Charlie Saxon and adidas Golf have agreed to a multi-year partnership which will place Saxon in adidas Golf footwear, apparel and headwear through 2021. Saxon joins an impressive adidas Golf roster which includes Justin Rose, Dustin Johnson, Sergio Garcia, Jon Rahm, Joaquin Niemann, Xander Schauffele, Tyrrell Hatton and Sam Burns.
Saxon, 25 years old, graduated from University of Oklahoma in 2015 and turned professional shortly thereafter. Since 2016 Saxon has seven professional, international victories and was Rookie of the Year on PGA Tour China in 2016 after a two-win season that included seven top-10 finishes and a second place finish on the Order of Merit. In 2018, Saxon has held the top spot on PGA Tour China’s Order of Merit the entire season thanks to two victories and six top-10 finishes in the first 11 events of the year. The PGA Tour China schedule has 3 more events in the 2018 schedule. Additionally, Saxon has also competed on the China Golf Tour this year where he has won another two events and finished sixth in a co-sanctioned European Challenge Tour event.
“I am very excited to be partnering with adidas and humbled to join such an impressive roster of athletes,” Saxon remarked, ” I felt that adidas was a perfect fit for me as they are the best sports brand in the world; I train very hard off the golf course to play my best on the course and I feel fortunate to be a part of adidas Golf.”
Saxon’s play on PGA Tour China in 2018 has secured membership on the 2019 Web.com Tour. Each year, the top 25 on the Web.com Tour money list earn PGA Tour membership for the following season, which would enable Saxon to be on the PGA Tour as early as Fall 2019.
“We are delighted to welcome Charlie to the adidas Golf family. In his short time as a professional, Charlie has proven himself a winner on tours around the world and we believe that same winning pedigree will continue throughout his journey.” said Tim McNulty, Director of Global Sports Marketing for adidas Golf.
Charlie’s final three starts on the 2018 PGA Tour China schedule include events in Macau, Guangdong, and Hong Kong.
