SKINS is proud to support ambassador Rory McIlroy as he kicks off his 2012 season and campaign to claim the world number 1 title. The acclaimed golf professional, who is currently ranked number 3 in the world, had a fantastic year of accolades in 2011 including winning the US Open by a record margin.

It’s not just on tour that his talent has been evident, Rory recently showed off his golfing prowess during a round of golf at The Belfry. Captured on film before he played the renowned 10th hole on the Brabazon course, Rory shows some impressive skill and then takes aim at the iconic Belfry Bell.  Check out the video:

Rory has been wearing SKINS for the past two years and the compression sportswear brand has a range specially developed for the sport, the G400 range.  The garments are designed to ensure that all muscles work effectively in unison, when swinging a golf club, promoting a heightened sense of body movement and spatial awareness.  SKINS aren’t just for on the course either, the RY400 recovery range has been designed to help reduce recovery time, so you can get back out again sooner and be ready to take on the next 18 holes.

SKINS ambassador Rory McIlroy comments:

“There are other compression garments around, but I've found SKINS to be the best and most effective.  The G400 range is designed with the golfer in mind and helps me perfect my swing, as well as allowing me to train harder on-and-off course and for longer.  In fact I even sleep in the recovery range after a tough work-out, you feel a whole lot fresher in the morning.”
