If you think neon disco balls or rainbow-colored thunderbolts electrifying your golf shorts are just for those guys at your course who pound down the brewskis and drive their go-carts all over the greens, then you’re not keeping up with Loudmouth Golf. In fact, with John Daly’s favorite designer adding LPGA player Amelia Lewis to its growing team of young professional women golfers, Loudmouth is not your obnoxious brother-in-law’s clothing brand.
The San Mateo, Calif.-based clothing outfitter announced Tuesday that Lewis had joined Sara Brown, Meaghan Francella, Stacy Prammanasudh, Jess Noh, Sarah Oh, and Carling Coffing as LPGA players proud to sport their Loudmouth colors on golf courses all over the world. Lewis, who earned her Ladies European Tour card in January, began her 2012 season with a T22 finish at last week’s Australian Ladies Masters.
The 20-year-old from Jacksonville, Fla., had a stellar amateur career that included 51 titles and that peaked when she was ranked third in Golfweek’s 2010 women’s amateur rankings before she turned pro that same year. “Loudmouth Golf is a company that has broken the mold and set trends on numerous professional golf tours,” Lewis said in a statement. “They are not afraid to think outside the box and bring original fun ideas to the game of golf. I am so thrilled to be joining the Loudmouth team in 2012 and to represent this trendsetting company in the game I love.” As someone who, just about a year ago, would have never considered hitting the links in anything but your typical khaki, black, or navy golf uniform, I can attest to the fact that braving the course in my first pair of tame (relatively speaking) Loudmouth Red Tooth shorts was a blast. Now the unabashed owner of two outrageous designs (and looking for more), I’ll be sure to keep a lookout for Lewis and the other Loudmouth sisters in all their wild and crazy sartorial splendor.
