Sixty set their sights on competing at the Campo Olimpico de Golfe. The Skechers Performance ambassador was the only American to win.
Skechers Performance is celebrating the return of Go Golf brand ambassador, Matt Kuchar, who represented the United States and finished with a bronze medal in the Men’s Individual Golf category at the Rio Olympics. An eagle and six birdies helped propel him to a tournament-tying record 63.
The round was one stroke out of silver position and three back from gold. After 112-year absence, 60 athletes from around the world, including four U.S. contenders, set their sights on the historic moment to compete at the Campo Olimpico de Golfe. Kuchar was the only American to secure a win.
Known as one of the most consistent players on the PGA Tour over the past 12 years, the Georgia resident was tapped by Skechers Performance as a brand ambassador and to help design Skechers Go Golf footwear, including the shoes he wore on the course in Brazil.
He is joined by other golf champions who make up the elite team—like Ashlan Ramsey, Billy Andrade, Colin Montgomerie, Belen Mozo, and Russell Knox. Known for its lightweight designs, comfort, and stability, the brand achieved prominence since launching nearly four years ago.
“Matt encompasses what it means to be a true champion. We’re thrilled to have him represent both Skechers Performance and the United States. It was inspiring watching him make the podium in Rio and we are incredibly proud of his accomplishment,” said Michael Greenberg, President of Skechers.
