Smylie Kaufman Signing with Natural Light Is All of Us
By Peter Santo
The year of funny but fitting endorsement deals in professional golf continues. First we had Andrew “Beef” Johnston signing up to sport Arby’s roast beef logos on the European Tour, and now we will see young American Smylie Kaufman sporting Natty Light.
While not considered one of the top American players right now, Kaufman made a name for himself beginning late last season when he netted his first PGA Tour victory at the Shriners in Las Vegas. He then kept up that early season form by playing his way into the final group on Sunday at The Masters.
However it during Spring Break when we found out exactly why Kaufman is the perfect golfer to sport Natty Light on Tour. He showed his lighter side while partying with Jordan Spieth, Rickie Fowler, and Justin Thomas in the Bahamas and has carried that over to the rest of the season with his hilarious presence on social media.
Another reason Kaufman is the perfect Natural Light endorser is that he is the target audience for Natural Light. He’s a 24 year old young guy who went to a huge party school in LSU and just happens to be sick at golf and play on the PGA Tour. Smylie is really just one of us at heart.
The pic says it all.
