British golf legend Colin Montgomerie’s dramatic win at the Invesco QQQ Championship in Thousand Oaks, California, earned him a #4 ranking on the PGA Tour. He competes in Skechers GO GOLF footwear and Skechers-branded apparel.
Montgomerie won the QQQ Championship play-off after coming from five shots behind by shooting a tournament course-record 63 on the last round. “It was an exciting final day, and I felt great in that last round coming back from the eighth position. Then in the playoff, the bunker gave my opponent trouble, so there was also some luck on my side,” he said.
“There’s nothing like a win, and I’m happy to be supported on and off the field by so many, including Skechers and its comfortable and reliable golf shoes,” he said. “I’m ready to make a run for the Championship.”
Montgomerie has been wearing Skechers Performance footwear and garments for the past four years and has been featured in ongoing marketing campaigns for the brand. He wore the Skechers GO GOLF Elite 4 shoes when he won, which is known for its lightweight, high-quality, stable and comfortable designs.
Known affectionately as Monty, the golfer can look back on a prestigious career that included many highlights – for example, two-time Senior Major winner, eight-time European Order of Merit winner, and the winning Ryder Cup team captain. He rose to fame in the 1990s during an unprecedented seven-year run as Europe’s #1 player and has earned more prize money than any British golfer in history.
“We couldn’t be more thrilled to be part of Colin Montgomerie’s latest win as he gets closer to the Charles Schwab Cup finale,” said Michael Greenberg, president of Skechers. “Colin is a legend among legends. To see him swinging that club with Skechers on his sleeve and earning a tournament course record in Skechers GO GOLF is integral to building awareness for the brand within the golf community. We know how much this incredible achievement means to his fans and Skechers Performance will be there with him on tour looking for the next one.”
