Ladies European Tour Golfer Katy McNicol Gets New Clothing Sponsor

April 24, 2013

Ladies European Tour (LET) golfer, anesthetist Katy McNicol has secured a new sponsor with golf clothing brand, Royal & Awesome, joining for the 2013 season.

The 25 year old has already represented Royal & Awesome on the LET at the Lalla Meryem Cup in Agadir, Morocco and in last week’s South African Women’s Open, where she tied for 16th place. 

McNicol narrowly missed out on a full Ladies European Tour card for 2013 by just two strokes after making the cut in 11 of 13 tournaments last season including two top-five finishes and three places in the top-ten.

McNicol said: “This has been a great start to the season. I cannot put into words how excited I have been to tee it up in Morocco and South Africa – with the chance to play with some of the top professionals in golf at the moment, with most of them challenging for a spot in the Solheim Cup in August.

“I look forward to having even more fun on the tour, sporting my new dazzling ‘awesome’ clothing, and hope that it will give me that extra edge.”

The news follows the announcement earlier in the year of the brand’s sponsorship of 22-year old LPGA tour professional Kayla Mortellaro and Laura Kueny from the Symetra Tour, the LPGA’s official developmental tour.

Royal & Awesome brand director, Graeme Smeaton, said: “As a very proud Scottish brand, we are delighted to bring a home-grown Scottish professional into the Royal & Awesome ranks for the 2013 season. We hope that Katy’s talent and her new ‘awesome’ clothing range will dazzle competitors and spectators alike.”
