Zach Johnson emerged victorious from a three man FJ playoff in the 144th playing of the Open Championship!
Needing a birdie on the final hole of regulation to take the clubhouse lead at 15-under par, Johnson sank 20 plus foot putt and watched as his playing competitors tried to catch him. Louis Oosthuizen and Marc Leishman were able to do so and the three golfers headed to a four hole aggregate playoff to determine the champion.
On the first hole, Oosthuizen and Johnson carded birdies. Johnson poured in a second birdie putt on the following hole to take the lead over Oosthuizen and Leishman. On the treacherous road hole each player made bogey. Now on the 18th tee with a one stroke lead, Johnson hit the wide 18th fairway and pitched his ball safely beyond the pin. Johnson's birdie putt slid by the hole and he tapped in for par. Oosthuizen had a chance to tie, but his putt slid by giving Johnson the victory.
Each player in the playoff relied on a model from our DryJoys Lineup. Zach led the way in DryJoys Tour MyJoys, Louis in DryJoys Casual and Marc in D.N.A. Each player also relied on FJ golf gloves during their Open perfornance, Johnson and Lieshman in StaSof and Oosthizen in SciFlex Tour.
This is Johnson's second major victory.

Next Generation Spikeless Golf Shoe Performance
(Fairhaven, MA) - FootJoy, the #1 Shoe in Golf, introduces the all-new DryJoys Casual performance spikeless golf shoe. DryJoys Casual is a natural extension of the storied DryJoys® footwear line, designed for the player who values an on-and-off course shoe yet still demands Tour-level comfort, support, and stability in golf footwear.
A new proprietary polymer outsole material called Fine Tuned Foam™ (FTF) was developed for the DryJoys Casual outsole unit. FTF is 10% lighter than conventional EVA Foams providing enhanced cushioning and shock absorption for added comfort. DryJoys Casual’s innovative design features two distinct layers of varying densities of FTF, each with specific characteristics. These FTF layers are fused together to deliver comfort and create the most performance-driven spikeless outsole from FootJoy. The top layer of FTF is softer to provide the golfer with all day comfort. The lower/outer portion of FTF if firmer and gives the player perimeter stability around the foot for maximum support. Finally, TPU skeletal traction strips are embedded within the FTF outsole material to provide the golfer with enhanced traction and lateral stability during the golf swing.

“Years of research have gone into the development of the FTF material,”says Mike Foley, Director of Product Management, FJ Footwear. “The result is a category of shoes that are luxuriously soft and comfortable but perform like nimble, high-end athletic footwear. It was this combination of comfort and performance that attracted Hunter Mahan who was the first player to wear DryJoys Casual shoes on Tour, unveiling an early prototype at the Open Championship.”
DryJoys Casual shoes feature Extreme Comfort Leather™(ECL), developed in conjunction with Pittards®of England. This super-soft premium leather contains a proprietary membrane-free waterproofing system and is 30% softer than previous generations of FJ performance leather.
DryJoys Casual will be initially available in three different color options. - White - Black - Dark Brown
Availability: December 15, 2013 for White and Black. Dark Brown will be available February 1, 2014.
