Staying Power: Kuchar & G-Mac's contracts

October 05, 2013

This is the time of year when people start speculating about which players with expiring contracts will be moving on to new equipment companies. Recently, two of the more attractive potential "free agents" -- Matt Kuchar and Graeme McDowell -- re-upped with their current manufacturers. Kuchar, who has been with Bridgestone since 2001, signed a four-year extension and will continue to play its ball, driver, irons and wedges. McDowell, meanwhile, signed a multiyear deal and will play a Srixon ball and irons, wear a Srixon hat, and have the company's staff bag. He also will play sister company Cleveland Golf's driver and wedges. G-Mac first joined Srixon in 2011.
