Actors Edward Norton, Mark Paul-Gosselaar, Chicago Cubs owner Tom Rickets, tennis superstar Andy Roddick and country music star Jake Owen are among the luminaries who have become investors in William Murray Golf, a lifestyle and apparel brand developed with award-winning actor Bill Murray and his five brothers.
The company, which was founded in 2016, is launching its fall collection on Thursday, September 21; it will include jackets and pants, as will more traditional golf apparel. In addition, the line will also feature a fashion-forward performance blazer made for golf, which launches in November.
Other new investors in the line include real estate magnate Mike Meldman and jewelry designer Kendra Scott.
“My brothers and I are thrilled to have such a distinguished team of investors joining our team to assist in our rapid growth and disruption of the golf apparel market” said Murray Bros. LLC CEO Joel Murray. Aside from the increased exposure for the brand, we’re excited that our new partners all share in our collective vision for William Murray Golf, to change the way golfers look and feel on and off the course.”
Speaking on his participation in the funding, Jake Owen said, “I’m super excited to be a part of William Murray Golf, because they pay close attention to irreverence. But more importantly, their founders are a great group and want to have fun with the game of golf while making it more appealing to a wider audience.”
