No, we buy golf clubs based off of who won the tournament. Don't be ridiculous; everyone knows this.

I've been guilty of this in the past.  😬

So I go to YouTube to find this.  Hilariously stupid stunt.  I’m sure Gary was in on it.  I mean it’s so Gary.  But. The best part was finding other Wayne player instructional videos.  I mean wow.  Just wow.  I’d rather take swing advice from Dorf.

Look, I'm not the biggest Gary Player fan due to the fact that all he talks about is himself.  I also know nothing about his sons but I thought I remembered there being a lawsuit between him and one of his sons over his Black Knight branding.

 

That being said...

Let's not pretend there isn't a logo or branding shoved in our faces at every waking moment.  Look at the full bag of PING clubs next to Lee.  You don't think Ping wanted that bag placed right beside him, even though he wasn't hitting an actual shot?  They aren't providing his clubs to him to watch him go play with them.

 

Bryson DeChambeau sounds like a Nascar driver every he wins and gets in front of a camera.  Gary's son was perhaps a little more blatant about it but it wasn't any different in my opinion than every other logo that shows up in the picture, INCLUDING the Master's logo's and mandatory caddie jump suits.

 

I guess I'm just having a hard time understanding the drastic difference between what he did and what all the other sponsors are doing day in and day out.  Sounds like it had more to do with a beef between Augusta and Gary's son that they finally had something to "officially" ban him with.   

 

Golf crossed the Rubicon (for good) when Mr. Nicklaus started putting his golden bear logo on everything.  I imagine a lot of pros/sponsors/organizers thought, "If Jack does it, it must be a classy move."  

 

There was a time when the classy move would be to not wear logos at all.  Does anyone remember when Tom Watson famously wore a logo-less visor in protest of the crass commercialization of our foreheads?

Augusta National: Nothing to see here.

Augusta National: Outrageous! Ban him!

 

 

 

 

Edit - Not to defend Wayne Player, but I'm sick to hell of self-righteous Augusta National members.

 

 

 

A PRIVATE Club admits whoever they want. If you me or anyone else doesn't like that. Oh well. Rules are rules. They have a member board that makes the decisions. Augusta caved to society pressure and has now allowed both blacks and women. No matter what you may think. Augusta can and should be able to do what they want when it comes to membership. Even if I don't agree with it.

You forgot to add in Augusta National had been a club for 80+ years filled with racism, sexism, infidelity, and tar and feather Tiger after he cheated on his wife. Don't forget asking Slick Rick to turn his hat around on national TV rather than telling him before he went into his presser.

The differences of what you circled vs purposely holding up a sleeve of balls likes a Price is Right model is profound. It's amazing you and some of the others can't discern the difference. 

 

Agree and seriously would it take wearing something like this before it was unacceptable to everyone? There has to be a line somewhere right?

That would be incorrect!  But Jack likely got the idea from Arnold or their agent or came up with it on his own.  Arnie's logo'ing was well established when this pic was taken in 1962, and well before the "Golden Bear" came about.
