Golf Enthusiasts Gotta Look Good

As much as golf is an outdoorsy and somewhat leisurely sport, its players are very serious about proper attire when playing. There’s no uniform of course, but looking like a tall, cool glass of gin and tonic is preferred. That’s why fashion is so important on the links.

Venice, Calif.-based ad agency  Zambezi has created an online and print campaign for golf apparel brand Ashworth, part of the TaylorMade Apparel Group. On March 23, the agency and the client launched a “magalogue” in print and a digital version online called “Golf/Man” to engage with the modern casual golfer.

As AOR for TaylorMade and Ashworth, Zambezi made the brand as much about lifestyle as about the game. The publication chronicles days in the life of the brand’s marquis professional athlete, Justin Rose, as he plays top golf courses around the world. The first issue follows Justin playing Streamsong, a luxury resort in Florida. The hard-copy and online publications are both very image-heavy with photos of Justin, wearing Ashworth attire.

Zambezi and Ashworth published this rather upscale book of scenic photography, printed on heavy paper stock, thinking it was an innovative way to position this niche brand before a discerning audience.
