Rickie Fowler and Lexi Thompson Headline Custom Fitting Campaign
(ATLANTA, GA) – Rickie Fowler, one of the PGA TOUR’s rising young stars, Lexi Thompson the top-ranked American on the LPGA TOUR and COBRA PUMA GOLF are sharing the benefits of getting custom fit with PGA TOUR Superstore.
PGA TOUR Superstore is leveraging Fowler and Thompson to introduce a multi-faceted “Custom Fit Sweepstakes.” Golfers who visit a PGA TOUR Superstore or visit online can take advantage of a free custom club fitting, enter for a chance to meet Fowler or Thompson at an upcoming PGA TOUR event and win a complete set of custom fit clubs and a head-to-toe PUMA Golf apparel makeover, along with several other second prizes of free Cobra drivers. Fowler and Thompson are showcased in a fun and unique PGA TOUR Superstore video entitled “Bad Ideas” which was unveiled this week and encourages golfers to socially share why they want to meet Rickie and Lexi.
The Custom Fit Sweepstakes, designed to encourage golfers to visit a PGA TOUR Superstore for a free custom fitting, runs through the end of April.
“Rickie and Lexi appeal to golfers of all generations, but Millennials especially relate to their style and humor,” said Dick Sullivan, president and CEO of PGA TOUR Superstore. “Rickie and Lexi are sharing an important message: you can improve your golf game and getting custom fit can help. Both Rickie and Lexi bring energy and color to our sport and they make golf fun and interactive, which is what the PGA TOUR Superstore brand is all about.”
As part of the Custom Fit Sweepstakes, Fowler and Thompson will also appear in a national TV spot, engaging with an average duffer on the links. Thompson has her choice for her partner in their foursome and can either choose Rickie or “Bob” (the average golfer), and ends up choosing Bob because he was just recently custom fit for new golf clubs.
