Shannon Grissom, Inc.
For Immediate Release
Hollister, CA- Shannon Grissom and Daphne’s Headcovers build on successful monkey business.
Grissom announced today that her latest Monkey Made of Sockies design, sold exclusively through the Golfsmith chain, is arriving in the retailer’s stores this week. The latest design will cover the large drivers.
Early this year, Jane Spicer of Daphne’s Headcovers approached Grissom about designing a male companion to their original sock monkey headcover. Grissom states, “I was very excited and honored to work with Daphne’s again. I credit the great staff at Daphne’s Headcovers for making Monkey Made of Sockies one of Daphne’s Headcovers top 5 selling golf club headcovers.”
As for the new design, it’s already getting great reviews:
“Art takes many forms and is truly in the eye of the beholder. The delightful design of the new Monkey Made of Sockies is a perfect blend of the artistic imagination of Shannon Grissom coupled with the talented craftmanship of Jane Spicer and her team at Daphne’s Headcovers. In this case, “MonkeyShines” is a good thing!”

Grissom’s late mother, Patricia Cordone, inspired the Monkey Made of Sockies character. Pat was a beloved teacher and she loved dogs, so when Grissom learned of Gabriel’s Angels successful pet therapy work, she knew it was the perfect fit for charitable giving. Their mission, “To deliver healing pet therapy to abused, neglected and at-risk children, nurturing their ability to love and trust, thereby freeing them from the cycle of violence.” Grissom will be donating a percentage of her royalties from each headcover to their cause.
