    Golf Tech joins the leading English golf importer “World Wide Golf Brands” in England. (https://www.linkedin.com/company/worldwide-golf-brands-ltd/about/). This was done with the clear aim of expanding the market position in the UK even further after Brexit.

    It was decided without further ado to seize the opportunity and strengthen and expand resources together with the leading English supplier and producer of golf and functional clothing, Oskar Jacobsen Golf (https://www.oscarjacobsongolf.co.uk/), Stuburt Golf https://stuburt.com/ and the owner of the traditional brand Mac Gregor, formerly owned by Greg Norman.
