Tracy rewards BRANDT iHammer after sponsorship extended through 2017 season
Springfield, Illinois (February 12, 2017) – BRANDT iHammer has extended its sponsorship of golfer Ethan Tracy for the 2017 season. And the young golfer has immediately started paying dividends by winning the third Web.com event of the season in dramatic fashion.
Trailing the leader by two strokes on the 18th tee of the penultimate round in the Club Colombia Championship by Servientrega, Tracy holed out from 101 yards for eagle to enter a playoff with Roberto Diaz at 13-under-par.
Of his 101 yard hole-in, Tracy was his usual modest self. “I tried to land it about five yards short, which it looked like it did, but I didn’t really know where it was,” said Tracy. “It was right in line with the pin the whole way. It took a couple hops, checked up, and trickled in.”
It only took Tracy two playoff holes to claim his inaugural Web.com victory.
BRANDT iHammer will be with Tracy throughout the 2017 season. The BRANDT iHammer logo will adorn Tracy’s shirt and his bag for all 2017 tournaments, including the Lincoln Land Charity Championship in Springfield, IL.
“I knew Ethan had the skill, fortitude and drive to win on the Web.com tour but I didn’t expect it so quickly,” said Mike McBride, President of BRANDT iHammer. “The young man is a talented golfer and a great ambassador for our brand. I’m just so proud of him for this victory. We are looking forward to our mutual continued success.”
