Stuart Appleby signs Ambassador agreement with Cross Golf USA

PGA Tour player Stuart Appleby has signed a multi-year Ambassador agreement with Cross Golf USA. As a Cross Ambassador, he will wear the clothing line at all his worldwide tournament appearances and will be featured in print materials and advertising for the brand.

"We're very excited to have Stuart representing Cross," said Diana McCarty, President Cross Golf USA (the US distributor for Cross Golf Apparel). "Stuart is a premier player and athlete who also has a genuine understanding of performance apparel and fabrics. Our relationship is more than Stuart just wearing the brand; he understands the DNA of Cross and his professional feedback will play a key role in the design of our future ranges."

A native of Australia and now dividing his time between Windermere, Florida, and Melbourne, Australia, Appleby is one of only 5 players in the history of the PGA Tour to shoot 59, a feat he accomplished in the last round of his victory at the 2010 Greenbriar Classic. He also has played in five Presidents Cup competitions for the International team.

"Cross sportswear has a fantastic feel and fit," said Appleby. "The European styling makes it look great, and the technology behind the materials makes Cross a true performance collection, which is critical for optimum play under pressure. Finding the ideal combination of fashion and functionality is exciting and I look forward to wearing the collection in competition and in day to day life."
