The three-time winner on the Ladies European Tour has linked up with the bookmaker for the two-minute video which tackles male chauvinism in sport.

In the ad, Booth is the target of disparaging remarks by a bloke in the pub who is watching her on TV and boasts he could beat her “with his eyes closed”.

Egged on by his friend, the man direct messages Booth and challenges her to a round, adding that he doesn’t expect a reply because she’ll be “too busy cooking”.

But the Comrie golfer responds with the words “No problem gammon head” and arranges to play him.

Despite his best efforts to put her off, Booth wins easily and tells her opponent to “stick to the kitchen sweetheart”.

Booth, meanwhile, has withdrawn from this week’s Saudi Ladies Team International and next week’s Andalucia Costa del Sol Open due to a shoulder injury.
