Ecco announced the extension of its endorsement agreement with Fred Couples, who will continue to compete in Ecco's Golf Street shoes and showcase the company's logo on his headwear.
As part of this multi-year agreement, Couples, will be featured in global marketing and advertising initiatives supporting the ECCO Golf Collection, and appear at company functions.
“I am thrilled to be continuing my relationship with ECCO,” says Couples. “They are a fabulous company making some of the world's most comfortable golf shoes. ECCO is also a leader in creating unique styles, like the Golf Street shoes that I can wear all day, on and off the golf course.”
In 2010, Couples became the first player in history to win three of his first four Champions Tour events. He went on to claim a fourth title and was honored as the Champions Tour Rookie of the Year and Byron Nelson Award winner.
ECCO golf shoes are also worn in competition by scores of international Tour stars, including Graeme McDowell, Aaron Baddeley, Stuart Appleby, Thomas Bjorn, Thongchai Jaidee, Thorbjorn Olesen, Andreas Harto, Gerina Piller, Belen Mozo and Jennifer Johnson.
