DEXTER'S GOLF PUSH: SPORTSBUSINESS JOURNAL's Jennifer Lee reports Dexter Golf, in its first partnership with an LPGA Tour player, has reached a three-year agreement with Carin Koch. Koch "will not only wear Dexter shoes in all of her tournament appearances but also will help design the Carin Koch Collection, a line of women's golf shoes that is scheduled to debut early next year." The line will feature five styles with three color patterns for each, with the shoes retailing for $59.99-89.99. Koch is repped by Amani Sports (SPORTSBUSINESS JOURNAL, 8/25).
