Carin Koch, longtime Kaenon ambassador and Solheim Cup Captain, collaborates with Kaenon Polarized for inspiration and visual advantage, as Europe shoots for another win.
NEWPORT BEACH, Calif. (September 10, 2015) – Carin Koch has chosen her long-time eyewear partner Kaenon Polarized to
provide a unique gift for the members of her Solheim Cup team. Focused on a three-peat, the European captain will outfit
her team in style, technology and a special motivational message in hopes of continuing the winning streak against the
“I’m excited that Kaenon was able to make something truly special and personal,” describes the 44 year old Swede.
“Their designs have become an extension of my personality, on and off the course, and their lens is second to none.” Each
Kaenon Clarke gifted will have three yellow stars hand painted on the left temple. Each star will represent a win over the United States, the third still to be earned in Germany. The bold three-star design, conceived by Koch, is intended to motivate her team and represents what she believes they are capable of achieving. “The opportunity to guide these talented women to a third consecutive win is truly an honour. To do so, will require motivation and confidence,” describes Koch, who has been on the winning end of Solheim competitions as both player and vice-captain.
Koch has been the prominent face of Kaenon golf since the brand’s inception. “We’ve been friends for over 20 years, so
we were honored when Carin approached us with her idea. To lead Europe to a third consecutive victory over the US would
be a crowning milestone to a wonderful career for Carin, as well as the entire European golfing community,” said Steve
Rosenberg, co-founder and CEO of Kaenon.
Together Rosenberg and Koch decided on the Kaenon Clarke – a retro-inspired classic that doesn’t look like a typical active
lifestyle sunglass frame. A limited number of the Carin Koch special edition Kaenon Clarke sunglasses will be sold on site at
the Solheim Cup; which includes a commemorative customized Solheim Cup microfiber cleaning bag.
Athletes will attest, the real magic of Kaenon lies within the lens technology. Kaenon’s proprietary polarized SR-91® lens
material is the industry’s only uncompromising lens to offer unparalleled visual clarity, impact resistance, durability, color
saturation detail definition, with full-spectrum UV protection– all in an extremely lightweight package.
Kaenon’s patented SR-91 lens is further validated by multiple victories on both the LPGA and PGA Tours, and use from
other well-known female players and Solheim Cup participants, vice-captain Sophie Gustafson, Germany’s hometown hero Caroline Masson, and American Morgan Pressel. The collaboration between Koch and Kaenon is one of several athlete-inspired product developments that has become the inspiration for Kaenon’s upcoming 2015 Holiday Capsule Collection – KLR – launching to retail and available at kaenon.com this November.
