Rose Makes Switch to Ashworth

12.26am 22nd May 2012 - Sponsorship & Events

Ashworth Golf, an authentic golf brand dedicated to bringing modern style to the golf course, is pleased to announce that Tour staff professional Justin Rose has become the newest Ashworth brand ambassador, rounding out an already expanded Tour team.

Rose, currently ranked ninth in the Official World Golf Rankings, will make the switch to Ashworth’s current line of apparel and footwear this week at the European Tour’s BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth.

“I am really excited about partnering with Ashworth going forward; I think that it comes at the right time for me”, says Rose, “I am now into my thirties; my sense of style has evolved over the last couple years and I am certainly a lot more clear about what I want to achieve going forward and how I want to look doing it.”

Rose, 31, is a South African-born English professional golfer who plays most of his golf on the PGA Tour, while keeping his membership on the European Tour. Since turning professional in 1999, Rose has won four times on the PGA Tour and five on the European Tour, most recently at the WGC-Cadillac at Doral Golf Resort in March 2012.

“Justin is the right man at the right time for the Ashworth brand. He’s fit, focused and poised, and continues to mature as a player,” said Kevin Ross, VP Ashworth Golf. “He maintains dual membership on the PGA and European Tours, has won multiple times professionally, and possesses the tools to win a Major Championship.”

On the course, Rose is known for his style, class and inviting personality. Off the course, he is a devoted husband and father of two, and generously supports numerous worthy charities.

“For me I am the kind of player who one day wants to go down in history books, I want to achieve some great things and still think that’s within my capabilities. To be partnering with a brand that already has achieved great things within the game, and that has a great history behind it, for me feels like a very good fit”, said Rose, “Hopefully throughout the rest of my career I can help Ashworth write a new chapter also.”
