Leading golf footwear innovator ECCO Golf has announced the addition of Swedish European Tour player Peter Hanson to its already impressive list of ambassadors.
Hanson has amassed 13 wins worldwide since turning pro in 1998 and been a part of two winning European Ryder Cup sides.
He recorded five top-20 finishes on the European Tour in 2015, including a tie for seventh at the BMW International Open and a tie for 13th at the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship.
“ECCO has an outstanding reputation within the game and their combination of style and performance is exactly what I look for in a golf shoe,” says Hanson. “The new ECCO CAGE design feels fantastically stable and delivers comfort from the first tee to the 18th green and beyond.”
“Having played at the highest level in some of the biggest tournaments around the world, Peter is the perfect fit for the ECCO brand,” added Jesper Thuen, responsible for global sponsorship at ECCO Golf.
“After a strong start to 2016, we’re confident that he’ll join the winner’s circle on the European Tour again very soon.”
Showcasing a lightweight, low-to-the-ground construction and the CHAMP® SLIM-Lok cleat system, ECCO CAGE is crafted at ECCO-owned factories using the Direct-injection Process. This bonds the upper and outsole unit, creating a one-piece shoe without the use of glue or stitching. Benefits include a firm, water-tight seal.
In addition to Hanson, the ECCO Golf collection is worn in competition by Fred Couples, Ernie Els, Graeme McDowell, Thomas Bjørn, Thongchai Jaidee, Will Wilcox, Ben Evans, Jim Renner, Minjee Lee, Caroline Masson, Gerina Piller, Jennifer Johnson, Kendall Dye, Pernilla Lindberg, Therese Koelbaek and Liz Young, among others.
