June 14, 2010

ECCO staff player Thomas Bjorn wore its luxurious World Class GTX golf shoes en route to winning the Estoril Open de Portugal this past weekend at Penha Longa Golf Club.

Thomas Bjorn won the Estoril Open de Portugal wearing Ecco World Class GTX golf shoesBjorn fought through strong, swirling winds to post a final-round 68 and finish at 23-under par 265 for the week, five strokes clear of his nearest challenger. In capturing his 10th career European Tour title, and first in more than four years, the 39-year-old Dane moved inside The Race to Dubai top-40 and proved he's still capable of competing at the highest level.

"It feels it has been a long time in coming, but I have to be pleased," said Bjorn. "When I saw the weather conditions, I thought if shot somewhere in the 60s I would be difficult to beat. I made some great shots at the right time."

Bjorn's winning total was only one stroke short of the 24-under tournament record set by Colin Montgomerie at Quinta do Lago in 1989.

"Thomas is a legend in Denmark and has been part of the ECCO family since almost our first golf shoe collection," says Jesper Thuen, Sponsor and Event Manager, ECCO Golf. "He's really returned to form the past few weeks, not only with this incredible win but also his strong run at the Celtic Manor Wales Open and in qualifying for the Open Championship. We're truly excited by his prospects for the rest of the season."
