In 1949 Gymphlex supplied both the British and USA Ryder Cup teams. Both teams were wearing our windcheater jacket which was also worn by other top clubs such as Arsenal FC, Liverpool FC and Leicester City FC.
This prestigious event was held at the Ganton Golf Club in Scarborough, North Yorkshire, England.
Britain led 3 to 1 after the first day, but the U.S. won 6 of 8 matches in singles on Saturday to keep the Cup.
The United States team won the competition by a score of 7 to 5 points.
Inspired by our past we have recreated 2 great garments so that we can once again bring the windercheater back to life! We have a training jacket and a 2-colour training jacket which can be viewed below.
