More Aussie female golfers will compete on the the Ladies European Tour (LET) after FOX Sports extended its partnership for another three years.
From 2018 FOX Sports will provide Live coverage of LET events including the prestigious biennial Solheim Cup in August 2019.
As part of the partnership, FOX Sports will work with the ALPG to give up-and-coming Australian golfers the opportunity to compete under a sponsored entrant arrangement.
The Gold Coast’s Amy Walsh is the first beneficiary of the new partnership after being chosen to compete in the Ladies European Thailand Championship starting on July 6th.
FOX Sports Director of Acquisitions, Rebecca McCloy said: “This is a very unique arrangement that’s part of our wider commitment to supporting niche and women’s sports. It will provide more pathways for our rising female golf stars to compete against the best in the world and help them reach their goals.”
ALPG CEO, Karen Lunn, said: “ALPG is delighted that our partnership with FOX Sports will provide our members with a unique opportunity to compete in selected events on one of the major women’s golf tours.”
Amy Walsh said: “This new arrangement with FOX Sports and the LET is very exciting. It will provide more opportunities for players like me to compete in main tour events around the world. Hopefully I can make the most of what will be a great week in Thailand on the LET.”
