FootJoy, the #1 Shoe & Glove in Golf, continued its imperious form on the European Tour and PGA Tour this week, as brand ambassador Marc Leishman recorded his maiden victory at the Travelers Championship at TPC River Highlands, in Connecticut – fighting off late challenges form fellow FJ loyalists, including Masters Champion Bubba Watson and Charley Hoffman who finished tied for 2nd. Elsewhere on the European Tour, the FJ Icon
enjoyed victory at the BMW International Open at Golf Club Gut Larchenhof, Germany.
Going into the final round at TPC River Highlands, the 28 year-old Australian trailed the leaders by six shots, but produced a stunning bogey free round which included 8 birdies. The overnight leaders couldn’t contend as Leishman was in the clubhouse with a four-round total of 14-under 266. Sporting the unrivalled comfort and performance of his FJ Icon
golf shoes and relying on the outstanding comfort and grip of the FootJoy StaSof Glove
, Leishman climbed 58 places in the FedExCup standings to 23rd, having received a winner’s cheque for $1,080,000.
In Germany, on the European Tour, the winner also trusted the all-round excellence of FJ Icon
golf shoes, which proved their importance in the grueling four hole playoff in Germany. The 2012 BMW Invitational Open Champion was in good company as 56% of the field trusted the excellence of FJ Shoes
, with the nearest competitor only accounting for 19%.
“It is extremely pleasing to record another double win weekend and continue our dominance with usage counts on tour. It is always great to see maiden victories and we hope the guys now use this as a springboard to push on to more success,” commented Russell Lawes, European Marketing Manager – FootJoy.
Whether it is the all-round excellence of the FJ Icon
, the Xtreme Platform Stability of the all-new FJ XPS-1 Shoes
, the reliability and consistent performance of FJ DryJoys Tour Shoes
or the sports performance of the FJ Sport Shoes
, FootJoy remains the overwhelming favourite for golfers of all abilities around the world.
