FootJoy, the #1 Shoe & Glove in Golf, experienced yet another double win this weekend as fellow FJ brand ambassadors, Jason Dufner and Bernd Wiesberger showcased their talents under the utmost pressure to claim maiden victories on the PGA and European Tour respectively. Dufner emerged victorious from a sudden death play-off at the Zurich Classic of New Orleans; whilst Wiesberger cruised to a five-shot win at the European Tour’s Ballantine’s Championship in South Korea.
Relying on the Xtreme Platform Stability and cutting-edge performance of FJ’s new XPS-1 golf shoe, Dufner showed his steely determination throughout the final round, eventually securing a long-awaited maiden PGA Tour victory with an impressive birdie on the second playoff hole. The 35 year-old American was also wearing an FJ pique lisle polo-shirt from the all-new FJ Performance Apparel Collection as he collected the $1,152,000 winner’s cheque which vaults him to 9th in the 2012 FedExCup standings. Sunday also marked FJ loyalist Luke Donald’s return to #1 in the Official World Golf Rankings following an impressive 3rd position that saw him claw his way back from a disappointing one over-par opening round of 73.
Across the Pacific, in South Korea, wearing FootJoy’s flagship FJ ICON golf shoe, Bernd Wiesberger strode to an impressive five-shot maiden victory at The Ballantine’s Championship. Aided by the exceptional grip, comfort and feel of the FJ StaSof glove, the Austrian was on top of his game all week, playing the last 59 holes at the Blackstone Golf Club without dropping a single shot. Back-to-back course record rounds of 65 on Friday and Saturday were followed by a closing round of 68 as the 26 year-old surged clear of the chasing pack. The €367,500 first prize moves Wiesberger up to 13th in the season-long Race to Dubai Rankings. It was also an equally dominant weekend for FootJoy as impressive shoe count figures revealed 61% of the field at the Ballantine’s Championship trusted the excellence and performance the #1 shoe in golf.
Whether it is the all-round excellence of the FJ ICON, the Xtreme Platform Stability of the new
XPS-1, the reliability and consistent performance of DryJoys Tour and the athletic performance of the FJ Sport, FootJoy has all bases covered and remains the overwhelming favourite for golfers of all abilities around the world.
