John Daly Sued Hippo Golf

MyGolfSpy has grabbed ahold of a court document where noted sizable golfer/drinker John Daly is suing the Hippo Golf Company for using his name as a trademark for a golf club they were selling without his permission.

Legalese documents (direct PDF link) are no fun to parse, so here’s the summation: Daly had an endorsement deal with Hippo Golf that they could use his name and picture in advertisements to sell golf clubs, and that was basically the extent of the agreement. There was no deal in place for them to use his trademarked signature as a golf club, which Hippo Golf sold in 2002.

Since 2002, Daly has won but a single PGA event (The 2004 Buick Open) and has five PGA wins in his entire career. He’s currently ranked 585th in the world, yet as the lawsuit accurately states, “Daly has been and remains one of the most popular players on the PGA Tour.”

It sounds like he actually has a case here. Problem is, if these court proceedings resemble most of Daly’s golf tournaments, Daly might have an impressive showing at the arraignment but then once they start selecting the jury, he’ll withdraw.

My name is Adam Beach. This place, this site, it’s more than just a business to me, it truly is an expression of who I am and what I believe in, down to my core. I feel the work I do is a reflection of who I am and the idea behind the work I do is more important than the work itself. You see, I don’t actually see myself in the golf business at all, I am in the business of caring. I am a guy who wakes up with one goal: do the right thing.
