LONDONDERRY, N.M. -- Danish company ECCO - a leading manufacturer of innovative footwear - announces a special contest hosted now at facebook.com/eccogolf providing the chance to win a one-of-a-kind, hand-signed pair of Fred Couples' limited-edition BIOM Hybrids.

Until midnight EST on Sunday, April 13, ECCO Golf fans can share an image or comment that shows or describes how, like Freddie, they personify cool on the golf course. One submission per day is permitted. In addition to the remarkable grand prize, ECCO will also be giving away premium shoes or accessories to three runners up.

"We couldn't think of a better way to celebrate the year's first major than to give our legions of supporters the opportunity to win a very special piece of memorabilia," says Jesper Thuen, Global Sponsorship, PR & Event Manager - ECCO Golf. "This is a truly unique prize that any golfer would love to have in their collection."

In addition to the contest, ECCO recently introduced a Fred Couples Signature Model of its award-winning BIOM Hybrid shoe. This limited-edition of 275 pairs celebrates the Tour star's winning score of 13-under-par 275 at the 1992 championship. Each shoe is laser-engraved with Couples' distinctive autograph on the lateral (outer) side of the yak leather upper, matched by a serial number on the medial (inner) side.

Retailing for $275, the Fred Couples Signature Model is available at eccousa.com, pgatoursuperstore.com, golfsmith.com and carlsgolfland.com. It showcases two patented performance technologies - NATURAL MOTION and the ECCO Dynamic Traction System
(E-DTS). These combine to provide the ultimate combination of comfort, stability, grip and shock-absorption.
