On the heels of announcing Ashworth Golf’s return to the US marketplace, Newtimes Group, a global leader of retail supply chain management, today announced World Golf Hall of Famer and 1992 Masters champion Fred Couples is back as the face of Ashworth Golf.
Couples, who was outfitted in one of Ashworth’s classic polos when he captured the green jacket in 1992, will help reinvigorate the brand as he brings back the iconic Golfman logo when competing on the PGA TOUR Champions and other professional events around the world.
“I am thrilled to be back with Ashworth Golf and once again wearing the Golfman logo as I represent this legendary apparel line,” said Couples.
“Ashworth was right there with me when I won the Masters and it was part of my success during so many memorable victories. Golfers the world over love this brand.”
Eddie Fadel, president of Ashworth Golf, said: “It’s been 30 years since his historic win at Augusta, and Fred is still one of the most popular and respected golfers of all time.”
“It’s only fitting that he returns to the Ashworth Golf family as we relaunch the iconic brand in the US with a commitment to quality, style and performance.”
