KENTWOOL Staff Player Bubba Watson captures Northern Trust Open

GREENVILLE, S.C. -- KENTWOOL - the 170-year-old, family-owned American textile innovator - confirms Bubba Watson competed in its Tour Profile performance golf socks en route to capturing the PGA Tour's Northern Trust Open this past weekend at Riviera Country Club in Pacific Palisades, California.

Relying on KENTWOOL's fatigue-reducing, proprietary blend of air-infused merino wool, Watson fired back-to-back, bogey-free closing rounds of 64 to finish at 15-under-par. To put an exclamation mark on his stellar play, the 35-year-old birdied the final hole to clinch his first victory since the 2012 Masters.

"After several strong finishes, it was just a matter a time before Bubba won again," says Mark Kent, President and CEO of KENTWOOL. "It is terrific to see him back in the winner's circle and enjoying such positive momentum as the 2014 season gets underway."

Crafted 100-percent in the USA and featuring WINDspun technology, KENTWOOL performance golf socks create an innovative, micro-climate system that wick moisture and provide superior odor control. This creates unrivaled cushioning at micro-stress points along the foot, enhancing comfort and energy levels while reducing injury risk.

Retailing from $19.95 to $40.00, the full KENTWOOL line includes the new KW Series Pro Light and Sport models in addition to the brand's signature Tour Profile, Low Profile, Tour Standard, The Graduate and 19th Hole designs.

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

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.
