The launch comes on the actor’s 66th birthday and his fans should be thanking him already for his gift to the sport. (RELATED: Bill Murray Bartends At His Son’s Bar In Brooklyn)
His new lifestyle and apparel brand “seeks to embody Murray’s irreverent approach to golf,” according to Golf Digest. The William Murray Golf logo is a representation of the actor “tossing his putter in feign disgust at the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am, an image that speaks to Murray’s unpredictable but undeniable passion for golf.”
Only a few limited items are available for purchase now, including a Chicago Cubs inspired pin-striped golf shirt. Murray is a baseball enthusiast as well as one of golf. The full apparel line will launch on October 20.
John Resig, who is in partnership with the Murray Brothers on the project, told Golf Digest the idea just seems right. “He’s a film icon but he’s also synonymous with golf, and golf needs more fun in it,” Resig said. “You can argue that golf needs Bill Murray now more than ever.”
And we couldn’t agree more.
“He got all of that one!”
