Alison Nicholas is pictured with The Solheim Cup trophy at the BTME 2010 trade exhibition at Harrogate, where the new partnership announcement was made on Tuesday 19th July. “As the Ladies European Tour schedule expands, it’s great to have such a good partner in John Deere supporting our efforts to grow the women’s game,” said Alison. “I’m also very excited by the challenge of captaining the European team again at The Solheim Cup at the wonderful Killeen Castle course in 2011. I’m very confident in my team and our ability to regain the trophy next year.”
