The REAL Headline Coming Out of Hazeltine

Now that the 2009 Major season is officially over, lets do a recap. We saw Angel Cabrera win the Masters after a three-way sudden-death playoff. Two months later Lucas Glover won the US Open at Bethpage thwarting Phil Mickelson’s attempt at a long awaited Major win. You’d had to have been living under a rock not to have heard about the 59-year old Tom Watson’s run at the British Open and eventual fall to the Twitter friendly, Stuart Cink (Did I mention that Tiger missed the cut?). Then there was this past weekend’s PGA Championship where ESPN headlines read “Yang Slays Tiger, Stuns World With Victory.”

We at PUMA were a little surprised when we read this headline. I mean, is it such a big deal that the undisputed best golfer in the world heading into Sunday with a two stroke lead lost to the 110th ranked, 37-year old South Korean, Y.E. Yang? Really, how hard could it have been?

Clearly the biggest story coming out of last weekend at Hazeltine had nothing to do with the final pairing between Yang and Tiger. The leading headline of every sports section across America clearly should have read, “PUMA Introduces Fall 2009 Apparel, Golfers Look Really Really Good”

Geoff Ogilvy and Soren Kjeldsen debuted the Fall 2009 PUMA Golf collection over the weekend proving that not every PGA golfer has to wear pants baggier than MC Hammer’s and shirts the color of my grandmother’s sofa.

Hopefully ESPN will get it right next time…
