The Italian golfer was the very first sportswoman ever to attract the discerning eye of Richard Mille. One of the world’s top women golfers and an unmissable star, setting off in the world’s most prestigious tournaments with style and class. But it’s not just about winning. A true Roman at heart, the most important thing in Diana’s life is her family. It was therefore only natural that she should join the family which is Richard Mille.
‘Before, I never wore a watch when I played. Now I take my RM 07-01 all the way, everday.’
For many years at Italy's number 1 spot, Diana was ranked among Europe’s Top 10 women golfers - notably thanks to five memorable wins on the Ladies European Tour. At the German Ladies Open in 2011, she became the first female player in history to go 72 holes without losing a shot – a feat only a handful of men accomplished.
The idea of becoming a professional golfer came naturally for this fan of the ‘beautiful game’, who remembers hitting her first balls at the age of 12. At 19, she focused totally on competition through the professional circuit. With her naive expression, Diana Luna still seems amazed: ‘I’m lucky, aren’t I?’
There’s a reason why her competitions and achievements have been largely European : Diana has always made family life a priority rather than chasing after the big ‘prize money’ she would undoubtedly command across the Atlantic. A choice which commands respect.
Diana is taking up today a new challenge as Team Manager of the italian ladies golf professionals.
