ECCO® GOLF ambassador, Lydia Ko, fired a new tournament record of 28-under-par to claim her first win in over two years on Saturday at the LOTTE Championship on the LPGA Tour.
The Kiwi has made a strong start to 2021, with a run of high finishes – including second place at the ANA Inspiration – reminiscent of the form which took her to world number one. This week, wearing ECCO BIOM G3, Ko shot four rounds in the sixties to win by seven shots in Hawaii.
“Hand on my heart, I know there were times that I wondered ‘Hey, I don’t know if I’m ever going to be back in the winner’s circle.’ But I’m obviously grateful for everything that has happened in my career, and I believe that we’re in the position that we’re meant to be in,” said Ko.
“I knew it wasn’t going to be easy, especially around a golf course like this. The scores can be really low, and it doesn’t matter how far back you are, you can always be in it. I just continued to stick to my game plan,” she added.
Jesper Thuen, responsible for sponsorship at ECCO GOLF, said: “This victory well and truly proves that Lydia is back at the top of the game.
“We are excited to see Lydia back in the winner’s circle, and we look forward to giving her our continued support as she continues to ascend to the top of the world game.”
Ko claimed victory wearing women’s ECCO BIOM® G3, a design which features smooth ECCO performance leather and a waterproof GORE-TEX construction that keeps feet dry and comfortable in all conditions.
The shoe is also highlighted by exceptional support and comfort with ECCO GOLF’s renowned BIOM® NATURAL MOTION® last that combines low-to-the-ground stability with a glove-like fit that is built for natural motion.
In addition to Lydia Ko, ECCO GOLF shoes are worn in competition around the world by Caroline Masson, Minjee Lee, Henrik Stenson, Fred Couples, Erik van Rooyen and Thomas Bjørn, among others. For further information about ECCO GOLF, please visit golf.ecco.com.
