Levelwear adds Grillo to growing stable of PGA TOUR athletes
Canadian apparel brand Levelwear has announced the addition of Top 50 golfer in the World, Emiliano Grillo to their growing stable of PGA TOUR athletes. The multi-year agreement will see Grillo wear Levelwear’s premium collection of polos, pullovers, and pants while competing on the PGA TOUR alongside fellow ambassadors Adam Hadwin, Corey Conners and Ted Potter Jr.
“I saw other PGA TOUR players wearing the product and always thought it was very sharp,” said Grillo. “In the off season, I had the chance to review a number of opportunities and the Levelwear product stood out the most. The product fits me very well and is extremely comfortable to play in no matter the conditions. They have engineered a lot of performance features and styling into the product that I am really enjoying and that I know will assist in elevating my game this year. I am very excited to partner with Levelwear as we both look to achieve new heights in 2019 and beyond.”
This signing signifies the rapid assentation to the upper echelon of the golf apparel landscape for Levelwear. Along with newly formed relationships with the PGA TOUR, the PGA of America, Golf Canada and sponsorships of several top events on TOUR like the newly established Rocket Mortgage Classic, the RBC Canadian Open, among others, Levelwear will have a retail presence at roughly 23 PGA TOUR events this season including two Majors. Additionally Levelwear maintains strong retail relationships with roughly 75 of the top 100 golf clubs throughout North America and can be found at top clubs and resorts coast-to-coast.
“Emiliano is an athlete that we see aligning perfectly with the direction of the Levelwear brand,” added Levelwear President, Hilton Ngo. “He is young, athletic, wears the product beautifully and his world-class game and exciting personality makes him one of the most electrifying players to watch week in and week out. When we engaged his team about the potential partnership it was clear that he was the right guy for us and we couldn’t be more excited to have him as part of the team for years to come.”
Grillo, who was the 2016 Rookie of the Year on the PGA TOUR and who represented his home country of Argentina in the Olympics the same year, now enters his 4th full season on the PGA TOUR. Coming off of a solid 2018 campaign that saw him earn 8 top-10 finishes in 27 events while only missing 2 cuts, he is poised to make the 2019 season his best yet. Already starting the year with runner up finishes at the CIMB Classic and QBE shootout with partner Graham McDowell, Grillo will be looking to add to his 3 professional win total in 2019. His premiere schedule will see him compete in the best events and against the best players every time he tees it up and as a top 50 Player in the Official World Golf Rankings, he has secured his invitation to the 2019 Masters. Grillo will debut the 2019 Levelwear collection at this week’s Farmers Insurance Open.
