Swing It Like Spilkova
Bogner Testimonial athlete and pro-golfer Klara Spilkova on the new collection and her bid for the 2016 Olympic Games.
"Golf gives me strength..."
While a few clouds did hang over the Munich sky for the latest Bogner Sport golfwear collection shoot, the positively radiant energy of 21 year-old pro-golfer Klara Spilkova more than compensated for the lack of sunshine. A Bogner Testimonial Athlete for the last two years, Spilkova was a clear choice to model the new collection.
Spilkova says her success is due in large part to her positive attitude. When she takes the green, she performs best when she controls her breathing and thinks happy thoughts. Throughout the photo-shoot as well, Klara’s ear-to-ear smile and contagious laughter brought up the mood of the whole team for a very successful day.
“I love being a Bogner Testimonial”, says Spilkova in an on-set interview with the Bogner team. “It’s something very special. I love the Bogner family, I love the people around.” When it comes to what Klara wears on the golf course, she expresses her love for colorful pieces with beautiful prints and patterns, but stresses the importance of functionality and range of motion.
Spilkova’s bid to play in the Summer Olympics in Rio this year is secure in all but name, and she’ll be wearing Bogner while she represents her native Czech Republic. Regarding the new collection, Klara seems very excited: “It’s very ‘fashion’, it’s very comfy, and I just look different on the golf course. It’s very colorful, with a lot of flowers, which I like.”
