Puma Golf has signed Viktor Hovland to an exclusive shoe-only agreement. The Norwegian star has been wearing Puma’s Ignite Articulate model for more than one year.

“I started wearing PUMA shoes because I really liked the style and comfort,” said Hovland, who was one-under-par going into today’s second round of the Masters. “Shoes are critical for me because I use my feet to read greens. I’ve worked closely with the PUMA team to build shoes that perform well with AimPoint and are very comfortable.” 

According to the Official World Golf Rankings, Hovland is currently the 6th ranked player in the world. A standout at Oklahoma State, Hovland won the 2018 U.S. Amateur and reached number one in the Amateur Golf Ranking in 2019, when he also finished as low amateur in the Masters and the US Open. Since turning professional after the ’19 US Open, Hovland has won six PGA Tour events, including the ’23 Tour Championship, and two European Tour events, including the ’23 BMW Championship. Hovland also captured back-to-back Hero World Challenge titles in ’21 and ’22.

“We are extremely happy to welcome Viktor to the Puma Golf family,” said Dan Ladd, president of Cobra Puma Golf. “He’s one of the most talented and charismatic young players in the game and we look forward to a long relationship. Shoes are very important to Viktor because he uses his feet to read greens. We have built him shoes that work for AimPoint, but also look and feel great on the course.”
