Lela Designs is delighted to provide an update with regards to the two LPGA touring professionals that are wearing Lela on tour this year. The fact that these players have chosen to wear Lela while competing at the highest level is indicative of the line’s usability and technical excellence. Players on the LPGA Tour want to look great but they won’t sacrifice performance. By wearing Lela at this highest level, these players are making a strong statement about the performance of our Lela line.

Mhairi McKay, while wearing Lela, has had an incredible season. On August 28th, 2007, Mhairi won $105,307 while wearing Lela by finishing tied for second at the LPGA Safeway Classic. Finishing second at a highly competitive LPGA event speaks volumes about Mhairi’s ability and in turn, this is a big validation of the Lela line. Tina Hofer, Managing Director of Lela, states, “The LPGA Tour is the epitome of women’s golf. Lela has made a big splash on Tour this year and our players aren’t just playing, they are competing to win. Lela has been very well received in fashion circles and to now be so prominent on the LPGA Tour is a great bonus for the retailers carrying our product. With growing television coverage and print media coverage of players wearing the Lela line, the brand awareness of the line throughout the United States and Canada is growing by leaps and bounds. We couldn’t be more excited!” In addition to her great season this year, Mhari is in the midst of a wonderful ongoing career. Born in Scotland, she was the first overseas player to be offered a scholarship at Stanford University in California where she was a classmate of Tiger Woods, she holds the women’s course record and what is arguably the world’s most famous golf course (St. Andrews Old Course) and has more than $1.7 million in career earnings on the Tour.

 In addition to Mhairi McKay, Jeanne Cho-Hunicke of the LPGA Tour also recently announced that she is wearing Lela this year. Jeanne is in her Rookie Season on the LPGA Tour and is a rising star. Jeanne had a distinguished amateur career, including a win at the 1988 Japan Junior Masters and a college career that saw here as a three-time member of the National Golf Coaches Association All American Scholar Golf Team. She was also a contestant on The Golf Channel’s “The Big Break V: Hawaii.”

The Lela brand is rapidly gaining broad exposure; amongst competitive golfers, fashion conscious casual players and other women that just want to look and feel great!
