Leading golf apparel brand Galvin Green has announced its strongest ever Team of brand ambassadors for this season, with a total of 32 professionals headed by PGA Tour star Troy Merritt and LPGA and Solheim Cup winner Caroline Masson.
The Official Supplier of Weatherwear to the European Team at The 2018 Ryder Cup in Paris is providing its award-winning clothing to talented players from 13 nations competing on the PGA, European, Challenge, LPGA, Ladies European and LET Access Tours in 2017.
“Once again Galvin Green is supporting talented young golfers we see as having a big future in the game and we’re very excited about their prospects for the current season,” said Greg Pearse, Managing Director for UK & Ireland. “With garments like the new C-KNIT™ waterproofs, we have really pushed the boundaries of clothing technology this season to provide the ultimate comfort for our professional players in any weather condition they’ll have to contend with on Tour,” he added.
Competing in high-performance Galvin Green clothing on the PGA Tour alongside Merritt, who secured his first title at the Quicken Loans National in 2015, are Richy Werenski and Australian Brett Drewitt.
The list of players coming out of a successful European Tour 2016 season includes the consistent Ricardo Gouveia from Portugal and England’s Chris Paisley. Also on the European Tour wearing Galvin Green this season are Matt Nixon, John Parry, Laurie Canter, Daniel Im and Carlos Pigem.
Alexander Björk, who is attached to the brand’s home golf course at Växjö GC in central Sweden, has begun playing on the European Tour for the first time, after finishing seventh in the Challenge Tour rankings last year. Björk has made the cut in his first five events and attributes his strong opening performances to being comfortable in different playing conditions. “Galvin Green is the best golf clothing you can get and perfect for the changing conditions we face on Tour. I am proud to wear Galvin Green products and since they are based in my home city, it’s a perfect match!”
Eight promising players are also competing in Galvin Green clothing on the European Challenge Tour that begins next month in Kenya. New signings Guido Migliozzi, Thriston Lawrence and Christiaan Bezuidenhout from the Modest! Management stable join Gary Boyd, Daniel Gavins, Lauri Ruuska, Kalle Saamoja, Morton Orum Madsen and Kevin Phelan.
German star Masson, who shot a final round six-under 66 to claim her maiden LPGA Tour title at the Manulife LPGA Classic last month, heads the female line-up alongside Ladies European Tour players Kelsey MacDonald and Sophie Walker.
Karolin Lampert, Mireia Prat and two Swedish players Louise Larsson and Isabella Ramsey are also competing on the LET, while Josephine Janson, Johanna Björk, Alexandra Bonetti and Marika Voss represent the brand on the LET Access Tour
The 2017 Part-1 Galvin Green range contains more than 100 garments, including waterproof jackets and trousers, pullovers, shirts, shorts, hats, gloves,
socks, base layers and accessories; of which around half are brand new lines. The latest range also features original fabric technology entirely new to the golfing world across four different layers within its pioneering Multi-layer concept.
“We felt the best way to showcase the exciting new technology was to increase our presence on the Tour and we are really looking forward to working with more players than ever before,” said Tom Burlison who looks after Galvin Green’s Sports Marketing.
