Thomas Pieters has something VERY unusual on his golf bag

Thomas Pieters Bag

Kudos to Thomas Pieters – this is a superb piece of innovating.

The Belgian, part of the 2016 European Ryder Cup team, has space for a sponsor on the nameplate of his staff bag.

But, rather than just leave it blank, the big-hitting 27-year-old has decided to fill the area with a ‘For Sale’ sign… quite literally.

In the past 18 months, Pieters has used the space to promote various different projects with which he has a personal interest, including the Belgian Knockout tournament, wearematchplay.com, and his brother's creative agency OWOW. Now, though, it appears he's determined to monetise it - and why not!

In case you’re wondering, world No.81 Pieters - a three-time winner on the European Tour - is advertising the space in English, Dutch and Japanese.

Smart thinking!
