Thinh Tran - Co-Creator of GimmePro and Founder of Transrover

Special guest

Thinh Tran grew up Elk Grove, California and arrived in the US when he was 15 along with his mother and four other siblings to reunite with his father and elder brother, who fled the country after the Vietnam war. Growing up in Vietnam with very little, Thinh's humble beginning taught him to make the most with what he had by inventing toys from a very young age.

Thinh's latest golf industry venture is the GimmePro, a groundbreaking golf ball retrieval solution tailored for all golfers that is designed to save time and build a better short game. GimmePro streamlines practice sessions with unparalleled efficiency and convenience. GimmePro has an innovative adjustable handle lets you adjust to your desired height to easily and quickly pick up balls. With a simple push of the button, the ball door opens to dispense all 24 balls.

The Transrover golf cart...
"When I picked up the game of golf during college, it was love at first sight. I soon realized there's a need for Transrover. It was natural for me to get hands-on with whatever random scraps I can gather. I started hacking out prototypes in my backyard. While balancing a fulltime job and starting a family, I never stopped making progress with Transrover. The road has been tough but I never gave up."

"When we showed off our prototype to the world for the first time at the 2018 PGA Merchandise Show, we won the "Most Innovative" award at the show. Shortly after, we successfully completed our Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign. Finally, after all the hard work and perseverance, we have completed our first production run. We are excited to continue our incredible journey to bring Transrover to the golfing world."
