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

Thank you all that participated in our giveaway!!! Now onto the exciting stuff; UST Mamiya and I have partnered to create a limited run of Driver/Fairway shafts with 100% of the proceeds going to Susan G Komen for Breast Cancer Research. Shafts are $150 each and are available in either 7F5, 6F5, or 6F4 (F5 is X-stiff and F4 is stiff). DM me to order. 1 in 8 women are affected by Breast Cancer. My mother being one of them was diagnosed with Stage 4 breast cancer when I was in 8th grade, she fought for 11 years eventually losing that battle in 2016, right around the time I picked up golf. When she was originally diagnosed I had no idea what the severity was but everyday she battled and fought and still managed to attend every extra curricular activity and school event all the way through my college career. She never missed a baseball game scheduling chemo around my high school and college schedule, driving four hours up to Pennsylvania and back to watch my ass sit in the bullpen and sometimes pitch. She was the epitome of tough and was the best role model, boss, and friend I could ask for. I really wish she could meet the friends that I have made through this golf community and where this game has taken me in the past few years. I miss you every day.???????? • • • • • #golf #golfer #golfingaround #instagolf #golfdigest #swooshlife #golfgear #trendygolf #alwaysbegolfing #pinkribbon #survivor #whyilovethisgame #golfaddict #golfislife #golfbabes #breastcancerawareness #breastcancerawarenessmonth #golfswing #golfvideo #pga #golfclub #cancersucks #thinkpink #golfcourse #golfwrx #golfaddict #Swooshlife #golfvibes #golfreviews #golfswag #golfchannel

Stephen Curry and Callaway Golf announce multi-year partnership with a focus on philanthropic and game-expanding initiatives

Published

on

Stephen Curry and Callaway Golf announced on Monday a new multi-year partnership which will see the two combine on philanthropic and game-expanding endeavors

Through the partnership, various initiatives will be implemented which the NBA star will undertake with a focus on expanding the game by making it more accessible to underserved and underrepresented youth.

Speaking on the partnership, Curry stated

“I am beyond excited for the opportunity to work with Callaway Golf. Their ability to think outside the box on how we can collectively grow the game of golf is second to none. I can’t wait to begin rolling out some of our ideas to make golf more accessible to boys and girls around the world.”

Recently, the 31-year-old helped Howard University launch their first-ever Division 1 Golf Program, with a pledge to fund the university’s men’s and women’s programs for the next six years. Subsequently, Callaway announced that they would be the official golf equipment provider for the program.

Curry is currently also the Executive Producer for the new ABC mini-golf show, “Holey Moley,” and according to Callaway, the new partnership will also feature co-produced original content in the spirit of Curry’s endeavors in golf.

Chip Brewer, President & CEO, Callaway Golf Company, stated on the partnership that

“We’ve found an incredibly like-minded partner in Stephen. His love of golf is something we at Callaway immediately connected with. And over time we realized we shared much more than that: a vision to create opportunities for access to the sport for people that might not have it. With our support, Stephen is uniquely positioned to create meaningful experiences in golf.”
