Els,Singh, and a Wraparound Tour

Vijay Singh signed a multi-year contract to endorse Hopkins Golf. Vijay will wear a Hopkins Golf logo on his visor or hat, carry a Hopkins logo on his bag, and most important, play the company's wedges.

Hopkins CEO, Greg Hopkins, is the former CEO at Cleveland Golf, Vijay played there stuff for many years.

Ernie Els meanwhile has switched from Callaway to Adams and will play all Adams stuff. I’m betting this will let him find a new putter, one he actually feels comfortable with, and back to Titleist, no more Callaway or Taylor Made balls.  

Not sure about the new wraparound tour. So what is a wraparound schedule, a schedule that begins in one year and finishes in the following year. For example, a tour season that begins in October 2013 and finishes in September 2014 is one that uses a "wraparound schedule." Which is exactly what the PGA Tour is doing beginning with its 2013-14 season.

What it really means – tournaments in November and December that are supposed to be meaningful. (But its football time and limited field tournaments are tough to watch)
