Canadian golfer Brad Fritsch is a 34 year old golfer, and after a 12 year battle to finally reach the big time, just earned his PGA Tour card. He finished 18th on the Web.com Tour (essentially the AHL of golf), and the top 25 get a shot at the big time the following year.
Being Canadian, it only makes sense that he’s a hockey fan. Therefore (apparently), it also makes sense to be sponsored by a team.
It hasn’t been officially announced yet because of the lockout, but when Fritsch gets started next year on the tour, the logo of his favourite team, the Ottawa Senators, will be on his bag.
Apparently this has only happened with a pro sports organization once before (Payne Stewart and the NFL), so in this hockey/golf fan’s opinion, this is awesome news. MY WORLDS ARE COLLIDING.
