Who Owns Twister Golf Ball Cleaner?
Alfonzo Dowe, Sr. is the inventor of The Twister. It’s his first venture into the world of business. He recently retired as an active duty police officer, moving his energy towards marketing this product. Dowe’s lack of business experience was a driving factor in his attempt to get support from the sharks. He blamed the demands of his day job for his inability to progress the product further on his own.
Dowe says it was a day on the links that led to the creation of The Twister. The avid golfer was in the midst of a grudge match with a friend when he had the opportunity to win the game. He missed that putt, and on further examination, he discovered a pocket of dirt on his ball, which he attributes the loss to. He decided that golfers needed a lightweight, portable ball washing device they could keep on them, freeing them from using stationary ball washing stations that may or may not be found on the course.
