Hilfiger Signs Bradley
Tommy Hilfiger, represented in Canada by the Fletcher Leisure Group, has announced the signing of 2011 PGA Tour rookie of the year and PGA Championship winner Keegan Bradley as its global ambassador through 2014.
“I am thrilled to have Keegan Bradley as the global ambassador for our golf collection,” said Tommy Hilfiger. “His energy both on and off the course is inspiring and a wonderful fit for our brand. We wish Keegan the very best on his upcoming season.”
The feeling is mutual, according to Bradley.
“I am really excited about joining the team at Tommy Hilfiger,” said Bradley.
“Tommy Hilfiger is an iconic American brand and I am extremely proud to be a part of its growth in golf going forward. The brand produces fantastic apparel for wear both on and off the golf course and in my opinion, if you look good, you play good,” he said.
The combination of the two names should have dividends in Canada, according to Mark Fletcher, president of the Fletcher Leisure Group.
“Keegan’s style, values and determination make him an ideal person to have on our team,” said Fletcher. “The timing could not be better as Keegan’s game has great momentum, as does the Tommy Hilfiger brand.”
