Former Pro Baseball All-Star John Kruk to Help Lucky Winner Deal With the
CARLSBAD, CALIF., June 1 /CNW/ - Top-Flite announced today the start of
an online promotion that will provide one lucky winner with the chance to sink
a putt worth $1 million. Since the introduction of their new D2 golf ball
earlier this year, Top-Flite has been waging a war against "wuss golf" and
calling everyone who lays-up or plays it safe. From June 1 through July 15,
consumers can visit www.theballstogoforit.com and/or www.youvsvegas.com to try
and earn their shot at the $1 million putt.
The putt itself will take place at the Treasure Island Hotel and Casino
in Las Vegas. Since a putt for $1 million doesn't pack enough pressure for the
average D2 golfer, Top-Flite has upped the ante by adding every distraction
Las Vegas has to offer during the actual putt -- including show girls, circus
performers, magicians and, of course, a rowdy cast of Pirates and Sirens from
On-site to coach the lucky winner through all the pressure and
distractions will be former Pro Baseball All-Star and clutch performer, John
Kruk. A past star on one of baseball's most hard-nosed teams, Kruk will be
able to offer the winner tips on how to deal with rowdy fans and focus on the
task at hand.
"This promotion fits the personality of the D2 golfer perfectly," said
Paul English, Top-Flite Brand Manager. "The Top-Flite D2 golfer is the guy
everyone wants in their foursome, the guy who won't, under any circumstances
lay-up or play it safe. The person who wins the opportunity to putt for $1
million will have bragging rights for the rest of their life!"
The new D2 golf ball lets golfers attack the fairways and seize the
greens. The D2 is the longest and softest ball in the Top-Flite arsenal
featuring the unique proprietary DimpleinDimple(TM) Aerodynamic pattern. By
reducing drag and improving lift, these golf balls maximize control and
distance for a wide range of swing speeds.
