To Compete in Premium Performance Golf Sock, Display Brand Logo on Headwear, BagKENTWOOL – the world’s premier textile innovator and maker of premium, performance socks specifically engineered for golfers – adds LPGA Tour star Jane Park to its team of formidable players.
As part of a multi-year agreement, Park will compete in KENTWOOL’s luxurious merino wool women’s golf socks and display the brand’s logo on her headwear and bag. The 23-year-old American will appear in company marketing initiatives and on www.kentwool.com/shop.

KENTWOOL Golf Socks maximize foot comfort, increase energy levels and boost on-course performance by combining fine merino wool and the company’s "WINDspun” air-infused technology. A proprietary blend of natural and high-tech fibers help KENTWOOL Golf Socks create an innovative, micro-climate system for superior moisture management and wicking, as well as odor control.
Enhanced cushioning at strategic micro-stress points along the foot result in unrivalled, abrasion-proof comfort round after round. Sophisticatedly-engineered heel, toe and bridge elements designed with advanced reinforcement provide maximum support and protection against injury.
