PGA Tour Players Sam Ryder & Kelly Kraft Join the Good Dogg Pack!
Hey there, golf fans! Here at Good Dogg Beverage, we’ve been so excited about the expansion of our athlete sponsorship program to the PGA. We are always proud to introduce our mission to new communities, and we take pride in partnering with athletes that share our dedication to philanthropy.
Good Dogg is thrilled to continue our partnership for the 2023 season with PGA Tour players Sam Ryder and Kelly Kraft. We’ve already had an excellent time teeing off this partnership and expanding the footprint of our Leverage The Beverage™ program, in which we provide service dogs to children with rare diseases.
Where Golf Meets Good
Sam Ryder has played golf professionally since 2012 and has 16 career Top-10s, two already in the 2022-2023 season. At the 2022 WM Phoenix Open, Ryder left his mark at the 16th hole. In the third round, he holed his 125-yard tee shot for a hole-in-one at the par-3 16th hole, the tenth in history at this famous TPC Scottsdale hole.
Sam has consistently played at the top of the leaderboard most recently with the best players like John Rahm, Max Homa, and other world-class golfers. Sam had everyone in the Good Dogg community glued to the television at this year's Farmers Insurance Open at Torrey Pines and the 2023 WM Phoenix Open, where he finished T4th and T20th, respectively.
Even more impressive, Ryder exudes a passion for giving back to the community. We had the privilege of spending time with him at the 2022 Boston Seltzerland and were blown away by his excitement toward our mission. “The positive energy and buzz around Good Dogg stood out,” he said. “It’s a product and a cause I can easily get behind.”
Kelly Kraft also joined the PGA Tour in 2012. His successful career includes 10 Top-10s, two third-place finishes, and three runner-ups. He is also a winner of the 2015 Chitmacha Open and the 2011 U.S. Amateur Champion and was a 2011 Walker Cup Team Member.
But did you know he is also a dedicated dog dad? Kraft often travels with his white labrador, Pearl, who likes to keep him company while on the road. After learning about Good Dogg’s mission, Kraft eagerly got involved. His enthusiasm to support both dogs in need and the children they assist makes us so proud to partner with him.

Through our Leverage The Beverage™ program, a portion of all Premium Hard Seltzer proceeds and 100% of all merchandise proceeds are donated to our partner organizations that work to provide support and service dogs to children with rare diseases.
