DAYTONA BEACH, Fla., August 3, 2017 -- Revo sunglasses, the leading global performance sunwear brand, has been named the sunglass provider for the United States team at this year's Solheim Cup in West Des Moines, Iowa.
A prestigious biennial contest between Europe and the United States, the Solheim Cup will be played at Des Moines Golf and Country Club from Aug. 18-20.
"We are proud to work with the LPGA and the Solheim Cup," said Cliff Robinson, President of Revo. "Women today seek both fashion AND performance, as well as the best protection when choosing their sunwear, so Revo has become a natural choice for women spending time outdoors."
"As we grow our golf business, we look forward to building our relationship with the LPGA and the Solheim Cup, and we will continue to bring the best of fashion, performance and protection to our fans around the world."
Founded in 1985, Revo quickly became a global performance eyewear brand known as the leader in polarized lens technology. Revo sunglasses were first created by utilizing lens technology developed by NASA as solar protection for satellites. Nearly three decades later, Revo continues to build on its rich heritage of technology and innovation by offering the clearest and most advanced high-contrast polarized eyewear in the world.
With the Solheim Cup returning to U.S. soil this year, Team USA will try to retain the trophy in front of their home fans after staging the biggest come-from-behind victory in the event's history to beat Europe 14.5-13.5 at Golf Club St. Leon-Rot in Baden-Wurttemberg, Germany in 2015.
The U.S. has won nine of the 14 previous editions of the Solheim Cup, including four of the last six.
