ProQuip aiming for another record-breaking Ryder Cup

ProQuip, Scotland’s leading golf weatherwear and apparel company, is hoping its 2018 Official Ryder Cup Collection will deliver record breaking sales at Le Golf National this month.

ProQuip, an Official Licensee of Ryder Cup Europe for the 2018 match, is preparing to ship more than 3,500 items to Paris for sale in the merchandise pavilion at Le Golf National.

The last time ProQuip clothing was on sale at a Ryder Cup in Europe, the brand broke all existing records for physical and online sales, by selling out the entire range and replenishing several key pieces at Gleneagles, Scotland in 2014.

Russell Brooks, general manager of ProQuip Golf, said: “ProQuip has enjoyed a productive association with Ryder Cup Europe since 1983, both as a Preferred Supplier and as an Official Licensee. At Gleneagles, we experienced unprecedented demand for our replica team rain suit and branded clothing. With expectation mounting for Paris this month, we’re confident that our range will again be highly desirable for European golf fans.”

ProQuip’s collection includes lightweight waterproofs, windproofs, technical mid-layers, knitwear and polo shirts.

The collection has been available from preferred ProQuip retailers and online at the official Ryder Cup shop in the lead up to the match.

“Le Golf National is quite an exposed course and it can get windy out there, so we’re expecting our windproof mid-layers and waterproofs to be popular with fans who underestimate conditions once they reach the course,” added Brooks.

ProQuip has been a Preferred Supplier to 20 Ryder Cup Teams – European and American – since 1983 and is one of the most trusted weatherwear brands in golf.

ProQuip recently launched a new lifetime waterproof guarantee on selected models in its PX-Series (Performance-Xtreme) of rain suits. The stormFORCE PX5 and stormFORCE PX6 pro models both carry lifetime warranty.
