AUSTIN, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Just months after Phil Mickelson's Masters win resulted in Golfsmith giving away a $1 million in golf clubs, the nation's largest specialty golf retailer, hopes to have a repeat performance with another million dollar golf club giveaway.
Golfsmith (NASDAQ:GOLF) is teaming up with TaylorMade (ADDYY) and a trio of golfers, two-time U.S. Open Champion Retief Goosen, Sergio Garcia and Sean O'Hair with a new national promotion tied to the U.S. Open Golf Championship.
"Pick a Pro and Win" gives customers an opportunity to win new TaylorMade drivers, free of charge, if Garcia, Goosen or O'Hair, is victorious at Pebble Beach. Now through June 16 golfers who purchase one of three new TaylorMade drivers - the R9 Super Tri, Burner SuperFast or the R9 460 driver - at any Golfsmith store across the country will have the purchase price of their TaylorMade driver fully refunded by Golfsmith if the player they choose - Garcia, Goosen or O'Hair - wins the U.S. Open. Like the Phil Mickelson promotion, Golfsmith has purchased an insurance policy to cover the promotion.
"The U.S. Open is one of golf's ultimate tests," said Garcia, who has seven PGA Tour victories and is looking for his first U.S. Open Championship. "This promotion will add to the excitement for both the fans and players who are participating."
"I always look forward to competing in the U.S. Open," added Goosen, who has two U.S. Open victories (2001 and 2004). "Pebble Beach is a world-class venue worthy of another major championship, and I'm looking forward to the challenge."
