Brand Fusion, the leading distributor of branded and licensed products to the golf trade, has won its first criminal court case against counterfeit sellers of the putter grip made famous by world No.1 Jordan Spieth.
Last Friday (15 January), Judge DDJ Edwards at Preston Magistrates’ Court accepted a guilty plea from Stephen Prue of the RS Golf Company Ltd to all five charges relating to his selling counterfeit SuperStroke grips. As well as gaining a criminal record, he was sentenced to a 12-month Community Order with 80 hours of unpaid work on each count to run concurrently and his company was fined £500. (more…)
SuperStroke, the hottest grip brand on the market, has added a new Pistol GT model to its latest range of putter grips for 2016 that incorporate trend-setting CounterCore Technology across three different lines.
The Pistol GT is the smallest grip in the SuperStroke range, so it gives those golfers currently using a conventional putter grip a smooth transition into the parallel technology pioneered by the brand for a controlled putting stroke. (more…)
Galvin Green is delighted to announce the continued sponsorship of the PGA Assistants’ Championship for the second year running. The agreement with the PGA will re-enforce the brands supporting role in the next generation of PGA Professionals across Great Britain and Ireland.
This year’s Galvin Green PGA Assistant’s Championship final will be held at a new venue – Little Aston Golf Club in Sutton Coldfield from 3-5 August – following seven regional qualifying events across the U.K and Ireland in May at prestigious venues such as Craigielaw Golf Club, East Lothian (PGA Scotland), County Meath in Trim (PGA Ireland) and Purdis Heath Golf Club in Ipswich (PGA East).
Around 120 Assistant Professionals will compete for the first prize of £5,000, a Galvin Green wardrobe and entry to the end of season PGA Play-Offs and the Australian PGA Futures Championship.
“Galvin Green is once again proud to be part of a long-standing event supporting the future generation of PGA Professionals,” said Greg Pearse, Managing Director of Galvin Green UK.
In a new feature for the 2016 season, different coloured Ventil8 shirts will be worn to signify the leader overnight as part of an on-going commitment by the leading high-performance clothing brand.
The PGA’s longest running event was established in 1930 – pre-dating the US Masters by four years – is notoriously difficult to win with players only eligible to compete in the championship during their three years of training.
Past winners include legendary TV commentator Peter Alliss and former Open champion and Ryder Cup captain Tony Jacklin.
Galvin Green first sponsored the event in 2015, with Jack Harrison winning by four shots at the Coventry Golf Club.
