The United States Golf Association (USGA) has launched its new “There’s a Lot to Love About Golf” campaign, which features multiple television spots and animated digital banners that highlight golf as a game for everyone.
The six television spots and digital banners, created by DDB New York, will principally air in conjunction with the USGA’s summer schedule of televised golf championships, starting with this week’s U.S. Open Championship. In addition to 21st Century Fox’s wide national and international platforms including Fox, Fox Business, fox.com, foxsports.com, and the National Geographic Channel, the television spots will air on Golf Channel and TSN Canada.
This also represents the first time that a USGA television spot will air in Spanish (via MundoFox and Fox Deportes). The headline spot – “A Lot to Love” – debuted in early May on Fox Sports 1 during the inaugural U.S. Amateur Four-Ball Championship.
“The game of golf is really the star here,” said Sarah Hirshland, USGA senior managing director of Business Affairs. “Intended to be welcoming and inspiring, the campaign collectively shows where the USGA is devoting its resources relative to the game and its long-term health.”
Each television spot, with its corresponding digital ad unit, is themed to present several key messages and principles tied to the USGA’s mission, including:
“Golf creates so many positive experiences through its unifying qualities,” said Hirshland. “We believe it’s important to share these messages that can both inspire – and connect with – a wide range of audiences.”
