(MANHATTAN BEACH, Calif.) — Skechers Performance - a division of Skechers USA - congratulates GO GOLF pro athlete, Matt Atkins, on his first victory this past weekend at the El Bosque Mexico Championship.  The 26-year old Indiana native shot a 4-under par 68 in the final round to earn him the championship.

“I don’t know how to put it in words,” said Atkins after the win. “This puts me in a really good spot. Just to be the champion feels awesome.

“I also want to thank Skechers Performance for the support they have given me over the last two seasons,” continued Atkins. “They make the most comfortable shoes and the best looking apparel in golf.”

Matt joined the Skechers GO GOLF elite team in 2016 and he continues to thrive on his journey to the PGA Tour. This past weekend, Atkins wore the Skechers GO GOLF Focus as well as Skechers Performance golf apparel as he swung his way to victory.

"Our golf business continues to achieve success, and this year has been outstanding for all of our athletes," said Skechers Performance Senior Vice President of Merchandising and Marketing, Rick Higgins. “Atkins has enormous potential and this is just the beginning of his highly promising career.”

This marks the third professional win by Skechers GO GOLF Elite Athletes in the last nine months. Russell Knox won the Traveler’s Championship in August and Wesley Bryan won the RBC Heritage two weeks ago in Hilton Head, South Carolina.
