FootJoy holes Ryder Cup extension

Golf equipment and clothing manufacturer FootJoy has extended its partnership with Ryder Cup Europe.

FootJoy will remain Team Europe’s official licensee for the next three years, a period that includes the 2016 and 2018 Ryder Cups at Hazeltine National Golf Club in Chaska, Minnesota and Le Golf National near Paris, respectively.

As part of the agreement, the company will develop Team Europe polo shirts, sweaters and pullovers, as well as Ryder Cup-branded gloves, socks and apparel.

The renewal comes after the two parties enjoyed a successful relationship during last year’s tournament at Gleneagles in Scotland.

Paul O’Hagan, marketing executive at FootJoy, said: “Our Gleneagles-branded garments have proved really popular over the last two years and we hope the new agreement will help support our retail partners further with more standout garments until at least 2018.”
