(PEORIA, ARIZ.) - The Antigua Group, Inc., one of the nation's leading designers and marketers of lifestyle and golf apparel under the distinguished Antigua brand, has been named the official apparel licensee for the 2015 U.S. Solheim Cup Team. The 2015 Solheim Cup will be held at Golf Club St. Leon-Rot in Germany, September 18-20.
Though the international competition doesn't take place until September, the process of designing and developing the team uniforms alongside U.S. Team Captain Juli Inkster and U.S. Assistant Captain Pat Hurst began in late fall 2014. The designs were finalized in January.
"It's been great to work with the staff at Antigua, and they have always been a terrific supporter of the LPGA," U.S. Captain Juli Inkster said. "They've been very enthusiastic about clothing the United States Team, and I'm really excited to see our players dressed in their red, white and blue."
The final uniforms will consist of two separate apparel changes per day for the tournament rounds, as well as additional outfits for each day of the practice rounds. The process of designing the U.S. Solheim Cup Team uniforms from beginning to end took more than a year.
"All of us at Antigua are very proud to have been chosen by the LPGA to design and develop the uniforms for the 2015 U.S. Solheim Cup Team matches," McPherson said. "This opportunity is a great honor and undertaken with pride for Antigua company-wide as the development and logistics that are involved with each department play a critical part in the final execution of the process. We have had terrific directional meetings with LPGA staff and of course Captain Inkster."
