Is there a worse brand ambassador than DJ?

DJ isn't the brightest bulb in the closet.  He is a great player, but he has zero personality.  As has already been pointed out Patrick Reed would take the basement in that category.  What Kevin Kisner said about his teammates at GA think of him is enough, i.e. if Reed were on fire . . .

Me and 2 other former pro's from another sport have played in one corporate outing with him and one charity dinner with him at the next table. The corporate outing is where it started to go bad. The guy's attitude is terrible. 

 

Don't think he cares how he comes across to others, another boring player to watch, no emotion, no engagement with the crowds, so glad Phil smoked him yesterday!!

His interview on Wednesday before the PGA was hilarious:

 

Reporter: "I see you have a new putter in play, what kind is it?"

DJ: "I'm not sure, it's a Taylor Made."

Reporter: "Do you know what model?"

DJ: "Yeah, I don't know.  It's got a silver head and a white shaft." 

 

I know DJ is a bit of a simpleton, but the TM reps have to be like "C'mon, man!" 

I think the very fact that the media cares enough to ask proves he's good for Taylormade.

It's probably a prototype you can't buy.  And they just keep handing him a dozen different ones until he finds one that makes putts.  Why would he know anything about it other than it looks good and works that week.  Besides, all the money is in selling drivers, and all he has to do is bomb that.  Also probably doesn't know much about the specs on that either.

I get it, this is WRX so some are extremely obsessive over equipment brand, model, specs and find it odd when others don't obsess over equipment in the same way.  I absolutely love the fact that DJ only knew it was a TM and he liked it.

 

 

Prior to the "unrevealing" putter comment, DJ (standing at the players' breakfast bar) was heard saying, "me no like flapjacks."

For pete's sake, you people actually think DJ is strategizing in his interviews?

Koepka would get his a** kicked in the NFL.  He is no way big enough for a LB, DT, or DE.

Not after he lost 20 pounds.  He was larger back in 2018.  He would def be a safety/LB hybrid in the NFL now.

People really discount how much toughness and grit you need to have to be a linebacker or safety. No golfer right now or in the future would have even the remote amount of success in the NFL. 

 

Koepka is as soft as baby s**t.  NFL...😂

Here's an article about Paulina in today's NY Post...

 

https://nypost.com/2021/05/25/paulina-gretzky-declined-playboy-for-dustin-johnson-concern/

 

This quote was fairly amusing...I have a difficult time believing she doesn't like attention!

 

“I’m like ‘Let’s go to a courthouse’ and he’s like, ‘No, baby, I want a party, I want everyone to celebrate us.’ I’m like ‘Ugh, I have to be the center of attention, OK.’ It really gave me anxiety a little bit to be that girl. I’m going to have like 10 wardrobe changes [at my wedding], though.”

Eh, TaylorMade likely knew what they were getting with DJ. Great player, but he's no rocket surgeon. 

HIs only requirement is to win tournaments, be one of the TM ambassadors and try and be a good boy for the sake of the PGA Tour's squeeky clean image.  Honestly, as someone who trains pro athletes, I can say that some of them are very intelligent while others, not so much.

Worst ambassador - T bear (Thorbjorn Olesen)

 

at least that I can think of 

He might make a great brand ambassador for Depend maximum absorption underwear. He could certainly sell on the advantages of using the product on long international flights 🙂

It all goes back to the ol hustler mentality. I know some very good sticks who act like they don't know anything about shafts, or technical stuff. It's to give off the vibe I just play this game, and I just use whatever equipment I have. Which is all BS, the guys been fitted for his shafts and has everything customized 😅

What did I do to you to make you tell on me like that???---- I play country boy redneck stupid very well but most people here at the Beach have caught on to me.

I think Dj has a bit of personality because he is so..well Dj, a lot of people know him because of what he's like

 

On the other hand who would ever want Patrick Cantlay, the guy makes blank paper interesting

Why bring logic and reason into this discussion?  Can't you just leave them be and let them go on with their "short bus" and "coke-addled" comments?

 

At some level Paulina has to play into this right?

She must since the PGA Tour forced them to get engaged.

To be fair, he could have still been using his Scotty Cameron and been an even worse brand ambassador.
