Tournament organizers at the Shell Houston Open are honoring President H.W. Bush with a "crazy sock" day this Saturday at the Shell Houston Open. Why "crazy socks? As a huge fan of golf and its fashion, President Bush has developed quite the reputation for wearing brightly colored and patterned socks on and off the golf course.
"Be forewarned, my fellow golf fans, that donning unconventional socks is not for the faint of heart,” said President Bush
Players and spectators are encouraged to wear crazy socks to honor the day and the President for his humanitarian efforts in the Houston area.
We have been seeding our tour players with the latest colorfully patterned ProDry socks this week so they will have no choice but to participate!
At FootJoy we are always looking to improve our products to better suit the golfer's needs and what better way to do that then have our consumers test product for us! We would like to extend an invitation to our FJ Community members to come visit our Brockton, MA testing facility. Our lab is equipped with many tools that help us in testing footwear, including the use of a golf simulator, force platforms, and a 3D harness system. We generally test current production FJ’s, as well as prototype products with our main objective to learn how our golf shoes perform. At every test, you will receive a sleeve of Pro V-1’s as a thank you for your participation. Criteria for our current test are male, right handed, and shoe size between 9-13. If you fit these criteria and would like to participate please email FJonlinecomments@acushnetgolf.com with a contact number and the best available time you would be able to participate.Looking forward to hearing from you!
