Wanna Play Golf with Justin? Enter to Win!
Thanks to JT4B for this info!
First, visit Callaway Golf’s FaceBook Page for details on how to enter. You’ll be entering to win a custom set of clubs and a golf date with Justin Timberlake at Mirimichi.
Callaway Golf is offering 2 golf fanatics the chance to tee off with pop superstar Justin Timberlake through a contest on its Facebook Page.
Timberlake, who has been a Callaway staff professional since 2008, will meet the grand prize winner of the contest and their guest, who will be treated to a round of golf at Mirimichi, Timberlake’s course in Millington, Tenn. The winner and their guest will also hit golf balls with Timberlake and enjoy a custom fitting for a full set of premium Callaway clubs.
The contest is called “Tee Off with Diablo Octane and Justin Timberlake” and it has been launched to celebrate the strong relationships that develop on the golf course in the lead-up to Father’s Day. Timberlake was introduced to the sport by his dad, Paul Harless, on the Mirimichi course that they now own. Playing the game together and spending time with each other on the golf course has strengthened the bond between them.
With that in mind, Callaway’s contest encourages you to share a story that explains how golf has brought you closer to someone in your life. You will need to submit your story (which must be no longer than 100 words) by Jun. 19 — which is Father’s Day in the U.S – and you can include a photo with your contest entry.
Callaway will announce 25 finalists, who will then face a popular vote on Facebook that will determine the winner.
All of the finalists will receive a Callaway Diablo Octane Driver, which is the first golf club made with a lightweight material called Forged Composite, that Callaway developed with Lamborghini.
Timberlake said he was happy to team up with Callaway for a contest that highlights the role golf plays in bringing people together:
I’m excited to team up with Callaway and celebrate the unique way that golf brings people together With Father’s Day approaching, there are a lot of golfers like me thinking about their dads and those who first taught them how to play. It will be fun to select a winner, and for those who win the Diablo Octane Driver, that club has been in my bag for a while now and packs a serious punch.
This contest is a slightly different spin on the old “we have a new product to promote so let’s offer people the chance to meet a celebrity” trick. By emphasizing the emotional bonds forged on the golf course and placing focus on fathers introducing their kids to the game, Callaway should be able to create some extra buzz around this contest.
