Bests Star-Studded Field to Claim Title for Second Time in Three Years.

ECCO confirms that Staff Player Graeme McDowell wore its luxurious World Class GTX golf shoes while capturing the World Challenge, contested this past weekend at Sherwood Country Club in Thousand Oaks, California.

Showcasing the ECCO logo on his headwear, G-Mac posted four sub-70 rounds to finish 17 under par, win his first title of the season and claim his second World Challenge trophy in three years.

Currently ranked among the world’s top-25 players, the 33-year-old has represented Europe as a member of the past three Ryder Cup teams. He’s now won nine times since 2002, highlighted by the 2010 U.S. Open where he became the first European champion in 40 years.

“Graeme’s a fan favorite around the globe and an exceptional brand ambassador,”
says Jesper Thuen, ECCO Global Marketing Manager – Golf. “He’s really played outstanding golf this season, and it’s nice to see him cap off the year with a great win.”
