One of these days, a golf company is going to pay for its promotions. You can only taunt the golf gods so many times before the golf gods decide to have the last laugh.
For example, last year, Golfsmith offered a full cash reimbursement on TaylorMade driver purchases if Sergio Garcia won the Masters. Sure, Garcia was a longshot. Then again, so was Angel Cabrera, right?
Now, adidas Golf is getting into the act by offering you a free pair of adidas Powerband 3.0 golf shoes if Kenny Perry or Pat Perez aces the 16th hole on any of the four tournament days at the Waste Management Phoenix Open. The promotion is open to the first 10,000 people who register here starting Monday (the link will be live on Monday).
The folks at adidas Golf revealed the Powerband shoe promotion to us after reading yesterday’s adidas Tour 360 shoe review.
So what are the chances of winning a new pair of adidas Powerband 3.0 shoes? Pretty slim. Then again, did you hear about the guy who recently hit a hole in one to win a million dollars? Or the guy who nailed a half-court shot while blindfolded to win tickets to the Final Four?
The golf gods probably did, and who knows, maybe they’re ready for another good chuckle, too.
