British golfer Aaron Rai beat Matthew Fitzpatrick to clinch the season-opening Honma Hong Kong Open. The three-time Challenge Tour winner wore his signature MacWet Golf Gloves on both hands throughout all rounds.
The MacWet Golf is designed to provide unrivalled grip in dry and wet weather conditions whilst maintaining feel and control and are sold in pairs which is unique in the golf industry. The weather in Hong Kong included rain and wind but Aaron was able to maintain his lead winning by one shot. Aaron Rai commented, “It started when I was eight years old, fifteen years ago now, and I got into the habit of wearing them. On one occasion my dad forgot to put the two gloves in my bag, I couldn’t play, couldn’t feel the grip and I have always stuck with the two gloves ever since”.
Mikhel Ruia, Glenmuir & MacWet Golf’s Managing Director commented, “All of the Glenmuir MacWet team here in Lanark Scotland are immensely proud of Aaron’s maiden victory on the European Tour and equally impressed by his three Challenge Tour wins last season. We wish Aaron all the very best as he embarks on his Race to Dubai. The MacWet golf glove uses a truly revolutionary and unique technology and Aaron’s experience is a testament to the ability of the glove to provide unrivalled grip whilst maintaining feel and sensitivity in all weather conditions and climates at the very highest level of the game”.
