Skechers Performance Debuts Go Golf Pro 2; Renews Sponsorship with Matt Kuchar

The Rivet 50 is calling for nominations for leaders in the denim industry in 5 categories: design, influencer, leadership, sustainability and supply chain. Nominations close on May 23.

Skechers Performance has re-upped its sponsorship with pro golfer Matt Kuchar, who will continue to represent the company’s Go Golf brand on the PGA Tour and in Skechers Go Golf global marketing campaigns. At the same time, the company has announced the launch of the Skechers Go Golf Pro 2 for Spring 2017.

“Working with Skechers Performance has been extremely rewarding,” said Kuchar. “Their team has been a creative force and is on the cutting edge of design, bringing me the best footwear possible and keeping me at the top of my game. The shoes I wear need to be stable and secure on the green, and Skechers Performance has that perfect balance, giving me the highest functionality while remaining the most comfortable golf shoes I’ve ever worn.“

Spectators will get a first look at the new spring 2017 Skechers Go Golf Pro 2 this week, as Kuchar steps up to tee off. The model will also be worn by fellow Skechers Performance pro and 2016 PGA TOUR winner Russell Knox. The Skechers Go Golf Pro 2 merges Skechers Performance’s comfort and technology and features Skechers Performance’s new 5GEN midsole foam cushioning and a new dual density outsole with an integrated grip technology to provide stability through the athlete’s swing. The Skechers Go Golf Pro 2 will be available in two waterproof leather uppers, giving the golfer an upgraded premium option. It will be released to consumers later this year.


“Our partnership with Matt has been invaluable in growing our golf business,” said Rick Higgins, senior vice president, merchandising/marketing, Skechers Performance. “His input on developing the footwear has helped us build some of the most competitive golf shoes on the market and on top of that, he is a first-class guy to work with. We’ve had a lot of fun shooting our Golf School commercial spots with him – they allow everyone to see that great side of Matt’s personality.”
