This Spring, Justin Gehrke will be reaching a milestone, having been a SCHEELS Expert for 25 years. Gehrke first became passionate about golf at age 12 when he was given the opportunity to play with his dad. Despite being left-handed, they found him a lefthanded starter set and he was hooked after hitting a forty-seven that same day. Gehrke loves meeting new people and helping find them the perfect gear. “Creating that experience and relationship with the customer is awesome because we love it when they come back and tell us about how it went,” says Gehrke, who is an avid golfer himself.
Whether they are pro-golfers or just getting started, Gehrke wants to help them improve their game and feel confident with their products after leaving the store.
To Gehrke, it’s the passion of the people and the staff that makes SCHEELS a unique retailer. “We are all passionate about the departments we work in and have fun playing the sports we sell in,” says Gehrke. “If we are passionate and the customers coming into the store are passionate about the sports it makes it so much fun to visit about the sport.” One of the fun aspects of being a SCHEELS Expert is testing out the products and gear. Gehrke loves the proline clubs all the brands have to offer, and his personal proline club of choice is the Sim2 Driver from TaylorMade.
