The Schulthess Klinik in Zurich, Switzerland, has been focusing on the targeted combination of Medicine and Golf since 2007.

Since 2008 the Schulthess Klinik offers the "Golf Medical Center": the possibility to tap into the advice of a network of specialists, who facilitate members of the Golf Medical Center direct and easy access to medical and physiotherapeutic care. The Golf Medical Center also offers yearly information evenings with high profile experts exposing Golf and medical topics. (Example of November 2009: "Golf and the back").
Partner - Swiss Golf Pro Supporter Club
The Swiss Golf Pro Supporter Club (SGPSC) was formed end of the 1990s and developped from a little group of André's friends who had gotten together as the "Bossy Club" to what it is now. Today the SGPSC is an indispensable sponsor of young Swiss Touring pros and a valued pillar for many other Tour Players, including André.
The membership in the SGPSC goes beyond the finantial contribution as it offers a great networking pool for all Golfers. The fact that on top of that a lot of good is being done for the Touring Pros is not only appreciated by André. Do also join the SGPSC and become a part of the Swiss Golfing History.
Supplier - Conte of Florence
The italian fashion company Conte of Florence furnishes André with all clothes matters since 2008. The outfits suit André perfectly as they are manufactured with best materials, well cut and with a fashionable touch. In the Swiss retail Conte of Florence can be purchased in the middle price segment and the great clothes should be found in every Golfers wardrobe - on and off the golfcourse!
The partnership between André and Conte of Florence started in Florence itself, on occasion of the "Ponte Vecchio International Approach Championship", which the CEO and founder of Conte of Florence, Romano Boretti, has created. André is particularly pleased that he could walk away from that event as a Runner-Up once and the following year as a Winner.
Supplier - PING
The american Golf supplier PING already put its great choice of products to André's disposal when André was still in amateur shoes. The year 2009 marked the milestone for celebrations for both André and PING: Bossy has been a Touring Pro for 20 years and PING celebrates 50 years in business.
In PING André has always found a reliable and qualitative oustanding partner. In that André is not alone: top stars like Lee Westwood, Miguel Angel Jimenez, Angel Cabrera, Mark Calcavecchia and others bank on the ideal equipment. The same goes for the Ladies of course - see World Number Lorena Ochoa, Anna Nordqvist, I.K. Kim and many more.
In all those years, André has played around 7 generations of clubs. Right now he uses the PING S57 series of irons, the G10 fairway woods, the Rapture V2 hybrids, the G10 driver and the Redwood Anser putter. Find more details here.
In Switzerland PING is represented by a long term good friend from South Africa: Etienne Wehrli.
Supplier - Titleist
What would Golf be without a ball? André has since ever trusted the weight, surface and material of the white Titleist balls. No other industry has in the last decade known such leaps in innovation and development, literally making the sky the limit...
These days André plays the Pro V1x series by Titleist, per tournament week he goes through up to two boxes of balls.
Supplier - Adidas
Adidas was the first golf shoe manufacturer to fabricate taylor made golf shoes in the mid 1990s with the Bernhard Langer Collection. As the comfort of the shoes is of imminent importance for Golfers, André is glad to lead such a good relationship with the company from Herzogenaurach in Germany. His contact person at Adidas by the way is a well known voice - and face - to the german golf audience: the popular golf commentator Irek Myskow.
In recent years, André has also been tayloring special inlays into his golf shoes by the company Ortho-Team Dynamic AG in Zurich, Switzerland.
