Jones Global Sports, a leading golf and lifestyle apparel company, announced on 18 September 2018 that Ernie had been chosen to become a global ambassador for the Bobby Jones and Sunice brands.
As the official apparel partner, Jones Global Sports will work closely with Els on his competitive attire as well as his off the course style using selections from both the Bobby Jones and Sunice brands.
“We are very excited to have Ernie join us as a brand ambassador and become his official apparel provider,” said Andy Bell, President and CEO of Jones Global Sports. “Obviously Ernie has an incredible career on the golf course but his work off the golf course and in the community are equally important to us. Ernie has those important qualities about him that so closely align with the legacy of Bobby Jones. With our continued march towards global expansion of the Bobby Jones brand, there was an easy, natural fit with Ernie….no pun intended. Given his respect for the game and Mr. Jones, we know he will be a great brand ambassador for us throughout the world.”
“I’ve been familiar with the Bobby Jones brand for a long time, seeing the clothes in high-end pro shops around the world and actually I’ve owned quite a few of their garments over the years,” commented Ernie. “I’ve always been impressed with the look and feel of the clothing. I mean, you literally feel the quality. This is really the kind of partnership that I can appreciate on a number of levels, not least the commitment by the team at Jones Global Sports to support The Els for Autism Foundation, which we greatly appreciate. I must say, wearing Bobby Jones and Sunice apparel is going to be a nice way for me to get the new 2018/19 season started and I know this is a partnership I’m going to enjoy.”
As part of the agreement, Jones Global Sports will be making significant contributions to the Els for Autism Foundation and supporting their fund-raising efforts around the globe. “The Els for Autism Foundation is so clear in their purpose and does amazing work” said Bell. “We’re excited to play a small role in that work and use our direct to consumer platform to help draw attention to the Foundation and raise the money they need to continue their efforts.”
