MANCHESTER’S Tom Murray has signed up with Bunker Mentality, one of Europe’s most fashionable golf brands.
The 26-year-old son of former Panasonic European Open champion and Senior Tour player Andrew, won his first professional title at the Volopa Irish Challenge 2015 and will wear Bunker Mentality in all of his competitive events on the Challenge and European tours this season.
Robert Hart, owner and creative director at Bunker Mentality commented: “As soon as we met Tom we knew he was the perfect fit for the brand. He loves fashion and really does have a ‘Bunker Mentality.’ We are truly excited by the prospect of working with Tom as we continue to develop a style that is the epitome of modern British golf.”
“I’m really excited about joining the team at Bunker Mentality,” said Murray. “The attitude and style of the brand is a perfect match for me and the owners are so professional. When I met with the team, they emphasised that the brand is 100 per cent golf and that is where I am right now. I’m totally focused on my golf and Bunker will help me get the best out of my game by looking great and feeling great on the course. I love that it is a British independent golf brand, which makes it even more special.”
Hart added: “Tom is our third tour pro. We already work very closely with Simon Dyson and young Jazz Janewatttananond based out of Thailand. This means we have our own ‘Team Bunker’ on the tour at various levels so allowing us to push the golf fashion envelope even further creating our vision of modern British golf.”
