The logo should suggest the attached PGA Tour logo, AND have a playful aspect because we're bringing a world class golf pro to an average guy's backyard, i.e. pro vs. shmo.
Perhaps some element could represent the backyard, like a window, fence, porch, eave, etc. (BUT AVOID CLUTTER)
Please convert the photo I've uploaded of golfer Phil Mickelson (file name = PRIMARY IMAGE) into a white silhouette in the style of the one in the PGA Tour logo. I've uploaded secondary images so you can fill in the golfer's feet.
I added a sketch to suggest a basic shape, but I'm open to any good alternative.
The show will be pitched to Golf Channel, so imagine the logo fitting in among the logos here: http://www.golfchannel.com/tv/#allShowsSec
UPDATE: I'd like to see a version where the golfer is chipping over a picket fence, as I'm chipping over a "fence" in the sample photo. The Backyard Tour logo could be attached to the fence.
I look forward to seeing your work and completing this competition soon so we can make the artwork for our pilot episode. Good luck!
