Carly Booth, one of the UK’s leading female golfers, dropped by Royal Birkdale last week to sign a multi-year deal to play on the Ladies European Tour with a Pink Volvik S4 golf ball.
The popular Scottish player with a big social media following had used the same ball to qualify for this month’s US Open in New Jersey for the first time.
Carly signed the agreement with Volvik Chairman and founder Kyungahn Moon, who was over from South Korea and attended his first Open Championship.
She joins an increasing number of world-class golfers using Volvik balls on Tour, including two-time Masters champion Bubba Watson and multiple LPGA winners such as Lee Il Hee and Chella Choi.
“I just love playing with the Pink Volvik ball because it makes my game so much more colourful and fun,” said Carly. “I first used the S4 ball during qualifying for the US Open and instantly loved the control it gave me, both off the tee and around the greens,” she added.
“Having Carly as part of the new Volvik team is great for the brand and demonstrates that quality coloured golf balls are here to stay,” said Jason Stewart, European Manager for Volvik.”
Carly became the youngest ever club champion in Britain when she won the title at Dunblane New aged 11 and she was the youngest ever Scot to qualify for the Ladies European Tour six years later. The 25-year-old has won twice on the Tour and is currently ranked 25th on the 2017 Order of Merit.
