Cobra Puma Golf signs Carly Booth
Cobra Puma Golf has signed Carly Booth on a 360 partnership ahead of the 2017 season.
As an amateur, Booth burst onto the golf scene at12 years old, playing alongside Sandy Lyle in the British Masters Pro-Am. When she turned 14, Booth was no stranger to the limelight, appearing in her first professional event, the Ladies Scottish Open, and finished 13th in the field. Following that, she was rated the No.1 junior in Europe after winning the European Junior Masters in 2007, the same year she lifted the Scottish Under-18 and Under-21 titles.
In 2008, she became the youngest player to represent Great Britain & Ireland in the 76-year history of the Curtis Cup, facing the Americans in the 35th staging of that match at St Andrews. Carly also played at the Junior Ryder Cup in 2006 and 2008 and won the Daily Telegraph Finals in 2007 and 2008.
Now, a two-time winner on the Ladies European Tour and still only 24, Carly has high hopes for the 2017 LET season and beyond. She also joins an elite group of golfers using Cobra equipment and wearing Puma clothing, including Lexi Thompson, Blair O’Neil, Rickie Fowler, Jonas Blixt and Bryson Dechambeau.
“I’ve heard some great things about Cobra golf clubs, and over the years Rickie and Lexi have worn the brand well. The Puma gear is great, I have always liked it, and it’s nice to be part of the family. This could be a really good change for me,” said Booth.
“Carly is a great Ambassador - not only is she a proven winner on the Ladies European Tour, but also a great personality with a large following. Her love and dedication to fitness mirrors that of the PUMA brand and we look forward working with Carly and playing a part in her future success.” Said Mark Freeman, General Manager at Cobra Puma Golf.
