I suspect that most of the negativity about this sponsorship is that 5 hour Energy seems like a sham - though it is just basic ingredients that don't pose any more of a health hazzard than energy drinks.

Does the PGA have any sponsorship guidelines?

Is it possibble that someone could be sponsored by Haamas or a Neo-Nazi organization?

I accidentally drank two one morning because I forgot I drank one... I was so tired that i forgot I drank the 1st so I drank the 2nd....and let me tell you, it wasn't like drinking two redbulls or a little too much coffee..  I seriously felt like my heart was going to explode or have a complete panic attack.  It was awful!!

Maybe Viagra could sponsor a senior tour guy...obviously he would need to be a big hitter with stiff shafts, not a Pavin type...which reminds me of the time I tried Viagra and it accidentally got stuck in my throat..I had a stiff neck for hours!

How come Tiger gets a pass on Fuse Science, which is basically 5 Hour Energy plus lots of pseudo-scientific bullshit?

Also, Perky Jerky.

Viagra missed their best marketing opportunity ever when they were involved with NASCAR and didn't have Dick Trickle drive their car. [quote name="Stretch" url="/t/56511/jim-furyks-new-sponsor-5-hour-energy/54#post_692189"]

I think Avodart would have been a better marketing opportunity for Dick Trickle.  "I told my doctor I have a going problem, he said I have a growing problem"

Just call me FATHER Mike, Old fashoned. I have no hate for anyone. I just don't like to see the golfers of today take on the look of a NASCAR driving suit with logos on every square inch of fabric.

I logo or 2 on a shirt very tastefully done is fine Jims latest apparell with the 5 hour energy logo plastered al over his hat and shirt are the closest I have ever seen to NASCAR. some highlight film 20 or 30 years from now will take on a very strange look. Look at the way Woods dresses, TW on his hat a swoosh here and there and thats it. He will not have to look at clip 25 years from now and explain  what is that ad on your hat for??? and bless you my son....

All of the Nike staff players dress very plainly; it's a requirement when signing with that team. Even having additional logos on the bag requires advance permission (such as when Tiger had AT&T; or Anthony Kim with RBC).

And since when has caffeine been illegal?

Guess that means they shouldn't promote soft drinks or coffee?

ConsumerLabs testing showed they have about 200mg of caffeine, about the same as 2 cups of coffee.   You want to outlaw contestants having coffee with their breakfast too?

If he could knock a few minutes per hole off his putting routine, the 5-hour version might be enough.

Speaking of taking forever on a read... Why doesn't the PGA institute a shot clock like in the Basketball/Football?  Once it is their turn, they have like 60 seconds to read the putt and make the stroke.  It is awful how long some of these guys (Furyk included) take to read a damn putt.  Like Stricker on 18... Today Junior!!

The painful part about Stricker's was how badly he missed his putt after all of that.  I mean, he was, what, 8 feet left of the hole?

Yes.  And 8ft is being generous.  You'd think they'd rolled the rock on that green many times.  I can't believe he misread that putt as bad as he did.

    • Good for Bubba to speak out about his problems, and it's even better that he's found his own way of dealing with his anxiety.  What struck me as somewhat odd is that there's not much mention of any sort of professional therapy.  From my own experience, I've found it quite helpful, though damn expensive.
