Nike Golfers Support Lance Armstrong's Live Strong Foundation
At this week's PGA and LPGA Tour events, several golfers who have endorsement deals with Nike will use a special yellow golf bag to show support for Lance Armstrong's Live Strong Foundation and cancer awareness.
At the Traveler's Championship in Hartford, Stewart Cink, U.S. Open champion Lucas Glover, Justin Leonard, Carl Pettersson, Kris Blanks, Brendon Todd and Bob Tway will use the bag. At the Wegmans LPGA in Rochester, N.Y., Amanda Blumenherst, Paige MacKenzie and Ashley Simon will have it.
Anthony Kim and Michelle Wie are planning to wear yellow shirts during their respective events to show support.
While Nike does not plan to bring Live Strong golf bags to retail outlets, the players' bags from this week's tournaments—along with other Nike Golf Athletes' Bags—will be autographed and auctioned on Ebay. All the proceeds will go directly to the Live Strong foundation.
