Ashworth Golf has released the next phase of the Ashworth Majors Series, featuring two limited-edition golf shirts inspired by the U.S. Open victories of Justin Rose (2013) and Retief Goosen (2001 and 2004).
Incorporating elements specific to each player’s major tournament win, Ashworth designers utilized premium fabrics and unique contrast threads throughout to ensure a piece distinctly representative of each player.
Each shirt in the series is individually numbered inside of the placket, with the total quantity produced matching the winning player’s total score.
Rose’s piece, limited to 281 total units, features his signature embroidered inside the back neck, white contrast piping on the chest and sleeve cuff, and has the historic date of his major championship stamped on the second placket button.
“I wore Ashworth when I won my first major championship at Merion and I’m proud to wear it on tour every week,” said Rose.
“I’m honored by this special piece commemorating my U.S. Open championship and look forward to having it on as I defend my championship at Pinehurst this year,” he added.
Goosen’s commemorative shirt is limited to 276 units, matching his winning score at the 2004 U.S. Open Championship.
Similar to Rose’s golf shirt, Goosen’s limited-edition piece has his embroidered signature in the back neck and contrast colouring on a rib-knit collar, in addition to the date of his major championship victory on the second placket button.
“I genuinely love the style and feel of Ashworth Golf apparel,” said Goosen.
“To have a golf shirt designed to celebrate my major victory is an honor, and I’m proud to wear it on the tenth anniversary of my second U.S. Open Championship victory,” he said.
Both Rose and Goosen will wear their special-designed golf shirts during first round play at this week’s U.S. Open at Pinehurst No. 2.
