Three-time major winner Jordan Spieth has signed a multi-year deal to join FanDuel Group team as part of an exclusive partnership.
Spieth is linking up with America’s number one sportsbook and daily fantasy sports site FanDuel, which is also an official sports betting partner of the PGA Tour.
Spieth will star in national television commercials and be the face of FanDuel’s golf products, as well as working on content for social media and responsible gaming initiatives.
“As the world of legal sports betting grows rapidly in the U.S, I’m incredibly excited about what’s happening in the space and the potential it has to bring new fans to the sport of golf,” said Spieth.
“As the PGA Tour and others in the golf world have strongly embraced legalised sports gaming, I look forward to working with FanDuel to find unique ways to engage the fast-growing fanbase.”
Spieth joins influencers like Pat McAfee in becoming one of the faces of FanDuel.
As part of the partnership, FanDuel will support the Jordan Spieth Family Foundation to continue its work in the community.
“Golf is an incredibly popular sport on the FanDuel platform and we are always looking for new ways to engage the growing golf fanbase and community,” said Mike Raffensperger, Chief Marketing Officer of FanDuel Group.
“As one of the most universally admired golfers at the top of his game, Jordan Spieth is a perfect fit for our first official golf partner and the face of golf at FanDuel.”
