In the 60s Lyle & Scott launched the golf wear range, a move that coincided with the design of the now iconic Golden Eagle motif. The Eagle represents not only the brands reputation for reliability and quality but is also, of course, a golfing term for achieving two shots below par. This new relationship with golf brought yet more exposure on the global stage, with charasmatic golfers like Gary Player and Tony Jacklin as well as A-list golf fans like Bob Hope and Bing Crosby sporting Hawick's finest.
Reinforcing our position as the original golf brand, Greg "The Shark" Norman wearing a now iconic geometric Lyle & Scott jumper, emphatically won the '86 Open Championship at Turnberry. Affection for Lyle & Scott amongst celebrity golf enthusiasts continues with Ronnie Corbett and Sean Connery donning the Golden Eagle.
