    Fleetwood is the best guess but does he light up the industry?



    Curry is all Callaway and why would they think signing a basketball star would help with selling golf clubs?



    or maybe with the hyperbole, it is Rickie with ball deal

    " will light up the industry and enhance the impact of our brand like never before" - it's official! Whoever TM are bringing in has more pulling power than Tiger, Rory, JD and the rest of their team. Cant wait to find out who it is.



    It def cant be a golfer based on the above quote.

    Fleetwood

    He is on the front page "spotted" with TM TW irons and it has been up since at least last night. Doesn't this give us a clue?



    "Fleetwood looks to be looking to alternatives ahead of next week’s Abu Dhabi HSBC Golf Championship, judging from the pictures below. It’s not surprising, then, given the apparent similarity between the P-7TW iron and Nike VR Pro Blade, that Fleetwood would opt to put the irons to the test early in the year."

    Oh, changed my mind and still HOing ....but HC finally moving in the right direction.

    Fleetwood would be a real nice signing given his high profile play of late. Not sure if it "lights up the industry" but still a solid signing if he does come on.

    There’s a lot more people who buy golf related items based on tour usage than those who don’t. If that wasn’t the case there would be no need for companies to sponsor players.

    My guess is no. It will definitely garner attention to see him in a commercial with DJ, Rory and the rest, but long term I think seeing a company logo on the players hat, or bag/head covers has more of an impact by association.

    I received a letter/email from David Abeles at TaylorMade the other day. This is what he said:



    "In addition to our continued product leadership, we are preparing to make one of the most significant announcements in company history - a new addition to our athlete team that will light up the industry and enhance the impact of our brand like never before. Please stay tuned. You will hear from us in a couple of weeks!



    We believe 2019 will be our best year yet. We are inspired by the momentum in our industry and all of the work being done across channels to drive participation in golf. We are proud of the progress we are making in our business together, bullish about our growth plans for 2019, and looking forward to an early spring with strong demand for our new products.



    On behalf of the entire TaylorMade Golf team, we thank you for your continued dedication to our partnership and for all that you do to make this possible.



    Sincerely,





    David Abeles

    CEO TaylorMade Golf"





    So, my question is, will this be the Rickie Fowler ball/glove deal announcement or is this something else? Obviously the Rickie deal is the second worst kept secret behind Rose/Honma, but I don't think he is going to be playing their new TruVis copycat ball until later in the spring, so why announce it now? And that announcement certainly doesn't fit or live up to the type of hype insinuated in this letter. I love Rick and wish him the best but he wouldn't even be the third most successful player on their tour staff. Talk about disappointing if that's the real announcement.



    Which leads me to my second question... are they seriously going to make a big announcement during the PGA Show, which they are not attending? What a joke. Hopefully they postpone it until well after the show.



    I'm interested to hear what the truth is behind this "most significant announcement".




    Just curious, but what do you do that you would get a letter/email from the CEO of TaylorMade Golf?






    I am still waiting for the OP to answer this question.

    For those saying it is Fleetwood, I think that is unlikely. I accept that he new seems to be bagging a set of Taylor Made irons but a change of irons for him was due given that he was running out of sets of Vr Pro's. Added to that, it seemed like Crossfield was filming with the Titleist guys yesterday. That included Fleetwood, it would seem strange to me that Fleetwood and Titleist would want to waste time having him film spots when he is about to relocate and start using a different ball.



    It has to be Fowler but he and pretty much no one they could announce will have the effect they are talking about. More nonsense from Taylor Made.

    I’m telling you nobody knows which ball rickie plays outside this site. They only know cobra/puma.



    It very likely is Rickie. But he isn’t going to change anything for anybody. Just more smoke and mirrors from TM as they try to stay afloat. Maybe they are sweetening the pot for the next buyer ?

    Maybe it is a bunch of pros switching to the TM ball and Rickie as the “star” of the group? The big thing would be TM doing ball/glove only deals and not fowler per sé.

    It’s a corporate letter. Everyone even remotely attached to Taylormade in some fashion received that email. He’s trying to be funny like the letter was sent only to him but it came off rather lame. Either that or the OP really doesn’t know he wasn’t the only one who got that email.

    Ball sponsors I get, but glove sponsors just seem weird to me. Does anyone care, or even notice what glove someone is
