Scot Katy McNicol celebrates spectacular sponsorship

May 14, 2013

Top Scottish golf professional Katy McNicol is celebrating after securing a sponsorship deal with Scotland's most spectacular golf clothing brand, Royal & Awesome, to wear during her busy Ladies European Tour (LET) and Access Tour schedule this year.

Carnoustie-based McNicol will be showcasing the brand's full range of women's clothing throughout the season and has made an encouraging start to the new campaign.

The 25 year old has already represented Royal & Awesome on the LET at the Lalla Meryem Cup in Agadir, Morocco and in the South African Women's Open, where she tied for 16 th place. She regularly competes against the best players on the tour including British stars Catriona Matthew, Carly Booth and LET legend Laura Davies.

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."

Royal & Awesome's range of eye-catching golf trousers, shorts and hats are 'perfect for the pars and the bars'. The brand has recently launched plus-twos as well as women's pants, shorts and skorts in their dazzling designs, complemented by a range of men's and women's shirts, socks and belts with prices from £49.99 (trousers) £39.99 (shorts) and £19.99 (hats).

The 'Awesomes' - the brand's range of brightly designed golf trousers - build on the wonderful heritage and history of golf in Scotland by adding a whole lot of fun and colour, and are guaranteed to make an impact on the course, the clubhouse or the corporate jolly. All of their 'bottoms' come with a free golf tool/bottle opener, which is a nod to their strap line of 'for the pars and the bars'.
