The four-time European Tour winner Simon Dyson took third place in the BMW PGA Championship at the end of last month, but what was really notable was his apparel. His golf clothes bore the branding of his favorite football team, Manchester United. The new football-inspired golf range was produced by Nike Golf to celebrate its sponsorship of teams across Europe. A full range will be out this autumn, including football-branded shoes, polo shirts and golf bags. In this month's Italian Open, Francesco Molinari will wear clothes featuring the logo of Inter Milan. Other teams that Nike sponsors include Barcelona, Arsenal, Juventus and Celtic. The footballers will wear the special gear when they hit the golf course as well. The footwear and bag goes on sale in pro shops and retailers from November, but the apparel will be sold only at football club stores and online channels including www.nikestore.com in the initial launch phase.
