(Miami, FL, January 10, 2022) — Original Penguin Golf, a division of Perry Ellis International, Inc., congratulates brand ambassador Cameron Smith for winning the 2022 Sentry Tournament of Champions for his fourth PGA Tour victory.
“We congratulate Cameron for winning in wire-to-wire fashion and for smashing the PGA Tour scoring record with a 34 under par total,” said Oscar Feldenkreis, President and CEO of Perry Ellis International. “With victories in back-to-back years, he has solidified himself as an international star and one who rises to the occasion when the pressure is the greatest. We are proud to have Cameron as an Original Penguin brand ambassador.”
“It was an unreal round and week and one which I will never forget,” stated Smith. “I feel like I had a really good rest and didn’t play much in the fall. It was nice to kind of see where my game’s at against some of the best players in the world. I’ve been working hard and it’s paid off early in the season.”
With the win, Smith jumps up to third in the FedExCup standings and tenth in the Official World Golf Rankings. “It took me a while to get into the top 20, so it’s really cool,” Smith said after raising the trophy at Kapalua. “That was one of my goals this year, to get into the top 10. It’s nice that that’s done and dusted. Hopefully, I can keep cruising up those world rankings.”
For the record-setting week, Cameron wore Original Penguin’s golf collection featuring its new Re-Originals sustainable fabrication. These eco-friendly polos are crafted with 30% recycled polyester and use a double-knit high-gauge fabrication for superior performance and aesthetics. Pairing these elevated materials with OPG’s modern tailored fit, Cameron delivered a winning look on and off the course.
For over 60 years Original Penguin, and its namesake icon Pete, the Penguin, has been adorned and adored by the masters of leisure and sport to define itself as an American classic.
Today, the Penguin icon still stands as a signal for those who know how to be an original and what you wear for the good times.
