FootJoy players are a perfect four-for-four to start the season as Ben Crane (DryJoys style #53711, SciFlex glove) rode a red-hot putter to win the Farmers Insurance Open at Torrey Pines. Crane made two birdie putts over 45 feet then tapped in a 30-inch putt for par on the 18th hole for a 2-under 70 and a one-shot victory over fellow FJ players Michael Sim (FJ ICON style #52070, SciFlex glove) and Marc Leishman (FJ ICON style #52070). It was Crane’s third career victory, and first in nearly five years, and this one earned him a trip back to the Masters.Starting the final round two shots behind, Crane opened with three birdies in five holes, including one from just over 45 feet on No. 3. He expanded his lead to three shots with another 45-foot birdie putt on the 11th.Sim, the 25-year-old Australian who earned his Tour card following three victories last year on the Nationwide Tour, kept with Crane the entire round and had his chances to the very end. After missing his birdie chance on 18, Crane tapped in his par for the win and a 13-under 275 total that earns him a trip back to Augusta National for the first time in three years.

We had a chance to catch up with Ben Crane this week, following his dramatic win last week at the Farmers Insurance Open at Torrey Pines. As you'll hear, Ben has a new outlook on the game this year and it has apparently already paid off with his third career PGA TOUR victory! Ben also talks about not knowing if he had won or not on the 18th green, his offseason work, why he prefers DryJoys, a return trip to the Masters and more.
