The Open de España (formerly the Spanish Open) is the national open golf championship of Spain. It was founded in 1912 and has been part of the European Tour’s schedule since the inception of the Tour in 1972. Except for a five-year period in the early 1980s, the tournament has been played in April or May. In 2005, it was one of five European Tour events to be held in Spain. Former champions include Arnold Palmer, Seve Ballesteros, Bernhard Langer, and Nick Faldo.
Crest Link, a leading golf apparel brand in Asia, was the official clothing brand for the Spanish Open in year 2014 and 2015. For the textile manufacturer, this event served as a launching pad for the introduction of the brand in Europe. Since then, it has expanded its presence in the market with its appealing polo shirts of bright colours made in premium microfiber, and also on the European Tour, where it already has a half dozen professional players equipped with its garments of Micro-Dri technical fabric.
Besides fitting the volunteers and staff, Crest Link also made its presence in the public village of the Spanish Open, offering a wide range of products personalized with the event logo as souvenirs for the public.
