Brentwood, Tenn. (PRWEB) November 11, 2013
Swiftwick, a leading producer of athletic compression socks, is proud to announce that sponsored athlete Robert Hogan has won the 2013 International Speedgolf Championship. The championship took place on Oct. 26 and 27 at the Bend Golf Club in Bend, Ore.
Hogan, who took home 7th during last year’s inaugural event, was one of more than a dozen athletes wearing the Swiftwick SUSTAIN One socks during the championship.
“I find compression socks to be extremely helpful while competing and while training,” said Hogan. “During training, compression ensures I stay pain free. During competition Swiftwick socks are especially helpful during fast interval running due to the stress from constant twisting and turning that you don’t typically experience on a regular run.”
In addition to sponsoring Hogan and other speedgolf athletes, Swiftwick was also a sponsor of the championship itself.
“Swiftwick socks are already a staple in both the golf and running world,” said Mark Cleveland, CEO of Swiftwick. “It’s only natural for us to expand into speedgolf. Our socks offer compression, moisture-wicking technology and a superior fit that makes them comfortable for athletes who really have to be nimble and quick on their feet in order to succeed in the sport.”
Hogan, a native of Ireland, was able to post the fastest time during both days of the competition. His final score was 236.55.
“Hogan’s performance in winning this tournament was truly spectacular,” said Tim Scott, executive director of Speedgolf International. “To shoot such low scores on consecutive days is just phenomenal. As speedgolf continues to grow, players at the elite level will get fitter, the golf will get better and scores will continue to get even lower. We have a lot to look forward to.”
