If you love Tiger Woods and Monster Energy drinks, then this is your lucky day.
The 14-time major winner has signed an extension of his endorsement deal with the energy-drink maker, and that extension could lead to a Woods-inspired version of Monster sooner than you think.
Golfweek got the breaking news down in the Bahamas for the Hero World Challenge. Woods' long-time agent Mark Steinberg told Dan Kilbridge the two sides are discussing a potential licensing agreement to put Woods' name on a Monster flavor. However, it's going to go beyond that, Steinberg suggested.
“He’s at a stage in his life and career where he’s not doing those things without having heavy involvement,” Steinberg said.
That could mean Woods gets in the lab with his chemist goggles and lab coat and starts making some drink. I'm honestly not sure what kind of flavors Woods likes the most. However, Woods could take some pointers from New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski, who licensed out a Gronk Energy version of Monster.
Monster makes close to 40 different products, so Woods and the high-energy chemists at Monster will have to come up with something unique.
The initial deal was two years, with Woods debuting the Monster logo on his bag at the 2016 Hero World Challenge. He finished 15th that week before making just two starts before having to undergo spinal fusion surgery that kept him out until the 2017 Hero World Challenge.
