US Curtis Cup sensation Alexis Thompson has turned professional at the age of 15 and in doing so has signed a lucrative sponsorship with Cobra-Puma Golf.
Thompson has an impressive amateur pedigree with a 4-0-1 record in the Curtis Cup and an appearance at the US Women's Open in 2007 where she became the youngest ever player at the age of 12.
She will be supported by Cobra-Puma Golf, who make Thompson their first ever sponsee following the Cobra and Puma merge in spring. Bob Philion, president of Cobra-Puma Golf, said: "Lexi's style and groundbreaking performance on the course make her the perfect Cobra and Puma Golf representative.
"Our brands are well suited to her game right now and are poised to progress with her career in the future, while she develops as a professional golfer."
"I am proud to represent Cobra and PUMA Golf," she said. "Not only do both brands make great, technically advanced products that will help me play better on the course, but I've always loved them both for their edge and style.
"In my last amateur event, I played a Cobra S2 Driver and S2 Forged irons, and look forward to wearing my new PUMA gear at my first professional event in June." She debuts at the LPGA ShopRite Classic in New Jersey, June 18-20.
