Jack NicklausCoinciding with the kickoff of the 2018 golf season, headwear, apparel and accessories brand Ahead has launched its new Jack Nicklaus Majors collection. In partnership with the Nicklaus Companies, the new headwear collection features four caps created as a tribute to the game’s most decorated champion.

Now available for purchase online, the collection’s cotton caps feature the iconic Golden Bear logo on the front and all four are available in different styles and colors – Georgia green, marigold, black, and tan. The caps are a nod to Nicklaus’ impressive career record as a major Championship winner. In addition to his six Masters’ titles, Nicklaus won five PGA Championships, four U.S. Open Championships, and three Open Championships.

“AHead has had the distinction of being a partner with Mr. Nicklaus for more than 15 years and this new Collection represents another special moment in our relationship,” said Anne Broholm, CEO of Ahead. “No pun intended, but a tip of the cap goes out to our friends with The Nicklaus Companies for initiating this idea. We are thrilled with the way the collection looks, and we are confident the hats will be very popular, especially as the major season kicks off.”

“The concept for the collection started out as a fun idea over the winter and a few months later, we couldn’t be happier with the end product,” added Andy O’Brien, senior vice president of marketing and licensing for The Nicklaus Companies. “These caps are a wonderful tribute to Jack’s distinguished career and his focus on the majors, and we thank the team at Ahead for turning concept into reality.”

Ahead’s complete line of Nicklaus headwear, including the new Majors collection, are available for purchase at the company’s online shop.
