Just a quick scan through the field yesterday revealed even more players wearing the new FJ ICON as well as SYNR-G and several other popular FootJoy styles. In fact, 53% of the field at the final major championship of 2009 are wearing FootJoy golf shoes, more than double the nearest competitor. Click on the images below to see some of the FJ players in action on Thursday.
"Glory's Last Shot" begins this morning when the 2009 PGA Championship tees off at Hazeltine. We've had two memorable playoffs (Masters, British Open) and a wild Monday finish (U.S. Open) in the majors this year so it's safe to say we can expect some excitement this week when the world's best tee off on the longest course in major championship history (7,674 yards). Length is the hot topic of the week but here's what else people are talking about this week...
Enjoy the PGA Championship!
