FootJoy Pro Ricardo Santos Records Maiden Victory On Tour!

17/05/2012  
FootJoy, the #1 Shoe & Glove in Golf, enjoyed yet another win this weekend as FJ brand ambassador, Ricardo Santos fired a stunning nine under par 63 on home soil in the final round of the Madeira Islands Open to claim his maiden European Tour title. Santos rewrote the history books by becoming the first Portuguese player to win a European Tour event in his home country, moving from 105th to 50th in The Race to Dubai standings with the €112,500 earned from this victory.

Relying on the Xtreme Platform Stability and cutting-edge performance of FootJoy’s XPS-1™ golf shoe, the 29 year old delighted the home crowds by powering passed the overnight leader, finishing four shots clear on 22 under par – a record low total for the event. The 2011 Challenge Tour graduate trusted the unrivalled performance, feel and grip of the FJ StaSof glove to produce a flawless performance in the final round holing an exceptional putt on the 17th to all but guarantee victory finishing with another birdie at the last.

This is the second victory in three weeks for XPS-1, following on from Jason Dufner’s playoff victory at the Zurich Classic on the PGA Tour at the end of April. The XPS-1 shoe is really making its mark on both tours this year, showcasing the unrivalled stability and performance at the highest level. An impressive 66.7% of the field (104) put their trust in FootJoy shoes compared to 11.5% (18) from the nearest competitor. FootJoy also topped the glove counts with 46.8% of the field trusting the exceptional grip and performance of the #1 Glove 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.
