Prestigious golf clothing company Glenmuir has revived its relationship with International Pairs and agreed a deal to be the official supplier for the 2009 world final to be staged at Carnoustie next month.
The Lanark-based firm has finalised a sponsorship agreement with the world’s largest competition of its kind for club golfers to provide competitors with the official clothing at this year’s event.
Competitors and staff at the tournament, which takes place in Scotland from October 11-13, will receive a range of Glenmuir products branded with the International Pairs World Final logo including a waterproof top, polo shirt and cap.
Glenmuir last teamed up with International Pairs at the 2000 world final in Ireland and sales director Graham Hayward is looking forward to working with the global competition again.
Hayward said
“Glenmuir is delighted to be involved with such a prestigious global event.
“As we know from years of supporting the European Ryder Cup team, in this type of pressurised environment it is essential to look good and feel comfortable on the course.
“By wearing Glenmuir, each member of staff and finalist can be sure of getting the very best in style and performance from their clothing.”
Glenmuir has been the preferred supplier to the European Ryder Cup team for 23 years and enjoys partnerships with the PGAs of Europe, the European Tour and the English Golf Union among others.
The new agreement with International Pairs follows after the company finalised deals this year to supply the team kit to the Great Britain and Ireland Walker Cup and PGA teams and both teams in the Vivendi Trophy.
Ross Honey, managing director and founder of International Pairs, said: “Glenmuir is a clothing brand that is synonymous with the best golf competitions in the world.
“Their involvement in International Pairs can only strengthen our status across the world and it is fantastic to be working with them again.”
Competitors from 20 countries including South Africa, America, Spain, Canada and Portugal will gather at Carnoustie next month for the chance to be crowned as the sixth International Pairs world champions.
And this year will see Romania, Antigua and Barbuda make their debuts in the 36-hole event, which will be played over two days on Monifieth’s Medal Course - an Open qualifying venue - and the Championship Course at Carnoustie - venue for the 2007 Open Championship.
The Angus course has played an integral role in the success of International Pairs in recent years, hosting the competition’s UK final for three years in a row prior to next month‘s event.
International Pairs has grown to enjoy a worldwide status since being started by Honey in 1998 and the competition is set to flourish further with global media giants IMG having come on board in 2009 to play an integral role in planning its future.
