(BOURBON, MO) - Imperial Headwear has been named the Official Headwear of the prestigious Solheim Cup that will be taking place Sept. 18-20 at St. Leon-Rot Golf Club near Heidelberg, Germany.
This biennial, trans-Atlantic team match-play competition matches the best U.S.-born players from the Ladies Professional Golf Association (LPGA) Tour and the best European members from the Ladies European Tour (LET).
The U.S. squad holds an 8-5 lead in the series, which began in 1990, and is coming off back-to-back losses (2011, 2013) for the first time in history. Juli Inkster is captain of the U.S. Team, while Sweden's Carin Koch leads the European squad.
"From an event perspective, it doesn't get any bigger than the Solheim Cup in ladies professional golf," says Darren Schubert, events manager at Imperial Headwear. "We are truly honored to have the best players in the world wearing Imperial during competition."
