  • Bill Haas Pulls Away at Congressional

    Add Comment

    Being no stranger to the big stage, 2011 Fedex Cup Champion Bill Haas found victory at the always-daunting Congressional Country Club.

    Beginning the day in a four way tie for first place, Haas knew he could not just back into the title.  Haas made an early birdie at the second before giving a stroke back to par at the 5th.

    Even par for the day heading into the 8th, Haas rolled in a 12 foot birdie to reach 8 under for the tourney.  On the following hole, Haas hit another brilliant approach setting up another birdie. Then on the treacherous par 3 tenth, Haas rolled in his third consecutive birdie to take a two shot lead over fellow FJ Staffer Roberto Castro.

    Castro stuck with Haas over the back nine but could not chip away at his lead.  Haas led by at least two over the entire back nine and calmly rolled in a three foot putt for par at the last to take home the title. 

    "I just kept the ball in front of me,'' Haas said. "Nothing too crazy.'' Always humble, Haas adds a fifth PGA Tour win to his record and moves to 7th in the 2013 Fedex Cup race.

    Haas relied on the lightweight stability of his FJ Sport golf shoes throughout the week.

    Dropping a stroke at the 15th, Billy rebounded with a birdie at the following hole to keep the lead.  Needing a birdie at the par five final hole to wrap up the victory, Horschel drained a 27 foot birdie bid and exploded into emotion at the realization that he is now a PGA Tour winner.

    “I’ve been playing very nicely the last four months, not making a lot of mistakes, but just not sinking enough putts,” said Aiken, continuing, “This week a few went in, I hit some better iron shots which gave me a better chance to sink some putts, and I played some phenomenal golf.”

    This is Aiken's second European Tour Victory; the win also moves Aiken into the top 100 on the official world golf rankings.

  • Jason Dufner Claims First PGA Tour Victory in Louisiana

    Add Comment

    Jason Dufner has been on the cusp of winning several tournaments in the past two years and today he fulfilled his potential by claiming the Zurich Classic of New Orleans.  

    Through the first three rounds of play, Dufner shot rounds of 67-65-67 to sit atop the leaderboard at 17-under par, two clear of his competition heading into Sunday's final round.

    Dufner, wearing XPS-1 and FJ Apparel, started off the day with five straight pars before a bogey on the sixth hole that dropped him from the lead.  He rebounded quickly with back-to-back birdies on seven and eight to retake the top spot.  Dufner added another birdie at 10 to retain his lead.  Then after several gutsy back nine par saves, Dufner's drive on the par four 16th found a hazard.  With an alligator lurking nearby, Dufner wisely took a drop and hit his ball to the right side of the green.  Now looking at 40-plus feet for par to stay tied for the lead, Dufner calmly rolled in the improbable putt to keep his momentum.  After grinding out two more pars on 17 and 18, Dufner was headed to a sudden death playoff. 

    Both players exchanged pars on the opening playoff hole and they headed back to the 18th tee for the third time today.  This time Dufner seized the moment, hitting the par five 18th in two shots and making a routine two putts for birdie and the victory.  This is Dufner's first PGA Tour win.  Post round Dufner stated of his winning performance, "I am really, really excited and to get the monkey off my back is a great feeling". 

    Luke Donald (FJ ICON MyJoys) also put on an impressive performance, shooting a final round 67 to finish solo third and retaking the number one spot on the Official World Golf Rankings.

  • Luke Donald Reclaims the World Number One Ranking

    Add Comment

    Two weeks ago Luke Donald lost the world number one ranking to Rory McIlroy after holding it for 40 consecutive weeks.  This week, Englishman Luke Donald, wearing custom FJ ICON MyJoys, emerged from a four man playoff to win the Transitions Championship at Innisbrook Golf Resort to reclaim the world number one ranking.

    Beginning the day three strokes off of the 54-hole lead, Donald shot a flawless bogey free, five under par 66 to tie Robert Garrigus (FJ SPORT) and two other competitors for a sudden death playoff.

    Donald, teeing off last in the playoff, narrowly missed his tee shot to the right rough. Hitting his approach shot first, Donald took dead aim striking a mid iron to within five feet of the hole.  His playing competitors could not muster similar brilliance on their approaches and fell outside of Donald.  With all of his playing competitors missing their birdie bids, Donald had the five footer for the win and the world number one ranking.  Luke stroked the putt and watched it curl into the left side of the cup for the victory.

    Luke Donald still has his eyes on this seasons first major stating, "I feel like I've achieved a lot in my career but this is perfect preparation. I've got two weeks off now and can look forward to Augusta."

    Rory McIlroy also chimed via twitter on the Englishman supplanting him as the top ranked golfer, "Well I enjoyed it while it lasted! Congrats @LukeDonald! Impressive performance!"

A unique history I think has been made, and glad to be a part of it.”
