Druh Belts named official supplier to 2013 European Solheim Cup team

The appointment of Druh Belts as official supplier follows on from 2011 when Druh first supplied belts for the European Team when they won the event in such sensational style at Killeen Castle in Ireland.

As holders, the European Team will need 14 points to retain The Solheim Cup in the USA, with the U.S. Team needing 14½ points to regain the coveted Waterford Crystal prize. The U.S. team holds an 8-4 lead in the matches, which began in 1990.

Simon Hurd, founder of Druh Belts & Buckles, commented on the announcement, "Druh is delighted to be supplying its belts to the European Team for The 2013 Solheim Cup. The 2011 edition of this highly-competitive team competition proved to be one of the most exciting golfing tournaments that I have ever witnessed and Druh will once again be proud to accessorize the top female European golfers for the 2013 matches in the USA."

Said Marc Anderman, European Solheim Cup Manager, "We are thrilled to once again work with Druh Belts for The 2013 Solheim Cup. Simon and his team add the finishing touches on our complete "European" look and the team love wearing their customised belts and buckles during the event as they really stand out. Druh supplied the team belts when we won in Ireland in 2011 so we know we are guaranteed a first class service along with a quality product."

The Solheim Cup combines the tradition and prestige of the game of golf with passion for one's country. This biennial, trans-Atlantic team match-play competition features the best U.S.-born players from the Ladies Professional Golf Association (LPGA) Tour and the best European members from the Ladies European Tour (LET).

The Solheim Cup is named in honor of Karsten Solheim, the founder of Karsten Manufacturing Corporation, which makes PING golf equipment. In 1990, the Solheim family, in conjunction with the LPGA and the LET, developed the concept and became the title sponsor for The Solheim Cup, professional golf's international match-play competition for women. Held every two years, the event has grown into the most prestigious international women's professional golf team event. The Solheim Cup is the most highly coveted trophy in women's profes¬sional golf team competition; some of the most memorable moments in the sport have happened during one of The Solheim Cups, and berths on the U.S. and European teams are highly sought after by players from both organizations.

The 2013 Solheim Cup will take place from August 13-18 at Colorado Golf Club in Parker, Colo. The European Team enters the competition holding the Cup and will need 14 points to retain it, with the U.S. Team needing 14½ points to regain the coveted Waterford Crystal prize. The U.S. team holds an 8-4 lead in the matches, which began in 1990.

In addition to founding sponsor PING, Rolex is also a Global Partner of The Solheim Cup. For more information about The Solheim Cup and updated standings for each team, log on to www.solheimcupeurope.com or www.ladieseuropeantour.com.
