Clubs to Hire has expanded its team of tour ambassadors following the signing of a multi-year partnership with rising German star Hurly Long.
Long joins David Howell as a brand ambassador for the leading golf equipment rental company. The 46-year-old Englishman has extended his partnership with Clubs to Hire which first began in 2018.
Both players compete on the DP World Tour, an area where Clubs to Hire services most of its clients.
Long, 26, graduated to the DP World Tour this season after finishing 17th on the 2021 Challenge Tour. He picked up a first Challenge Tour victory at the 2020 Italian Challenge and represented Germany alongside Max Kieffer in the 2020 Summer Olympic Games in Tokyo.
Speaking about his new role, Long, who finished third in last month’s Ras Al Khaimah Classic, commented: “When I first heard about the Clubs to Hire service being offered to the travelling golfer, I thought it was a brilliant idea. Imagine being able to rent a top set of clubs from €40 per week and not having the hassle of dragging them onto the plane. It really is the perfect solution both financially and for convenience.”
Howell, who has five European Tour titles to his name, added: “I think Clubs to Hire is a fantastic business that allows the travelling golfer the opportunity to try out all the latest hardware in the market, including my own favourite brand, Callaway, for a fraction of the cost. As a DPWT professional we get to try all the latest clubs, now traveling golfers can do the same by choosing from the sets available at Clubs to Hire.”
Clubs to Hire founder Tony Judge said: “David and Hurly are a fantastic combination for our business. One is in the autumn of his career, and the other is starting out on what we believe will be a very successful career on the DP World Tour. Our two biggest markets are the UK and Germany, and we look forward to our ambassadors engaging with our base of clients over the next couple of years.”
Judge said, “Hurly Long recently joined the DP World Tour where he has already made his mark by climbing 73 spots on the DPWT rankings to 34th place, after a fine 3rd place in Ras al Khaimah”.
Judge went on to say “Hurly will appeal greatly to our German base of golfers who will get to know him more as he plays his 2022 DP World Tour season. He is only 27 and has a great future ahead of him”.
