Bubba Watson wears KENTWOOL Tour Profile golf socks
Jun '10
KENTWOOL -- the world's premier textile innovator and maker of premium, performance socks specifically engineered for golfers -- confirms Bubba Watson wore its KENTWOOL Tour Profile golf socks en route to his first PGA Tour victory at the Travelers Championship in Cromwell, CT.

Watson relied on KENTWOOL's proprietary, blister-free, fatigue-reducing performance yarns to stay dry and comfortable, overcoming a six-stroke deficit and defeating U.S. Ryder Cup Captain Corey Pavin and veteran Scott Verplank on the second sudden-death hole.

"KENTWOOL socks are the most comfortable socks I've ever worn," says Watson.

The win earned the 31-year-old $1.08 million and moved him into eighth place in the FedEx Cup rankings.

"We are thrilled to see Bubba break through as he greatly deserves it," says Mark Kent, President and CEO of KENTWOOL. "We're also gratified KENTWOOL socks played a role, allowing Bubba to think about his game, not his feet, all week and during the pressure-packed playoff."

KENTWOOL Golf Socks maximize foot comfort, increase energy levels and boost on-course performance, thanks to fine merino wool resulting from its "WINDspun" air-infused technology. A proprietary blend of natural and high-tech fibers help KENTWOOL Golf Socks create an innovative, micro-climate system for superior moisture management and wicking, as well as odor control.

Enhanced cushioning at strategic micro-stress points along the foot result in unrivalled, abrasion-proof comfort round after round. Sophisticatedly-engineered heel, toe and bridge elements designed with advanced reinforcement provide maximum support and protection against injury.

The ankle-length Tour Profile and longer Tour Standard are available in natural or khaki, and tan and black, respectively, at select green-grass locations.

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.
