"(The Solheim Cup) is the only event (in women's golf) where you play as a team and get to wear the same clothing," Koch says. cortesy abacus
While some players might opt for the eccentric pants as popularized by male golfers like Ian Poulter, Koch has opted for a more conservative, classic style. courtesy abacus
"You have to make sure that there are 12 people that are going to wear this and feel comfortable in it," Koch says. Courtesy Abacus
