  • Scott on Top Down Under

    Add Comment

    Adam Scott (FootJoy golf shoes, StaSof glove) returned to the winner's circle in a big way over the weekend, winning the Australian Open by five shots for his first professional victory on his home soil.

    Scott, who shot an even-par 72 on Sunday, won 14 times worldwide since turning pro in 2000 before breaking through in his native land. He finished the week with a 15-under 273 total at New South Wales Golf Club.

    The win follows a string of solid finishes for the Aussie who moves back inside the top 50 and most likely locked up an invite to the Masters. He tied for third in the Singapore Open, tied for sixth in the Australian Masters, tied for seventh in the Dubai World Championship and now a victory in the championship all Australians covet outside the four majors.

    "I always thought I'd get my chance," Scott said. "It's so bizarre, this game, that off the back of such a bad year I finally played good enough to win down here.

    "This is very, very special to me to win here," Scott said. "This is going to be very sweet and something I will treasure for the rest of my career."

    Adam Scott fired a 3-under 68 to win the Barclays Singapore Open for the third time. Adam, who was also victorious here in 2006 and 2007, laced up a pair of FJ ICON style #52005 and wore a StaSof glove en route to his seventh career European Tour title. Following a five hour rain delay on Sunday, the leaders returned to the course Monday morning to play the back nine.

    Chased by several players from start to finish, including Ian Poulter who won here last year, the former World Number Three parred the 16th and 17th before finishing with a flourish when he birdied from 12 feet at the last for a three shot margin of victory.

    “It feels great,” said Scott, who last won on The European Tour two and a half years ago. “Relief to finally get finished, it’s been a bit of a long week. I’m very happy to be winning here again.

    Entering the final round one stroke ahead of the field, Scott shot a one under par 34 on the front side to stay in control of the tournament.  On the back nine Scott ran away with the tournament making four birdies, including a chip-in birdie on the par 3 twelfth.  Scott would cap off his captivating weekend with a birdie on the last to win by four shots over world number one Luke Donald finishing in second.  This is Scott's first WGC Victory, which also moves Adam back into the top ten of the Official World Golf Rankings.

  • Scott Masterful in Australia

    Add Comment

    Hometown favorite and fifth ranked player in the world, Adam Scott shot a 5-under 67 to win the Australian Masters at Kingston Heath in Melbourne.  

    Starting the day one stroke back, Scott wasted little time birdieing the first to draw even with the 54 hole leader.  Scott, in FJ Sport and StaSof, then added four more birdies on the front making the turn with a one stroke lead.  On the back nine, Scott added eight straight pars before making birdie at the last to finish at 17 under par, four clear of his closest competitor.  This is Scott's first win of the 2012 season.

    Scott later stated of his win, "This has been a long time coming, This is pretty sweet to be in the gold jacket and hold this trophy that I've been admiring since I was a little kid."

  • Adam Scott - Masterful at Augusta National

    Add Comment

      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."

  • Adam Scott Wins at The Barclays

    Add Comment

    Adam Scott wins the Barclays at Liberty National with a blemish free 66 to win by one over Graham Delaet and three others. 

    Starting the final day a distant 6 strokes behind the leaders, Adam had to put up a low number for any shot at the title.  On the front, Adam made three consecutive birdies to reach nine under par.  He closed out the front with a few pars and posted a 33.  Liberty National continued to firm up  and Adam continued his normal ball striking clinic.  Scott added a couple more pars before birdies at 14 and 16 to reach 11-under par.  Two more pars gave Scott the lead in the clubhouse.

    With many players still on the course the ending was very much in doubt. Scott said in his post round interview, "I am really happy with my game," continuing in his usually casual manner, "It was a positive to get back into the mix at the other majors, and I am pushing hard to get another win -- if not this week, then I will try harder next week." 

    Scott retired to the driving range to stay loose and catch the action on a large Jumbotron-like screen across the way.  He watched on as all players wilted, none of them mustering up the birdies to catch up on the treacherous Liberty National track.  As the final competitor missed his birdie bid at the last, Adam embraced his caddy as the 2013 Barclays Champion.

    Adam Scott opted for the lightweight comfort and stability of the FJ Sport golf shoe, "The power is coming from the ground and my connection to the ground is through my shoe, so it's important that I am in control throughout my golf swing, and I believe the FJ Sport is the shoe that can do that for me."

    Scott also uses the FJ StaSof golf glove,"It's so important you have a good feel through your glove, it is your only connection to the club."

    This is Adam's second win of the of the 2013 season; it also moves him to 2nd in the race for the FedEx Cup.

  • Adam Scott Wins the Australian PGA Championship

    Add Comment

    Arriving to a hero's welcome in his native country, Adam Scott received the key to the city of the Gold Coast following the  Wednesday Pro-Am.  It was Adam's first trip back to Australia since his Master's Triumph back in April.

    Following the round Scott stated, "I wanted to come home straight away after winning, but thought if I come home and start celebrating I might not make it back" 

    Once tournament play began, Scott would not disappoint his hometown crowd as he ran away with the Australian PGA Championship by four strokes.

    Late in the final round, Scott carried a one shot lead into the par 5 twelfth hole before play was halted due to local thunderstorms.  Upon returning to play, Scott launched a 266 yard four iron right at the stick, nearly holing it for albatross. The tap in eagle slammed the door on his competitors, and Scott cruised to the four shot win.

     "I came out and knew I had to do something great to win this," Scott said. "It's been an incredible year since April, and so great to come home. I've had a great week."

    The win also gives Adam Scott the last of the three Australian Majors.

    Scott wore a prototype FJ golf shoe and StaSof glove en route to his winning 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. 

  • FEEL ADVANCED - FootJoy Introduces New D.N.A. Footwear Category

    - The Most Feature-Laden Golf Shoe Ever from the #1 Shoe in Golf -

    (Fairhaven, MA) - From FootJoy, the #1 Shoe in Golf, comes the next advancement in golf footwear - D.N.A. DryJoys Next Advancement. Featuring the most comprehensive feature package ever delivered by FJ, D.N.A. footwear embodies the most proven elements of the world-renown DryJoys franchise with new, cutting-edge componentry and construction methodology.

    "To create the most feature-laden golf shoe in our storied history, we needed to explore the anatomy, or DNA, of our premium footwear products and then scrutinize every aspect throughout the design and development process," said Doug Robinson, Vice President of Design and Development Worldwide. "Every material and every component was carefully considered in order to deliver a shoe with lightweight stability, a precise fit, superior feel and ultimate performance."

    KEY FEATURES AND BENEFITS

    •  The 3D FoamCollar™ for COMFORT
      • The 3D FoamCollar molds to your ankle for ideal comfort, fit and support. Locking your ankle in place eliminates any movement of the foot – a situation that can lead to discomfort power-reduction during the swing.
    • SnugFit Tongue for FIT
      • The SnugFit tongue is engineered utilizing thin, soft, and breathable materials - including MicroVent™ technology- in order to properly conform to the top of your foot providing superb fit and an incredibly comfortable in-shoe environment.
    • NitroThin™ TPU Outsole for STABILITY
      • The all-new NitroThin TPU outsole has been in development for several years, undergoing numerous rounds of testing and technical modifications.  The result is a super thin-yet-strong chassis that frames the soft, FTF internal midsole, delivering the perfect combination of rigidity and flexibility for maximum on-course performance.
    • Xtra-Thick FTF™ FitBed® for Cushioning
      • In order to achieve the sleek, low-profile look of D.N.A. , the midsole was moved inside the shoe.  FTF™ (Fine-Tuned Foam), a new proprietary cushioning material, is used throughout the interior midsole also known as the FitBed. In order to achieve in-shoe stability as well as premium cushioning, two densities of FTF were utilized - a firmer density for stability around the perimeter of the FitBed and a softer density in the heel and forefoot providing industry-leading in-shoe comfort.
    • ChromoSkin™ Leather System by Pittards
      • Finally, D.N.A. DryJoys Next Advancement features the all-new ChromoSkin Leather System by Pittards® of England, one of the premiere suppliers of high performance leather in the world. This unique full grain leather system is supple, lightweight, thin-yet-durable and completely waterproof. By using this premium leather, the wearer will experience tremendous breathability and will find the upper will conform to their feet for an incredible custom fit.


    TOUR VALIDATION
    As with every FJ product, D.N.A. golf shoes have received validation at the highest level. Several players received the shoe at the Presidents Cup and immediately wore it in competition, including Adam Scott, Webb Simpson and Jordan Spieth.

    Adam Scott has worn D.N.A. golf shoes exclusively since September, including while competing at the 2013 Presidents Cup and during his three recent wins in Australia.

    "D.N.A. is the most technologically advanced shoe FJ has ever produced and it embodies everything I am looking for in a golf shoe," said the world's #2 ranked player. "They actually activate my feet, giving me great balance throughout my swing."

    Webb Simpson has also been wearing D.N.A. shoes since the Presidents Cup.

    "You want a golf shoe that is comfortable and stable, and this gives you both. The new technology in the tongue and heel collar allows the shoe to mold to your foot, giving the golfer everything they will need on the course."

    Beginning the day two strokes back at the Crowne Plaza Invitational, both Adam Scott and Jason Dufner shot matching rounds of four under-par 66 to enter a sudden death playoff.

    The two major champions then faced off on the first playoff hole and split with par. On the following playoff hole, Scott sank a 14-footer off the back edge of the green for birdie. Dufner (FJ Icon MyJoys) matched the birdie and the players move to the 18th for the third time on Sunday. Scott then struck a 124-yard approach to 5-feet and rolled in the birdie putt for the victory.
