Bjørn, Denmark’s most successful professional golfer with nine European Tour titles to his name, joins fellow Ryder Cup star Paul McGinley, 2008 European Order of Merit winner and 2010 Qatar Masters champion Robert Karlsson and the 2009 Asian Tour Order of Merit winner, Thongchai Jaidee of Thailand, among Druh ambassadors.

Since the start of the golf season, Bjørn has begun to show a return to the form that secured him fifth and sixth positions in the European Tour Order of Merit in 2000 and 1998 respectively, and at the end of last year was in contention for his tenth European Tour title, finishing tied third at the Open de Espana.

“As a professional it’s important to look smart both on and off the golf course and by wearing Druh Belts & Buckles, I feel confident that I am achieving this by complementing my golf gear with a stylish, yet practical fashion accessory,” says Bjørn.

Druh offers a selection of stylish handmade leather and snakeskin belts in sumptuous classic and chic casual styles and can now boast six Major winners, two current Ryder Cup players, 60 European Tour players and over 50 Asian Tour players all sporting Druh Belts & Buckles.

Other well-known professionals wearing the brand are Englishmen David Howell, Graeme Storm and Ross McGowan and Asian stars Gaganjeet Bhullar and Rahil Gangjee of India and big-hitting Thai Chapchai Nirat, holder of the Asian Tour 72-hole soring record with a 32-under-par 256 at the 2009 SAIL Open.

The Druh leather belt range is handmade in ten water snakeskins, ranging from turquoise to pink and 15 leathers in different embossed styles, from crocodile to ostrich effect. The interchangeable buckles in brushed nickel, polished silver or gold mean the belts can be customised to look smart on or off the course, and allow golfers to design a unique belt by choosing their own belt and buckle combination.

Druh Belts retail at US$200 (£130) for snakeskin and $100 (£65) for leather.The company guarantees that the snakes used in production are not from protected species.

Druh Belts & Buckles are available through The Golf Business, or for further information visit
