There soon will be a Pancake seen in Waffle House restaurants nationwide.

Brooke Pancake a member of the LPGA Tour announced on January 20 that she signed a new endorsement deal with the Waffle House.

Pancake, who joined the tour in 2012, is in her third season on the LPGA Tour, and will be spending quite a bit of her time away from golf at the Waffle House.

Pancake will also have the logo of the restaurant on her golf bag.

While playing for the golf team at the University of Alabama, Pancake was instrumental in the team winning its first NCAA National Championship in 2012. Pancake sank the winning putt for Alabama to clinch the national title. In individual play, she was the runner up in the championship. She was named Team Member of the Year for the Academic All-America Team and the top student-sportsperson during her senior year.

Currently Pancake is ranked No. 214 in the world. Her best finish was in 2013 with a T-13 Walmart NW Arkansas Championship. As part of her contract to represent the Waffle House, Pancake will be visiting different Waffle Houses around the U.S.

She will also make posts on social media including Facebook, Instagram and Twitter about her visits to the different Waffle Houses.

Walt Ehmer the CEO at Waffle House said it was the first time that “everyone at the Waffle House is ready to cheer for a Pancake.” Pancake said that growing up in Chattanooga she was always a huge fan of the Waffle House. To be honest, said added, she preferred waffles to pancakes.

Pancake, who is 24, said her association started with the Waffle House after she made an announcement on national television on National Pancake Day that she preferred waffles to pancakes.

Hopefully she will be competitive this season on tour and broadcasters can enjoy a play on words. If she is in the rough close to the hole she might attempt a flop shot or would that be a flapjack by Pancake.

Pancake was a first team All-American at Alabama. She received the Honda Award in 2012 as the top collegiate golfer in the country. She competed for the U.S. on the Curtis Cup Team in 2012.
