DAYTONA BEACH, Florida — The Ladies Professional Golf Association (LPGA) announced that Weatherman has been appointed as the Official Umbrella Provider for Team USA and Team Europe at this year's Solheim Cup.
Weatherman has also renewed its partnership with the LPGA, having initially been named as the Official Umbrella of the LPGA in April 2018. The LPGA co-branded Weatherman golf umbrella will continue to have a presence throughout the LPGA Tour season — utilized by select LPGA players, rules officials and staff during weather delays and in scorching heat. The umbrella is available for purchase here, with a portion of the proceeds benefiting the LPGA Foundation.
"We look forward to our continued partnership with Weatherman and having Team USA rely on them at The Solheim Cup," said Chief Sales Officer Kelly Hyne.
Weatherman's features assist how golfers of all skill levels approach weather conditions on the course. Industrial-strength fiberglass prevents breaking and inverting, and vented canopies withstand winds up to 55 mph. Teflon-coated fabric keeps golfers dry and the UPF 50+ barrier protects them from the sun. A large mesh pocket on the inside of the canopy offers a dry storage compartment for gloves and a scorecard, while a silicone-coated, non-slip rib is the perfect place to hang a towel.
