Calvin Klein Golf, operated under license by Premium Golf Brands (PGB), announced today that it has entered into a sponsorship agreement with 20 year old British professional female golfer Henni Zuël.

Henni became England’s Under-13s Champion, the English Under-15 Champion, Central European Under-16 Champion, and in 2007, she went on to win the Girl’s British Amateur Championship.

Her incredible talent has been widely recognized, winning The Daily Telegraph’s Joyce Wethered Award for best up and coming young golfer in 2007 and a year later she received a nomination in the ‘Home-Grown New Talent’ category at Britain’s Best Awards. Henni turned professional at the age of 18.

“Henni is a fantastic, talented young player and we are proud to have her on board as a brand ambassador for Calvin Klein Golf,” said Tom Murry, President & Chief Executive Officer, Calvin Klein, Inc.

“Henni epitomizes the balance of natural talent and flawless style that we want to represent the Calvin Klein Golf brand,” said Grahame Jenkins, Managing Director of Premium Golf Brands. “We look forward to following her progress on the tour this year.”

Henni will wear Calvin Klein Golf apparel during all of her upcoming Ladies European Tour golf events. Henni kicked off her 2010 season in March, in apparel from the Spring/Summer 2010 Calvin Klein Golf line in Morocco at the Lalla Meryem Cup at the Royal Golf Anfa Mohammedia, where she tied for 4th place.

“I am very impressed by Calvin Klein Golf.  The apparel looks great and offers the perfect balance of style, performance, and comfort on the course,” said Henni. “I am very proud to have been selected to represent the Calvin Klein Golf brand and am looking forward to seeing the new introductions in the coming months.”

The men’s and women’s Calvin Klein Golf range is available at retail from leading golf specialty stores and resorts in over twenty European countries including Spain, UK, Ireland, Portugal, Germany, Finland, Turkey, and Sweden.
