How did they make THIS mistake in “The Match” promo poster?

Published

on

The organizers of “The Match” may want to allocate some of the $9 million purse to hiring someone to proof their ads.

Take a look at this Western-style poster Tiger Woods tweeted.

Notice anything? Take a closer look at Tiger’s TaylorMade M3.

That’s right, folks. Or rather, it’s wrong. Whoever designed the poster is either a non-golfer or superb prankster, because that’s a left-handed driver.

Phil Mickelson was quick to spot it.

Of course, an alternate possibility is that Woods will be swinging a left-handed driver right-handed to make a possible victory over Mickelson in the Thanksgiving weekend showdown that much more impressive. Perhaps both players will be playing with drivers suited for the other hand? OR maybe they’ll be playing with each other’s driver? That must be it…Or it could be a DELIBERATE faux screw-up to generate additional publicity. Hmm…

    What does this have to do with DJ’s new putter?

    The mistake? Putting it on in the first place never mind PPV. I’m sure I’ll have laundry to do that day.

    Now this has came to light I suggest collecting printed ads if there are any. Wonder when they will change them. Sorta reminds me of some of the Beatles Abbey Road albums if you are old enough to rember

    Ben, the poster is not the only thing that needs proofing. It’s ‘whomever’ not ‘whoever’.

    Tiger has to play with Phil’s sticks, thought everybody knew that. Seriously, the whole idea is kind of a joke so just for fun, they should have to play one hole out of each other’s bag. I’d tune in for that.

    This thing is a farce. I wonder why some comments are not posted. Is someone at WRX offended?

    Big deal, I wish they were playing with their own money. Now really don’t think much of the match.

    Probably a photo from when he played Nike clubs, and somebody (badly)photoshopped in the TM.

    No value added. Insignificant.

    It’s a prankster message, saying that it doesn’t matter what he uses, he can’t keep it in play anyway

    I assume the article is tongue-in-cheek, because – of course – promotional materials are generally designed by graphic designers. The chances the particular designers know anything about golf are down to population percentages; if they do play at all, it’s probably once a year…

    You’ll see the same goofy mistakes in any area you inspect; eg, people in ads and movies talking into the wrong part of a microphone (and often not plugged in)… You’ll find tons of reversed images everywhere in advertising.

    TaylorMade probably paid for it to be wrong, trying to show off that Twist-Face

    Um, Tiger wore blue today and has before. Try googling Tiger Blue Shirt images

    Two more errors…. Tiger never wears a blue golf shirt, red, black or white but never blue…. and the Nike swoosh logo is replaced by his TW logo…

      Maybe never in competititon. But NEVER?
