Tuesday, December 10, 2013
ECCO golf has announced the signing of four-time major champion Ernie Els, who will wear the hybrid golf shoes and show the company logo on his headwear.
“ECCO has clearly struck on the winning formula,” says Els. “They make shoes that look great, are incredibly comfortable, can be worn almost anywhere and offer the kind of stability a guy like me really needs on the course.”
As part of a multi-year agreement, Els will be seen worldwide wearing the current collection, which includes the Street EVO One, BIOM Hybrid and Tour Hybrid models.
“Ernie’s style, iconic swing and incredibly gracious personality make him one of the game’s truly unique figures,” says Jesper Thuen, Global Sponsorship, PR & Event Manager of ECCO Golf. “He’s been a big fan and supporter of ECCO since the dawn of the hybrid golf shoe revolution, and will now be a very high-profile ambassador for years to come.”
