Dunlop have announced that they have extended their sponsorship agreement with Lee Westwood. The deal has been extended for a further three years and the announcement comes ahead of Westwood teeing off at Baltusrol today (28th July).

Should Westwood lift the US PGA Championship trophy come Sunday, the ‘Worksop Wonder’ will land a massive £2 million courtesy of the unique agreement with the leading golf brand, Dunlop. The deal stipulates that the Ryder Cup stalwart is entitled to scoop £2 million for a major championship victory. If he does secure victory at Baltusrol, his sponsors will be the first to toast his success.

Luke Smith, Dunlop’s Brand Manager, said: “Lee is one of the most popular golfers on tour. He has played a huge part in the game for so many years and deserves every success. We’re delighted that he’s chosen to sign a new three year deal, and naturally we wish him the best of luck over the next four days.”
