Tommy Bahama has come to an exclusive multi-year agreement with PGA Tour player Ricky Barnes.
As an amateur, Barnes was a four time All-American honors recipient at the University of Arizona and the US Amateur Champion in 2002. He was also the winner of the historic Ben Hogan Award given annually to the nation's top collegiate golfer. Since turning pro, Barnes continues to raise the bar. In 2003 he set a tour record making 23 straight cuts and finished second at the 2009 US Open at Bethpage Black.
Going forward, every time Barnes steps on the course, he will be wearing Tommy Bahama gear as well during other personal and professional appearances.
As the relationship between the Tommy brand and the athletics industry grows stronger, this new partnership will again bring the island flair to the forefront for all to see.
Barnes’ new golf attire will feature Tommy Bahama polos, woven shirts, knits, outerwear and performance golf pants will feature the brand’s new IslandZone collection, which is crafted from a revolutionary new technical fabric. It’s game changing, crafted to make your clothing more comfortable.
As Tommy’s newest ambassador, Barnes’ name is now included on the list of other fellow PGA players that embrace the lifestyle including Ken Duke and golf legend Tom Lehman, who has worn the brand since 2002.
“I appreciate the support of Tommy Bahama,” said Barnes, “and, no pun intended, it’s a great fit. I’m proud to represent a company whose attitude toward both life and golf mirror mine.”
