Puma presenterar ett samarbete mellan Puma Golf och finske Europatourspelaren Kim Koivu som innebär att han kommer att spela i Pumas kläder och skor.

Kim tog sig upp från Challengetouren till Europatouren via en så kallad battlefield promotion där han med tre segrar under 2018 direkt fick sitt medlemskap på huvudtouren. En av de segrarna var Rolex Trophy som han vann med sex slag före tvåan på totalt 22 under par.

Vi är förtjusta över möjligheten att jobba med Kim när han ger sig ut på sitt första år på Europatouren, säger Joe Folker, COBRA PUMA Golf’s Brand Experience Manager. Under sin korta karriär som golfproffs har han redan visat vad han går för med ett fantastiskt genombrott på Challengetouren 2018. Det ska bli riktigt spännande att följa hans utveckling på Europatouren när han spelar i Pumas kläder och skor. Kim och Puma passar perfekt ihop och vi är väldigt stolta över att ha honom i vårt team av golfspelare i världsklass.

Jag är väldigt glad över att bli en del av Puma och representera dem på Europatouren den här säsongen, säger Kim Koivu. Jag har varit ett fan av detta fantastiska märke en lång tid och ser fram emot att jobba tillsammans med Puma framöver.
