Mobile Corp. Founder and President. "He has taken that passion and turned it into a lifelong business association with the game he loves. Whether he's talking about the latest golf teaching aide or a new ball mark repair tool, he is committed to both helping golfers enjoy every moment they are on the course and supporting the golf businesses that make it all happen. Ryan also has long standing relationships with golf companies and vendors across the country, and through his network of distributors is currently selling products to over 400 golf courses in the U.S., Asia, and Europe."
As the son of 1961 Walker Cup Golfer Gene Andrews, who is known as the father of playing by yardage, Ryan took his father's legendary chipping guide and helped create the iPitching Guide mobile golf app (available on iTunes). He also patented the divot repair tool, the Divvy-Up(TM), which is currently on sale at many of the finest golf courses in the world. Since 1999, he has owned and operated Nectar Golf, Inc. in Los Angeles and Atlanta marketing golf related products including the Divvy-Up, the iPitching Guide and the Pin Balls practice putting device.
"Innovation and driving sales are critical for golf business operators," said Ryan Andrews, newly appointed Director of Golf Operations at eTeeoff. "I'm looking forward to bringing my knowledge of the game and extensive golf industry network together with Marine Drive Mobile's merchant-focused business model and innovative coupon creation engine that makes the process of creating electronic coupons and offers as easy as sending an email."
Much of Ryan's initial love for the game stems from the stories his father told around the dinner table transforming the game and seeing his "playing by yardage" strategy adopted by the game itself and the legends that popularized it. The story goes that before Jack Nicklaus began his run of major championships he noticed the elder Andrews pacing out and marking down the yardage of each golf hole. Jack asked to borrow Gene's notebook, and implemented the yardage strategy into his game - and the rest is history. When his father's work led to the planting of the first cypress tree at the hundred-fifty yard mark little did he foresee the day when he would be developing training aids and mobile phone apps to help the next generation of golfers.
