Ecco – the Danish manufacturer of the world’s most comfortable and technically advanced footwear – has signed defending US Open Champion Graeme McDowell to compete wearing the newly-launched Comfort Classic golf shoes, as well as sporting the brand's logo on his cap.

The multi-year agreement also means that McDowell, who is currently No. 5 in the Official World Golf Ranking, will feature in the global marketing and advertising initiatives supporting the Ecco Golf Collection, and appear at company functions.

“I had a lot of success last year and that led to some great new opportunities in terms of my equipment,” says McDowell. “When it came to footwear, partnering with Ecco was the best choice. The leather quality is quite amazing and the comfort is way beyond anything I’ve experienced before. I’m really looking forward to getting out on the course and experiencing the difference it makes in competition.”

McDowell made history in 2010 when he became the first European in 40 years to win the U.S. Open Championship. The 31-year-old native of Northern Ireland also secured the winning point for the European Ryder Cup team, and captured titles at the Chevron World Challenge, Celtic Manor Wales Open and Andalucia Valderrama Masters.
