Oakley athletes, Shaun White and Rory McIlroy teamed up to film a 50th Anniversary public service announcement for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
Every golfer has nightmares of missing a one-foot put to win a championship. The only problem in Rancho Mirage, California was that I.K. Kim was awake and this was real. Kim had a one-foot putt on the 18th hole of the Kraft Nabisco Championship for par and the trophy and she did the unthinkable. Kim’s victory putt rimmed the cup and shot out back towards her, forcing her to tap in for bogey, erasing her one stroke lead. Oakley’s Sun Young Yoo was there, sporting her custom Flak Jacket sunglasses, one stroke behind the lead, ready to capitalize on Kim’s mistake. The tournament went to a playoff as a result of the epic miss and Yoo came out on top in the end.
All eyes have been on Oakley’s Rory McIlroy this year at Augusta National. Following last years disappointing final day at The Masters, young McIlroy is looking for redemption in the only way he knows how: earning the green jacket that eluded him.
