My mother always told me as a young boy. She would say “Son… if you persevere it’ll pay.” Looking at Ryan Armour you could say that this saying could very well apply to him. Recently in Jackson, Mississippi at the Sanderson Farms Championship the 41 year old journeyman broke through for his first career win. Armour plays a mixed bag of TaylorMade Golf, PXG, Titleist and Scotty Cameron products. All of this while wearing Antigua Sportswear.
Antigua shared a press release with media and Mary Beth Lacy of golf public relations firm Mary Beth Lacy Inc shared the release with me to pass on to my audience. Please see below.
