A look at the Dunning uniforms and Orca Golf bags used at the LPGA's International Crown
The LPGA's team match-play event, the International Crown, made its return last week after a five-year hiatus, Team Thailand claiming victory over Australia after a dominant week at TPC Harding Park. Four-player teams representing eight countries competed for the title in San Francisco. To give the teams a little more of a uniformed appearance, Dunning designed custom apparel scripting distinct for each squad, and Orca Golf created personalized golf bags for each player. Here's a look at the uniforms and bags from the event.

Dunning, in its first year of offering a women’s apparel collection, was recently named the uniform supplier for Team USA in the 2023 and 2024 Solheim Cups. We got a sneak peek of the looks in January at the 2023 PGA Merchandise Show, but this weekend we got an even closer look at Dunning’s uniform designing prowess in action.
Dunning has become one of the most performance-driven and innovative brands in the game for menswear, and its new women’s line is set to do the same. Its recipe for success with its standout men's collection has been exacted for its women's apparel—featuring clean lines, a sophisticated sense of color and patterns, and advanced technical fabrics, such as Coolmax, which is a type of polyester engineered to wick moisture and support temperature regulation.

“Dunning is made in the competitive spirit of golfers at the highest levels, and our Women’s Collection is, without compromise, held to the same technical standards as our legendary men’s line,” said Michael J. Setola, President and CEO of Tharanco Lifestyles, Dunning’s parent company. “Our participation in the International Crown validates our continuing commitment to athletic golf performance.”
Orca Golf is a women-owned golf bag company known for creating unique and custom leather bags. Each player got their own personalized bag for the week featuring their country’s national flower and flag incorporated into the design.
“First and foremost, we’re honored to be involved with this prestigious event,” said Orca Golf co-founder Erica Bennet. “We worked diligently to come up with features that would best symbolize the participating countries and all these talented women golfers.”
