World #3 Brooke Henderson joins Skechers performance team
LOS ANGELES, Calif. (September 2, 2016) –Skechers Performance™, a division of SKECHERS USA, Inc. (NYSX:SKX), announces today that LPGA rising star and World number three golfer, Brooke Henderson, will join the roster of elite Skechers GO GOLF athletes. The LPGA champion signed a multi-year global deal with Skechers Performance and will be featured in marketing campaigns for Skechers GO GOLF footwear.
“From the moment I tried the shoes and tested them on the course, I immediately loved the Skechers GO GOLF line,” said Henderson, who is teeing it up this week at the Manulife LPGA Classic. “I can’t think of a better fit for me and I’m excited for the opportunity to represent the brand. The exceptional product has really helped me with my game.”
At 18 years old, Henderson returned home to her native Canada after a solid performance in Rio. One month prior to Rio, Henderson had her first Major win at the KPMG Women’s PGA Championship on June 16, 2016. As an amateur in 2014, Henderson’s 10th place tie for the 2014 Women’s US Open quickly positioned her as the top ranking woman amateur golfer in the world at the age of 16. Since her professional debut in December of that same year, Henderson has continued to climb with a current rank of number three in the world.
“We really love Brooke’s game, and her input is going to be so valuable,” said Skechers Performance Senior Vice President Merchandising/Marketing, Rick Higgins. “She’s just getting started, and we’re thrilled to be partnering with her.”
Henderson will be wearing Skechers Performance GO GOLF footwear as part of the sponsorship. Known for its innovative designs and award winning comfort, GO GOLF offers everyone from leisurely players to professional golfers a comfortable innovative shoe that can be worn on and off the course.
As Skechers Performance enters it’s fourth year with the GO GOLF line, Brooke Henderson is in excellent company, joining world-class golfers Matt Kuchar, Russell Knox, Colin Montgomerie, Billy Andrade, Belen Mozo, and Ashlan Ramsey who are Skechers GO GOLF ambassadors.
Skechers GO GOLF is available at Skechers retail stores, select retail partners including golf pro shops, and online at Skechers.com.
