Becky Brewerton the latest Poodle Pro
May 18, 2011

Amsterdam-based women's golf brand Poodle is proud to announce that it has signed LET/LPGA star, Becky Brewerton, to its growing club of Poodle Pro's for the 2011 season.

With two tour wins and two Solheim Cup appearances under her belt, Becky is currently ranked fourth in the 2011 Solheim standings for the European squad, following her impressive second place finish this past week at the Turkish Airlines Ladies Open. Originally from St. Asaph, Wales, Becky is the country's top-ranked female golfer, having represented Wales in all three of its team bids to date at the European Nations Cup. The Welsh team posted its personal best at the 2011 ENC last month in Alicante, Spain, which also marked Poodle's debut as the tournament's official clothing sponsor.

The ENC is a unique match play event on the Ladies European Tour, with 18 countries vying for national pride in 2-person teams, consisting of each country's two top-ranked players. Team Wales finished fourth at the ENC after England's Laura Davies sank a monster putt for eagle on 18 on the final day, to pull away at the last possible moment from a neck-and-neck third place tie with Wales. In a playful response to Laura's incredible parting shot, Becky picked up her putter in mock rifle pose, and shot back at the legendary Davies with an affectionate imaginary bullet, to the great entertainment of the gallery on the 18th green. Classic Laura, and classic Becky.

"Becky is such an amazing player," says Poodle founder and 'Top Dog' Wendy Byrne. "She's carrying all the critical elements of tour success in her bag: a fantastic golf game, a cool head, a truly personable style, and a great sense of humor. Plus there's that winning smile of hers that charms the crowd... Her name is consistently at the top of the leader board, and we're thrilled to have her with us sporting Poodle on tour, starting with this week's ISPS Handa Portugal Ladies Open. We were really flattered to discover that while we've been thinking seriously about her as a potential Poodle Pro this past year, it turned out that Becky was already a bit of a fan. We exchanged some promising emails this spring via her management company, but when Becky tried on our clothes for the first time, I knew from the smile on her face that we were the right fit for each other."

Poodle GolfBecky is also delighted with the new association: "I've liked the Poodle range of clothing since first spotting it out on tour - Wendy's players always look great out there," she explained. "I was really flattered when Wendy said I would look great in the clothing. I've loved trying out all the outfits, and now look forward to wearing Poodle on the golf course."

Poodle gear has been turning heads on the LET & LPGA fairways this past year, worn by Becky's fellow ENC participants Anastasia Kostina (RU), and Frederique Seeholzer (CH), as well as by Nathalie David-Mila (FR), Tiffany Tavee (USA), and Corisande Lee (UK).
