The golf sweater comes in a nice large Slazenger Heritage box.

Other colors of the sweater were also released, including one in Marl Grey, a color worn by Sean Connery (not on screen but during one of his golf tournaments), also available on Slazenger Heritage. Several other famous golf players including Jack Nicklaus and Johnny Miller wore Slazenger golf sweaters, see them all at Slazenger Heritage.

Even though Connery grew up in Scotland (a country famous for the many old golf courses), Sean Connery's love for the golf didn't start until he played the game for the movie Goldfinger (1964).

"I never had a hankering to play golf, despite growing up in Scotland just down the road from Bruntsfield Links, which is one of the oldest golf courses in the world. It wasn’t until I was taught enough golf to look as though I could outwit the accomplished golfer Gert Fröbe in Goldfinger that I got the bug. I began to take lessons on a course near Pinewood film studios and was immediately hooked on the game. Soon it would nearly take over my life." says Connery in his autobiography Being a Scot.

The golf opportunities in the sunny South of Spain was one of the reasons he lived in Marbella for many years. Connery played several celebrity games, for example Bing Crosby’s showbusiness amateur teams against professional golfers in America and the Michael Jordan celebrity tournament in 2005 on Paradise Island in the Bahamas.
