Mark Wilson (FJ ICON #52308, SciFlex glove) went bogey-free over the final 36 holes Sunday en route to capturing the Sony Open by two shots over fellow FJ players Tim Clark (DryJoys Tour style #53767) and Steve Marino (FJ Sport style #53102, SciFlex). Wilson shot a 5-under 65 in the morning to take a one-shot lead into the afternoon round. Despite only six minutes between rounds, he closed with a 3-under 67 for his third career victory.The win came with some anxious moments, courtesy of Marino and Clark. Marino was 13 under and needed an eagle on 18, which looked improbable when his drive splashed out of the bunker and onto the side of a hill.With his feet in the sand, and the ball about chest-high on the hill, Marino lashed at it with a fairway metal and watched it hook onto the front of the green and stop 40 feet away."I saw the ball, and I thought, 'OK, eagle is going to be pretty tough for him to make.' It was one incredible shot," Wilson said.Marino's eagle putt narrowly missed, and Wilson pitched to 4 feet and made a birdie he didn't need. He finished at 16-under 264.The big move of the day came from Clark, and he was on the other side of the course.Because of the 36-hole final -- forced by a washout in the first round Thursday -- players did not change groups for the afternoon. Clark started the day six shots out of the lead, shot 66 in the morning and made his move on the front nine -- his last nine holes. His birdie on No. 6 took him to 12 under, then he nearly made an ace on the par-3 seventh for a tap-in birdie and gave himself two good looks at the end.With this win, Wilson earns his second trip to Augusta for the Masters. His first came in 2001 as a spectator. Wilson won the Honda Classic in 2007, but a month later Augusta National changed its criteria to invite most PGA TOUR winners. He won in Mexico two years later, but that doesn't count toward the Masters because it is an opposite-field tournament.Wilson finally returns to Augusta as a player, and he can only hope his celebration ends by April."From what I've learned over the years is the more you succeed out here, the more people expect of you," Wilson said. "But I'm going to enjoy this like crazy."
D.A. Points came back from a nearly three hour rain delay to win the Shell Houston Open by one stroke over Henrik Stenson and Billy Horschel.
Beginning the day one back, Points made six birdies in the first 14 holes, racing to a one stroke lead before play ceased. With a two year PGA Tour exemption and a Masters invitation on the line, D.A. made clutch pars on the final four holes including up and downs on the final two to post the clubhouse lead at 16 under. No one could catch the total, which gave D.A. his second PGA tour victory.
Points trusted his XPS-1 golf shoes and FJ Sciflex glove en route to his win, "The XPS-1 gives me the comfort and stability I need to play my best golf." Continuing, "The SciFlex fits my hand and is breathable for the hot conditions we always play in."
Seven different FJ styles graced the top 25 of the Shell Houston Open. D.A. opted for max stability of the XPS-1, second place finisher Billy Horschel went for fashion forward performance in FJ Icon MyJoys. Other players in the top 25, Ben Crane in Contour, Oothuizen in DryJoys Tour, Bill Haas in FJ Sport, Westwood in FJ Icon, and Wheatcroft in the M:Project. FJ truly has a shoe for every golfer and every swing.

Former University of Georgia product, Brendon Todd cruised to a two shot victory at the HP Byron Nelson Championship. Todd's final round was blemish free, not making a single bogey to four birdies for a four-under par round of 66.
Beginning his day in a tie for the lead, Todd made birdies at 2, 5, 9 and 10 to race to 14-under par on the week. Todd made several crafty par saves on his way to the clubhouse including a left handed, back of the wedge shot on the par-3 13th that set up perhaps the best up and down of the week. None of his chasers could catch him giving Todd his first PGA Tour win in 77 starts.
Todd relied on DryJoys Tour golf shoes and the Pure Touch Limited golf glove throughout his winning performance.
The win gives Todd a two year exemption on the PGA Tour as well as an invite to the 2015 Masters.
