He will also take part in a range of promotional activities for the company, including a UNIQLO global polo shirt campaign to be launched in mid-April.

Commenting on the partnership, Tadashi Yanai , Fast Retailing Chairman, President & CEO, said, “Our Brand Ambassador initiative targets individuals who are not only successful and ambitious in their own right, but also socially conscious and driven to give back to society.

From this perspective, Mr. Scott is a wonderful addition. UNIQLO understands, and appreciates, Mr. Scott's determination to become the best golfer in the world. As a company, we aim to provide clothing that meets the needs of anyone, anywhere. Given its widespread following worldwide and accessibility regardless of age, golf is a good match for us. Through this kind of initiative, we aim to improve the lives of people the world over."
