Ashworth Golf, a division of TaylorMade-adidas Golf, has announced its PGA tour staff for 2009, with the illustrious list including a number of proven tour winners, from seasoned campaigners Fred Couples and Chris DiMarco to future

prospects Charles Howell III and Ryan Palmer.

Other notables include Steve Flesch, Carlos Franco and world number 22, Sean O’Hair – and the line-up sees Ashworth maintain their approach of representing a wide demographic profile, with a staff player portfolio that should appeal to an extremely broad and wide range of golfers.

John Kawaja, Executive Vice President of TaylorMade-adidas Golf believes that Ashworth has always sought professional golfers who embody the soul of the game and states: “An Ashworth golfer doesn’t leave his love for the game at the course; it is carried like a badge of honour in every aspect of his life.”

In November 2008, the Ashworth brand became a wholly owned subsidiary of TaylorMade-adidas Golf. The group hopes to extend their current range of fashionable synthetic clothing with the addition of Ashworth’s traditional natural cottons.
