Looks like the market / new companies are bidding up the sponsorship packages for PGA players.
It seems as though with the uptick in the economy that many of the companies trying to capture a portion of the golfing apparel or footwear market are offering significantly higher compensation packages to PGA Players.
I agree sponsorships and their prices are rising quickly... Better economy and more job growth is helping plus the tour is doing a great job of marketing themselves!
The Players deserve it.
It's a pretty good gig for them.
Yep, which people finally having some discretionary income again (it's still not great everywhere though) the Sponsors are realizing they need to start worrying about the golfers again. Good for the pros :)
