Golf apparel brand Galvin Green has extended its exclusive clothing contracts with DP World Tour stars Alexander Björk and Laurie Canter for the 2022 season after they finished inside the top 30 in the 2021 Race to Dubai rankings.
Björk enjoyed a strong second half of the season, with the Swede finishing tied second in the DP World Tour Championship in Dubai to move up 39 places to 12th in the final points list, while a string of consistent results saw Canter end the schedule in 24th spot, following the Englishman’s closing 68 at the Jumeirah Golf Estates Earth Course, which moved him into share of 27th at the season’s final tournament.
Björk, winner of the 2018 Volvo China Open, has played in Galvin Green clothing since he turned professional in 2009, as the company, which is based at his home city of Växjö in southern Sweden, supported his career development through from the Nordic and Challenge Tours.
Canter claimed five top-10 finishes on the European Tour this year. His most notable performance came at the BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth in September, where he narrowly missed out on his maiden Tour victory on the final hole. He has worn Galvin Green apparel on Tour since 2015, having originally chosen to wear the brand before turning professional.
“Both Alexander and Laurie are fantastic ambassadors for Galvin Green and they carry the brand on and off the course with great style,” said CEO Nicholai Stein. “The drive for perfection is the focus of everything we do at Galvin Green and this ethos is clearly shared by these fine players, as they put themselves into contention at the world’s biggest tournaments,” he added.
“As a golfer from Sweden and Växjö, I’m very proud to wear the Galvin Green brand on Tour as it represents the ultimate in golf clothing design and fabric technology to keep me playing at the optimum level” said Björk. “Renewing our agreement for next season gives me motivation to take my performances to the next level and continue the success of our partnership.”
Canter, who is one of the longest drivers on the European Tour, said: “Because we play in such a wide variety of conditions – from the intense heat of Dubai to the wind and rain of Scotland – I know that wearing Galvin Green will always help me perform at my best. Being comfortable on the golf course so important to my success that I’m delighted to sign with Galvin Green for another exciting season.”
Among the garments worn by Björk and Canter this past season have been the MITCHELL and MAC shirts, constructed in VENTIL8 PLUS stretch fabric that combines excellent breathability with UV 20+ protection; NOAH trousers in the same flexible fabric which incorporate a shirt gripper waistband for a perfect fit in 20 size options; the DOMINIC INSULA half zip sweater made from fabric derived from recycled plastic bottles with extra padding in the shoulders for increased comfort; and the 100% waterproof GORE-TEX ACTION jacket with a C-KNIT ‘slide & glide’ lining.
