Italian teenager Matteo Manassero made his professional debut at last week’s BMW Italian Open on the PGA European Tour as FootJoy's newest brand ambassador. Matteo turned professional earlier last week after a brief but decorated amateur career that included a win at last year’s British Amateur Championship as well as low amateur honors at the 2009 Open Championship and 2010 Masters Tournament. Having just recently celebrated his 17th birthday, Matteo established himself as the youngest player to record a victory at the British Amateur and to compete and make the 36-hole cut at the Masters.
In addition to a full bag of Titleist equipment, Matteo will be wearing FJ ICON golf shoes and a StaSof glove.
Congrats to FJ! Another young talent to grow with!! Saw him @ Augusta and he is very talented
Nice addition to the FJ/Titleist stable -- they just keep getting younger, don't they? He has acquitted himself well in tour events as an amateur.
Congrats to FJ for signing another young player. Also congrats to Matteo and hope he and FJ have many victories in the future.
THE YOUNG MAN HAS SOME FUTURE.
CONGRATS TO HIM AND TO FOOTJOY.
There it is. Watch out for this guy. I posted a blurb on M.M. in the Peter Uhlein string under General. Nice work Titleist / FJ.
This guy is gonna do work. Give him about a year.
I welcome this young golfer to a premier company and support staff. His credentials are impressive and I wish him well.
FJ's latest star of the future showed the world they made the right choice in Matteo. Great finish in Hong Kong.
Has proved to be a great signing.
