Team TravisMathew getting ready to tee off at the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am.
Today starts the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am. This year Team TravisMathew will be well represented with James Hahn, Matt Jones, John Mallinger, Chris Kirk, Charley Hoffman and Max Homa all in the tournament, as well as TMCA brand ambassadors James Blake and Andy Roddick. (Stay tuned for Andy Roddick, Chris Kirk, John Mallinger, and James Blake to all be teeing it up together on Saturday at Pebble.)
We phoned James Blake who was already at the AT&T sponsored event but we were unable to connect with him due to poor cell phone reception.
The 2014 PGA Tour Season is underway, and many of our players are debuting this week at the Humana Challenge in La Quinta : Matt Jones, Charley Hoffman, John Mallinger and James Hahn. Below are some other highlights from the team thus far in the 2013-2014 PGA Tour Season.
Chris is proving that 2014 is going to be his year. Already Kirk has finished Top 25 4 out of 5 tournaments in which he has competed, including his win at the McGladrey Classic and his Second Place finish at the Sony Open in Hawaii. Now, we don’t want to steal all of Chris’ credit but ever since Blackout Friday was launched Chris has finished the round in the lead.
We are excited to welcome our first major International player to the team. Originally from Sydney Australia, Matt is a perfect fit for the laid back lifestyle that TM represents. We are extremely excited to have him as part of the TravisMathew Family!
The Asian Brad Pitt can add another accomplishment to his resume; Hahn made an Albatross on the ninth hole at the Sony Open in Hawaii. When asked how he felt James simply replied, “Been there, done that.” James of course referring to this being his second Albatross of his career.
We are looking forward to watching the former world #1 ranked amateur Patrick Cantlay bring his no nonsense game and style to the PGA Tour in 2014.
With a stellar finish at the 2013 AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am, TravisMathew Chris Kirk is off to a great start in 2013. Excited to see what is in store!
We had a nice surprise this morning when Chris Kirk stopped by to check out the new office. Just off a great run at the ATTProAm, Chris needed some fresh threads for the Northern Trust Open this weekend in L.A. We sat Chris down to pick his brain for a little bit and learn more about his style and his plans for this year. Just the usual shenanigans going on here at TravisMathew. We wanted to see if Chris could throw a football from one end of our court into the basket on the other side. Chris has a pretty good arm on him. Watch out Kaepernick!

Chris Kirk, aka “The All-American”, has been a staple of the TravisMathew brand and enters the 2013 season at an all-time high.
Entering his 3rd season on the PGA Tour, Kirk already has one win, eight top 10s and fourteen top 25s. Capping off the 2012 season with a solid run in the FedEx Cup playoffs, Kirk looks to ride that momentum into a strong start in 2013.
Growing up in Atlanta and attending the University of Georgia, Kirk is the resident TravisMathew “All-American”. Finding comfort in the laid-back and classic style that our brand culture embodies, Kirk finds himself at home on the TravisMathew team.
