Your Golf Travel has signed Lee Westwood as its new brand ambassador on the US PGA tour, as part of the company’s expansion plans into North America. Westwood has agreed a multi-year deal to represent Your Golf Travel. Darren Clarke will return to the European Tour in 2015, and will remain as the company’s global brand ambassador based in Europe.
Westwood will promote YourGolfTours, the American division of the Your Golf Travel brand, which services United States customers looking to play golf in the UK and Ireland. He will also advise the company strategically on their global portfolio of golfing destinations and resorts as part of the new role. Westwood is also a founding ambassador for Yourteetimes.com, – an online portal allowing UK golfers to book tee times instantly both domestically and internationally, due for launch in late 2014.
The timing of the announcement has been chosen to coincide with the ISPS Wales Open held at the Celtic Manor Resort. Celtic Manor is a key partner of Your Golf Travel, with the company sending tens of thousands of golfers to the Newport venue since the 2010 Ryder Cup.
Westwood commented, ‘I am looking forward to my new role working closely with Darren and Yourgolftravel to continue the growth of their new and existing golfing brands. I will be advising them on growing their golfing product and improving the experiences of golfers travelling internationally and especially within the US. I have lived in West Palm Beach for a number of years now, which is the market that they are rapidly expanding into for golfers heading in both directions across the pond. It’s a very exciting partnership for both of us and I intend to add some real value for their golfers travelling around the world.” More at www.yourgolftravel.com
