1.To promote or publicize intensively, often exaggerating its importance or benefits.
There is a lot of hype around this tournament, all around if one person can play the game post surgery. We say who cares when you’ve got Charley Hoffman, James Hahn, Patrick Cantlay, the TravisMathew dream team playing! (in our humble opinion of course)
Sorry (for being awesome)
This week the TravisMathew team will be in Cromwell, CT. for the Travelers Championship. Rain greeted players for the First Round yet the play continued as scheduled. Fitting that the title sponsors logo is an umbrella.
This week TravisMathew team members: Charley Hoffman, Matt Jones, James Hahn, Patrick Cantlay, and John Mallinger will all be competing.
We explored the bustling town of Cromwell to provide you an guide of what to do at the tournament…so far we found a holiday inn. We’ll keep you posted.
As nice as extended staycations in Morro Bay are, we thought this would be a good time to go visit Matt Jones, Chris Kirk, James Hahn and Charley Hoffman at the Crowne Plaza Invitational.
Upon arrival at the Crowne Plaza in Fort Worth (where else could you stay at a time such as this) we came upon a startling discovery. In the town where the Crowne Plaza hosts its PGA Tournament the hotel has gone out of business. So we are writing from the newly renovated lobby (couches) of the beautiful Fort Worth South Hotel.
Good luck to Team TravisMathew this weekend! Let’s hope that Crowne Plaza check clears!
If you want to learn how to be a player then you should read “THE GAME” by Neil Strauss. If you want to see how it’s done on the links, then keep your eye on TravisMathew Team Players: James Hahn, Matt Jones, Chris Kirk, and Charley Hoffman.
The Players Championship aka “the Master’s but fun”, is something that people look forward to ever year. The competition is not the only thing that will be intense, the hot humid weather that Florida is known for will be cool 95 degrees! We asked our players if they would dress in all black for this week’s Blackout Friday but they kindly declined…thanks Florida, you’re real gem.
Wells Fargo has recently rolled out an app that will allow you to take a photo of your check and make a deposit via smartphone. Many people who have used this app have praised this convenient method of banking as revolutionary and convenient.
This week the PGA Tour will be stopping in Charlotte, NC at the Quail Hallow Club for the Wells Fargo Championship. Team TravisMathew will be represented by James Hahn, Matt Jones, and Chris Kirk. With a purse of $6,900,000 the Champion will receive an oversized check for $1,242,000 presented to them by Well Fargo…Get your Smartphones ready this new app may come in handy after all.
Our boys may not have a star on the walk of fame, but don’t tell them that. This week Team TravisMathew is heading to the city where dreams are born, and more importantly where dreams go to die. Tune in to see Charley Hoffman, John Mallinger, James Hahn, Max Homa, and Matt Jones battle it out at the Northern Trust Open.
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 TravisMathew Team
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.

Recent Victories: “At this year’s TravisMathew Awesome Tour, Miguel Rivera (Charlie Hoffman’s player assistant) and I dominated at darts. We beat almost every team. The one team we didn’t beat was Team Brasher. He hit me with back-to-back shotguns. Needless to say I still let him win considering he’s the President of TravisMathew. If you’re thinking about playing in the Awesome Tour and beating me in darts, you better get that taste out of your mouth. Not gonna happen.
Infamous at TravisMathew for: Can’t be pranked
TM gear worn the most: “Ricket Hoodie because I like to keep my game tight.”
After his birdie on the 16th hole at the Waste Management stop in Phoenix, James Hahn gave the crowd something extra. It was embraced by the crowd and celebrated by the media. Check out the video below.
