… I am enclosing a photo (below) of JOHN DALY, as seen last weekend at the PGA Tour’s Transitions Championship event where John was using the new HOUSE OF FORGED “Tour Spec” and “Great White Shaft” standard driver shafts.

Caddie has a Ping bag, looks like Chris Dimarco maybe?

I'm not a Daly fan, but I have to admit this is a good signing for House of Forged. Love Daly or hate Daly, he attracts attention and gets TV coverage the few times a year he doesn't quit and walk off the course.

I'm still waiting to hear more about the new HoF shafts.

I'm interested to see why Daly was hitting the HOF shaft .......... HOF could be sponsoring him but that would take some serious cash to do. Could Daly be hitting it just because he likes the shaft? Possible, but big John tends to be a billboard so I would doubt it.

Sure nice to see a "component" product in the hands of a name player!

Unfortunately there won't be a lot of TV time for Daly as he usually WD's/DQ's of misses the cut. :lol:

If the goofy pants company can sponsor him, I don't think the cost of entry with Daly is all that high these days. :lol:

Maybe HOF agreed to buy some of his framed golf art and autograph stuff from his bus flea market during the Masters.

HOF was contacted by J Daly's agent to try a few of their shafts...there is NO contract. He does like their shafts very much! He was paid nothing to put the HOF shaft in play. :yahoo:

Me too, but I expect to be on staff any day now. All I have to do is find about 30mph more swing speed.

I'm betting that there has to be something on the back end if he does well with them or mentions them on TV or at his many arraignment hearings. He doesn't do anything for free, he needs endorsement dollars because he doesn't cash many checks anymore.

Not true SK. The shaft is one of the places where they do not generally get paid. Other areas are shoes, gloves, spikes, tees, grips, putters...well, you get the idea. Now if a company that makes the above and cuts a deal to build a campaign around the product using a particular player...that is different. Remember, they contacted HOF...not the other way around. Aldila, which is the #1 used shaft on the tour does not pay to play! You can bet that down the road and if JD continues to use the shaft...there will most probably be a deal that will benefit both HOF and JD.
