FootJoy, the #1 Shoe & Glove in Golf, secured yet another prestigious victory at this week’s 30th Anniversary of the PGA Grand Slam of Golf in Bermuda as FJ brand ambassador; Padraig Harrington claimed the coveted title by one shot over fellow FJ loyalist and US Open Champion, Webb Simpson.

The three-time Major Champion was in imperious form in the second round, shooting a 4 under par round of 67 to claim his biggest cheque since finishing tied second in the 2009 WGC Bridgestone Invitational. The 41-year-old Irishman, winner of 26 tournaments worldwide, produced immaculate golf from tee to green on the Port Royal Golf Course in the Xtreme platform stability of the XPS-1 golf shoe and the unrivalled comfort and performance of the FJ PureTouch glove.

One shot off the pace at the close of play on Tuesday evening; Webb Simpson trusted the all-round excellence of FootJoy’s flagship shoe, FJ ICON and the superior grip of the FJ PureTouch to shoot a final round of 65, the best round of the two day competition. Bubba Watson, another FJ brand ambassador and current US Masters Champion also fought hard playing some magnificent golf to finish 3 under par. Bubba put his trust in the ultimate comfort of FJ ICON and the brand new FJ GTxtreme glove.

“It was great to have three of our ambassadors at the Grand Slam of Golf competing in FootJoy shoes and gloves after what has been a stellar season around the globe for our stable of brand ambassadors,” commented Russell Lawes, European Marketing Manager – FootJoy. “It was also very pleasing to see Padraig back to his mercurial best and I am sure this victory will provide him with a massive boost as the tour heads out to the Far East in the coming weeks.”

Whether it is the all-round excellence of the 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 hybrid, FootJoy remains the overwhelming favourite for golfers of all abilities around the world.
