adidas ambassadors Jessica Korda and Dustin Johnson joined representatives from adidas and USA Golf in announcing that adidas will provide the clothing for the 2016 U.S. Olympics golf teams.
adidas Golf has been named the official uniform provider for the athletes, coaches and staff of USA Golf – meaning that adidas will clothe the players representing the United States when golf returns to the Olympics in 2016, along with the coaches and support staff.
"We are elated that the game's best players will showcase their talents in our apparel on the world's greatest stage," adidas Golf President Ben Sharpe on Tuesday as the agreement was announced at Trump National Doral in Miami. "The storied history of adidas has long been associated with the greatest athletes in the world, and we're proud to support the athletes of the USA Golf Team as they compete for their place in Olympic history."
The men and women playing for the United States in Rio de Janeiro will receive layering pieces, polos, outerwear and pants that adidas says will be "designed and engineered to the highest levels of innovation the brand has ever developed."
The Olympic line of apparel has yet to be unveiled. adidas also is creating a USA Golf-branded line of apparel that will be available to the public later this year.
USA Golf is a collaboration of The PGA of America, the PGA Tour, the LPGA and the U.S. Golf Association. It is recognized by the U.S. Olympic Committee and the International Golf Federation as the national governing body that will name the players and manage both the men's and women's U.S. Olympic golf teams.
