Tour Pro Ads

Recommended Posts

It seems that last few years Tour Pros have quite a few Advertisements on their hats, shirts & bags. Hats & bag ads have been around forever but the shirts have a lot more. I counted 8 ads maybe 9 on one Pros shirt. OK their making a living pushing their sponsors and it's a business but I hope they don't get to look like NASCAR drivers.

LOL I have been saying the same thing about them looking like NASCAR drivers the last couple of years but then again some of the professional fishermen look the same way. The one logo I hate is the giant Penguin on the Munsingwear Tour Shirts looks stupid to me but I see why they do it. I was always a big Munsingwear fan because the old man was a dealer and I had plenty of that stuff growing up. Now days I could give two hoots less what brand is on a shirt I wear

I've just started to notice a larger influx. Doesn't seem to bother me. You'd think it would...

I don't mind it. It's a way for guys to afford travel and such if they're struggling.

 

You notice the better players don't wear much signage because they're getting plenty of dough from winnings and their main sponsors.

Never really paid attention who advertises what until I saw a few minutes of Wyndham today and a couple of players had a lot of print on them.

Hey man, it's real estate for advertising. I'm not gonna judge them, if I was trying to make it as a tour pro I'd welcome whatever advertising I could to cover my costs. I'd feel no shame about what was on my shirt as long as it was something I'd feel comfortable with kids seeing.

 

If I had my choice I'd go with:

1. OnCore Golf Balls

2. Sketchers

3. Whole foods market

4. Meijer

5. Ikea

6. General Motors

7. Hanes

8. Oakley

9. Apt 9 Clothes

Lol what a list. You'd look like a Sprint Cup car out there. From what I've seen, the ads are usually golf or financial investment related.

 

Can't wait to see someone rocking a Wal-Mart hat on tour!

I think it is J B Holmes that rocks a Ben Hogan apparel shirt which is a Wal Mart Brand. Heard on the news the other day in the Forbes list of athletes that Mickelson is the highest paid golfer and they take into account endorsements etc. He only made 48 million last year. I think Speith only made 38 million last year. Believe it or not according to what I heard the highest two paid atheletes were soccer players I never have heard of. 

 

Me I would rock the Bank of Salome and the Rio Grande Short Haul Trucking shirt all the way! And me being the obsistant SOB that I am I would carry my old Macgregor green and white staff bag

Marc Leishman has the Ben Hogan sponsorship

I've always believed that any sport which has viewership on main television access that kids can end up seeing should have strict rules about what can be seen. No amount of money could motivate me to allow a company to sponsor me if the name or principles were not family friendly.

I can remember my old man knew the baseball great Ted Williams and he told me even though Ted smoked which was mostly acceptable in those days that he had several offers to endorse Chesterfield cigarettes and he would not do it. He did not want kids picking up the habit. BTW I never met Mr Williams myself

 

I know this for a fact NASCAR legend Richard Petty never ran a beer sticker on any of the cars he drove and owned. He explained it as "I promised my Mamma that I would never run a beer sticker on any of my cars" One year the late Bobby Hamilton won a pole in a Petty car but was not allowed to run in the year end dash for pole winners because his car did not display a Busch Beer sticker. Bobby stated that it did not make any difference to him and he respected the Petty's policy and he knew about Richard's wishes and policy when he signed to drive for them
