Welshman, Jamie Donaldson made eight birdies on over his final 18 holes to win the Irish Open by four over fellow FJ staffer's Rafa Cabrera Bello and Anthony Wall.
Donaldson shot three consecutive rounds in the 60's to take the 54 hole lead into Sunday. Donaldson, in FJ ICON and StaSof, had a calm focus throughout his final round round stating, "I didn't really look at any leaderboards on the way around, I didn't really know what was going on.”
It worked brilliantly as both times he dropped a shot with bogey he immediately birdied the next hole to not lose any momentum. He ended up carding a six under par 66 to win the highly coveted Irish Open.
Final round playing partner Anthony Wall spoke highly of Donaldson's game, "I've never doubted him. He's a class act and a super, super player, and he
deserves everything he gets because he does work hard and he's got
loads of talent."
This is the 36 year old's first win on the European Tour in 255 starts.

On the PGA Tour, Ted Potter Jr. won the Greenbrier Classic in a three hole playoff over fellow FJ staffer Troy Kelly (DryJoys Tour). Potter, three off the lead with two holes to play, eagled the 600 plus yard par five seventeenth to get within one of the leader. The PGA Tour rookie, in FJ Icon, added another birdie on the par three finishing hole to take the clubhouse lead at 16 under par. Opting to watch the action unfold instead of staying loose on the range, Potter watched Kelly par his final two holes to tie him in the clubhouse.
With the playoff set, they headed to the par three 18th where both players exchanged pars. Moving to the seventeenth, Potter narrowly missed a short birdie putt that would of sealed the deal on Kelly's chances, but Potter calmly tapped in his par and they headed to the par three last for the third time today. This time Potter stuck one into a few feet and made the birdie putt for the win. This is Ted Potter Jr's first PGA Tour win.

Now, moving to Paris for the European Tour's Alstom Open De France, where Marcel Siem put together a final round five under par 67 to outlast the field by one. Siem, in FJ Icon MyJoys and StaSof, started his day with a drive into a hazard but the German showed some grit, fighting back to save his par despite the errant opening shot. Marcel added five birdies and a single bogey to close out the field and win the Championship.
This is Siem's first victory since the 2004 Dunhill Championship, stating post round, "It means so much to me to win after that long stretch. It's all about
winning in the end and it puts so much pressure every time you don't win
and people start talking, you will never win again and stuff like that,
so it's very important for me."
On the LPGA Tour, Na Yeon Choi battled the long and tough Blackwolf Run U.S. Women's Open venue to win by four shots over fellow FJ player Amy Yang. Choi, in Women's DryJoys, was around the top of the leaderboard all week but a third round 65, the fifth lowest round in U.S. Women's Open history, catapulted her to the top field by six strokes. Shooting even par on the front nine, Choi tripled the tenth hole to give the other players an outside chance of catching her. She bounced back with birdies at 11, 15, and 16 to promptly slam the door on her competition and win the championship.
This is Choi's first major triumph and the win will moves her to second on the Rolex Women's World Golf Rankings.
Scott Piercy won the Canadian Open with a final round 67 to edge fellow FJ Ambassador Robert Garrigus by one. Piercy began the week with an eight under par 62 to take the early clubhouse lead; but with much work still left to do, he added a pair of 67's over the next two days to remain in contention.
Now on the final day, two strokes behind 54 hole leader Garrigus, Piercy (FJ ICON and StaSof) rattled off four birdies through the first five holes to leap into contention. Piercy cooled towards the middle of his round before adding a chip in birdie at the 15 hole to reach 17 under par. Parring in, Piercy had to wait and watch his competitors try to match his 17 under total.
No player could catch the total, making Piercy the 2012 RBC Canadian Open Champion. This is Piercy's second career win and the victory moves him to 13th on the FedEx Cup leaderboard.

Welshman Jamie Donaldson carded a final round 68 to take home the Abu Dhabi Golf Championship by a single stroke. Donaldson, in FJ ICON and StaSof, posted a smooth 34 on the front nine that included two bookend birdies and seven pars. His unflappable play continued for the first eight holes on the backside until a three putt bogey on the last gave his chasers some hope. They failed to capitalize on their opportunity, giving Donaldson the win.
“It’s pretty surreal really, I’ve played really good all week although I’ve got away with murder up the last" Donaldson stated post round. Continuing "I played the pro-am on Wednesday and thought the course was too difficult and I had no chance,I thought if I could get a decent finish I would be chuffed...To be holding this trophy is just mad."
This is Donaldson's second European Tour victory, his first coming in the Irish Open at Royal Portrush the previous year. The win also moves Donaldson inside the top 30 in the Official World Golf Rankings.
Los Angeles native, John Merrick won the Northern Trust Open at Historic Riviera Country Club with a par on the second sudden death playoff hole.
Merrick (FJ ICON and StaSof) shot three consecutive rounds under par to sit three strokes behind the 54 hole leader and defending champion, Bill Haas. With Haas struggling over the final 18, the UCLA product, Merrick capitalized making birdies on the tenth and eleventh holes to reach twelve under par. A late bogey let Merrick's competitors back into the tournament before parring in to post eleven under par. At the end of regulation, only one could match his score.
Moving to the 18th hole, both players managed to escape with pars on the first playoff hole. Moving to the famous drivable par four tenth hole, Merrick conservatively laid back to 90 yards leaving a full lob wedge into the green. Merrick played the wedge to 15 feet of the pin and calmly two putted for the win.
When asked what this win meant to Merrick, he was nearly speechless,"I can't put this into words. Growing up as a kid, coming out here, I just wanted to play this tournament."
This is Merrick's first win on the PGA Tour, also earning the 30 year old a spot in this year's Masters Tournament.

Michael Thompson survived the brutal weekend conditions at PGA National to claim the Honda Classic by two strokes over former U.S. Open Champion, Geoff Ogilvy.
Already eight under at the halfway point of the tournament, Thompson looked to be the man to beat over the weekend. Playing at the top of the leaderboard, Thompson carded 4 bogeys and 4 birdies en route to his Saturday even par, 70 tally. The eight under total was good enough to earn Thompson a share of the 54 hole lead with fellow FJ staffer Luke Guthrie.
Playing in the final group for the second straight day, Thompson struck early with an eagle at the par 5 third hole to reach ten under par. Thompson dropped a shot at the next, but answered with a birdie on the following hole.

Continuing his conservative play, Thompson made six straight pars before three putting for bogey at 16 -- a hole Oglivy birdied to get within two of Thompson. Ogilvy birdied 17, as well, to get within one of the Alabama grad, Thompson.

Coming off major heartbreak at last year's Open Championship, Adam Scott knows what major pressure feels like on Sunday of a major championship. With that experience in his rear view, Adam Scott put on a performance for the ages winning the 2013 Masters in a playoff over Angel Cabrera. Adam Scott began the day one stroke behind the leaders, at six under par. Opening his final round with a bogey, Adam quickly gained the stroke back with a long left-to-right birdie putt at the third to climb into contention. Parring out on the front, left Scott three strokes behind then leader Cabrera. With ground to make up, Adam narrowly missed the hazard on the heavily protected par five 13th green. A chip and a short putt gave Adam birdie, closing the gap on the leaders. Scott struck again hitting the par five 15th green in two shots and two putting for a birdie, which put him putting in a tie for first place. After just missing birdie bids on 16 and 17, Scott had a downhill 20 foot birdie putt on the 72nd hole of regulation. After much deliberation with his caddy, Scott stood over the putt and brushed it in the low side of the hole, exploding in emotion as it rattled around the bottom of the cup to reach nine under par. Not to be outdone, grizzly veteran and two-time major champion, Angel Cabrera knew a birdie was needed to have any hope of another green jacket. Splitting the fairway, Cabrera then stuck his approach shot to a mere putters' length. Cabrera converted the birdie bid forcing the playoff with Scott. On the first hole of the sudden death playoff, both players launched drives right up the center of the narrow, punishing fairway. Hitting their approach shots, both players hit the green only to spin off one of the steep Augusta National false front's. Cabrera was outside of Scott and missed his birdie chip by inches. Splitting pars, Scott and Cabrera headed to the 10th where Bubba's famous hooked gap wedge occurred the previous year. Hitting the ski sloped fairway in regulation, both players hit brilliant shots into the green leaving makeable birdie putts for the win. Cabrera putted first, facing a slippery right-to-left slider, and missed ever so slightly on the high side giving Adam a putt for the win. Taking his time to find the perfect read Scott stood over his putt drained it to become a Master's Champion.
This is Adam's first Major Championship and first Master's Championship for an Australian born player.
"All of the power is coming from the ground and my connection to the ground is through my shoe, so I believe I need to be in control and connected to the ground throughout my golf swing and I believe the FJ Sport can do that for me." said Adam Scott on why he chooses FJ Sport. Continuing, "All the feel in this game comes through your hands and I choose StaSof because it gives me the feel I am looking for in a golf glove."

Brett Rumford cruised to his second consecutive victory at the Volvo China Open. Rumford's three under par 33, on the front nine, increased his one stroke overnight lead to three. Competitors drew closer over the back nine, until Rumford posted birdies at 12, 13, and 14 to increase his lead to six. Rumford went on to post a four day total of 16 under par to win by four strokes over the competition.
The 35 year old, five time European Tour winner stated post round, "As with last week I’m kind of speechless at the moment." Continuing, “It’s quite surreal – it’s the first time I’ve actually played the week after a win so I’m more than pleased. It’s hard to get my head around it at the moment."
Rumford was cool and comfortable all week in head-to-toe FJ Performance Golf Apparel, FJ ICON, and SciFlex. Brett also became the 31st player to win consecutive titles on The European Tour.

On the Asian Tour, fellow FJ Staffer and FJ Performance Apparel Ambassador Bernd Wiesberger locked down a one stroke victory at the CIMB Niaga Indonesian Masters. Bernd shot a front nine 34 to climb the to top of the leaderboard.
The Austrian added an eagle at the 12th and a birdie at the 16th to post a four day total of 273 or 15 under par across the nearly 7,400 yard Royale Jakarta Golf Club, the total left him one stroke clear of the competition. This is Bernd's first victory of the 2013 season and sixth international victory overall.
Bernd also wore FJ ICON and StaSof en route to his victory.
Winning is never easy on a professional tour, which Wiesberger understood stating post round, "I was struggling in the beginning after my birdie on one. But at the turn I got a bit of momentum going because I was confident with my ball striking.”
Mikko Ilonen cruised to a three shot victory at the Nordea Masters, winning his first European Tour title for six years at Bro Hof Slott.
The 33 year old, whose two previous victories came in 2007, the latter in this event, started the day two clear and an imposing display meant the gap was not closed, despite a hugely impressive 12 under weekend total from FJ Apparel Ambassador Bernd Wiesberger (FJ Sport & StaSof)
After turning in 34, Ilonen (FJ ICON & StaSof) then birdied the 11th from 12 feet, before his only set-back with a three-putt bogey at the long 12th. A sublime chip to three feet at the next quickly atoned for that error, and there were no dramas over the closing stretch.
A three under par 69 ensured a 21 under total and three shot victory margin for the Finn.
“It’s pretty special. I could feel a lot of support from Finland, especially today," said Ilonen,
Asked about his bogey at the 12th, he added: “I just got ahead of myself with the first putt. I’ve said for weeks now it doesn’t really bother me if I make a bogey because I know I can make it up and it was the first time I went for the 13th in two.”
Ilonen had been a runner-up in Morocco before finishing second to Brett Rumford in China already this season, and was pleased with the way he dealt with those disappointments.
“To bounce back this soon is really good,” he continued. “It’s really satisfying, but the show I saw in China - I didn’t lose the tournament, Brett won it, so hats off to him."
“Obviously I’ve been waiting for this moment for a few weeks now. People have been expecting me to win but most of all I’ve been expecting myself to win, so to pull it off here after those second places is very satisfying."

In 2011, Dufner was in the driver seat late Sunday at the PGA Championship. His lead was so large, he nearly grasped the Wanamaker at Atlanta Athletic Club. But, a rocky finish placed Dufner in a playoff, which he eventually lost. That playoff loss seemed to have fueled Dufner throughout the 2012 Season, accumulating two wins and laying down a stellar Ryder Cup performance; however, the major that he let slip away in 2011 still alluded him.
Two years removed from a major heartbreak, Dufner was poised again to take home the PGA Championship at Oak Hill Country Club in Rochester, NY. Beginning the day one stroke off the 54 hole lead, thanks to a second round course record setting 63, Dufner came out on Sunday striping down the narrow tree lined corridors Oak Hill calls fairways and knocking down flags on the small historic greens.
Consecutive birdies on four and five from kick-in range gave Dufner the outright lead. In typical Dufner-fashion, sauntering around the course showing little emotion, Dufner made the turn in 32 strokes. He was, again, in control late at the PGA Championship. Continuing to play smart, solid golf, Dufner made another birdie from tap-in range at the par four 16th hole to keep his lead at two strokes. Dufner kept his lead at two over the final two holes to close out the PGA Championship as a major winner.
"I decided I was going to be confident and put my best foot forward and play aggressive and try to win this thing," Dufner said in his usual casual manner. "I wasn't going to play scared or soft. It's a big step for my career."
This is the third win of Jason's career and first of the 2013 season.

Henrik Stenson won the Deutsche Bank Championship with a final round 66 to tie the tournament record at 22 under par, two clear of his closest pursuant Steve Stricker.

Henrik Stenson rode his hot streak straight through East Lake Golf Club in Atlanta, GA, capturing both the Fedex Cup and Tour Championship titles. A few weeks prior, Stenson won the second event of the Fedex Cup playoffs outside of Boston placing him in control of his own destiny to capture the 10 million dollar Fedex Cup bonus.
Henrik opened the tournament with a near flawless 64 to take the top spot on the leaderboard, continuing on Friday with a four under par 66. The following day, Stenson looked poised to run away with the event by shooting a front nine 31 for the second consecutive day before a few back nine bogeys brought him back down from his lofty score. Despite the late bogeys, Stenson still took a multiple shot lead into the final 18 on Sunday.
Needing only to maintain his lead, Stenson rattled off 7 straight pars to begin his round on Sunday. He added a birdie at the eighth and par at the ninth to accomplish his goals of being mistake-free and staying at the top of the leaderboard. Stenson added two birdies and one bogey on the back nine to finish his day at two under par and 13 under par for the week, good enough for a three stroke victory over fellow FJ Staffers, Steve Stricker and Jordan Spieth.
"It's been an incredible run," said Stenson of his play, "To win both these trophies today feels unbelievable."
Stenson's comeback has now come full circle, the big swinging Swede had previously dropped all the way to 230th in the Official World Golf Rankings and now sits comfortably inside the top ten on the standings. He acknowledged his struggles by stating that, "one should never give up and just keep trying harder."
Stenson is the first European player to win the Fedex Cup

Jimmy Walker took home the Frys.com Open with a final round 66 that left him two clear of the field.
Entering the day in a tie for fourth, thanks to a third round 9-under par 62, Walker needed a solid Sunday performance to have any shot at the title. Walker came out of the gate making two birdies on the first four holes before turning in three under par 32. On the back nine Walker added two more birdies to race to the top and take home the title.
The 54-hole leader, 23 year old Challenge Tour player Brooks Koepka had a fresh outlook on not protecting his the lead, "I just didn't make the shots I needed to win. Congrats to Jimmy on that. He played very well. But just try to learn from the whole experience. Any time you can put yourself in that kind of pressure, it's always good. It you take something from it, that's even better."
The win comes In his eighth season and his 188th tournament. It also earns Walker a spot in the 2014 Masters Tournament, "I felt like I was good enough to be in them, play in them," Walker said. "There's always this big pressure to get into Augusta, and I would press here, press there. You want to be playing in the big stuff. That's what I'm aspiring to do -- play against the world's best."
Webb SImpson ran away to a six stroke win at the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open. Through the first three rounds, Webb stood at a staggering 19 under par, 4 strokes clear of his closest pursuant and fellow FJ Staffer, Chesson Hadley.
Simpson showed little remorse at the start of the final round, birdieing two of the first three holes to increase his lead. Turning in 32 strokes, Simpson had the tournament well in hand. On the back nine, Simpson added three more birdies and a lone bogey to take home the title in an absolute masterful performance.
"As we were going kind of middle of the round, pins were tough, greens were drying out and I knew it would take a really special round for somebody to shoot 7, 8 under," Simpson said. "So, I felt like I was in control, and I asked my caddie, once I hit it on the green on 17 where we stood. And I was just thankful that I was able to kind of manage my golf ball the last couple rounds."
Webb relied on the FJ ICON golf shoe and Pure Touch Limited glove during his dominating performance.

On the European Tour, Fedex Cup Champion and arguably the hottest player on the planet right now, Henrik Stenson blew away the field in the World Tour Championship in Dubai. Shooting a final-round 8-under 64, that included a tap in eagle at the final hole, giving the big Swede a six stroke victory.
Stenson has now become the first player to win the Race to Dubai and the Fedex Cup in the same season.
"I have managed to do something very, very special here this week by winning both in America and the Race to Dubai," adding, "It has been an incredible Summer for me, the Autumn in America was great, and now this...It has been a dream season," said Stenson following his win.
Stenson opted for FJ ICON and Pure Touch Limited throughout his successful season on both the PGA and European Tours.
On the Australasian Tour, Masters Champion and world number two, Adam Scott continued his winning ways by winning for the second consecutive week at the Australian Masters. Last year Scott won this tournament and claimed it gave him the confidence he needed to win the green jacket a few months later.
This year on a difficult wind-swept Royal Melbourne golf course Adam Scott shot rounds of 67-66-66-71, to place him at 14-under par two clear of his closest pursuant.
“I think it’s very hard to win two tournaments full stop, let alone back to back, so I’m quite pleased with myself this week," Adam stated post round. “Sometimes you win a little bit ugly. All the good stuff I had done in the first three rounds counted for a lot, even though it wasn’t the prettiest golf today."
Adam Scott has been testing a new prototype FJ shoe and his trusted StaSof glove during his two wins in Australia.
Just a few short weeks ago, Jimmy Walker opened the 2014 Fedex Cup season with a victory at the Frys.com Open. This week at Waialae Country Club, he added a second victory in the new wraparound PGA Tour season with a win at the Sony Open.
Needing a big round to have any shot at the title, Walker fired a flawless, bogey free round of 63 to stay one shot clear of his playing competitors. His round included five back nine birdies that proved insurmountable to his chasers.
Walker relied on FJ Icon and StaSof en route to the win.
The win moves Walker to the top of the Fedex Cup leaderboard.

Jimmy Walker held off his pursuants to take home the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am this weekend on a cold, wet, and windy day on the Monterey Peninsula.
Carrying a six stroke lead into the final round, Walker made it his tournament to win. He proceeded to card a front nine one-under par 35 to keep the big lead. On the back, Walker dropped a few shots but still got the job done by holing a par putt on the famous 18th at Pebble securing tory.
Walker relied on FJ Icon and StaSof during all four days of the inclement weather-plagued tournament.
This is Walker's third victory of the still infantile 2014 PGA Season. The win also increases his lead in the season long 2014 Fedex Cup points race.

John Senden took home the Valspar Championship with a final round one under par 70 to win by one stroke over fellow FJ Staffer, Kevin Na. Senden shot up the leaderboard thanks to a third round 64 that left him two shy of the 54 hole lead. Senden's Sunday chase began with a birdie on the opening hole. Conditions, then, toughened as the winds picked up making scoring even more difficult across the brutal Copperhead course. But out in one under par 34, Senden had a chance to take home the title. To heighten his chances at victory, he birdied two of the three difficult holes that make up the course's "Snake Pit". Adding a long two putt for par at the last gave Senden the lead in the clubhouse that sustained despite the players still on the course.
No player could match the seven under par total giving John Senden his first PGA Tour Victory since 2006. "If I could just stay in the moment, I knew I was swinging well enough to give it a shake," Senden said of his chances to win. The Australian relied on FJ Icon golf shoes and the Pure Touch Limited glove en route to victory.

Matt Jones began Sunday's dreary final round in the Shell Houston Open six shots back of the leader and needed nothing short of a heroic round to have any shot at the title. Opening his final round with a bogey, the 33 year old Australian, Jones made four birdies on his front nine making the turn in three under par 33.
Still chasing the lead the entire back nine Jones birdies three of the first seven holes on the back nine to get within one of the lead. Jones made an untimely bogey at the 17th that would seem to seal his fate. Jones would not let the bogey become his undoing and proceeded to roll in a forty foot plus birdie putt on the 72nd hole of regulation to get within one of the leader back on the tee.
As luck would have it, a bogey from the leader led to a playoff. The players headed back to the 18th tee.
Jones' approach into the first playoff hole came up well short of the green leaving himself a 42 yard pitch shot to the hole. Stepping into the shot, Jones hit a low runner that tracked right at the hole and fell to the bottom of the cup for birdie. Jones' playing competitor couldn't match the birdie giving Jones the victory!
"I walked up there and told my caddy I was going to chip it in," Jones said. " You don't know if it's going to lip out, low or high, but when I saw it disappear it's probably the happiest I've been on the golf course."
The win earns Jones the last invitation to next week's Masters Tournament.
Jones relied on FJ Icon and SciFlex during Sunday's rainy final round.
