WORLD number one Dustin Johnson has signed an extension to his endorsement contract with TaylorMade, according to the company, and has been joined by Englishman Tommy Fleetwood.
Johnson, who played in the Sentry Tournament of Champions in Hawaii earlier this month, won the Travelers Championship, the Northern Trust and the Tour Championship last season before clinching the US Masters in November.
While the financial details of the agreement were not released, a photo of Johnson’s bag showed that he already has products that are anticipated to be released by TaylorMade, a SIM2 driver and a SIM2 Max 3-wood.
There is far more to Fleetwood than his flowing locks. The four-time European Tour winner is one of the game’s premier ball strikers and a fearless competitor who rises to the occasion in the biggest events.
As a company built around product innovation, technology and authentic golfer relationships, TaylorMade has attracted some of the best and most magnetic players in the world. Fleetwood adds to that magnetism, strengthening one of the strongest lineups in all of professional golf.
For the last several years, it seems you couldn’t have a Major championship leaderboard without his name on the first page.
The 30-year-old turned professional in 2010 and over the course of his career has amassed three top-5 finishes in Major championships and six top 20s – including a runner-up at the 2018 US Open at Shinnecock where he shot a final-round 63, matching the lowest round in US Open history (at the time).
On the international stage, he is widely known for his unforgettable Ryder Cup heroics. Fleetwood delivered a dominant performance in the last Ryder Cup, going undefeated in his Paris matches and spurring the Euros to a 17 ½-10 ½ victory.
