Former U.S. Open champion and 2024 Presidents Cup captain becomes latest professional golfer to secure apparel sponsorship with B. Draddy and Zero Restriction
NEW YORK, (February 8, 2024) - Summit Golf Brands, the leading manufacturer of high-end golf apparel and sportswear, announced today the signing of 17-time PGA TOUR winner Jim Furyk as the newest athlete ambassador for the parent company’s notable brands, B. Draddy and Zero Restriction. The sponsorship deal will have Furyk outfitted in premium apparel and outerwear from both B. Draddy and Zero Restriction while on the course throughout the 2024 Champions Tour season.
Since turning professional in 1992, Jim Furyk has established himself as one of the most successful and well-respected players in the game, securing 17 PGA TOUR victories, including a Major win at the 2003 U.S. Open, a FedEx Cup Championship in 2010, and three PGA TOUR Champions victories over the course of his career. Furyk’s impressive resume also includes the record for the lowest score in PGA TOUR history, a 58 at the 2016 Travelers Championship, and PGA TOUR Player of the Year honors in 2010.
“I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to join the Summit Golf Brands family,” said Furyk. “As someone who’s spent countless hours and endured every type of weather condition imaginable on the golf course throughout my career, I’ve learned that what I’m wearing during a round plays a huge role in how I’m able to perform. I’ve long been a fan of B. Draddy and Zero Restriction, and to be partnering with two brands whose apparel delivers comfort without sacrificing performance feels like the perfect fit.”
The announcement of Summit Golf Brands’ partnership with Jim Furyk comes on the heels of B. Draddy and Zero Restriction being named the Official Apparel Providers of the 2024 Presidents Cup, a tournament during which Furyk will serve as captain of the U.S. Team. Beyond outfitting Furyk and his American team, B. Draddy and Zero Restriction will provide all of the apparel for the International team and event staff throughout this year’s Presidents Cup, which will take place at the Royal Montreal Golf Club from September 24-29, 2024.
“Between our recently expanded partnership with the Presidents Cup and now the opportunity to sign Jim Furyk, one of the biggest names in golf over the last two decades, this is an exciting time for B. Draddy and Zero Restriction,” said Chad Delp, President & CEO of Summit Golf Brands. “It’s an honor for our portfolio of products to be trusted by an athlete as decorated and experienced as Jim, and our team couldn’t be more excited to see him in B. Draddy and Zero Restriction gear throughout the 2024 season.”
Jim Furyk is just the latest high-profile golfer to be signed by B. Draddy and Zero Restriction, joining sixth ranked player in the world Patrick Cantlay and 2023 Open Champion Brian Harman as recent additions to Summit Golf Brands’ star-studded roster of professional golf ambassadors, which includes Christian Bezuidenhout, Taylor Moore, Zac Blair, Victor Perez, Leona Maguire, Cheyenne Knight and many others.
