KENTWOOL announces limited-edition commemorative Augusta sock

GREENVILLE, S.C. -- KENTWOOL - the 170-year-old, family-owned American textile innovator - announces that it will commemorate staff player Bubba Watson's inaugural major championship victory with the return of a limited-edition Tour Profile performance sock boasting a distinctive green base color highlighted by yellow heel and toe patterns with red brand accents.

During the 2013 Masters, Watson will once again compete in this distinctive style ($19.95) that will be available through May 15 while supplies last at www.KENTWOOLSocks.com. Crafted from a proprietary blend of fatigue-reducing merino wool and high-tech fibers for superior moisture management, the socks are Made in the USA and come with a 100 percent blister-free guarantee.

"This style became a sensation last year following Bubba's historic performance and sold out quicker that we ever expected," says Mark Kent, CEO and President of KENTWOOL. "With there being so much pent-up demand, we wanted to once again offer our loyal customers a chance to 'Rock the Socks' with a pair of their own."

An authentic southern textile company, KENTWOOL is devoted to helping golfers feel their best with every step. Each pair features WINDspun technology that infuses the fibers with air to provide unrivaled cushioning at micro-stress points along the foot, enhancing comfort and energy levels while reducing injury risk.

In addition to Watson, KENTWOOL socks - including Low Profile, Tour Profile, Tour Standard and 19th Hole models - are trusted by scores of Tour stars, including Matt Kuchar, Jonathan Byrd, Ryann O'Toole, Peter Jacobsen, Duffy Waldorf, Brendon de Jonge, Tom Gillis, Jane Park, Catriona Matthew, Charles Warren, Kevin Johnson, Kristy McPherson, Shasta Averyhardt, Jenny Suh, Sarah Kemp, Jenny Gleason, Meaghan Francella and Jenny Hong.

About KENTWOOL
Founded in 1843, KENTWOOL continues to be one of the nation's longest-running, family-owned textile companies. KENTWOOL is the only company in the western hemisphere - and one of 50 in the world - to receive the Usterized Quality Certification indicating the highest level of quality assurance in yarn production.

An avid golfer, KENTWOOL CEO Mark Kent had the idea to produce the "World's Best Golf Sock" after standing in the 18th fairway of the BMW Nationwide Tour Pro-Am tending to blistered, bleeding feet instead of concentrating on the eagle opportunity guaranteeing him a spot in the final round.

Born from that moment is golf's leading, premium merino wool golf sock. It enables golfers of all abilities to play their best while benefiting from abrasion and fatigue resistance, as well as KENTWOOL's blister-free guarantee. KENTWOOL utilizes its nearly two-century-old heritage of superiority in textiles to create socks which draw upon wool's natural and cool performance fibers for moisture management, sheer comfort and other performance-enhancing benefits.

Based in Greenville, SC, all KENTWOOL products are made in the USA.
