The Best Golf Commercials of the Year?
By Torleif Sorenson on 10/18/13
Golf blogger and attorney John Iaciofano (*There* is a great Swedish name!) has weighed in with what *he* thought were the ten best golf commercials of 2013.
In your humble correspondent's opinion, neither of the two MasterCard commercials were as remotely funny as any of Rickie Fowler's four "Dick Fowler, P.I." commercials for Farmers Insurance: Backswing Sting, Divot Dummy, Driver vs. Driver, and Love Trap. Fowler's spot for ESPN (#5 on the list below) was a keeper, too.
At least Iaciofano was correct with the best one, at the end.
10: Bridgestone "Pro Shop / Assistant Manager"
9 and 8: MasterCard "Feeling like a pro"
7: FootJoy "The Mark of a Player"
6: PGA Tour "Born For This"
5: ESPN "Rickie Fowler - SportsCenter"
4: Nike "No Cup is Safe"
3: EA Sports "The Rumble"
2: Avis "The Professionals"
1: Dick's Sporting Goods "Swing Your Swing"

I wonder if the Farmer's Insurance spots were not included because they did not air on TV.
The "Swing Your Swing" is one of my favorite commercials of all time! It is an instant classic.
Swing Your Swing

#1 is #1.
The King is king.
6 and 7 are very dull indeed...

The Swing your Swing is the best...and some of the best advice you can get.
