SIGVARIS Cotton Golf Socks
As a tribute to such an extraordinary golfer, SIGVARIS’ Cotton Golf Sock box features Lincicome playing golf. “Lincicome is an inspiration to female golfers around the world and is a wonderful role model for young girls,” says Charles Handschin, president and CEO for the SIGVARIS Americas. “We are honored to have Brittany Lincicome featured on the front of the women’s box. She illustrates that hard work does pay off.”
Lincicome’s win on Sunday makes it her fourth LPGA title. “Battling it out with the world’s best golfers can be both mentally and physically exhausting,”
Lincicome is not the only golfer sporting the SIGVARIS Cotton Golf Socks from the Active Therapy Line. In a field study of professional and recreational golfers, 86 percent of participants said their legs and/or ankles felt less tired and achy after wearing these socks, and more than 95 percent said they would recommend these socks to a fellow golfer. The Cotton Golf Socks are available at PGA TOUR Superstores.
A growing trend among competitive athletes is the use of compression therapy socks to help improve their game. Wearing true graduated compression, compression that is tightest at the ankle, during and after exercise or competition can help flush out lactic acid and provide symptomatic relief of delayed onset leg muscle soreness.
SIGVARIS, through the Active Therapy line of socks, has several strategic partnerships in place with established endurance sports organizations in North America, including: Road Runner’s Club of America (RRCA), USProTri, Southern Crescent Cycling Club, Cross Country Canada (CCC-skiing)
