Just want to let you guys know about this cool contest from Mizuno called Play Famously This is an opportunity to be treated like a pro as an exclusive member of “Team JPX.”
Play Famously will champion the cause and determination of the “everyman” golfer using Mizuno’s JPX-825 line of game-improvement irons. Pittsburgh, Penn. native Lee Baughman was selected as the first of a 12-member team of Mizuno “game-improvement professionals.”
Baughman was selected as the face of Team JPX through a separate “casting call.” As the official spokesman for Team JPX, Baughman participated in his first “tour” experience in South Florida with fellow Mizuno professional staff members Luke Donald, Charles Howell III, Jonathan Byrd and Stacy Lewis.
“It’s pretty awesome that Mizuno would give a national spotlight to a bunch of everyday amateurs and let us experience what it’s like to be treated like a pro,” said Baughman. “I never thought in a million years I’d be hitting range balls with one of the best players in the world Luke Donald, but Mizuno made that possible with a campaign for the ‘everyman,’ like me.”
The remaining 11 members of Team JPX will be selected through an online contest at www.playfamously.com. where golfers are encouraged to try the new JPX-825 irons at a participating retailer, and provide their feedback on the high performance game-improvement irons through a brief essay, photos and/or videos demonstrating their passion for the game and why they deserve to be on Team JPX. Winners receive a complete JPX-825 golf package including custom fit JPX-825 irons, JPX-825 woods, JPX wedges, a Mizuno staff bag personalized with their name, a season’s worth of Mizuno apparel and accessories and customized instruction from Team JPX’s “Swing Coach” and PGA Master Teacher, Dr. Gary Wiren. The Team JPX season will culminate with the ultimate tour experience at the JPX Invitational, the first “tour level” event for amateurs at the home of Mizuno’s R&D Center, the Country Club of the South in Atlanta.
