Glenmuir, the leading golfwear brand renowned for supporting golf at all levels, has announced a three-year clothing agreement with Challenge Tour player Duncan Stewart.

The 29-year-old Inverness, Scotland, golfer turned pro in 2007 after graduating from JacksonvilleUniversity in Florida and he also came through the Paul Lawrie Foundation, the sporting centre of excellence founded by the Ryder Cup player with whom Glenmuir enjoyed a long association until last year.

Duncan made every cut in 15 events on the PGA EuroPro Tour last year to finish second and qualify for the Challenge Tour, a period during which he won the Sweetspot Classic and Sweetspot Masters as well as securing a lucrative third place in the Tour Championship finale at Woburn.

Duncan said “I’m delighted to sign the agreement with Glenmuir, I love the clothing range and design. I get an extra lift in confidence from looking good, playing the sport I love. I would like to thank my management group MB Partners in sourcing the opportunity on my behalf and Glenmuir for putting their faith in me”.

Attached to Grantown on Spey GC, Duncan is on track to complete his dream of playing at the highest level on the European Tour, alongside countrymen like Lawrie and emerging stars Scott Jamieson and Peter Whiteford.

Announcing the agreement, Glenmuir managing director, Colin Mee, said: “We’re always happy to try and support young, Scottish, golf talent and Duncan is a golfer who looks to have all the attributes to become a very successful Tour player.

“The fact that he came through the ranks at the Paul Lawrie Foundation is also extremely pleasing. Glenmuir enjoyed a happy association with Paul for many years and Duncan’s progression is testament to the success that the foundation has in nurturing young sportspeople and helping them to achieve their goals in life.

“We’re delighted to be playing a part in the next exciting phase of Duncan’s journey and we wish him every success.”

Glenmuir has been at the forefront of the golfwear industry since 1891. Based in Lanark, Scotland, the company has taken this outstanding pedigree and unveiled a stunning collection of men’s and ladies’ knitwear, shirts and weather wear for 2013.
