As mentioned on the day, that very morning Myeloma UK has just funded my Dad to go on a Clinical Trial for a treatment which will hopefully improve his Cancer Markers better than his 4 previous treatments. A special thanks to Gross Winner Sam Sanghera who very kindly put his prize up for auction on the night with all proceeds going to charity. Thank you, Sam”.

It was great to see so many people representing Eagle Apparel Golf on the day. We also saw a lot of our new Pimento Cheese Sandwich collection on show. The launch was well received and the feedback we had on the new collection was that it was so subtle not many realised that the icons on the clothing were the Pimento Pepper, Cheese, Masters Cup, and White Bread. You can see them below. The subtle touch makes for a clean design and is a nod to the famous Pimento Cheese Sandwich that you see being served at Augusta National in April.Previous
You can still shop for the new collection via the link here. We have limited sizes left so be sure to secure your size before it’s too late.
Congratulations to Jon Rahm on winning The Masters after a long weekend of crazy weather prolonging the rounds. It’s great to see another winner from Europe taking home the Green Jacket.
