Earns Second Green Jacket Wearing Limited-Edition ‘Bubba Green’ Made in the USA Tour Profile Model
(GREENVILLE, SC) – KENTWOOL – the 171-year-old, family-owned American textile innovator – reports that staff player Bubba Watson wore its limited-edition, ‘Bubba Green’ Tour Profile performance golf sock en route to winning the 2014 Masters.
Relying on KENTWOOL’s proprietary, fatigue-reducing blend of air-infused merino wool, Watson finished at eight-under-par 280 and earned his second Green Jacket. Entering the final round tied for the lead, Watson fell back by two shots, but critical birdies on holes six, eight and nine helped the 35-year-old fire a 69 and seal his sixth PGA Tour victory. The win also put Watson at a career-high No. 4 on the Official World Golf Ranking.
“Of the many players that wore our socks at Augusta, 86 percent made the cut,” says Mark Kent, CEO and President of KENTWOOL. “While Bubba again captured the greatest prize in golf, they all benefited from our blister-free guarantee.”
The KENTWOOL limited-edition Bubba Green model ($19.95) is sold exclusively at www.KENTWOOLSocks.com. Offered while supplies last through May 16, this distinctive green model boasts yellow heel and toe patterns with red brand accents. Crafted from a proprietary blend of fine merino wool and high-tech fibers for superior moisture management, the socks are Made in the USA.
"The first one for me, it’s almost like I lucked into it,” said Watson. “After giving it away last year, I wanted it back. This one was a lot of hard work and dedication."
