Antigua to create new outfits for Solheim Cup

The Antigua Group Inc has been named the official apparel 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 Parker, Colorado August 13-18.

"Antigua was very proud to have been involved with the LPGA and support the American team's efforts for The Solheim Cup at Killeen Castle in Dublin, Ireland last year and is looking forward to being involved in creating and producing the U.S. team uniforms once again when the match is back on American soil in Colorado this upcoming year", said Ron McPherson, president and CEO of the Antigua Group. 
 
Though the International competition doesn't take place until August 2013, the method of designing and developing the team uniforms alongside U.S. Team Captain Meg Mallon is a diligent process which is already underway.   
 
Over the course of the year-long development process, Antigua, along with the U.S. Solheim Team, will be involved with creating the team uniform concept which involves choosing fabrics and designs appropriate for the field of play during a particular time of year in a specific seasonal climate. Antigua will also participate in the development of samples and the fitting of each potential team member in advance of the final team selection, a process that involves two separate fitting sessions -- at separate LPGA Tour events. 
 
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 takes more than a year.
 
The 2013 Solheim Cup will be held at Colorado Golf Club in Parker, Colorado August 13-18. Meg Mallon is the captain of the U.S. Solheim Cup team and Dottie Pepper will serve as assistant captain for this event. 
 
"All of us at Antigua are very proud to have been chosen by the LPGA to design and develop the uniforms for the 2013 U.S. Solheim Cup Team matches", said Ron McPherson, president and CEO of the Antigua Group. "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 plays a critical part in the final execution of the process. We have already had terrific directional meetings with LPGA staff and of course Captain Meg Mallon and her assistant captain, Dottie Pepper. Consequently the design and development process is underway and on target and we're doing whatever we can as a company and LPGA partner to support the team to victory. Our part is peripheral, it's when our part is finished and the match begins that it actually gets exciting for us here at Antigua."
