Cleveland Golf/Srixon announce signing of U.S Ryder Cup star
Wednesday, 15 April 2009
Cleveland Golf/Srixon is pleased to announce that PGA Tour player Boo Weekley has signed with the company to play Srixon® golf balls and continue using Cleveland® clubs and a Never Compromise® putter.
Boo Weekley, who was nicknamed after cartoon hero Yogi Bear's sidekick, "Boo Boo" Bear, is
a two-time winner on The PGA Tour and also played a major role in the U.S. Ryder Cup victory last fall.
Weekley, who also happens to be an avid hunter and fisherman, has experienced a rise in popularity that is unparalleled on the PGA Tour and is well known for attracting large and boisterous galleries which are commonly referred to as the Boo Crew.
“Cleveland clubs have gotten me where I am today,” said Weekley. “And I really love this Srixon golf ball. Now these boys know how to make a golf ball!”
“We couldn’t ask for a better representative for our brands,” said Greg Hopkins, President/CEO for Cleveland Golf/Srixon. “Boo has a huge fan base for a reason. He’s a great player and is as authentic as you can get.”
Boo will be donning a Cleveland® Golf logo on the front of his hat with Srixon® on the sides and will carry a Cleveland® Golf tour bag. He plans on playing Cleveland® woods, irons and wedges, a Never Compromise® putter and a Srixon® ball form the new Z-STAR™ line.
