Captain Liselotte Neumann invited prospective members of her Solheim Cup team to a uniform fitting at the Unicredit Ladies German Open this week in Gut Hausern, near Munich. Captain Lotta has travelled over for the tournament to catch-up with her vice-captain Carin Koch, and also keep her eye on the potential members of her team who are playing in this premier LET event.
Official clothing suppliers to the European Team; Abacus for on-course wear, and Prêt for the formal attire, were both on hand to expertly tailor each piece of clothing to the ladies.
Abacus has been supplying on-course clothing for the European Team since 2007 and so they fully understand the needs of the players in terms of both functionality and style. Prêt have previously supplied the formal wear for the European Team for five previous editions of The Solheim Cup (2002, 2003, 2005, 2007 and 2009), guaranteeing a first class service and quality of clothing.
The Swedish theme is strong in this year’s match with both clothing suppliers and the trio of Captain Lotta, Vice-Captains Carin Koch and Annika Sorenstam coming from the Sweden also.
After seeing their designs on paper, the captain was excited to finally see it on some of the players who may be playing in Colorado on August 16th – 18th this year.
