We are confident that her success will grow in alignment with the HIRZL brand,” commented HIRZL Vice President of Sales & Marketing Steve Gray.
Prior to reaching the LPGA Tour, Vedel played on the Ladies European Tour where she captured her first career victory at the 2012 Allianz Ladies Slovak Open.

HIRZL Gloves Manufactured for The “Ultimate Glove Experience:”
HIRZL manufactures their high performance gloves with only the finest genuine leather, natural kangaroo or cabretta leather which has been additionally tanned with a propriety technology. The leather is individually stretched by hand and table cut, effectively ensuring the direction of stretch is controlled in each piece. For ventilation comfort a membrane directs the airflow and breathability characteristics to create a micro-environment for the skin to breathe more easily. The stretch fit feature provides a strategically based perfect fit and wearing comfort. All HIRZL gloves are constructed with a 45-degree “Pre-curved finger system” in consideration to the natural curvature of the hand and to avoid bunching effects and guarantee a perfect fit. For addition comfort, a sweat band made with terry towel absorbs sweat and water at the wrist area which also has a warming effect when temperatures are low. Form fit inserts are strategically placed in the palm section of the glove to reduce pleats. A low wrist cut construction provides 360-degrees of unlimited movement.
Golfers who teach or play professionally rely on the characteristics these high performance gloves produce including legendary teaching professional Dave Pelz, who endorses HIRZL and provides HIRZL gloves at The Dave Pelz Scoring Game Schools.
