If you’re a golf fan, you know we’re smack dab in the middle of the U.S Open happening this weekend in San Francisco. And because we know that some of you are in the business of promoting sports, specifically golf gear on eBay, we thought you’d like to hear our exciting announcement about Bubba Watson.
For the first time ever eBay is teaming up with a professional golfer on the PGA tour. eBay will introduce exclusive auction events for charities personally selected by Bubba Watson. Bubba is a loyal eBay user who sold several cars on eBay and has bought everything from vintage baby toys to Halloween costumes.
“I am extremely proud to partner up with eBay. I feel we have the same values and I can’t wait to use eBay’s platform to generate more buzz around my own charity efforts. Giving back to the local communities is close to my heart and with the help of eBay I feel I can step up my efforts and more efficiently reach more people.”
About Bubba Watson
Bubba Watson is the current Masters champ - becoming a folk hero of sorts when he hit an incredible recovery shot out of the pine needles to win the green jacket two months ago. Bubba is currently ranked #5 in the world and has won 4 of his last 41 PGA Tour tournaments - including two runner up finishes (the PGA championship 2010 and the WGC-Cadillac championship 2012). Bubba is the longest driver on the tour and uses a pink PING G20 Driver to raise awareness and raise money for a variety of charities. Bubba’s own charity, named “Bubba and Friends Drive to a Million”, is aiming to raise a million dollars and awareness for a variety of charities.
Celebrity + Golf + Great Cause = Excellent Promotion Opportunity
For those publishers in the sports space we hope you’ll take the opportunity to leverage this exciting celebrity partnership to help drive revenue to your business. You can check out Bubba’s branded eBay page HERE.
