With the 1st week of the PGA Tour season here it is no surprise to see plenty of changes out on the tour, specifically players with new endorsement contracts.
While the last few months has seen plenty of rumors regarding this topic, a kind reader (thanks Matt) suggested we might want to put all the moves in one easy-to-read post.
I joked that we might not have enough bandwidth to accomplish that, given the amount of movement this year, but in any case we will give it a whirl.
The original plan will only to include changes that are confirmed via the companies – but we’ll add a few more deals we have heard as possibilities with a question mark, until they are confirmed or denied.
Many of the new contracts are not head to toe, 14 club deals, but we will include the primary deal in place that covers the largest balance of the players’ equipment.
