Meet the Creators
Kavooa Golf was born out of a high school junior's passion and determination to increase his golf skills during the COVID-19 pandemic. Dylan was determined to find a way to practice his swing, even when access to the golf course and motivation was limited. Andrew wanted nothing more than to encourage the innovation and support Dylan in creating a golf training aid that could be adopted by both coaches and students alike.

Co-Founder & Chairman
At age 13, Andy started working in the boating business which provided him skills and experience he used to invent a new boating anchor and selling boating accessories over a 10-year period. Eventually, this business which he started with his father grew allowing them to sell in his early 20’s to a division of Brunswick and even landed their products in Walmart.
