CREST LINK the right fit for Emirates Australian Open

Golf apparel company CREST LINK will be the official apparel partner for this year’s Emirates Australian Open.

An established brand for many years, the Malaysian company is looking to further increase its presence Down Under and views Australia’s national championship as the perfect event with which to be associated.

The Emirates Australian Open tees off at The Australian Golf Club in Sydney from November 26-29 and boasts prize money of $A1.25million.

Jointly sanctioned by OneAsia and the PGA Tour of Australasia, the prestigious event recently confirmed that defending champion Jordan Spieth, from the United States, and Australian Adam Scott, the 2009 champion, will compete again.

Spieth’s addition to the event is a magnificent development as this year he triumphed in the first two major championships — the Masters and US Open – before tying for fourth in the recent Open Championship.

“This represents an exciting opportunity for CREST LINK to promote our brand,” said Raymond Yee, managing director for CREST LINK.

“The Emirates Australian Open is a world-class event and attracts the best players in the world and we are truly looking forward to this partnership.”

CREST LINK has strong ties with tours and players in the region and boasts a wealth of top brand ambassadors such as Australians Adam Crawford, former Australian Open champ Stephen Allan and Craig Hancock and Irishmen Damien McGrane and Peter Lawrie.

Also part of the stable are Thailand’s Thaworn Wiratchant, New Zealand’s Michael Campbell, Singapore’s Choo Tze Huang, Filipinos Frankie Minoza and Antonio Lascuna, and Malaysians Shaaban Hussin and Sukree Othman.

“Our products are a perfect for Australian golfers as they offer efficient moisture absorption and evaporation – a smooth and much lighter feel compared to traditional golf apparel materials – thanks to our innovation of Micro-Dri,” Yee said.

“This in return helps golfers to better perform.

"Some of our other innovations include Micro-Dri A-Vent, which keeps golfers cool and dry at all time; Micro-Dri UV, which provides protection against harmful UV rays; and COMP-TECH, which helps to increase blood flow to the arms and reduce soreness as well as fatigue.

“We believe our products put golfers and performance first beyond anything – this is because we are golfers, too.”

“We have enjoyed an excellent relationship with CREST LINK for many seasons at a wide variety of our events and so it is outstanding to see them now become involved with Australia’s premier golf tournament,” said Mark Hardess, President ASEAN & Australia, World Sport Group, the promoter of the Emirates Australian Open.

As the exclusive apparel partner, CREST LINK will provide attire to all officials and event staff, as well as supplying Pro Am apparel.

Crest Link apparel also comes in fashionable colours and designs to suit all golfers.
