Harris English battled rain-soaked conditions at the OHL Classic at Mayakoba to rack up his second PGA Tour win in five months. Delays ran rampant due to severe storms over the El Camaleon golf course during the first three days forcing players to play most of their third and all of their final rounds on a marathon Sunday.
Beginning the final 18 in a tie for the lead, the 24 year old former Georgia Bulldog ran off seven birdies in his first thirteen holes to create an insurmountable lead over the field. English cruised through the finish line, shooting a 65 to take home the tournament by four strokes.
Harris English wore FJ Sport and StaSof for his dominating performance.

On the European Tour, Fedex Cup Champion and arguably the hottest player on the planet right now, Henrik Stenson blew away the field in the World Tour Championship in Dubai. Shooting a final-round 8-under 64, that included a tap in eagle at the final hole, giving the big Swede a six stroke victory.
Stenson has now become the first player to win the Race to Dubai and the Fedex Cup in the same season.
"I have managed to do something very, very special here this week by winning both in America and the Race to Dubai," adding, "It has been an incredible Summer for me, the Autumn in America was great, and now this...It has been a dream season," said Stenson following his win.
Stenson opted for FJ ICON and Pure Touch Limited throughout his successful season on both the PGA and European Tours.
On the Australasian Tour, Masters Champion and world number two, Adam Scott continued his winning ways by winning for the second consecutive week at the Australian Masters. Last year Scott won this tournament and claimed it gave him the confidence he needed to win the green jacket a few months later.
This year on a difficult wind-swept Royal Melbourne golf course Adam Scott shot rounds of 67-66-66-71, to place him at 14-under par two clear of his closest pursuant.
“I think it’s very hard to win two tournaments full stop, let alone back to back, so I’m quite pleased with myself this week," Adam stated post round. “Sometimes you win a little bit ugly. All the good stuff I had done in the first three rounds counted for a lot, even though it wasn’t the prettiest golf today."
Adam Scott has been testing a new prototype FJ shoe and his trusted StaSof glove during his two wins in Australia.
Mikko Ilonen cruised to a three shot victory at the Nordea Masters, winning his first European Tour title for six years at Bro Hof Slott.
The 33 year old, whose two previous victories came in 2007, the latter in this event, started the day two clear and an imposing display meant the gap was not closed, despite a hugely impressive 12 under weekend total from FJ Apparel Ambassador Bernd Wiesberger (FJ Sport & StaSof)
After turning in 34, Ilonen (FJ ICON & StaSof) then birdied the 11th from 12 feet, before his only set-back with a three-putt bogey at the long 12th. A sublime chip to three feet at the next quickly atoned for that error, and there were no dramas over the closing stretch.
A three under par 69 ensured a 21 under total and three shot victory margin for the Finn.
“It’s pretty special. I could feel a lot of support from Finland, especially today," said Ilonen,
Asked about his bogey at the 12th, he added: “I just got ahead of myself with the first putt. I’ve said for weeks now it doesn’t really bother me if I make a bogey because I know I can make it up and it was the first time I went for the 13th in two.”
Ilonen had been a runner-up in Morocco before finishing second to Brett Rumford in China already this season, and was pleased with the way he dealt with those disappointments.
“To bounce back this soon is really good,” he continued. “It’s really satisfying, but the show I saw in China - I didn’t lose the tournament, Brett won it, so hats off to him."
“Obviously I’ve been waiting for this moment for a few weeks now. People have been expecting me to win but most of all I’ve been expecting myself to win, so to pull it off here after those second places is very satisfying.
Last week’s winner Matteo Manassero (DryJoys Tour & StaSof) put in another admirable performance finishing tied fourth. The Italian carded an ill-timed double bogey on the 18th green on Saturday, however, which left him with too much to do in his final round.

Coming off major heartbreak at last year's Open Championship, Adam Scott knows what major pressure feels like on Sunday of a major championship. With that experience in his rear view, Adam Scott put on a performance for the ages winning the 2013 Masters in a playoff over Angel Cabrera. Adam Scott began the day one stroke behind the leaders, at six under par. Opening his final round with a bogey, Adam quickly gained the stroke back with a long left-to-right birdie putt at the third to climb into contention. Parring out on the front, left Scott three strokes behind then leader Cabrera. With ground to make up, Adam narrowly missed the hazard on the heavily protected par five 13th green. A chip and a short putt gave Adam birdie, closing the gap on the leaders. Scott struck again hitting the par five 15th green in two shots and two putting for a birdie, which put him putting in a tie for first place. After just missing birdie bids on 16 and 17, Scott had a downhill 20 foot birdie putt on the 72nd hole of regulation. After much deliberation with his caddy, Scott stood over the putt and brushed it in the low side of the hole, exploding in emotion as it rattled around the bottom of the cup to reach nine under par. Not to be outdone, grizzly veteran and two-time major champion, Angel Cabrera knew a birdie was needed to have any hope of another green jacket. Splitting the fairway, Cabrera then stuck his approach shot to a mere putters' length. Cabrera converted the birdie bid forcing the playoff with Scott. On the first hole of the sudden death playoff, both players launched drives right up the center of the narrow, punishing fairway. Hitting their approach shots, both players hit the green only to spin off one of the steep Augusta National false front's. Cabrera was outside of Scott and missed his birdie chip by inches. Splitting pars, Scott and Cabrera headed to the 10th where Bubba's famous hooked gap wedge occurred the previous year. Hitting the ski sloped fairway in regulation, both players hit brilliant shots into the green leaving makeable birdie putts for the win. Cabrera putted first, facing a slippery right-to-left slider, and missed ever so slightly on the high side giving Adam a putt for the win. Taking his time to find the perfect read Scott stood over his putt drained it to become a Master's Champion.
This is Adam's first Major Championship and first Master's Championship for an Australian born player.
"All of the power is coming from the ground and my connection to the ground is through my shoe, so I believe I need to be in control and connected to the ground throughout my golf swing and I believe the FJ Sport can do that for me." said Adam Scott on why he chooses FJ Sport. Continuing, "All the feel in this game comes through your hands and I choose StaSof because it gives me the feel I am looking for in a golf glove."

Michael Thompson survived the brutal weekend conditions at PGA National to claim the Honda Classic by two strokes over former U.S. Open Champion, Geoff Ogilvy.
Already eight under at the halfway point of the tournament, Thompson looked to be the man to beat over the weekend. Playing at the top of the leaderboard, Thompson carded 4 bogeys and 4 birdies en route to his Saturday even par, 70 tally. The eight under total was good enough to earn Thompson a share of the 54 hole lead with fellow FJ staffer Luke Guthrie.
Playing in the final group for the second straight day, Thompson struck early with an eagle at the par 5 third hole to reach ten under par. Thompson dropped a shot at the next, but answered with a birdie on the following hole. Thompson, in FJ ICON and StaSof, managed to grind out a one under front nine, leaving him at 9 under for the championship.
Continuing his conservative play, Thompson made six straight pars before three putting for bogey at 16 -- a hole Oglivy birdied to get within two of Thompson. Ogilvy birdied 17, as well, to get within one of the Alabama grad, Thompson. Staying poised, Thompson rattled off a birdie on the last to shut the door on his competitors for his first PGA Tour victory.

haven't really been thinking about it but I'm in contention now.
