SOMETIMES THIS BIG WORLD CAN GET US OH SO CONFUSED: SPORTS BUSINESS DAILY reports golfer Jim Furyk was on CNBC’s “Squawk Box” today to promote safe driving over the holidays on behalf of … *long pause* … Johnny Walker whiskey.
And he’s also got another charity promotion for the booze brand: “We’ve started a program where Johnnie Walker and I are going to donate a minimum of $25,000 to R.A.D.D. (Recording Artists, Actors & Athletes Against Drunk Driving). … If I can hit more than 81% of the fairways this year, which is the tour record, Johnnie Walker and I are going to donate $1[M] to that organization.”
We get it, driving accuracy. HAR-HAR. Yeah, the sponsor link is a little questionable, but you have to understand, Mr. Furyk really needs the money.
