With two G/FORE ambassadors part of team USA’s defense of the Ryder Cup, the luxury golf-inspired sportswear and accessories brand is set to feature heavily during this week’s much anticipated biennial event at Le Golf National, Paris with Bubba Watson and Phil Mickelson both sporting some eye-catching customised G/FORE shoes.
Following a magnificent season that has seen him on the PGA Tour winners’ podium on three separate occasions at Genesis Open, World Golf Championships-Dell Technologies Match Play and Travelers Championship, Bubba makes a hard-fought return to Ryder Cup action after playing the role of vice-captain two years ago at Hazeltine.
When he walks into the cauldron of the first tee on Friday, Bubba will be sporting a pair of custom G/FORE high-top Disruptors adorned with the stars and stripes as well as a custom red G/FORE glove design from the brand’s Collection range.
A captain’s pick following a stellar season that included an impressive victory at the World Golf Championships-Mexico Championship, Phil Mickelson is making a record twelfth Ryder Cup appearance at Le Golf National and following victory two years ago will be looking for a successful defense and a first personal win on foreign soil.
Style personified, Phil will certainly look the part in Paris when he takes to the course in a custom Ryder Cup themed pair of G/FORE Saddle Gallivanter golf shoes.
Whilst these exact shoes aren’t on general sale, you can purchase the Disruptor and Gallivanter styles that Bubba and Phil’s custom Ryder Cup shoes are modelled on at www.gfore.com.

Mossimo Giannulli, who is married to Full House and Summerland actress Lori Loughlin, founded G/FORE in 2011 after becoming frustrated in his search for colourful and functional golf gloves.
A fashion industry veteran and avid golfer, Giannulli founded the billion-dollar clothing company Mossimo Inc in 1987 and brokered a first-ever designer-exclusive distribution deal with Minneapolis-based Target Stores in 2000. G/FORE embodies Giannulli’s expertise in fashion, passion for golf, and dedication to creating products of unmatched performance and unparalleled style.
G/FORE’s reputation is now established among the most innovative brands in golf fashion with its wide range of premium golf shoes, apparel and accessories for both men and women.
In spring 2016, Bubba Watson joined G/FORE’s line-up of elite ambassadors, while fellow multiple Major champion Phil Mickelson has also chosen to wear the brand’s footwear. Rising European star Thomas Detry is also among the growing list of professional golfers in the G/FORE ranks. Musician, actor and keen amateur golfer Justin Timberlake is also a confirmed G/FORE admirer.
The G/FORE brand was acquired by Peter Millar in January 2018.
