My new favorite golfer is Jhonny Vegas. Yes, that's his real name. His full name is Jhonattan Vegas, he's Venezuelan and just starting out on the PGA Tour. He's already won 2 tournaments in his short career but with a name like that- he should be a household brand. I believe he's already with Nike (I've seen it on his hats) but Nike has got to kick it into overdrive with this guy. The name is just too good.
I did this project on my own, as a labor of love, may be somebody in Oregon will see it and give me a call. Jhonny Vegas needs his own line, his own brand. I'm not saying he'll ever reach Jordan, LeBron or Tiger levels of marketing, but, with his name, he should have a much higher profile.
