Canadian company Sunice has been selected as outerwear supplier for the International Team, the team’s caddies and entourage at The Presidents Cup. The event will be held from Oct. 6-11 at the Jack Nicklaus Golf Club Korea in Songdo IBD, Incheon City, South Korea.
Nick Price is the returning captain of the 12-member International Team, having also led the unit in 2013. KJ Choi, who is from South Korea, will be the vice-captain, and Tony Johnston and Mark McNulty are reprising their 2013 roles as International Team captain’s assistants.
“Before the 2013 tournament, I took a poll from the team members to see what kind of outerwear they wanted for The Presidents Cup, and the winner was Sunice,” said Price. “It turned out to be a great choice, as the weather was rough in Dublin, OH, so we used the Sunice gear often. It was a true litmus test. For 2015, no poll was necessary, as the choice was obvious. We are back with Sunice.”
The outerwear for The Presidents Cup 2015 International Team uniforms will be constructed of Gore Tex fabrics enhanced with Paclite Technology. The players’ uniform package includes: a full-zip rain jacket with stretch back panel inserts; short sleeve rain pullover; rain pants; and a 3M featherless down vest. The South Korean flag inspired the uniform colors chosen for the International Team. “It’s a great honor to be invited, once again, to outfit the best international players,” said Conrad Tappert, president of Sunice. “Working with these demanding golfers makes us better. They notice every detail. We love the challenge.”
Members of the International team are Jason Day (Australia), Adam Scott (Australia), Branden Grace (South Africa), Anirban Lahiri (India), Thongchai Jaidee (Thailand), Steven Bowditch (Australia), Sangmoon Bae (South Korea), Danny Lee (New Zealand), Charl Schwartzl (South Africa), Marc Leishman (Australia), Hideki Matsuyama (Japan), and Louis Oosthuizen (South Africa).
