HOG and Golf Pride “First Major” Giveaway

I play Golf Pride grips. 80% of the PGA TOUR follows my lead, despite not getting paid by Golf Pride. That’s the sign of a really great product.  I love the Align technology for my full swing clubs, and for my putter I game the TOUR SNSR.

I haven’t been one for doing a lot of contests and giveaways in the past, but I thought I’d change that up a bit and do a giveaway in honor of the 2019 Masters Tournament.  I worked out a gift package with Golf Pride featuring 13 Limited Edition “First Major” MCC ALIGN Grips and the t-shirt pictured below.

The grips and shirt in this package are not available for sale, anywhere. Only a few select Tour players have them, and of course the soon-to-be winner of the 2019 HOG/Golf Pride “First Major” contest.


I can’t just give these incredible grips and t-shirt away to anyone. I need to make the winner work for it. Here’s how to win them:

  1. On Twitter, make sure you follow @HOGGOLFBLOG and @golfpridegrips
  2. Retweet any HOG “First Major” contest tweet with your pick for the Masters winner. The player must be a Golf Pride user.

The winner will be announced the day after the Masters Tournament concludes.  In the event of a tie, the winner will be chosen at random.

Happy tweeting and GOOD LUCK!

Facebook Contest: Post your best golf photo! FOUR winners to receive golf polos from Energy Athletic

I’ll admit that I’m not a fan of golf sites whose only attraction for members/readers is giving away free golf gear.  We know who they are.  I haven’t done many contests over the the last 8+ years because I believe that great content will win over readers and I stand behind that.  I’ve turned down many offers to give away stuff.  Apparel company Energy Athletic approached me with an offer of giving away some of their cool golf polos and I initially said no.  But they were persistent.  We discussed ways of doing a contest which would be fun and different than those other sites.  I like the point which came up in our talks which was, “why not reward HOG fans for being HOG fans?”

Facebook Photo Contest

I’m going to award FOUR Energy Athletic shirts to the four best photos submitted to the Hooked On Golf Blog Facebook page.  You’ll have to “like” the page of course, then you can post an image to the HOG timeline.  We are looking for “energetic” golf photos, to go with the Energy Athletic theme.  I’m anxious to see what kind of fun pics we see, and hope that we get a good number of submissions.  Post a photo and have a great shot at a free shirt, which is charged with negative ions by the way. See the review link below. (more…)
