Jamie Donaldson signs with J.Lindeberg

Jamie Donaldson has signed an exclusive three-year clothing deal with Swedish fashion house J.Lindeberg.

The Welshman will showcase the brand's full range of golf wear at tournaments all over the world, starting at this week's Abu Dhabi HSBC Golf Championship.

The 38-year-old recorded his first European Tour victory at the 2012 Irish Open and held off Justin Rose to claim last year's Abu Dhabi Championship.

Donaldson has a good chance of earning a place in Paul McGinley's European Ryder Cup team at Gleneagles this September.

"As a professional golfer it's essential I feel comfortable in my clothes," said Donaldson.

"What's more, the fabrics used in the J.Lindeberg range are technically advanced to ensure my body is at the ideal playing temperature and not hampered by changes in weather conditions.

"The opportunity to wear J.Lindeberg was one I welcomed, and I very much look forward to working with them over the next three years."

J. Lindeberg was founded in Sweden in 1996, with the vision to build an international brand for modern consumers.

Stefan Engstrom, CEO of J.Lindeberg, added:

"We are extremely excited to be associated with Jamie. His incredible passion for golf, his demeanour, both on and off the course, and his continued rise up through the world rankings makes it a perfect partnership."
