My ancestors can be traced back to 13th Century Scotland. They were a proud warrior clan that helped win independence. Their motto of Win or Die conveyed their life and death struggle to be free and true to their beliefs. Thankfully these days, things are less black and white, but I still try to live by the spirit of these words each day. I believe that if something is worth doing, it’s worth doing to the best of my ability. I always go into each tournament believing I have a chance of winning. There’s just no point turning up otherwise.
Ever since I was young, I dreamed of playing with the golfing greats and winning trophies. Fortunately, things worked out far better than I could ever have imagined. Without a doubt, the two biggest highlights of my career so far were winning the US Open and winning the Ryder Cup with my European team mates. And after my finish to 2012 I’m excited about this 2013 season.
When I first learnt that my family motto was ‘Win or Die’ I was moved by the power of these simple words.
It’s no secret that I’m very particular about what I wear. Over the years, I’ve built up quite a collection of beautifully crafted pieces. When it came to developing my own range, I was determined that it would meet the same standards. I collaborated with the finest craftsmen and tailors to ensure an exceptional focus on cut, details and fabrics, while also giving a nod to my trademark modern vintage style.
Everything in the range revolves around three main principles; superior craftsmanship, performance fabrics and innovative design. Our quest to find the best fabrics took us to the US, Britain, Italy, Portugal and Asia, where we hand selected the highest quality yarns. Responsive, lightweight, intuitive to your every movement, yet strong enough to withstand any climate.
