Tutta Signs With Nike Golf

Isn't that an adorable nickname? Though I've got to admit, to my American ears it sounds more suited to a diminutive puppy dog than a statuesque blond golf beauty.

Tutta is Suzann Petersen, the gorgeous Norwegian LPGA superstar who's now No. 2 in the world. Despite her memorable collapse at Kraft Nabisco, where she lost to Morgan Pressel, she had a stellar 2007, and most feel she has the best chance to present a challenge to World No. 1 Lorena Ochoa this year. And it seems Suzann will be starting 2008 with a swoosh...a Nike swoosh. She just signed a multi-year contract with Nike Golf. Currently her contract covers clubs, balls, bag, footwear and gloves, however rumor has it she'll eventually be wearing the awesome Nike golf apparel.

In any case I'm looking forward to see what Tutta can do in 2008.
