Hub’s and Hubbs to partner on and off the course
Hubbard Peanut Company announces its first ever sports marketing partnership with PGA Tour Golfer, Mark Hubbard. This sponsorship will see the nicknames of HJ Hubbard (“Hubs”) and Mark Hubbard (“Hubbs”) affiliated in a unique manner. As part of the sponsorship between Sedley, Virginia based Hubbard Peanut Company and Mark Hubbard, Mark will feature the Hub’s Peanuts logo on his apparel while competing on the PGA Tour.
“It’s a unique opportunity for a company of our size to partner with a professional athlete and we are thrilled to grow our relationship within the golf community,” said Marshall Rabil, Director of Sales & Marketing. “The fact that Hubs (HJ Hubbard’s nickname) has the opportunity to partner with Hubbs just makes sense. Our peanuts are a perfect energy-boosting snack on the course, and we are delighted that Mark agrees and is willing to be an ambassador for our brand. Our founder, and my grandmother, Dot Hubbard was a scratch golfer and I don’t remember a Sunday at her house without golf on TV. We know she would approve and is pulling for Hubbs!”
Mark Hubbard is currently ranked 43rd in the PGA Tour’s FedEx Cup Standings and 140th in Official World Golf Rankings. In 2019,he graduated from the Korn Ferry Tour where he won the LECOM Suncoast Classic and finished 9th in Official Money for the season. Since returning to the PGA Tour in 2019, Hubbard’s best finishes have been 2nd at the Houston Open, 9th at the WM Phoenix Open and two Top-15 finishes.
Mark Hubbard stated, “This partnership makes sense for so many reasons beyond the fact that we share the same name. Peanuts are something I have always eaten on the course and the Hub’s Power Packs make that even easier. Now when someone says ‘Hubbs’ I am not sure if they are referring to me or the peanuts.”
