McDowell, 34, will be featured in global marketing and advertising initiatives for ECCO in addition to appearing at various company functions.McDowell, who has been an ECCO Tour staffer for most of his career on the European and PGA Tour, wears the company’s BIOM Hybrid golf shoe.“For a long time on Tour I’ve been wearing the World Class style which is quite traditional and goes great with a pair of classic-looking trousers,” says McDowell. “But for casual rounds at Lake Nona or even hanging out at Nona Blue it’s been BIOM Hybrid all the way and I may just choose those to go with some new outfits for next season.”ECCO has also unveiled their new World Class shoe style, which is a traditionally-styled luxury shoe.  It features an outsole combining water-repellant leather with cushioning PU and wear-resistant TPU. The classic brogue upper is crafted from leathers that are tanned using an exclusive HYDROMAX™ treatment. This ensures long-lasting suppleness while helping protect a player’s feet against even the harshest weather.Related Links: ECCO Signs Ernie Els As Brand AmbassadorOther Hot Links:- TV Preview: Back9Network Original Programming- PGA Tour Pro John Peterson Practices On Icy Interstate- When Golf Carts Attack!
