NEW YORK -- The Tommy Hilfiger Group, which is wholly owned by PVH Corp., is pleased to congratulate British golfer Melissa Reid on her first Ladies European Tour win in the 2012 season at the Raiffeisenbank Prague Golf Masters on Sunday, June 24. Demonstrating incredible composure, Reid sunk a six foot putt to seal her one stroke victory over Italian Diana Luna on the 18th green.
Wearing her trademark Tommy Hilfiger Golf white shorts and lilac polo, Reid was the picture of poise and grace on the course. Reid has been dubbed one of the most promising talents in the game today and perfectly represents the classic, American, cool spirit of the Tommy Hilfiger brand.
"We are so excited for Melissa," said Tommy Hilfiger. "She had a sensational and well deserved win on Sunday. We are very proud to have her as the brand ambassador for our women's golf collection."
"We are truly delighted for Melissa," said Jon Camp, European Managing Director of Fletcher Leisure Group, the licensee for the Tommy Hilfiger Golf line. "Her win in Prague highlights the qualities that led us to choose to work with Melissa in the first place. I have no doubt she will continue to make us very proud."
The Spring 2012 Tommy Hilfiger Golf collection is inspired by a preppy and energetic spirit that is at the core of the Tommy Hilfiger brand DNA. Adding a twist to signature classic American sensibility, the collection's technical performance fabrics focus on style and fit. Through a license agreement with Fletcher Leisure Group, the men's and women's golf lines are available in the U.S., Canada and Europe at private and public golf clubs, golf specialty stores, sport specialty stores, resort accounts, and corporate accounts, as well as at tommy.com.
