You are one par away from your best round to date. Addressing the golf ball, you squint into the distance, aligning your shot. You bring your club back for your backswing, and the subsequent tee shot slices directly into the lake off to the right. Fighting the urge to send your golf club in after the golf ball, you stop and wonder, "What went wrong?" Before you decide a new club is the issue, you might consider your choice in golf shoes and golf hats. The benefits of good golf shoes The right golf shoe can make all the difference between the perfect shot or a trip to the bunker. The golf swing requires you to be in secure contact with the ground from the backswing to the follow through. Golf cleats grip whatever surface on which you are standing and provide the stability you need to make the best shot possible. Tall grass, mud, or sand all become easier golfing surfaces with cleats on your golf shoes. Regular tennis shoes have treads designed for flat surfaces such as asphalt. Hilly terrain or looser surfaces such as sand become more difficult to navigate with tennis shoe treads. Your next round of golf will be much more successful with golf shoes. What a golf hat can provide While most would think of this as an accessory to help men feel like their putting for the PGA tournament, a golf hat/cap/visor can provide a little extra comfort during the round. If the hat is made out of the right material, the breeze will keep your head cooler, which will help you think clearer about your next shot. On those bright sunny days that are the dreams of every golfer, a golf cap will provide the necessary shade for your eyes. Excessive squinting can lead to headaches in some and affected judgments of distance. A golf hat can help you shave a few strokes off your score. The Next Day You look into the distance at the 18th green. You have managed to repeat yesterday's success and have even improved upon it. Today, you could bogey the last hole and still have your best round ever. You align your shot, address the ball, and send it to a resting place 100 yards from the hole, perched squarely in the fairway. You smile knowing an iron shot will put you in position for a birdie. You look down at your new golf shoes and can't help but feel the difference in your swing. Walking toward your golf ball, pausing to remove your golf hat to wipe the sweat from your forehead, the approving applause of the crowd as you approach the 18th green is almost audible. 130182 101 Nike Air Jordan 9 IX Original OG,Mumbai, July 8, 2010Last month, Nielsen reported that Nike "ambushed" its way into the World Cup conversation by producing a popular soccer themed ad that spread virally across the online community. The company's efforts in the days and weeks leading up to the World Cup pushed its competitor and official tournament partner Adidas into the background of online conversations.Since the start of the opening kickoff, though, Adidas has reasserted itself at the top of World Cup brand dialogue. When looking at the top 10 official sponsors and their major competitors, a follow up study by NM Incite, a Nielsen McKinsey Company, found that in the first two weeks of the tournament Adidas overtook Nike as the top brand. Adidas buzz accounted for 25.1% share of World Cup buzz online compared to 14.4% before the event. Nike, meanwhile, dropped from 30.2% to 19.4%.Part of Adidas' increased buzz levels were due to discussions around the controversial official ball of the World Cup the Jabulani. For the week ending the 13th June, which included the first three days of the tournament, the ball accounted for 8% of all English language messages related to the World Cup."Half the game in buzz is 'fanning the flames,'" said Pete Blackshaw, executive vice president of digital strategy at Nielsen. "The Adidas football Facebook page, for instance, is now up to over a million fans and they are dropping new content several times a day, all while the average post is generating upwards of 100 comments. At the end of the day, brands need to keep the buzz ball in the air as long as possible sponsored or otherwise."Budweiser, too, overcame a pre tournament ambush from Carlsberg to assert itself as the most highly buzzed beer brand tied to the World Cup. Buzz share for the official beer of the World Cup climbed to 4.9% as it overtook Carlsberg, whose share fell to 2.4%.Other official sponsors who enjoyed a noticeable increase in World Cup buzz included Hyundai/Kia (from 2.4% to 4.7%) and McDonald's (2.8% to 4.2%). The overall share of buzz for the 10 official World Cup partners/sponsors increased from 52% to 66% since the start of the tournament."Sponsorship still matters, but it's far from a 'conversational' guarantee," added Blackshaw. "For big events like the World Cup and Olympics, you can always expect a modest 'echo effect' from any level of paid or sponsorship investment, but that's just the foot in the door. The rest really depends on variables like timing, creativity, controversy, and a combination of brand readiness and agility."The NM Incite follow up study compared the share of online buzz between World Cup sponsors and their major competitors in relation to the World Cup in the run up to the event (month long period ending June 6th) and during the first two weeks of the tournament (11th 25th June). English language World Cup related messages on blogs, message boards, groups, video and image sites including Flickr, YouTube, Facebook, and Twitter were monitored for the study.
