To commemorate Fred Couples' induction into the World Golf Hall of Fame on May 6, Ashworth will release 300 individually numbered Fred Couples edition shirts.
Each shirt in the collection will be numbered inside the placket, with Couples receiving the first shirt (1/300). According to Ashworth, the color of blue (azure) is Couples' favorite and features double-knit EZ-TEC2 performance fabric.
“When you think of Ashworth, you immediately think style and of course Fred Couples,” said Susan Bush, VP of Ashworth. “We are very excited for Fred to be inducted into the World Golf Hall of Fame and are extremely honored to create a special shirt that truly reflects his personality and favorite elements.”
The shirt also features Couples' signature in green on the inside neck and green thread on the top button of the placket in honor of his 1992 Masters victory.
