Oren Kantor

Oren Kantor (BSBA ’10, MSE ’11) suffered an indelible humiliation as a senior on his high school golf team. After hitting an overzealous first putt that sailed past the hole, followed by a subsequent stroke that was struck too timidly leaving himself three feet shy of the target, his yips continued with a lip out before he finally found the back of the cup on attempt number four. His team lost the match by one stroke.

“But if Kantor, who went on to study marketing and entrepreneurship at the University of Florida, hadn’t been scarred by that costly double bogey, he never would have started Perfect Practice and invented the Perfect Putting Mat,” writes Mike Dojc of Forbes.

Read more about how Kantor’s persistence landed him a deal with 2020 Masters winner Dustin Johnson and growing sales of his Perfect Putting Mat.
