ProQuip has confirmed that 400 rainsuits, waterproof tops and trousers that have been exclusively designed for the 2012 European Ryder Cup team are now being jetted off to Medinah Country Club.
To kit out the 12 players in José María Olazábal’s team, plus caddies and backroom staff, ProQuip has supplied 90 pairs of waterproof trousers, 60 full-zip jackets and 60 half-zip playing tops.
While the suit design remains a closely guarded secret, ProQuip says the slim-fit garments feature an exclusively developed, highly technical, lightweight fabric that is super-quiet and supremely soft, enabling the players to perform their best in all weathers.
Players’ wives and partners will also receive a specially designed ProQuip jacket in striking Team Europe colours.
“With more than 25 years’ experience supplying Ryder Cup Teams, we are more than up to the challenge,” said ProQuip’s general manager Russell Brooks.
“The players have to be prepared for every eventuality with the weather, as we saw at Celtic Manor Resort in 2010, which is why we personally tailor each rain suit for the team and use the best performing technical fabrics to keep them dry and comfortable in wind and rain.”
A limited number of replica team suits are available from the Official Ryder Cup online store for fans to emulate their favourite Team Europe players.
Golfers can also able to wear their own version of the European Ryder Cup weatherwear following the launch of ProQuip’s new Trophy Suit, featuring the same high-performance fabric worn by Team Europe.
