Two Sponsors Have A Very Good Round
The Masters had two early winners this week: Ecco, which makes the spikeless, sneaker-like shoes worn by a sockless Fred Couples on Thursday, and Bridgestone Golf, whose spokesgolfer Matt Kuchar was paired with Tiger Woods, and played well. Bridgestone's other pitchman: Mr. Couples, who led after the first round. Bridgestone estimated the value of the free air time was $2.3 million.
...If that inspires you to shop for modern threads, head to Art in the Age (116 N 3rd St.) a unique art/craft/design store that sells lady-run labels like Lauren Moffatt and Dear Creatures, and a rotating inventory from local designers...
Fred Couples Draws Attention to Ecco's Golf Sneakers at Augusta
By David Dusek
AUGUSTA, Ga -- Fred Couples is known as one of the most relaxed, easy-going players in golf. His swing is syrupy and he doesn't walk from hole to hole, he ambles.
But when it comes to his choice of golf shoes recently, he's taking it to a whole new level.
Get A Hold of Fred Couples' Ecco Golf Street Shoes
If you've been concerned that Fred Couples is going to do a fakey 540 at Augusta National, wondering why he is playing in sneakers, or just want to have the shoes of a winner, Ecco Golf makes Freddy's shoes. The model is called Ecco Golf Street, and they finally hit the streets in the US this week.
The shoes do look a lot like sneakers, but the nubs on the bottom of them are designed to act like golf cleats. They are more spread out and distributed so that the pressure on the frail back of a player like Couples is minimized.
A closer look at Fred Couples’ new kicks
Fred Couples created a stir at the Masters not just because of his play, but because of his sporty Ecco Street Premiere kicks.
With commentators referring to them as “skateboard shoes” and even questioning the technical abilities and functionality of the shoes, I figured I should get to the bottom of what they are all about.
Yes, they look like “skater shoes.” Yes, they are “spikeless.” And, yes, they make Freddie feel young again.
