RANCHO CUCAMONGA, CA – Nexbelt PGA TOUR Ambassador, Marc Leishman, stole the show when he walked on to the tee box for the third round of the 2021 Zurich Classic of New Orleans wearing a “mullet wig” he purchased for $18 on Amazon with “The Mullet Song” by Jay Powell echoing in the background.
“I was thinking about hitting the first tee shot with it on,” said Leishman, “but it was way too windy. There was no way I could have done it.”
Headlines surrounding the mullet had already been made earlier in the week when Leishman gave his playing partner, Cameron Smith, a trim on Wednesday prior to the start of the tournament. Smith, who first gained attention for his mullet/mustache combo at the Sony Open in Hawaii, said he wanted to “clean up the sides” and was heading out for a haircut when Leishman said not to bother.
“I can do it, I cut my boys’ hair at home,” said Leishman. “So, I put faith in him, and I think he did a pretty good job,” said Smith.
“Got a few laughs on the first tee and lightened the mood,” commented Leishman, “I guess (it) helped our start.”
It sure did, as fellow Aussies Leishman and Smith went on beat South Africans Louis Oosthuizen and Charl Schwartzel in a playoff on Sunday to win the Zurich Classic at TPC Louisiana in Avondale.
Leishman wears the patented Fast Eddie X-Factor Golf Series belt on Tour. The Fast Eddie is basically a “Swiss Army Knife” for golfers with a hidden ball marker and divot tool that doubles as a bottle opener.
This is the sixth PGA TOUR victory of Leishman’s career and he’s won over $32.4 million dollars since he joined the PGA TOUR in 2009. He’s currently ranked 29th in the FedEx Cup Standings and 37th in the Official World Golf Rankings.
With over 40 players now wearing Nexbelt on the Professional Golf Tours, it’s considered “The Fastest Growing Belt in Golf”. Its team of PGA TOUR Staff Professionals for 2021 includes Jim Furyk, Kevin Na, Marc Leishman and many others.

Company Founders, Tom Hunsucker, and Eddie and Francis Rowland started Nexbelt in 2010 with a vision to reinvent the way Americans buy, sell and wear their belts. Tired of the old outdated pin/buckle system, they set their sights on creating a belt that would be both adjustable and highly fashionable at the same time. Out of this passion, Nexbelt, “The Belt With No Holes” was born.
