FootJoy, the #1 Shoe and Glove in Golf, enjoyed yet another triple win weekend as its brand ambassadors combined to secure significant victories on three different Continents. Charismatic Swede, Henrik Stenson ended a five year wait for a European Tour title by capturing the prestigious South African Open Championship at the Serengeti Golf & Wildlife Estate. In Japan fellow brand ambassador, Luke Donald, moved back to World #2 following an impressive victory at the Dunlop Phoenix Open. Adam Scott completed the memorable weekend for the market-leading brand, claiming the Australian Masters at the iconic Kingston Heath Golf Club.
Looking to secure his place in the coveted end-of-season DP World Tour Championship in Dubai, Stenson made the long trip to South Africa from his home in the United States knowing he needed a good performance to remain in the Top 60. That added pressure and a spirited final-round charge from fellow FJ loyalist, George Coetzee who was looking to capture his national title certainly appeared to draw the best out of the former Ryder Cup star. Relying on the renowned comfort, fit and classic styling of the FJ ICON, and the ultimate feel of Pure Touch gloves, Stenson produced some clutch birdies over the closing stretch, eventually finishing on 17 under par for a three shot victory.
Wearing his traditional FJ ICON golf shoes, Luke Donald was in imperious form all week in Japan as he stamped his authority on the field at the Dunlop Phoenix Open. A closing round of 68 ensured he finished the week on 16 under par to record his first win since the BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth. This victory also moved the Englishman back up to #2 in the Official World Golf Rankings.
Down under in Melbourne, Adam Scott produced a stunning final-round display of shot making and laser-like putting to capture his first Australian Masters golden jacket. Trusting the athletic performance and superior comfort of the FJ Sport golf shoe and the unrivalled grip and comfort of the StaSof glove, the world #5 began the final round with intent, reeling off five birdies on the front nine, eventually shooting a 5 under par round of 67 for a four-shot victory over the chasing pack.
Whether it is the all-round excellence of FJ ICON, the Xtreme Platform Stability of the XPS-1, the reliability and consistent performance of DryJoys Tour, the sports performance of the FJ Sport or the multi-functional, lifestyle-infused Contour Casual, FootJoy remains the overwhelming favourite for golfers of all abilities around the world.
