PUMA Golf has announced a multi-year extension of its existing relationship with PGA Tour player Gary Woodland that will see the 2019 US Open champion continuing as a PUMA staff player, wearing the brands apparel, footwear and accessories on and off the golf course.
Since signing with PUMA Golf in January 2019, Woodland has been a key ambassador for the brand, wearing pieces from PUMA’s Volition America Collection, a patriotic ensemble of products that honours and supports the families of America’s military heroes.
Dan Ladd, Executive Vice President & GM, COBRA PUMA GOLF, said: “Since we signed with Gary almost two years ago, he has been a wonderful addition to our PUMA Tour Team, and the perfect ambassador to lead our Volition America Collection on course. We’ve seen a spike in awareness and interest in our Volition America product with Gary wearing it on Tour, and we’re pleased to continue our relationship going forward. Gary’s play on the course is matched only by his character. He’s a tremendous PUMA ambassador both professionally and personally, and we’re excited to continue working with him and seeing him play great in patriotic style.”
Woodland, who begins the defence of his US Open title at Winged Foot tomorrow (Sept 17), said: “It’s an honour to continue my relationship with PUMA, supporting Folds of Honor through the Volition America Collection. I look forward to many more years together, rocking the PUMA style on and off the course.”
The Volition America Golf Collection, which first launched in 2017, marries the best of PUMA Golf’s cutting-edge apparel and footwear technologies and styles with Volition America’s focus on patriotism and all things, red, white and blue. The collection supports Folds of Honor, helping to fund educational scholarships for families of fallen and critically-injured military men and women.
Through the remaining tournaments and into the 2021 season, Woodland will continue to wear the brands celebrated IGNITE PWRADAPT CAGED footwear, including several Limited-Edition USA-inspired pairs, one of which he will wear at Winged Foot this week.
