MANHATTAN BEACH, Calif.—-Skechers celebrates brand ambassador Matt Kuchar’s victory at the SMBC Singapore Open on the Serapong Course at the Sentosa Golf Club in Singapore. Kuchar—who competes wearing Skechers GO GOLF® footwear—finished at 18 under par overall and overcame a triple bogey in the final round to end up winning by three strokes. This victory builds off the excitement of his dramatic birdie helping the U.S. team win the Presidents Cup in December.
“Following his strong 2019 season, we believe Matt Kuchar’s win in Singapore this weekend will be a bright omen for the season ahead”
“My game took an unexpected turn on the seventh hole, but I was proud to be able to overcome that and regain my focus,” said Matt Kuchar. “I really thank the team at Skechers for supporting me along the way and making sure I stay comfortable on the course.”
“Following his strong 2019 season, we believe Matt Kuchar’s win in Singapore this weekend will be a bright omen for the season ahead,” said Michael Greenberg, president of Skechers. “We’re proud to be along for the ride as we watch and cheer with the fans.

Kuchar has been a leading and respected golfer since breaking onto the golf scene as the U.S. amateur champion in 1998 and as a pro he remains a perennial fixture atop leaderboards. This past season, he earned two victories in a season for the first time since 2013 and also helped the U.S. squad beat the international team at the Presidents Cup. In 2016, Kuchar won a bronze for the United States at the Olympics and was also part of the victorious U.S. team at the Ryder Cup. With more than 100 top-10 finishes since 2001 and now ten overall Tour titles, Kuchar currently sits at number 20 on the Official World Golf Rankings.
Kuchar was one of the first elite pros to join the Skechers Performance Golf Team in 2014. The brand’s roster of elite golfers wearing Skechers GO GOLF also includes Brooke Henderson, Colin Montgomerie, and Billy Andrade. Kuchar has driven several Skechers GO GOLF marketing campaigns with a series of humorous commercials.
