Clothing company Sport-Haley Inc and sports goods firm Spalding Sports Worldwide Inc on Wednesday agreed to extend their Ben Hogan golf apparel licensing deal to countries including Sweden, Mexico and the UK.

The pair have modified their licensing agreement, which began in May 2001, granting Sport-Haley a license to design, and manufacture a complete collection of men's premium golf apparel under the Ben Hogan brand name. The licensing agreement was initially limited to the US.

In addition to the UK, Sweden and Mexico, the expansion includes Aruba, Cayman Islands, Jamaica, Dominican Republic, Bahamas, and British Virgin Islands.

"Our initial launch of the Ben Hogan apparel collections has exceeded our expectations under difficult market conditions," said Kevin Tomlinson, Sport-Haley CEO. "It seemed natural for our companies to expand on an international basis."
