D.A. Points came back from a nearly three hour rain delay to win the Shell Houston Open by one stroke over Henrik Stenson and Billy Horschel.
Beginning the day one back, Points made six birdies in the first 14 holes, racing to a one stroke lead before play ceased. With a two year PGA Tour exemption and a Masters invitation on the line, D.A. made clutch pars on the final four holes including up and downs on the final two to post the clubhouse lead at 16 under. No one could catch the total, which gave D.A. his second PGA tour victory.
Points trusted his XPS-1 golf shoes and FJ Sciflex glove en route to his win, "The XPS-1 gives me the comfort and stability I need to play my best golf." Continuing, "The SciFlex fits my hand and is breathable for the hot conditions we always play in."
Seven different FJ styles graced the top 25 of the Shell Houston Open. D.A. opted for max stability of the XPS-1, second place finisher Billy Horschel went for fashion forward performance in FJ Icon MyJoys. Other players in the top 25, Ben Crane in Contour, Oothuizen in DryJoys Tour, Bill Haas in FJ Sport, Westwood in FJ Icon, and Wheatcroft in the M:Project. FJ truly has a shoe for every golfer and every swing.

On the Web.com Tour, Edward Loar became the first player on a professional tour to win in M:Project from FJ. The lefties 17-under par total was good enough for a two stroke victory over fellow FJ staffer, Morgan Hoffman.
Loar stated post round, "They’re all hard to win especially having to battle the elements today."
Hoffman also spoke volumes of his fellow Oklahoma State alum's play, "He knows his game right now. He’s a great player and a great guy. He knows how to handle it and I congratulate him.”
The win moves Loar to number one on the Web.com Tour money list.,"It’s a great start to the year. I think everyone’s goal is to be No. 1 out here,” said Loar of his new position on tour. This is Loar's second career win on the Web.com Tour.

INTRODUCING M:PROJECT FROM FOOTJOYMinimal Construction = Maximum Feel
(Please visit the site to view this video)
(Fairhaven, MA) -- FootJoy, the #1 Shoe in Golf, announces the introduction of an all new footwear category called M:PROJECT™. With a tremendous selection of industry-leading platform stability products already embraced by players around the world, FJ’s new M:PROJECT category gives players a new option – lightweight, ultra-flexible, minimally constructed footwear delivering maximum feel and real-time feedback.
“At FJ we believe that there is no single shoe that is best suited for every type of player which is why our Footwear team develops products with specific types of players in mind.” said Mike Foley, Director of Marketing, Footwear. “The M:PROJECT is the perfect extension to FJ's performance lineup. This new category targets players seeking lower profile, minimalist-type footwear. Not only does the player get a better sense of the ground beneath them, they also are more tuned-in to the movement of their lower half throughout the swing.”
Doug Robinson, Vice President of Footwear Design & Development Worldwide and his team have tested thousands of players from elite Tour professionals to amateurs at the state-of-the-art Shoe Box testing facility in Brockton, MA. Working in conjunction with Dr Greg Rose at TPI, their respective teams have observed a segment of players who require more movement in their feet in order to create the proper ground force reactions in their golf swing.
According to Dr. Rose, “M:PROJECT is designed for the golfer to increase the movement, to feel the ground and sense things underfoot they could not before. With each step you take you start creating more mobility, which teaches you how to create more power in your golf swing. ”
