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

The Challenge: Japan Skins – All the details that you need to know

Published

on

Just three days remain before Tiger Woods, Rory McIlroy, Hideki Matsuyama and Jason Day take part in “The Challenge: Japan Skins”, and here are all the essential details that you need to know before the event takes place.

What is the Skins format?

  • The lowest score for each hole wins that hole and the money that hole is worth.
  • In the result of a tied hole, the “skin” carries over to the next hole and continues to do so until won by one of the four players.
  • In the result of a tied 18th hole, a playoff will take place to see who wins the final skin.
  • The value of the 18th hole will not multiply if a playoff takes place.

The value of each skin.

  • Holes 1-6: $10,000 per skin
  • Holes 7-12: $15,000 per skin
  • Holes 13-17: $20,000 per skin
  • Hole 18: $100,000 super skin

What we know about the extra challenges.

  • Money won from the extra challenges will go towards the event’s charity partners.
  • Extra challenge details are not yet known, but expect something similar to the side action we saw in “The Match Woods-Mickelson.”

How can you watch?

  • Event takes place October 21st, 1 PM local time in Japan, 12 AM ET in the U.S.
  • U.S. viewers can watch the simulcast live on Golf Channel beginning at 11 p.m. ET.
  • Viewers outside the U.S. can tune into the event on Discovery’s GOLFTV.
  • Those in the UK & Ireland will need to pay a small subscription fee for Discovery’s GOLFTV.

Who is the betting favorite?

  • Rory McIlroy is a warm favorite for the event at +200.

Full odds courtesy of BetOnline:

  • Rory McIlroy +200
  • Hideki Matsuyama +250
  • Jason Day +300
  • Tiger Woods +325
