If GolfWRX sponsored a player on the PGA Tour, who would it be?

Published

on

Here’s an interesting question: In an environment of hat/visor deals being divested from club deals, and more players going without headwear sponsorship than we’ve seen recently, what if GolfWRX sponsored a Tour pro?

LYG, original poster, posed the question

“If all Golfwrx members put in $100 — and we REALLY sponsored someone, who would it be?

“ASSUME we could afford anyone. (That’s a big assumption — please don’t reply how we could not afford this…even though some people will still go down that rat hole).

“Who WOULD YOU WANT?”

As you can tell from his liberal use of all caps: LYG is passionate about the subject, and kudos to him for kicking off an excellent discussion.

Here are a few of the suggestions.

GatorMD says: Jason Dufner

MtlJeff says: “We could easily afford it. You can get your logo on a top 50 player for 50-100k. Henrik Stenson? I’ve never heard a bad thing about him here.”

Night train says: CH III

Duffer987 says: James Hahn

Beluga99 says: I think KJ Choi’s weekly club changes would get my vote as representative of the wider Golfwrx.
Bladehunter says: Now this is a great idea!!!! I vote Harold Varner 100%…. William Mccgirt would be my #2 guy .

And of course, there are plenty of mentions of Tiger Woods scattered throughout.

So, what do you think, GolfWRX members? Who ought to have the honor of wearing the GolfWRX logo on his hat? What master tinkerer and unrepentant club ho? What tryer of techniques and scholar of swing science?

Let us know who you think the man for job ought to be.

My vote: After Jason Dufner paid out of pocket for those National Custom Works irons, he sealed the deal. Let’s get Dufner in this WRX 9FIFTY snapback!

    Ben, why don’t you raise the idea up to the powers at be within Golfwrx about really doing this, sponsoring someone…and “crowdsource” the funds, i.e. from Golfwrx members.

    Lots of interest, close to 5,000 views now.

    Sponsor somebody on the Web.com and the Symetra. If they can get from these tours to the PGA and LPGA the sponsors will find them.

    Cheyenne Knight has Symetra Tour status and is leaving Alabama after this school year so how about her.

    It would have to be the longest driver, still plays a 1 iron, uses 6 wedges, no iron covers, a stand bag, triple x shafts with a 102 mph swing speed with aggressive transition. I cant think of any off the top of my head so we’d have to get an actual scratch wrxer
