Launched in 2015, Storie Apparel was founded by junior golf parents who saw a need for relevant clothing in the game and developed serious performance golf wear for junior girls through a clean youthful line of clothing. Every detail of the Storie Apparel line is intentional – from technical fabric and design, to stitching and fit. The result is a collection of shirts, skorts, shorts, outerwear and accessories that set a new standard of performance. The designs are intentionally crafted to let the athlete shine, not the clothing. After all, it's her determination and drive that you love to cheer on, not her outfit.
