Australian Ladies Professional Golf and Cobra Puma Golf today announced the signing of a partnership which will see Puma Golf as the exclusive apparel supplier to ALPG, and Cobra Puma backing new ALPG initiatives supporting the development of aspiring female professionals.
The news comes as the ALPG Tour prepares for another solid tournament season in January / February, involving several high profile events attracting worldwide attention.
On the back of 2012 success stories surrounding players such as Stacey Keating, Lydia Ko and Lindsey Wright, the ALPG Tour is again poised to showcase not only Australasia's best but some of the best in the world.
Cobra Puma Golf already enjoys a strong presence in women's golf boasting a team of brand ambassadors including teenage American sensation Lexi Thompson and former European Tour number 1, Lee-Anne Pace, both of whom will be seen in action during the 2013 ALPG Tour season.
Warren Sevil, Chief Executive Officer, ALPG, welcomed the partnership which he says will allow ALPG and Cobra Puma Golf to benefit both during and outside of tournament season.
"Cobra Puma Golf upholds a fresh and cool image which is exactly the type of image our industry is targeting in order to attract more young women to the game. We are very grateful to Cobra Puma who will support us as we promote new – and soon to be announced - initiatives, aimed at increasing the profile of Ladies Professional Golf and, ultimately, strengthening the pipeline of future ALPG members. The ALPG team will also don the Puma Golf apparel and promote it with pride.” Sevil said.
Christian Pegrum, Head of Golf, Australasia, for Cobra Puma Golf, was also very enthusiastic about the possibilities the new partnership offered.
“Cobra Puma Golf is delighted to partner with the ALPG and their 2013 initiatives. Their focus on growing the game and enjoying golf are in line with what we aspire to achieve at Cobra Puma Golf. We are excited for our brand to be aligned with initiatives to support the growth of Ladies Professional Golf in Australia.”
