Tim Tebow Foundation Golf Classic a Smashing Success

The sun was shining, golf balls were flying and Jockey undies were spread about. For the second year, Jockey was an elite sponsor of the Tim Tebow Foundation Celebrity Golf Classic. The event took place Saturday, April 14 at the world-famous TPC Sawgrass course in Ponte Vedra, FL.

As part of the Tim Tebow Foundation’s mission, the Celebrity Golf Classic raises funds to bring faith, hope and love to those needing a brighter day in their darkest hours of need. This was most definitely a beautiful event that involved wonderful people all for a great cause.

At the crack of dawn, golfers hit the range to brush up on their game and exchange laughs. Thanks to the awesome location of our Jockey tent, we caught exclusive video of Masters Champion Bubba Watson and Jockey spokesman Tim Tebow teeing off. We can’t fully confirm, but we’re willing to wager a few pair of undies they hit their golf balls into another area code. Phew!

To provide some on-course action, we sweetened up one hole by coining it the “Staycool under pressure” hole. If hitting in front of tons of people wasn’t nerve racking enough, we tested golfers by giving them a chance to move their balls if they hit targets randomly placed in the fairway – with a football. OK, we might have favored our favorite quarterback a little! BUT, there was one hook: At least two of the four golfers in the group had to hit the target for the group to advance their golf balls.

No great Jockey event goes without our favorite little friend, Mini Brief. As always, he managed to steal the show. Check out Mini Brief and the rest of our fun pictures from the Tebow Celebrity Golf Classic below.

FORE! Jockey employees gear up for Tim Tebow’s celebrity golf classic

In spirit of the upcoming Tim Tebow Foundation Celebrity Golf Classic, we decided it was only fitting to have a miniature golf contest around the office. For some, it was a chance to show off, and for others, well, they gave it their best shot.

To make things interesting, we sprinkled in our own obstacles – office style. In place of spinning windmills and waterfalls, we dodged and weaved around desks and chair legs. If anyone tells you it’s tough to read the break on a golf course green, try making sense of it on carpet.

With frequent “ooo’s and ahh’s” roaring from nearby cubicles, we only had one golfer sink both putts. In a calm, cool and collected manner, Keven from our marketing research team put his putts right on the money. Check out his form! As for the rest of us, we’ll stick to making underpants.

For the second straight year, Jockey is an elite sponsor of Tim Tebow’s celebrity golf classic, which takes place at the world-famous TPC Sawgrass Stadium Course in Ponte Vedra, FL. The event unfolds April 14 and is highlighted with golfers paired with celebrities. The star-studded lineup includes: Rascal Flatts, Bubba Watson, Lindsey Vonn, Gary Sheffield, Fred Durst, Jordin Sparks, and more.

To make sure you don’t miss a thing, we’ll be tweeting from our @Jockey Twitter handle at the event. Stay tuned! Plus, check back next week for our blog post. We’ll share our favorite pictures from the event and some behind-the-scenes action.

See ya’ on Twitter.
