The Tommy Hilfiger Group, which is wholly owned by PVH Corp. [NYSE: PVH], is pleased to congratulate British golfer Melissa Reid on her first Ladies European Tour win in the 2012 season at the Raiffeisenbank Prague Golf Masters on Sunday, 24 June. Demonstrating incredible composure, Reid sunk a six foot putt to seal her one stroke victory over Italian Diana Luna on the 18th green.
Wearing her trademark Tommy Hilfiger Golf white shorts and lilac polo, Reid was the picture of poise and grace on the course. Reid has been dubbed one of the most promising talents in the game today and perfectly represents the classic, American, cool spirit of the Tommy Hilfiger brand.
