BALD HEAD ISLAND, NC – May 15, 2019 – Bald Head Blues, a golf and island-inspired apparel company, distinguished by its golf cart with surfboard logo, announced today that company brand ambassador, Joel Dahmen, fresh off a hot week at the Wells Fargo Championship, will be teeing it up at the upcoming PGA Championship, donning Bald Head Blues.
“Joel is playing some pretty inspired golf, actually he is on a hot streak. At the Wells Fargo Championship, he shot two consecutive rounds of 66 and captured a runner-up position, just three strokes from the winner. Our team is extremely proud of him, and can’t wait to see him navigate Bethpage Black. We believe with his level of accuracy off the tee, we’re going to see some of his best golf yet,” commented Bald Head Blues Founder & CEO, Claude Pope.
In Dahmen’s quest for the Wannamaker Trophy, he will be sporting apparel from Bald Head Blues’ Spring Collection. To combat some of the upcoming inclement weather, he will be wearing the company’s signature performance “Quarter Zip” jacket. He will also wear the highly popular, Albatross Polo golf shirt, in a variety of colors. The Albatross Polo golf shirt features ComfortDry Technology, which is lightweight, promotes moisture wicking, and has a 4-way stretch for ultimate performance. All of Dahmen’s apparel will be embroidered with the Bald Head Blues distinct logo.
Dahmen has enjoyed a successful 2019 PGA TOUR season with his runner-up position at the Wells Fargo, which allowed him to compete at the PGA Championship, but it also secured his 2020 PGA TOUR card. His high level of play also captured a T-9 finish at the Farmers Insurance and a T-12 finish at the Players Championship. He is currently ranked #32 in the Fed Ex Cup points and has won over 1.7 million in prize money.
These notable finishes, and Dahmen’s overall success this season can be attributed to his driving accuracy. He is currently ranked #20th on the PGA TOUR in driving accuracy.
“Bethpage has some pretty difficult rough, imposing bunkers, and awkward angles, but look for Joel to be in the middle of the fairway,” added Pope.
In 2018, Dahmen signed a two year Bald Head Blues endorsement deal. Since joining the Bald Head Blues team, he is playing some of the best golf of his career.
About Bald Head Blues
“Clothing for Coasting”

It’s a special place where nature’s abundance and casual lifestyle inspired the formation of Bald Head Blues. An apparel company that embraces the island’s extraordinary experience.
Unique to the island is its mode of transportation.

This island lifestyle where a quick ride to the beach becomes an adventure is represented by the Bald Head Blues logo.
All pieces in the Bald Head Blues Collections are fun, casual, colorful and classic. They employ high-performance fabrics, refined designs and an inimitable attention to details. The new 2019 Spring Collection which includes Aruba, Coral, Lavender, Regatta, and Spring magnify the island’s vibrant colors. Each series is bold, fresh, and energetic.
Bald Head Blues is known for their coastal and island style but their collections also incorporate technology like “Comfort Flex” which combines Pima cotton with the performance and stretch of spandex.
