Social Advertising: Pro Golfers Pitching Products

As social media grows, so does the marketing that takes place on it. Celebrities frequently get paid to advertise products, and pro golfers are no different.

Here’s a look at some recent social media posts from golfers pitching products.

Brooke M. Henderson seems to be loving her new Android Wear watch. While someone snaps a pic.

Dustin Johnson has teamed up with the growing sports drink company, Body Armor. Seems to be working after winning the U.S. Open and WGC Bridgestone.

Rickie Fowler is only getting behind the wheel of Mercedes-Benz from now on. Check out the link to video ad.

Zach Johnson gives a shout out to Transamerica.

Justin Thomas seems stoked about his new apparel from Ralph Lauren.

Natalie Gulbis with two prominently placed logos: Adidas and Lexus.

Players can also be sneaky in their plugs for products. Like this one from Brad Faxon for the famous O’Henry’s Donuts. Free donuts and coffee for the FOX broadcast team during U.S. Women’s Open week?
