John Letters have announced that Phillip Archer has re-signed for the 2013 season.
The Englishman, who has a career best finish of second at the Omega European Masters in 2007 for €222,220, pledged his future to Letters shortly before heading out to India for the Gujarat Kensville Challenge where he recorded a top-three finish at his first event of the 2013 Season.
Entering his fifth year as a John Letters staff player and brand ambassador, Archer plays the full complement of John Letters products including the Master Model Driver and Fairway woods plus the Master Model Satin irons.
With rounds of 73, 69 and 66 for a total of 11-under-par, Archer finished three shots back from eventual winner Shiv Kapur from India and one shot behind runner-up Andrew McArthur from Scotland.
Archer commented: “I’m delighted to re-sign and continue my association with John Letters. We have worked together for a number of years and have a great relationship. With John Letters’ products in my bag I am confident I will be competing at the highest level before long.”
Archer, who agonisingly missed out a Tour Card for the European Tour in 2013 by finishing just one place outside the automatic qualification spots on the Challenge Tour in 2012, will look to go one better this year.
Archer spent some time at John Letters’ state-of-the-art testing facility in Huddersfield during the off-season, trying out all the latest Letters’ equipment, dialling in his clubs and working on his game.
Marketing and Business Manager, Simon Corp, commented: “We’re delighted to continue our relationship with Phil and pleased he got off to such a great start in his first event of 2013. We’re looking forward to another exciting year.”
