Wolsey Signs Michael Weaver as Golf Brand Ambassador

University of California All-American, 2013 Walker Cup Team Member to Compete on Tour

(LEICESTER, England) – Wolsey – one of the world’s oldest existing clothing brands and a pioneer of premium men’s apparel for sporting endeavors – announces the signing of former amateur star Michael Weaver, who will compete in the recently re-launched Sportsman line and showcase the company’s distinctive fox logo on his left chest, right sleeve and back yoke.

Weaver recently turned pro after graduating from the University of California and will primarily compete on the Tour in 2014. Highlights of the 23-year-old’s impressive amateur career included finishing runner-up at the U.S. Amateur (2012) and being named First Team All-American (2013). He also became only the second golfer ever to compete in the Masters, Palmer Cup, U.S. Open and Walker Cup in same calendar year (2013).

“Michael’s skill, intelligence and determination have him poised to continue his success and make a significant mark on the pro game,” says Wayne Webster, Wolsey’s Golf Sales Director. “He looks great in our clothes and, equally as important, is an outstanding young man.”

Recently re-launched, Wolsey Sportsman will premiere for Autumn/Winter 2014. It uses traditional British menswear colors in a clean and subtle manner. These combine with minimal and strong textual patterns to create a “less-is-more” aesthetic.

Featuring a silhouette that is more middle ground than slim, the collection includes performance merino polo’s, base layers, knitwear and pants, as well as breathable, waterproof and multi-layered outerwear. Many pieces rely on Invista THERMOCOOL technology that dual regulates body temperature to ensure the sportswear is “fit for purpose.”

“These clothes fit and feel amazing, which is exactly what I need while I compete against the world’s best players,” says Weaver. “Wolsey’s just becoming known in the U.S., but I can’t think of another brand that can match its 260 year heritage.”

Weaver is the latest addition to the modern team of pioneers that embody the Wolsey spirit. These include European Tour players Tom Lewis, Robert Rock and James Heath, famed designer Johan Lindeberg and noted polar explorer Alex Hibbert. This continues a tradition at the brand that traces directly back to historic adventurers like Sir Ernest Shackleton and Captain Robert Falcon Scott, as well as golfing greats Peter Allis and Tony Jacklin.
