Hometown favorite, Jimmy Walker cruised to a four stroke victory at the Valero Texas Open. Leading by four entering the final round, Walker remained steady on the difficult windswept TPC San Antonio golf course and shot even par over his first nine. The former Baylor Bear added second nine birdies at 16 and 17 to remain at the top of the leaderboard. A routine par at the last locked up the victory.
Walker relied on FJ ICON MyJoys (Thursday and Sunday) and HYPERFLEX (Friday and Saturday) en route to the victory. Also aiding Walker's grip on the tournament was the FJ StaSof golf glove, the most relied on glove on tour. Lastly, Walker stayed cool and dry in full line FJ Performance Apparel.
This is Walker's fifth PGA Tour victory in the past two seasons, the most of any PGA Tour player in the same time period. The win solidifies Walker's lead in the Fedex Cup standings and moves the 36 year-old to tenth in the Official World Golf Rankings.

Former Oklahoma State standout and US Amateur Champion, Peter Uihlein shot a final round of 68 to capture his first professional career victory at the Madeira Islands Open in Santo Da Serra, Portugal. Beginning the day one stroke behind leader Mark Tullo, Ulhlein opened with a bogey falling further behind. However, Uihlein fought back to even par for the front nine and continued to make four birdies in his final eight holes to reach 15 under par. The total gave him a two stroke victory over fellow FJ Staffers, Morten Orum Madsen and Mark Tullo.
Uihlein was ready for any conditions the seaside golf course could conjure in full line FJ Performance Apparel, DryJoys Tour golf shoes and the StaSof golf glove.
Uihlein stated post round, "To do it playing well on the back nine coming down the stretch is sweet. ... I just knuckled down, I guess. It was all putting that did it today; I was just trying to free up and they started to roll in, so it was nice."
Peter also spoke of his decision to join the European Tour instead of testing his game on the American circuit, "You grow up quick out here and that was the main reason I came over...It's been a good process so far and hopefully I can keep going."
This is Peter's third top ten in seven European Tour starts this season. The win also gives Uihlein European Tour Status through the 2014 season.
