The company’s expanded sponsorship deal with Simpson will kick off during The 146th Open this week at Royal Birkdale in England, according to a news release. In addition to sporting the Burns & Wilcox logo on his golf shirt, Simpson will now have the logo on his golf bag. His caddy’s hat will also continue to feature the logo.

Simpson, a four-time PGA winner, became Burns & Wilcox’s second golf brand ambassador, alongside PGA champion Jimmy Walter, in 2017.

“The immense support Burns & Wilcox has shown exemplifies the true meaning of teamwork,” Simpson said. “It is gratifying to be involved with a company that has the same unwavering dedication to excellence as I do on the course.”
