Ashworth launches Majors Series Apparel Collection
Series: Golf Buzz
Published: Thursday, April 03, 2014 | 12:08 p.m.
Ashworth Golf unveiled its Majors Series Apparel Collection today -- a set of six limited-edition golf shirts designed to commemorate the major victories by six of the company's Tour staff professionals: Fred Couples, Justin Rose, Stewart Cink, Justin Leonard, Paul Azinger and Retief Goosen.
The first Ashworth Major Series golf shirt in the collection is dedicated to Couples' victory at the 1992 Masters Tournament at Augusta National Golf Club.
Only 275 of the shirts were made, a number that matches Couples' winning total at the 1992 Masters. The second button on the shirt features the date Couples won the Masters and there's also a limited edition Majors Series patch on the right sleeve, as well as Couples' embroidered signature inside the back neck.
"I've worn Ashworth on tour since they started in 1987 and believe it's the best shirt ever made," said Couples. "Wearing Ashworth is very special to me and I'm excited to wear this new golf shirt at The Masters, where I won my first championship."
Each player is scheduled to wear their respective piece during the first round of the major they claimed in 2014.
The Fred Couples Ashworth Majors Series Collection will be available exclusively at www.ashworthgolf.com beginning Monday, April 7, at an MSRP of $100.
