Anyway, Duval is now the proud standard-bearing sponsor of Perky Jerky, which simply has to be the best-named company to come down the pike in quite some time. It's billed as "ultra-premium jerky," which seems like a contradiction in terms, but whatever. The Perky Jerky logo will have a prominent place on Duval's bag, which means that you'll either see it a whole lot on Sundays or it'll be gone by Friday afternoon, no middle ground.
A few golf sites have had fun with the idea of a former world No. 1 getting sponsored by a product that sounds like a Spongebob Squarepants character. And sure, there are easy jokes to make, left and right. But hey, a brother's got to make a living. Sure, Perky Jerky is no Nike or Lexus, but they laughed when Walter Hagen got sponsored by some fizzy little syrup drink called "Coca-Cola," too.* Good on ya, Dave!
