Masters Golf Champion Bubba Wears Wool Socks
April 13, 2012
KENTWOOL – maker of premium, performance socks specifically engineered for golfers – announces Bubba Watson wore its Tour Profile natural golf socks en route to winning the 2012 professional Golf Association’s Masters in Augusta, Ga.
Watson relied on KENTWOOL’s proprietary, fatigue-reducing blend of air-infused merino wool to overcome a three-stroke deficit in the final eight holes of regulation and best Webb Simpson on the second playoff hole.
“These socks are super-comfortable and kept me energized well after regulation ended,” says Watson. “KENTWOOL socks performance keeps me playing my best, no matter what.”
“Bubba is off to a fantastic start this season and we are elated for him,” says Mark Kent, president and chief executive officer of KENTWOOL. “He’s a fantastic brand ambassador on and off the course, and we look forward to Bubba rocking the socks to more victories!”
“It was exciting to have Mark contact us to let us know that the masters champion was the first winner of a green jacket to wear 18.5-micron American wool that was superwashed at Chargeurs in Jamestown, S.C.,” said Rita Kourlis Samuelson, wool marketing director. “This is just another example of how important the superwash line that began operation in 2011 is to the domestic wool industry.”
The Augusta sock is available for $19.95 through April 30, or while supplies last, at www.kentwool.com/shop. KENTWOOL golf socks are backed by a “blister-free guarantee.” Retailing for $19.95
