The 26-year-old, two-time winner on the Ladies European Tour, Carly Booth faced backlash online after announcing a new sponsor: Golf Saudi. The Scottish golfer announced the development on her Twitter on Tuesday.
The tweet read – “I am honoured to represent @Golf_Saudi as they acknowledge that women in sport is of paramount importance,” Booth wrote. “Although culturally they are in a different place to some countries, they are doing everything they can to introduce girls and women into sport and lead healthy lifestyles.”
It didn’t take long for the social media to catch fire and pour heavy backlash on the player.
