Ten-time LPGA winner Lexi Thompson may have taken a break from social media, but she’s making headlines as a promoter of Short Par 4, a golf clothing and accessories subscription program. The Short Par 4 golf clothing box has been around for 5 years, but was previously available just for men.
Their new Short Par 4 for women is named the Magnolia Membership and was inspired by the Augusta National Women’s Amateur, an event established to inspire greater interest and participation in the women’s game.
“I am so excited to be a part of the Short Par 4 family and the launch of our first ever Women’s box, The Magnolia Box! To be a part of launching a one of a kind box named after a beautiful flower, that is synonymous with golf, is an honor. I am looking forward to collaborating on The Magnolia Box as it becomes a must have addition to any woman golfer’s life!” said Lexi Thompson.
Initially, the Short Par 4 Magnolia Subscription Box will be offered on an every-other-month basis, and will include apparel and accessories from premium brands like PUMA delivered right to your door.
Prospective members take a personalized style quiz online so “Style Caddies” can match the members taste to a range of fashions from traditional to athletic or even a little wild. Each box delivers stylish clothing and accessories at prices up to 60% lower than you will find in a pro shop.
Short par 4 has local roots. Owner Bobby DiMeo calls Sarasota his home, and sponsors the Pro Am at the LECOM Web.com tour event at Lakewood National CC. DiMeo’s roots run deep in the game, first as a graduate of the Golf Academy of America, a caddie, and as an entrepreneur where he turned his job of caddying into an online booking platform that pairs golfers with caddies nationwide. His desire to find fashionable golf clothing led him to start Short par 4 along with his partner Martin Haas.
The pair have been dressing gentlemen since 2014 and the company has become golf’s leading box subscription service with over 500,000 boxes delivered to their members in 2018.
“I am extremely excited about the launch of the Short Par 4 Magnolia Box, which will bring the same style, convenience, and value that our other box members have been able to experience. We are 100% committed to helping grow the women’s game, and is why we felt it was important to launch an offering for women,” said Bobby DiMeo, Founder and CEO of Short Par 4.
The first Magnolia Boxes will be delivered in June, and cost $99, plus shipping. You can get started by visiting your personal golf stylist at ShortPar4.com
