DG Social media (warning: the lack of BBQ talk is disappointing)

Because Valerie has less than 10K follower on instagram and Kona has 55.2K.

Literally 5.5x as many eyes have the potential to see what Kona says vs Valerie. Sponsorship contracts are just another form of marketing. You're not going to spend $125K a year on an advertisement in the back of an alley if you can get one on a main street billboard for the same price, even if the billboard might be slightly "worse."

DD Press Conference

Worth a watch in my opinion.

Imo, Kona is not on same plane as Kristin Tattar as a player. She seems to be banking on her social media presence. Kona has improved the last 2 years, but Kristin is a proven entity. This will be interesting to see how it plays out.

Especially when the euros and Americans all play the same tournament together again.

Kona only has 55k Instagram followers?

I would've thought with all this talk about her social media presence and the salary they are paying her, that number would've been way higher.

I see Kona in a different light today. She repeatedly compared herself to Kristin, and that isn't a good comparison imo.

Yet, she has cash in hand.

Kristin is 29, and I know has at least 1 child at home.

Kona is 23 and tours full time with her fiancÚ.

Winning does not matter as much as exposure.

People love Kona. This is meant more as a statement of her value and not anything disparaging about her, but she gets a lot of credit for doing things that every pro does - like changing her putt or doing field work.

I just hope DD shows some love to Valerie and Macie V and give them a chance to build their brand into something more. Because I think we may see them in the mix just as much as Kona, maybe more.

If social media presence was the key- - Simon wold hade a bigger contract than Ricky
