Ashworth, leading designer of on-course golf apparel and golf inspired lifestyle sportswear, has announced that John Ashworth will return to the company he co-founded twenty years ago to consult on all aspects of Ashworth brand development. The position is effective immediately and comes as the company celebrates its 20th anniversary.

“It’s great to be back. There’s a positive energy in the new leadership of the company. I look forward with excitement and optimism to the opportunity to add value to the brand and to the golf community once again,” commented John Ashworth.

John Ashworth, regarded as one of the world’s leading golf lifestyle apparel designers, established Ashworth in 1987, where his fashionable designs revolutionised clothing trends in the golfing world. John was also an integral part of bringing a young Fred Couples to the Ashworth brand, where he now stands as a lifelong ambassador. To commemorate John’s return and to celebrate their anniversary Ashworth have launched a commemorative new box set. The box sets are limited edition and are available through pro shops.

Ashworth has long been recognised as a brand to bring cutting edge innovation and sophisticated styling onto the golf course. “Ashworth’s dedication to quality, style and function has become our historic heritage. Since our beginning in 1987, Ashworth has enjoyed a unique relationship with on-course golf clubs, pro shops, resorts, resorts and retail markets, and has been redefining golf wear ever since. We are looking forward to working with John. His return to Ashworth on its 20th anniversary has energised our organisation and represents our ongoing commitment to moving the brand forward.” said Grahame Jenkins, managing director of Ashworth Europe.
