Once re­ferred to as the “Coolest Golfer of all Time” by a golf pub­li­ca­tion, Cou­ples will con­tinue to com­pete with the ECCO Golf logo on the side of his hat, and show­case the Dan­ish com­pany’s mul­ti­award win­ning Hy­brid shoes dur­ing tour­na­ment play.

“I’ve com­peted in ECCO Golf shoes for a decade now, and I can hon­estly say I can’t see a time where I wear any­thing else,” said Cou­ples. “The com­fort pro­vided is sec­ond-tonone and I love the look of the new in­no­va­tions com­ing in 2017.”

One of the most pop­u­lar golfers to ever pick up a club, Cou­ples has cap­tured 15 PGA Tour ti­tles, in­clud­ing the 1992 Masters. His other no­table achieve­ments in­clude win­ning the 1984 and 1996 PLAY­ERS Cham­pi­onships, twice earn­ing PGA Tour Player of the Year and Var­don Tro­phy honours in the same sea­son (’91, ’92), sub­se­quently be­com­ing the first Amer­i­can to reach No. 1 in the Of­fi­cial World Golf Rank­ings (six years af­ter the sys­tem de­buted).

Since join­ing the Cham­pi­ons Tour in 2011, Cou­ples has won 11 ti­tles, high­lighted by the 2012 Se­nior Open Cham­pi­onship and 2011 Se­nior Play­ers Cham­pi­onship.

“Fred Cou­ples is syn­ony­mous with ECCO Golf,” said Jes­per Thuen, Head of ECCO Golf – Asia-pa­cific and re­spon­si­ble for spon­sor­ship. “I’m de­lighted that our agree­ment has been ex­tended as he’s been an in­cred­i­ble am­bas­sador for us.”
