Monday, July 29, 2013
Antigua has been named the official licensee for the 2013 U.S. Solheim Cup Team for the second consecutive competition. The 2013 Solheim Cup will be held at Colorado Golf Club in Park, Colo., Aug. 13-18.
"We have had good fortune to design and develop the Ryder Cup uniforms for the American team back in 1993 and now twice for the LPGA and the Solheim Cup in 2011 and this year for the matches in Colorado," said Ron McPherson, president and CEO of the Antigua Group. "These opportunities are a feet honor and recognition for our brand and company."
The Antigua development team and U.S. captain Mag Mallon worked together to design the uniforms over a year-long process. This included certain fabrics and designs for possible weather conditions. Antigua also fitted each player that could make or possible get picked for the team.
"It's been great to work with the staff from Antigua. They have always been terrific supporters of the LPGA," Mallon said.
