  • LPGA Hall of Famers, Karrie Webb and Laura Davies
From a NSW perspective, Australian Amateur Champion and State Team member, Matt Stieger and fellow National and NSW Squad member, Brett Drewitt play exclusively with Srixon equipment. The new arrangement with Srixon has resulted in both parties seeking to making a bold statement about the high regard and respect that we have for each of our businesses, together with the willingness and commitment to grow that over the foreseeable future said Golf NSW Chairman, Chris Allen. Srixon are a highly visible brand in golf and we are delighted to have come to a significantly different arrangement with them for at least the next 3 years, which will provide even greater assistance and support to our State Teams, our identified High Performance program, as well as allowing us to deliver on our overall initiatives to foster the game at all levels he added. Srixon Sports Australasia Managing Director, Martin Wright, agreed with Mr Allen and added Our new arrangement with Golf NSW has been the culmination of sharing and discussing our business objectives and then working in a highly co-operative manner with the intentions of reaching and exceeding those objectives, which Golf NSW have demonstrated in a most supportive and productive way. We are excited about the future for Srixon and by becoming a Major Supporting Partner clearly demonstrates our intentions to continue our efforts to be the product of choice in the NSW golf market , he said. By becoming a Major Supporting Partner of Golf NSW, not only does Srixon join other notable businesses, Coca-Cola Amatil and business equipment supplier, Imagetec, but the brand will be incorporated on all Golf NSW collateral including website, the Drop Zone e-newsletter and stationery items.
