Vijay Singh Inks Multiyear Deal With Hopkins Golf; Rose Signs Pair Of Extensions
Hopkins Golf on Friday announced that golfer Vijay Singh "has signed a multi-year endorsement contract" with the company that will see him "wear a Hopkins Golf logo on his visor or hat, carry a Hopkins Golf staff bag and play the company's wedges," according to GOLFCHANNEL.com. The move to Hopkins "should not come as a total surprise since the company's CEO, Greg Hopkins, was formerly the CEO of Cleveland Golf, whose equipment Singh used in winning" both the '00 Masters and '04 PGA Championship (GOLFCHANNEL.com, 1/3). Several other golfers have also announced new endorsement deals. Callaway has signed both Matteo Manassero and Henrik Stenson, while Justin Rose on Friday announced via Twitter that he has signed five-year sponsorship extensions with TaylorMade and Ashworth (THE DAILY).
