Matt Jones swung his first golf club at the age of four and never looked back. From a young age, the Australia native had a dream of becoming a professional golfer. A chance meeting with a golf legend motivated him even more.
“When I was 6 years old, I was fortunate enough to meet my idol, Greg Norman, who was the number one golfer in the world at the time,” Matt said. “We golfed together, and he really sparked my determination to play. I knew this was something I wanted to make a career out of one day.”

Matt did just that, turning pro in 2001 and notching multiple PGA Tour and Australian Open victories in his career so far, including winning The Honda Classic in 2021.
Matt has his sights set on another great season in 2022, this time as a Flex Seal Ambassador.
“I’m excited to be entering my 22nd year of professional golf proudly wearing the Flex Seal logo,” he said. “I love the Flex Seal brand and look forward to a great, long-lasting partnership with them.”
When he isn’t on the course, Matt enjoys barbequing, boating, and spending time with family and friends.

Brandon Hagy was born in Santa Monica, CA and has been a professional golfer since 2014. He has a reputation for being one of the longest hitters in the game and a ball speed that can reach a blistering 192mph!
Fun end to the week at @rocketclassic. Had a go at it and feeling good about my game. Hope everyone had a great 4th! #wheninrhone #sendit #192mph pic.twitter.com/1zRnQhVLKe— Brandon Hagy (@BrandonHagy) July 5, 2021
“I’ve been golfing since I was 9 years old, and it’s taken a lot of hard work to get where I am today,” Brandon said. “I love this sport and am grateful for all the opportunities and experiences it continues to provide me.”
Feels really good to see a lot of hard work validated this week. Didn’t think I’d have the opportunity to play in the @thehondaclassic and might have gotten some birthday luck. Best part was having my girls fly out to be here with me. Golf is wild #sendit #wheninrhone pic.twitter.com/cRMQgPPoLF— Brandon Hagy (@BrandonHagy) March 22, 2021
In 2017, Brandon earned his PGA Tour card after an impressive first few seasons. His next big goal is to claim his first PGA Tour victory with Flex Seal by his side.
“I am very excited to be a part of the Flex Seal team. We share a lot of the same values, and I look forward to this new partnership,” said Brandon.

When he isn’t golfing, you can usually find Brandon spending time with his family, listening to the Zac Brown Band with a cup of coffee in hand, or simply enjoying the great outdoors.
We look forward to supporting both of these talented golfers. Want to follow their journey? You can start by following them on Instagram:
