Brooks Koepka's LIV Golf team, Smash GC, have announced their partnership with golf apparel brand Bald Head Blues. 

The side, who are currently second from bottom in the breakaway golf league's standings, will join forces with the North Carolina based brand for the remainder of the 2023 campaign. 

While their captain, Koepka, is contracted to wear Nike, his brother Chase, and Jason Kokrak will both wear the lifestyle brand during the five remaining LIV events at Greenbrier, Bedminster, Chicago, Jeddah and Miami. 

Matt Wolff is the fourth member of the team and like the 2023 PGA Championship winner, is also contracted to wear Nike apparel.

Kokrak has already been seen sporting a Bald Head Blues polo shirt with the Smash GC logo embroidered on it at LIV Golf Andalucia which was held at Valdarrama at the beginning of July.

Established over 30 years ago by the Pope family, the brand says their apparel designs are borne of the unique lifestyle that is found on Bald Head Island in North Carolina. 

The only means means of transportation around the 15km square archipelago are golf carts, with residents weaving their way around untouched marshes, beaches and maritime forests on the buggys.

Bald Head Blues' claim their iconic logo takes inspiration from the casual lifestyle and surfing culture on the island. It features a golf cart holding a surfboard on its roof.

“I’m very excited to be adding Bald Head Blues to the Smash GC family as our first official partner," Jason Kokrak said.
