Alfonzo gave a masterful display of what The Twister can do for golfers. He caught the sharks’ attention with his convenient product and his knowledge of the sport.
Convenient and easy to use. Only patented golf ball cleaner with scrubbing bristles. Included in box: Twister, hook for hanging on golf bag, use instructions. Material: Durable Plastic.
Alfonzo was looking for a partner, because he wasn’t a businessman. He was a police officer, which prompted some jokes from the sharks about whom he should arrest among them.
Alfonzo said his sales were coming from the flea markets and online sales because he didn’t have much free time.
Robert Herjavec and Kevin O’Leary weren’t sure it appealed to golfers, but Alfonzo countered that by saying friends and loved ones of golfers would enjoy gifting them.
Kevin Harrington went out because it didn’t appeal to him, and Barbara Corcoran said she hated golf so she went out too. Robert followed out, and so did the remaining Kevin.
That left only Daymond John, but he went out because he didn’t know enough about the sport to be a relevant business partner.
The sharks admired the engineering of the product, but were not confident in the business model. Without an offer from the sharks, Alfonzo was forced to leave
