Jim Furyk signs sponsorship deal

Constellation Energy has made an announcement to the local media on Tuesday that it has come to an agreement over a three year sponsorship deal with American golfer Jim Furyk, a former champion at the US Open and the golfer has put pen to paper to the new deal after agreeing the terms. This new deal will see Furyk wear the logo of Constellation Energy on his sleeves during any and every golf tournament he takes part in around the world. Moreover, he will also be the face of the company and will make appearances in the promotional materials of the company as well as the company events from now to the end of 2015.

However, the overall terms of the deal were not given in detail either by the company or by the representatives of the golfer who brokered the deal for the 42 year old. Constellation Energy is based in Baltimore, United States of America and is a wholly owned subsidiary group of the Exelon Corp. which is based in Chicago, Illinois. The deal that they have signed with Jim Furyk is ground breaking without a doubt and with the 42 year old being one of the most well known golfers on the circuit, a partnership with him will also earn them a lot of fame, if that is what they are looking for.

Jim Furyk won his first and so far, only major title when he won the US Open back in 2003, one of the four major championships in golf and was named as PGA Tour Player of the Year as well as the PGA Player of the Year in2010.

Constellation Energy also serves as the title sponsors of the PGA Senior Players’ Championship which will be held at the Fox Chapel Golf Course in 2013 and 2014.


Steve Stricker Drops Hint

While playing at Kapalua, Steve Stricker has told the reports that he would probably not come back the rest of the year, or in other words, a semi-retirement. He has decided to participate only in the majors and World Golf Championships being held at America. He is an earner of $25 million in PGA Tour and he has earned them all in six-year-long professional career. After making a comeback in the course really after he was shunted to the list of probable players who needed to make a comeback for consecutively two years, he does not wish to put any more focus on the golf all his life. As evident from his statements, he wants to give his family more time, fetching his kids to school and other things.

When already in a rank as number 2 according to the official world golf rankings, Steve Stricker had been thinking of signing off for good. But things were not easy back then, now that he has buckled up to face his decision with full determination, he is quite light-weighed right now. It is not that this decision has taken shape due to drought in his victory throughout his career, he had loads of win and won the Tournament of Champions only last year that marked the 12th win in his professional career, it is just that he never wanted to be a golf devotee.

Steve Stricker will not be facing the top four players at Kapalua namely Rory McIlroy, Tiger Woods, Luke Donald and Justin Rose because they are not attending the same. After the Kapalua, he will be engaging himself in a bit of philanthropy with American Family Insurance aimed at lending out a helping hand to the adolescents. He will donate the award money received from Payne Stewart Award and playing on the Ryder Cup team.
