Guest written by Annabel Dimmock - Part One of Six
My name is Annabel Dimmock, and as a partner of TRENDYGOLF, I wanted to give you an insight into who I am, my golf career to date, some fashion tips and tricks, and my views on the women’s game. I hope you enjoy it!
First of all, I’ve been playing golf for as long as I remember! I’m heading into my 7th year on tour, and I can’t wait to get going. My career highlight to date would be picking up my first win at the Jabra Ladies Open in 2019 and I’m working hard to get into the winners’ circle again this year. Being out on tour is a dream. I feel especially lucky to play golf for a living, to travel to cool places and make some great friendships on the way makes it extra special.
I feel like golf is in a good place at the moment. The Ladies European Tour is making huge strides and it’s great to see women’s golf get the support it needs. I hope this helps us to inspire the next generation of talent coming through. I think it’s so important to empower women and girls to go out and achieve anything they believe in. Initiatives such as International Women’s Day really help to drive change in the world. They inspire and give women a real moment in the spotlight.
It's not just the tour making this change though, brands are now recognising the needs of the female athlete and focussing their attention on this area. I’m fortunate to have an amazing relationship with adidas, a brand that are putting women in sport front and centre of their work in 2022. It’s great to work so closely with a brand that is driving change, not just with the products they make, but through marketing and brand philosophies.
adidas is definitely one of the more forward-thinking brands. They really understand my style and listen to what I like. The offering is so sporty and modern and just my kind of thing. I love that they’re eco-friendly and make clothes out of recycled plastics as well. I love that they aren’t scared to push the boundaries of what’s deemed acceptable golf attire, which we saw when Tyrrell Hatton won at Wentworth (my home club) wearing a hoodie. It won’t go down well at every club, but people need to move with the times. I think some people forget that we play golf to have fun and being able to wear cool clothing helps us express our personalities. As long as you aren’t scruffy then I’m all for wearing what feels comfortable for you.
Right, I’m off to the range! I hope you enjoyed this post, make sure you look out for more from me over the season on TRENDYGOLF’s website.
