Danish brand ECCO has announced the signing of German star Marcel Siem, who will wear the brand’s luxurious golf shoes in competitions worldwide and showcase the ECCO logo on his headwear.
“The ECCO brand is remarkably well known and respected for the quality of its shoes throughout Germany and the rest of northern Europe,” said Siem.
“This is especially true of the golf collection and the Tour Hybrid in particular, which looks like a traditional shoe but offers me the convenience of a spikeless outsole.”
A three-time winner on the European Tour, Siem is currently ranked No. 58 in the Official World Golf Ranking. The 32-year-old plays a global schedule that includes a significant number of PGA Tour events.
“Marcel finished just outside the top 10 in Europe last year and has played at an impressive level on the PGA Tour as well in 2013,” says Jesper Thuen, ECCO Global Sponsorship and PR Manager – Golf.
“Having him on our team will further strengthen ECCO Golf brand awareness in key markets worldwide.”
ECCO golf shoes are also worn in competition by Tour stars Fred Couples, Graeme McDowell, Thomas Bjorn, Thongchai Jaidee, Stuart Appleby, Andreas Hartø, Wu Ashun, JB Hansen, Belén Mozo, Gerina Piller, Caroline Masson and Line Vedel Hansen.
