    Add Comment

    Hunter Mahan shot a final round six under par round of 65 to win The Barclays at Ridgewood Country Club.  Beginning the day one stroke off the 54-hole lead, Mahan birdied the first hole to tie the leaders. He added another at the fifth and made the turn in two-under par 33. 

    On the back nine Mahan birdied five holes in a seven hole stretch to race to the top of the leaderboard.  On the 18th Mahan dropped his only stroke of the day, but had enough of a cushion to win by two.

    Mahan relied on D.N.A. golf shoes and the SciFlex golf glove en route to the victory.

    This is Hunter Mahan's sixth PGA Tour victory.  He moves to the top of the Fedex Cup ranking with the win and continues his streak as the only player to play in every Fedex Cup playoff event since it's inception.

    D.A. Points (SYNR-G #53918 and SciFlex #68115) won the AT&T National Pebble Beach Pro-Am with a 5-under par 67.  This is D.A.'s first career victory, earning him a spot in The Masters along with a 2 year PGA Tour exemption.  Standing in the fairway on the hardest hole Pebble has to offer, the par 5 14th, Points holed his third shot for eagle giving him a 1 shot lead with 4 to play.  Points then holed a 30 foot birdie putt on the par 4 15th to all but assure him the victory.  "Pebble Beach may be the most iconic place in America to play golf, and to win here, it's just a dream come true," said Points.

    Hunter Mahan (FJ Icon) shot a 66 to finish solo second.

  • Career Defining Moments for Mahan, Lunde

    WGC-Bridgestone Invitational

    Hunter Mahan won for the second time this year, coming from four shots back to start the day to win the World Golf Championship - Bridgestone Invitational. Mahan ran off five birdies on the front nine to take the lead, then had three clutch par saves down the stretch to finish off a 6-under 64 and a two-shot victory over fellow FJ player, Ryan Palmer (FJ ICON style #52005). While both players wore FJ ICON golf shoes, Hunter went with a custom design through the MyJoys program. Hunter also wore a StaSof glove while Palmer opted for SciFlex.

    Mahan's victory locked up a spot on the United States Ryder Cup team as he is now No. 2 in points with only this week's PGA Championship remaining before the top eight Americans qualify. Hunter has played on the last three U.S. teams as a Captains Pick.

    "That was my goal at the beginning of the year, to make the team on my own," Mahan said.

    Hunter shot a final round 6-under 64 to finish with a 12-under 268 total. He became the third American with multiple victories on the PGA TOUR this year, and likely will move to a career-best No. 12 in the world.

    Turning Stone Resort Championship

    Meanwhile at the Turning Stone Resort Championship, it was a major accomplishment of a different sort for FJ player Bill Lunde (FJ ICON). Less than five years after he quit competitive golf, he earned a spot in next week's PGA Championship by winning the Turning Stone Resort Championship. Lunde shot a final round 6-under 66 to rally for a come-from-behind victory with a 17-under 271 total.

    "All these guys out here, you're never far from playing good. You can sit here and say, 'I'm playing awful, I don't know how I'm going to break 80 today,' but you're never that far off."

    Lunde made the weekend cut by one stroke and but trailed by only four heading into the final round following a 64 on Saturday. Lunde climbed to the top of Sunday's leaderboard with six birdies and a 30 on the front side.

    None of the success seemed possible to Lunde in 2005 when he stopped playing after a tough year on the Nationwide Tour. He went to the PGA TOUR's Q-School in November and didn't qualify for the second stage so found a job in real estate in Las Vegas. He returned to the Nationwide Tour in 2008 and took advantage of his second chance. He won the Nationwide Children's Hospital Invitational that year and finished fifth on the money list, which earned him a spot on the PGA TOUR in 2009.

    "I tried to make an agreement with myself when I started playing again to ... if I could just have a better attitude right off the bat, I'd become a better player than I ever was before," he said. "And that was kind of my goal. Obviously it doesn't happen every day, but it's definitely better than it was and something I'll probably battle for the rest of my life. I'm just so competitive. I can't handle not playing well or bad breaks. It gets me down."
