Named after the century-old Jefferson Park Golf Course located near Couples’ childhood Seattle home, the course has a sentimental value to Couples. It was where he discovered his natural swing and love for golf. Couples is set to wear The Jefferson Polo during the first round of the Masters this week at Augusta National.
The Jefferson features Ashworth’s newest technology called Primatec cotton, a premium fabric that quickly disperses moisture keeping the face of the fabric dry with minimal visible sweat. Each limited edition golf shirt features “2015” laser-etched on the buttons and Fred’s signature story foil stamped on the hangtag.
“We worked with Fred to create a timeless and classic golf shirt while developing an emotional connection to a place he holds dear,” said Kristen Labate, Global Product Manager at Ashworth Golf. “We wanted to make something that was relaxed and approachable, just like him.”
A longtime Ashworth ambassador, Couples has worn their apparel since the brand’s inception more than 25 years ago. He has 15 victories on the PGA TOUR, 11 on the Champions Tour, played on five Ryder Cup and four Presidents Cup teams. He won The Masters in 1992 and has a perfect 3-0 record as captain of the U.S. Presidents Cup team.
The Jefferson Polo will be available at select retailers and online at ashworthgolf.com for $100.WHAT'S YOUR REACTION?
