Former European Tour player turned TV golf commentator Nick Dougherty has joined TaylorMade Golf as a brand ambassador.
Dougherty stepped away from the professional circuit in 2016 after a 14-year career which yielded three wins on the European Tour. He joined Sky Sports Golf that same year and has since gone on to anchor the live action across the channel’s coverage of the PGA Tour, European Tour, and all four Major Championships. In addition to his presenting and commentating role at Sky Sports, Dougherty also hosts a coaching series on the channel called Tee Time Tips.
“I am thrilled to have the opportunity to join Team TaylorMade as my career in golf continues to evolve,” Dougherty said. “My relationship with TaylorMade goes all the way back to my childhood with my trusty Burner Bubble driver and it was the R320 TaylorMade driver that helped me secure my tour card as a 19-year-old back in 2001.
“To now be able to join a brand that sits at the pinnacle of the sport is a great honour and to have the opportunity to work with the team to take the Tee Time Tips brand to a new level is hugely exciting.”
Paul Hitchenor, Brand Director EMEA – TaylorMade Golf, said: “We are delighted to welcome Nick to join the Team TaylorMade family. We have long admired Nick’s broadcasting talent, his expert view of the game and his dedicated ambition to help golfers of all abilities to improve and get more enjoyment out of their golf. Nick is up there with the very best when it comes to showcasing golf in an appealing and relatable way to all those who love playing or watching the game.
“At TaylorMade we strive to help golfers play better and take more enjoyment from the sport, therefore teaming up with Nick was a very natural fit. We cannot wait to work together to bring more fabulous content and unique experiences to even more golf fans.”
