Getting edgy to change brand perception.


As new owners of the Top Flite brand, Dick’s Sporting Goods wanted to shake things up and go after the "grip it and rip it" crowd who valued distance above all else. But the brand had languished for years, and if their golf balls were remembered at all, it was often by their nickname: “Rock Flites.”


Since we weren’t going after traditional golfers, we realized that we’d have to go beyond the bounds of traditional golf advertising. So we got a bit irreverent to match the spirit and attitude of our target golfers, knowing that meant we’d be stepping over the line with others.
