Nordqvist, a two-time winner on the LPGA Tour and winner of the 2009 LPGA Championship, will play TaylorMade metalwoods and irons and will wear adidas Golf apparel and footwear per her new contract.

The 26-year-old Swede turned professional in 2008 following a successful amateur career in both Europe and the United States which included Swedish Junior Player of the Year honors in 2004 and 2005, Pacific Athletic Conference (Pac-10) Player of the Year and co-champion honors in 2007, as well as membership on the victorious Swedish team at the 2008 World Amateur Team Championships.
