Original Penguin Golf, a division of Perry Ellis International, is pleased to announce the re-signing of PGA Tour winner Cameron Smith as a brand ambassador.

"Cameron Smith is a proven winner on the PGA Tour and we are thrilled to continue our relationship and have him as an Original Penguin brand ambassador for years to come," said Oscar Feldenkreis, CEO, Perry Ellis International.

"Cameron’s four victories on tour, including a victory in each of the last three years, two Australian PGA Championships, member of the 2019 International Presidents Cup team and participant in the 2020 Olympics solidifies his position as a true international star."

With his record setting win at the 2022 Sentry Tournament of Champions, and a rise to 11th in the Official Golf World Rankings, 2022 is already shaping up to be a very exciting year for Cameron.” 

Building on its appeal to youth culture, Original Penguin leverages the brand’s mantra to Be An Original.

Original Penguin pays homage to its rich brand heritage, having been adored by countless icons for more than 60 years.

A strong influence of humor, fun and attention to detail can be seen in its products. The brand reworks its archive of mid-century classics with seasonal updates to reflect a modern lifestyle.

"I'm excited to continue my partnership with Original Penguin as they have been a huge supporter of mine over the years," said Smith.

"I love the new looks they come up with every season, as they perfectly match my personality on and off the course.  As an athlete, Original Penguin offers breathability, comfort, style and protection from the elements - helping me to play my best golf.”  

Original Penguin’s design inspiration represents a fusion of retro heritage style with a modern original twist.

Fabrics include luxe sustainable recycled yarns with elastane blends such as Repreve and 4-way stretch, extremely lightweight blends and moisture wicking UPF sun protection.

Invoking the feeling of spring, the designs come with a new modern tailored fit, both sophisticated and trim yet roomy enough to swing uninhibited.  The Original Penguin Spring/Summer 2022 Golf Collection captures the lifestyle of what it means to be an original.
