Caerphilly-based golf accessory brand, Asbri Golf, has been unveiled as an Official Supplier to The Senior Open Championship Presented by Rolex at Royal Porthcawl from July 24-27.
Supplying Official Merchandise to some of the biggest tournaments in golf is nothing new for Asbri following their successful licence to supply The 2010 Ryder Cup at The Celtic Manor Resort. That success story then led to an agreement to supply one of their best selling products at the 2010 US Open at Pebble Beach.
Now, this new agreement with The Senior Open Championship to supply the first Senior Major tournament in Wales gives the Welsh company another mark of distinction.
Edward Kitson, Senior Open Championship Director, commented: “We are delighted to have secured this agreement with Asbri for this year’s championship. Where possible, we always try to use local suppliers and Asbri were the obvious choice due to their location and quality of bespoke products. They have rapidly grown to be one of Europe’s leading logo brands.”
Eryl Williams, Managing Director of Asbri Golf, added: “The fact that a Senior Major Championship is coming to Wales is incredible alone, but to be involved and supplying Official Merchandise is the icing on the cake for us and all of our staff. We are delighted to be working with the championship organisers and are fully committed to producing an exceptional and desirable range of products for the event.”
Asbri Golf, formed in 2003, currently supplies more than 600 golf clubs through the UK and many more worldwide, exporting to more than 25 different countries. Their attendance at the PGA Merchandise Show in Orlando, Florida, for nine consecutive years has certainly been key to the company’s growth and success, partnering Visit Wales and the Welsh Assembly Government at golf’s largest trade event.
Paul Williams, Asbri Golf’s Sales & Marketing Director, added: “We would once again like to thank the team at Visit Wales and the Welsh Assembly for their tremendous support. They have helped our growth significantly over the years and it’s their key introductions and networking events that have helped us secure agreements such as this.”
Asbri Golf is also proud sponsor to The PGA Welsh National Championship and the Junior Wales Open. For further information about The Senior Open Championship Presented by Rolex, including how to buy tickets or hospitality packages, visit www.senioropengolf.com
