Sportswear firm Cutter & Buck Inc has renewed its sponsorship deal with Annika Sorenstam who overcame controversy earlier this year when she became the first female golfer to play in a men's competition.

The Seattle-based company said the three-year deal will see the Swede wear its sportswear at all major golf tournaments and continue to consult with its design and merchandising team on performance features and design innovations for the women's golf collections.
