Golf Refugees have been contacted by a senior consultant at IMG Golf, politely asking us not to use an image of Tiger Woods for our new ‘anger rehab’ 2011 collection. Our intention was to use a silhouette of a golfer, but they still feel ‘people’ will be able to recognise the image as TW. The above image has been slightly darkened; please let us know if you still feel this is a recognisable image?

We did try to point out that Tiger would not be a good role model for our brand as Golf Refugees are an eco brand. And took the opportunity to ask IMG if they had any professional golfers on their books who would be interested in wearing ethically made, carbon neutral golf apparel.

Such golfers would be provided with information on how and where our golf apparel is made with assurances that Golf Refugees do not use sweatshops.
