Swedish clothing brand Abacus will continue its involvement with The Solheim Cup this year when the women's international team golf event takes place at Rich Harvest Farms, Sugar Grove, Illinois, USA, from August 21-23.
As well as dressing the women's European Solheim Cup Team, Abacus will also clothe The PING Junior Solheim Cup Team, due to represent Europe at nearby Aurora Country Club from August 18-19.
Abacus was the Official Clothing Supplier to both The European Solheim Cup Team and PING Junior Solheim Cup teams in Sweden in 2007 and the company will also continue to supply clothing to the Ladies European Tour's tournament staff during both events.
"We feel that it is important to support young rising stars and since the cooperation in 2007 was such a success and we got great feedback from the players, we wanted to continue our support of the PING Junior Solheim Cup" said Sven-Olof Karlsson, Managing Director of Abacus.
"We are delighted to have Abacus as the Official Clothing Supplier to The 2009 European Solheim Cup and PING Junior Solheim Cup teams once again following a successful partnership in 2007," added Mark Casey, Director of Operations and The Solheim Cup for the Ladies European Tour.
"It is only natural that young players want to emulate their role models and with this arrangement, the junior golfers will be able to wear the same brand of clothing as the established competitors. This can only help to further inspire the junior team members, who are key players in the overall event."
