Ashworth releases Couples polo

Ashworth Golf has released of The Jefferson Polo, a limited edition golf shirt designed to honour long-time brand ambassador Fred Couples. The specially designed golf shirt, named after the century-old Jefferson Park Golf Course located near Couples’ childhood home in Seattle, has a sentimental value to Couples as it was the location where he discovered his natural swing and love for golf. Couples is set to wear The Jefferson Polo during the first round at Augusta.

The style features Ashworth’s newest apparel technology, Primatec cotton, a performance fabric that disperses moisture keeping the face of the fabric dry with minimal visible sweat. Each limited edition golf shirt features ‘2015’ laser-etched on the buttons and Fred’s signature story foil stamped on the hangtag.

Couples has worn Ashworth apparel on the professional stage since the brand’s inception more than 25 years ago. His celebrated career thus far includes 15 PGA tour wins, eleven Champions Tour wins, membership on five Ryder Cup teams and four Presidents Cup teams. He won The Masters in 1992 and has an unblemished record as captain of the American Presidents Cup team, holding a perfect 3-0 record.

Kristen Labate, global product manager at Ashworth Golf said, “We worked with Fred to create a timeless and classic golf shirt while developing an emotional connection to a place he holds dear. We wanted to make something that was relaxed and approachable, just like him.” More www.ashworthgolf.com
