Slazenger Golf is debuting its new Ryder Cup line of apparel featuring what the company said is detailed embroidery and a special attention to detail for the Ryder Cup motifs on every garment.

"Since we have been chosen to represent this preeminent golf event, we have chosen rich colors and unique details for this line," said Steve Walsh, Slazenger Golf's Senior Director of Apparel. "We fully utilize the detailed embroidery and have placed it on different locations such as the inside placket or the back yoke."

Walsh said the company chose multiple fabrics and textures for the combed cotton Ryder Cup line including a lightweight pique, a larger pique for extra texture, a waffle stitch and soft jersey. The golf shirts are available in navy, white and red. Slazenger sales representatives are currently taking orders for the apparel items. The 2004 Ryder Cup will be held Sept. 14-19, 2004 at Oakland Hills Country Club in Bloomfield Township, Mich.

Walsh said Slazenger used a custom neck seam tape and label on all of its Ryder Cup garments. In addition to the official Ryder Cup logo, Slazenger has embroidered extra motifs on every style. The caps have custom Ryder Cup designs woven into the sandwich brims. The micro fiber wind shirt vest features embroidery on the wind shirt back yoke.
