Galvin Green – Thorbjørn Olesen wins the Thailand Classic 2023 wearing VENTIL8 Plus
February 20, 2023 – Thorbjørn Olesen secured his seventh DP World Tour title, cruising to a four shot victory in the Thailand Classic just weeks after re-signing with Galvin Green, the leading high-performance apparel brand.
In hot and humid conditions, Olesen stayed cool wearing the new breathable MURPHY polo shirt in Navy/Orange, Navy NOAH trousers in lightweight VENTIL8 Plus stretch fabric that offer UV 20+ protection and a matching Navy WAVE belt.
The Murphy short sleeve polo shirt features an all-over floral print and contrasting collar and is part of the Galvin Green VENTIL8 Plus golf shirt range, a high-tech collection of performance driven shirts designed to be functional and stylish. The Murphy shirt is made from an extremely breathable fabric that is quick dry, ensuring you are comfortable on the golf course when it’s hot outside.
Starting the day two shots clear, Thorbjørn made birdies at the first, second and sixth to stretch his advantage early on at the Amata Spring CC in Bangkok, before three birdies on the spin from the 13th hole cemented his lead before finishing with a stunning bogey-free 66 to finish on 24-under par.
The win continues Olesen’s record of converting 54-hole leads into victories on the DP World Tour, having done so 85% of the time (six out of seven) following this weekend’s victory.
“I said when I re-signed with Galvin Green that I wanted to take my career another step forward and wearing the high-tech clothing, I genuinely believe it provides me with an edge on the golf course, especially on the back nine on a Sunday when the pressure is on,” said Thorbjørn Olesen.
“I felt really comfortable out here all week and my game has been trending in the right direction all season and I’m looking forward to seeing how far I can push on from here,” he added.
The victory catapults the 34-year-old Dane into the Top-100 on the Official World Golf Rankings, and into 5th place in the DP World Tour Race to Dubai list. In four starts this year, including the win in Thailand, he’s had a tied-fourth-place finish at the Ras Al Khaimah Championship, earlier this month, plus two top-20 finishes in January at the HSBC Abu Dhabi Championship (20th) and the Hero Dubai Desert Classic (16th).
“It’s great to see another Galvin Green player winning on the DP World Tour and we all congratulate Thorbjørn on his victory, but also the great start he’s had since coming back to the brand,” said Conor Petters, Marketing Manager UK & Ireland. “He’s a world-class player and we’re delighted to have him back on board in what could be a season to remember,” he added.
