Antigua Named As Provider For U.S. Women’s 2017 Solheim Cup Team

Recently, I released a press release introducing the 2017 Summer Women’s Apparel line from Antigua Sports. Last week, the team representing the United States against Europe was introduced by team captain Juli Inkster. Initially past Solheim Cup team stalwart Paula Creamer was left off of the team but has since replaced the injured Jessica Korda.

Mary Beth Lacy of golf public relations firm Mary Beth Lacy Inc shared a press release with me. In the press release below it was announced that Antigua will be the United States teams apparel provider. Please see below for more details and scripting.

Antigua to Serve as Provider for Team USA’s Uniforms at the 2017 Solheim Cup  

    

PEORIA, Ariz., August 10, 2017 – 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 provider for Team USA’s uniforms at the 2017 Solheim Cup.

The 2017 Solheim Cup will be held at Des Moines Golf and Country Club in West Des Moines, Iowa from Aug. 18-20.
Having created Team USA’s clothing at the last three Solheim Cups, working on the 2017 uniforms presented a unique challenge for Antigua designer Danielle Dellios, who created something fresh and new using the traditional red, white and blue color scheme.
“Instead of coming up with designs that were solely ‘Americana’ in feeling, I decided to give the team a more sport-driven look,” said Dellios. The abstract prints in the new designs are a big change from the previous outfit presentation.
Team USA captain Juli Inkster has been very active with input on the uniform designs for both her winning team in 2015 in Germany and for the 2017 uniforms.
“She also loves to get American fans involved by asking them to wear red one day, white

another day, and navy blue the third day — to support the team’s efforts on the course,” said Dellios. “She has been fantastic to work with through the whole process.”

The Friday outfit for the first day of competition at the 2017 Solheim Cup features a new take on polka dots – the red and white print Ascend polo is matched with the Ascend skort and short that sport a mirrored version of the same print, in white with red dots. The gradient dotted pattern creates an optical illusion.

The team will start Saturday’s matches wearing the Prize polo and skort. The polo features a zip placket, a solid white body with contrast navy color printed insets. The print pattern is reminiscent of all-over sequins, minus the metallic effect. The coordinating skort is printed all-over with solid white welt pockets and waistband. Both the polo and skort feature a stretch jersey knit fabric.

On Sunday, the team will don mostly white with an asymmetrical engineered printed navy and red triangle. The Pyramid polo features a snap placket with front and back printed panels. The

About Until The Next Tee

I am a soon-to-be 45 year old who has pursued golf over the past 6 years. I've played on Mini-Tours and in one U.S. Open Qualifier. I have worked in different aspects of the golf industry. I became interested in golf after a chance meeting of Mr. Arnold Palmer when he was in Hamilton, Ontario for the PGA Canadian Senior Open in 1996. I had no idea then that this beautiful game would consume me and develop into one of my passions.
