ECCO GOLF has announced the signing of Ryder Cup star and major champion Henrik Stenson as a brand ambassador.
The 43-year-old Swede has put pen-to-paper on a multi-year agreement with the Danish shoe brand and will compete around the world wearing Ecco Golf’s hybrid shoes.
“I’m delighted to be joining forces with Ecco Golf,” said Stenson. “They are a brand I have long admired due to their passion for innovation, quality and style. I can look back at my career to date with a lot of pride at the things that I have achieved, and I have no doubt that there are plenty more highlights to come wearing Ecco Golf shoes.”
He added: “I have never worn hybrid shoes to compete before, but as soon as I tried the Ecco models, I was amazed by both the comfort and traction they provided. I honestly can’t see myself wearing cleats again.”
Jesper Thuen, responsible for sponsorship at Ecco Golf, commented: “It is no exaggeration to say that Henrik is one of the best and most well-respected golfers of our generation, so we are thrilled that he has signed with us. It is a real coup to have him representing the Ecco Golf brand around the world and we look forward to seeing him add more titles to his already illustrious list of achievements.”
In addition to Stenson, Ecco Golf shoes are worn in competition around the world by Lydia Ko, Minjee Lee, Caroline Masson, Fred Couples, Erik van Rooyen, Doc Redman and Thomas Bjørn, among others.
