The contract will run for three years and cover the 2016 and 2018 tournaments in Minnesota and Paris respectively.

FootJoy remain partners with Ryder Cup Europe

FootJoy has extended its partnership with Ryder Cup Europe for another three years after the success of the 2014 Ryder Cup.

France will host the Ryder Cup for the first time in 2018 when Le Golf National near Paris welcomes some of the world’s best players for the riveting biennial match.

Paul O’Hagan, FootJoy’s Marketing Executive, said: “Our Gleneagles-branded garments have proved really popular over the last two years and we hope the new agreement will help support our retail partners further with more standout garments until at least 2018.”

Sweaters, polo shirts and pullovers will be included in the new line of garments, with new Maui and Evoke colourways. Golfers will be able to purchase Ryder Cup coloured shoes through FootJoy’s MyJoys platform.

The Evoke collection will be heavily featured in the new offering, with white, berry, navy and mint colour combinations. The Maui collection will feature orange, white, navy and aqua and will be available to golfers before the Hazeltine tournament.

Richard Hills, Europe’s Ryder Cup Director, said: “Ryder Cup Europe is delighted to extend our agreement with Footjoy, the number one shoe in golf.

“As one of our valued Official Licensees, the company proved a huge success at Gleneagles last year and I have no doubt they will continue to build on that success when The Ryder Cup takes place at Hazeltine National next year.”

Clarke and Davis Love III will captain the sides in the United States next year, with the hosts eager to win back the cup after three consecutive defeats.

Love will be captaining the United States for the second time in three tournaments following his unsuccessful first attempt in Medinah.
