Adam Scott Poised To Break Out After Masters Win; Uniqlo Scores With Recent Deal
Published April 15, 2013
PERFECT TIMING: The WALL STREET JOURNAL’s Daisuke Wakabayashi writes Scott’s victory was “also a big win” for Japan-based clothing brand Uniqlo, which signed Scott as brand ambassador last Tuesday, “just a few days before the Masters began.” Scott will wear Uniqlo “in all competitions and participate in promotions for the company, including the launch of a global polo shirt campaign in mid-April.” The timing “couldn’t be better for Uniqlo, which is trying to build its image outside Japan.” The company “already has athletic-wear sponsorship deals” with tennis players Novak Djokovic and Kei Nishikori (WSJ.com, 4/15).
