May 2012: Just as Druh Belts & Buckles has signed up major champion Sun Young Yoo as another member of its stable of brand ambassadors, the number one belt brand on tour is celebrating another major win following Roger Chapman’s victory on Sunday (May 27) at the first Senior major of the year, the US Senior PGA Championship at Harbor Shores.
South Korean professional Yoo secured at the Kraft Nabisco Championship in California back in April with an 18-foot birdie putt at the first play-off hole in the LPGA Tour’s first major of the season. Yoo overcame compatriot I K Kim to win her first major title and only her second tournament on the LPGA Tour.
“We are delighted to have Yoo in our stable of brand ambassadors as we have been looking for a lady pro to join the exalted company of ambassadors that we already have at Druh,” commented Simon Hurd, founder of Druh Belts & Buckles, which are already extremely popular in South Korea.
“Druh’s current ambassadors include the likes of English superstar Lee Westwood, former Ryder Cup star Paul McGinley, Sweden’s Robert Karlsson, Thomas Bjorn of Denmark and Thailand’s hottest golfer, Thongchai Jaidee so Yoo is in good company.”
Chapman, a long-time fan and wearer of Druh Belts & Buckles, has written himself into the history books as the first Englishman to win the Senior PGA Championship, the first European to capture the title since Jock Hutchinson in 1947, and only the seventh international player to have his name inscribed on to this particularly fine piece of golfing silverware.
A closing 72 for a 13-under-par 271 total gave the 53-year-old Chapman a two-stroke victory over American John Cook.
Chapman is a regular wearer of Druh’s popular range of leather belts recognised the world over their instantly-recognisable ‘db’ buckles. Numerous other professional golfers on both the men’s and ladies circuits favour Druh Belts both on and off the course, making the brand the number one belt on tour.
