Justin Rose has signed with Ashworth Golf to become its newest brand ambassador. Rose is currently ranked ninth in the Official World Golf Rankings. He’ll make the switch to Ashworth’s newest line of apparel and Cardiff footwear this week at the European Tour’s BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth.
Rose, who has won four times on the PGA Tour and who plays TaylorMade equipment, is staying within the TaylorMade family as Ashworth Golf is owned by TaylorMade-adidas Golf.
Ashworth’s new line of golf shirts called EZ-TEC2 will be worn on professional Tours worldwide by Ashworth staffers. Made with 100 percent synthetic performance fabrics, Ashworth Golf says EZ-TEC2 offers a relaxed, modern fit combined with moisture-wicking elements to keep golfers cool and comfortable.
“This is a new category for Ashworth”, said Susan Bush, vice president of Ashworth Apparel and Footwear. “In the past we’ve focused primarily on cotton-based apparel because of the feel. With EZ-TEC2, we’ve created a lightweight golf shirt that not only incorporates the benefits of a best-performing synthetic; it also has a superior hand feel that golfers everywhere are going to love.”
