Galvin Green has announced its biggest 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 clothing to players from 13 nations competing on the PGA, European, Challenge, LPGA, Ladies European and LET Access Tours in 2017.
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 Ricardo Gouveia from Portugal and England’s Chris Paisley. Also on the European Tour wearing Galvin Green are Matt Nixon, John Parry, Laurie Canter, Daniel Im and Carlos Pigem.
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.
“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 the brand in the UK & Ireland. “With garments like the new C-KNIT waterproofs, we have really pushed the boundaries of clothing technology to provide the ultimate comfort for our professional players in any weather condition they’ll have to contend with on 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, Galvin Green’s sports marketing manager.
