    ''I played some really good shots and made a couple of safe putts, hit a lot of fairways." Westwood later said of his play on Sunday.

    Westwood relied on DryJoys Casual golf shoes and the StaSof golf glove en route to the victory.

    ''Just phenomenal, I'm worn out,'' said of the seven hole playoff win versus the number three player in the world.

    Chalmers relied on FJ ICON MyJoys with the Boa Closure system and a full range of FJ Performance Apparel.

  • Uihlein Breaks Through in Portugal

    Add Comment

     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.
