Endorsement deals have been falling off the face of the earth, but a woman golfer, who hasn't made a single cut in the four LPGA tournaments she has played in this year, recently picked up a pretty big deal.
Her name is Anna Rawson. She's a 27-year-old Australian beauty turned pro golfer and the fact that she hasn't had a single round under par in this country in 2009 hasn't deterred the folks at Go Daddy from making her their next star to join a roster that includes Danica Patrick and Amanda Beard.
"She'll get more eyeballs from her Go Daddy exposure than she would if she played a whole season on the LPGA," said her agent Anthony Rodriguez, who met Rawson at a fraternity house while the two attended USC. "There at ten times more eyeballs on those spots than there are people watching the Golf Channel. I mean, for Lorena Ochoa to get on SportsCenter she'd not only have to win a tournament. She would have a shoot a ball off a tree into the hole."
So far, Rawson has appeared on the homepage of the internet domain buying site and has worn the company's logo on her garb since March, but Barb Rechterman, executive vice president of Go Daddy, told us the company will shoot a commercial with Rawson in the next month.
"All I can tell you right now is we'll shoot it at a golf course and it will be Go Daddy-esque, meaning fun, edgy and slightly inappropriate," said Barb Rechterman, executive vice president of the company.
