We are thrilled to announce Golf Influencer Mei Brennan as SuperStroke's newest brand ambassador.
Since graduating from Utah Tech four years ago, the 26-year-old from Salt Lake City has created a blossoming content career that has helped amass 390,000 followers on Instagram and 202,000 followers on TikTok. She only recently launched a YouTube channel because she feels it’s the best way to show her personality. Brennan will play SuperStroke grips and carry a SuperStroke golf bag when she creates golf content across her social media channels.
“Mei Brennan represents the rising generation in the game of golf and her appeal to younger players and a broad spectrum of golf enthusiasts around the world will make her a perfect person to champion the SuperStroke brand,” said SuperStroke Founder and CEO Dean Dingman. “We look forward to working creatively with Mei and supporting her as her influence in golf continues to grow.”
Brennan was born in Tokyo, Japan and moved to the United States when she was 8. It was then when her father introduced her to golf. At first, Brennan wasn’t overly interested in the game – she didn’t see many other kids around her playing at the time – but her father was in the military and often deployed to different places around the world. When he would return home, he wanted to spend time on the golf course and with his family, so Brennan would often tag along.
Years later Brennan played golf in high school, where she was a captain for three years and helped lead her team to three consecutive appearances in the state championship. That led her to a college career at Utah Tech. In all of her years of competing, Brennan doesn’t recall a time when she didn’t use a SuperStroke grip on her putter.
Brennan’s biggest break came three years ago when she was asked to compete in the second season of “Holey Moley,” a reality series on ABC where contestants put miniature golf and physical skills to the test while competing in outrageous challenges on a supersized course. Brennan won an episode, which aired in June 2020, and her popularity exploded overnight.
“I’m more of a shy and introverted person, so being on TV and having all those cameras, back then, I wasn’t used to it,” she said. “It put me out of my comfort zone. It was a great thing though and I did some crazy things that I never would have done.
“I still get recognized more from ‘Holey Moley’ now than my actual social media presence, and it’s been three years.”
Brennan is not afraid to admit that she never loved the cut-throat atmosphere of competitive golf but still loves the game and enjoys trying to convey that message to her audience on a daily basis. She played in a tournament earlier this year, and was pleased with her performance, but knows that life as an Influencer is what suits her best.
“I took all the parts that I love about the game and I’ve made it into a career,” she said. “I just want people to know that I love the game and I’m having fun with it. That’s my brand. I also want to try to build my female following and show them that the game is not intimidating and that there are cute things to wear on the golf course.”
Brennan recently switched the SuperStroke grip in her putter from the Zenergy Pistol to the Zenergy XL Tour 2.0+plus and has customized the look of her clubs by using one color of grips for her irons and another for her driver and woods.
Several players on golf’s major professional tours have already put SuperStroke Zenergy grips in play. SuperStroke grips are trusted by legions of top professional golfers, including three-time major winner Jordan Spieth, eight-time winner on the PGA Tour Patrick Cantlay, and 2019 PGA Tour Rookie of the Year Sungjae Im. Even before SuperStroke’s first PGA TOUR win by K.J. Choi in 2008, the brand was a pioneering force in putter grips. Zenergy grips now mark the culmination of that relentless innovation, fueled by feedback from more than 450 tour pros in the past year. From signature shapes and sizes to the cutting-edge materials, SuperStroke delivers unprecedented features into every Zenergy grip while connecting golfer and putter like no other product on the market.
