The iconic high performance brand, which dominates Europe’s biggest golf rainwear market and supplies golfers in more than 20 countries worldwide, has taken the opportunity to become an exclusive provider of outerwear to the Ryder Cup team for the first time.
The 12 team members and their caddies, captain Darren Clarke and his vice captains will all don the Galvin Green outerwear for the matches at Hazeltine next year and Le Golf National near Paris in 2018, with the outfits made available to the wider golfing population after each contest ends.
The company will also retain the license for producing a dedicated Ryder Cup collection for regular golfers that it introduced with great success ahead of Europe’s triumph at Gleneagles last year.
The new collection is scheduled to be launched before the 2018 event in France, when the Ryder Cup returns to continental Europe for the first time in 21 years.
“We are particularly pleased to have one of the most sought-after outerwear brands in golf supporting Europe” – Richard Hills
Speaking about the deal, Richard Hills, European Ryder Cup director, said: “Ryder Cup Europe is delighted to have Galvin Green as one of its Official Team Suppliers for the European teams in 2016 and 2018.
“Its garments proved to be very popular when part of the official Ryder Cup range at Gleneagles and we are particularly pleased to have one of the most sought-after outerwear brands in golf supporting Europe when they defend the trophy next year.”
And Galvin Green will be hoping to help continue Team Europe’s recent success in the match, where they will be aiming to win their fourth Ryder Cup in a row and their seventh in the last eight.
