Solheim Cup team to play in Sunice style

The U.S. Solheim Cup Team will be warm and dry wearing Sunice Outerwear this September at the Killeen Castle in County Meath, Ireland. Rosie Jones, the U.S. team captain, selected Sunice for its attention to styling and exceptional performance in a difficult wet climate.

The players will wear as part of their exclusive uniform multiple Sunice garments manufactured using only Gore-Tex fabrics to ensure they are provided ultimate performance and protection from the elements. In honor of the Solheim Cup captain Sunice has named their ladies Ultimate jacket, "the Rosie." As leader of the U.S. Solheim Cup team and a champion in her own right, Rosie was exactly who they were looking for in naming the jacket.

"As we get closer to the Solheim Cup, the anticipation is mounting as we anxiously await the appearance of Team USA in their custom-designed Sunice outerwear suits," said Mark Fletcher, President of Sunice. "The design and development process that involved our top product people working in conjunction with Rosie Jones and her assistants was a fun experience and we worked well together as a team."

"Everyone involved had the same objective; design a great looking rainsuit that would guarantee that the players remain dry and make them look good," added Heidi Rowsell, Director of Marketing. "We are confident that they will be the stand-out team and we wish them success. By wearing Sunice outerwear we are at least certain that if faced with adverse weather conditions, they can remain focused on the task at hand and not have to worry about staying, warm, dry and comfortable."

Sunice, founded in 1976 in Alberta, Canada as a skiwear brand, successfully transcended its technical outerwear capabilities into the golf market in the early 1990s as the golf industry gravitated towards designing sport-specific garments that truly helped enhance the game. Thus, it's no surprise Sunice -owned and run by Montreal, Canada-based Fletcher Leisure Group Inc., a company with 42 years of golf industry experience-meets the demands of the most discerning golfer. Sunice golf rainwear is a chosen favorite by many PGA and LPGA Tour players around the world.

The Solheim Cup is named in honor of Karsten Solheim, and his family, the makers of PING golf equipment. The Solheim Cup is the most prestigious international team event in women's professional golf. It is a biennial, trans-Atlantic team match-play competition featuring the best U.S.-born players from the LPGA and the best European-born players from the LET. The U.S. Team leads the competition, 8-3, and has never lost on home soil. The 2011 Solheim Cup will and be played at Killeen Castle in County Meath, Ireland, Sept. 19-25. In addition to founding sponsor PING, Global Partners of The Solheim Cup include AIB Group and Rolex.
