Marvel fans are still dealing with the mind-blowing Avengers: Endgame movie; a movie that has enjoyed the most successful domestic opening of any movie in Hollywood history. For the fans who love golf, there is something special releasing very soon.
The United States Golf Association (USGA) is responsible for organising this year’s US Open major. USGA has partnered up with Marvel Entertainment to release a range of exclusive golf products. There will be a comic book (printed and digital copy) featuring your favourite Marvel superheroes teaching each other the basics of golf. The story follows Tony Stark (Iron Man) and other Avengers as they teach the next generation of Marvel Super Heroes about golf. The release will also include distribution of Marvel-themed golf posters with lessons for youngsters learning about the game and increase participation in the sport.
“We’re excited for this opportunity to introduce and teach the game of golf to a junior audience in a way that’s completely unique,” said USGA chief executive Mike Davis. “Utilising the power of the Marvel Universe will help us introduce the game to potential new golfers while also giving our existing players a fun new way to learn.”
The books will be available online prior to the US Open. Launch of this collaboration marks the end of Peanuts/Snoopy educational rule books which young fans have been enjoying for the last 30 years.
