Lee Westwood teams up with sunglass manufacturer Bolle

By: | Fri 05 Oct 2012

Bushnell Eyewear announced today that the professional golfer Lee Westwood has signed a two-year global sponsorship agreement to wear Bollé sunglasses.

Wearing the model Bolt, he will be a perfect ambassador for Bollé and its V3 lens which has been specifically designed for golf.

“Precision is the major asset in golf. Vision must be perfect, whatever the weather conditions. A high degree of concentration is essential and seeing better and therefore being able to adjust better can only be of benefit. Eyewear must be lightweight and cover the eyes well, whilst allowing the skin to breathe to avoid mist and sweat. What my Bollé® eyewear also offers is better reading of distances, thus improving my choice of club. The Photo V3 Golf lens, which is brown tinted, lightens and darkens according to light conditions and, above all, decodes relief perfectly.” said Lee Westwood.

I never underestimate the damage that can be caused by exposure to the sun whilst I’m out on the course but I know that my eyes are getting the very best protection from my Bollés. Bollé’s technical expertise, reputation and of course fantastic looking product makes them an easy choice for me to wear.” he added.

Olivier Ciaravino, President of the Bushnell Eyewear Division commented “Lee Westwood signing is fantastic for our brand. The fact that such a great champion chooses Bollé as part of his game is a tribute to the commitment of the brand in Golf and its very highly technical products. This is also in line with the Bollé strategy to sponsor great athletes in our core sport activities and involve them in the development of our range. Lee will be provided with the best, state-of-the-art technology that represents Bollé’s legendary expertise.”

Model Bolt and the Photo V3 Golf lens:

New from Bollé®, the exclusive Photochromic V3 Golf lens synthesizes all you need in a golf lens: the optical superiority and lightweight characteristics of crystal Clear precision optics, hydrophobic outside and anti-fog inside coatings to keep your view moisture free. It also features a finely tuned brown lens that highlights subtleties on the course while lightening and darkening to adapt to your environment. The lens does it all for you, letting you keep your focus on the ball.
