ATLANTA — The PGA Tour has chosen Bobby Jones and Hickey Freeman to outfit both the U. S. and International teams for the 2007 Presidents Cup at the Royal Montreal Golf Club Sept. 24-30 in Montreal, Canada.
The President's Cup is a team-matched competition held every two years featuring 24 of the world’s greatest golfers. The two teams are comprised of 12 members each, with one team consisting of players from the U. S. and the other of international players from countries around the world, excluding Europe.
Each day of the tournament, Hickey Freeman and Bobby Jones will dress both the U S. and International teams for the opening ceremonies, their daily outfits, and closing ceremonies. The teams, captained by Jack Nicklaus and Gary Player, include Tiger Woods, Jim Furyk, Phil Mickelson, Ernie Els, Adam Scott, Vijay Singh and many other world class golfers.
Both teams will be dressed in custom tailored clothing and dress furnishings from Hickey Freeman, as well as knit shirts and sweaters from Bobby Jones. Each team’s apparel reflects their respective flag colors. The U.S. team will wear red, white and navy, while the International team’s apparel colors are royal blue, camel and black.
Committee members and honored guests, including former President George H.W. Bush, will be sporting custom-made cashmere sport coats, wool trousers, silk neckwear, and dress shirts. Custom suits for the teams have also been chosen for the dinner with Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper. In addition, the rules officials will each have unique Hickey Freeman outfits for the opening ceremony. Volunteers working the event will also be in Bobby Jones knit shirts.
Replica team knits will be available for sale in the merchandise shop at The Royal Montreal Country Club in Canada. Authentic team knits will be available for customer purchase in all five Bobby Jones and Hickey Freeman retail store locations, as well as online at www.bobbyjonesshop.com.

According to @laurentsai, former “Terrace House: Aloha State” cast member, she didn’t know she was auditioning for the Japanese version of “Real World.” “I was telling a couple of my friends and someone’s like, ‘That sounds a lot like Terrace House.’ I was like, ’No it can’t be.’” Turns out, it was.
