    Next Generation Spikeless Golf Shoe Performance

    (Fairhaven, MA) - FootJoy, the #1 Shoe in Golf, introduces the all-new DryJoys Casual performance spikeless golf shoe.  DryJoys Casual is a natural extension of the storied DryJoys® footwear line, designed for the player who values an on-and-off course shoe yet still demands Tour-level comfort, support, and stability in golf footwear.

    A new proprietary polymer outsole material called Fine Tuned Foam™ (FTF) was developed for the DryJoys Casual outsole unit. FTF is 10% lighter than conventional EVA Foams providing enhanced cushioning and shock absorption for added comfort. DryJoys Casual’s innovative design features two distinct layers of varying densities of FTF, each with specific characteristics.  These FTF layers are fused together to deliver comfort and create the most performance-driven spikeless outsole from FootJoy. The top layer of FTF is softer to provide the golfer with all day comfort. The lower/outer portion of FTF if firmer and gives the player perimeter stability around the foot for maximum support.  Finally, TPU skeletal traction strips are embedded within the FTF outsole material to provide the golfer with enhanced traction and lateral stability during the golf swing.

    “Years of research have gone into the development of the FTF material,”says Mike Foley, Director of Product Management, FJ Footwear. “The result is a category of shoes that are luxuriously soft and comfortable but perform like nimble, high-end athletic footwear.  It was this combination of comfort and performance that attracted Hunter Mahan who was the first player to wear DryJoys Casual shoes on Tour, unveiling an early prototype at the Open Championship.”

    DryJoys Casual shoes feature Extreme Comfort Leather™(ECL), developed in conjunction with Pittards®of England.  This super-soft premium leather contains a proprietary membrane-free waterproofing system and is 30% softer than previous generations of FJ performance leather.

    DryJoys Casual will be initially available in three different color options.
        - White
        - Black
        - Dark Brown

    Availability: December 15, 2013 for White and Black. Dark Brown will be available February 1, 2014.

    Four additional colors will be added to the DryJoys Casual lineup in early Spring.

    Add Comment

    Lee Westwood rolled to a seven shot victory in the Maybank Malaysian Open. 

    Beginning the day with a one stroke advantage, Westwood quickly increased his lead to four strokes before a thunderstorm delayed play for over four hours.  Westwood returned to the course and promptly birdied the 13th hole to increase his lead to six shots.  Parring the next four holes, the Englishman closed out the tournament in style by rolling in a 15 foot birdie putt on the final hole of regulation to win by seven.

    “It’s a golf course that suits my game; it’s very tight in certain areas. I played well, I putted well, and the short game is good." Westwood stated post round.

    Westwood relied on our performance spikeless model, the DryJoys Casual golf shoe and the StaSof golf glove en route to victory.

  • Zach Johnson Wins a Showdown at the Open Championship!

    Add Comment

    Zach Johnson emerged victorious from a three man FJ playoff in the 144th playing of the Open Championship! 

    Needing a birdie on the final hole of regulation to take the clubhouse lead at 15-under par, Johnson sank 20 plus foot putt and watched as his playing competitors tried to catch him.  Louis Oosthuizen and Marc Leishman were able to do so and the three golfers headed to a four hole aggregate playoff to determine the champion.  

    On the first hole, Oosthuizen and Johnson carded birdies.  Johnson poured in a second birdie putt on the following hole to take the lead over Oosthuizen and Leishman.  On the treacherous road hole each player made bogey.  Now on the 18th tee with a one stroke lead, Johnson hit the wide 18th fairway and pitched his ball safely beyond the pin.  Johnson's birdie putt slid by the hole and he tapped in for par.  Oosthuizen had a chance to tie, but his putt slid by giving Johnson the victory. 

    Each player in the playoff relied on a model from our DryJoys Lineup.  Zach led the way in DryJoys Tour MyJoys, Louis in DryJoys Casual and Marc in D.N.A.  Each player also relied on FJ golf gloves during their Open perfornance, Johnson and Lieshman in StaSof and Oosthizen in SciFlex Tour

    This is Johnson's second major victory.

    Justin Thomas shot a final round six under par 66 to capture the CIMB Classic at Kuala Lumpur Golf and Country Club in Malaysia. The former Alabama star made three consecutive birdies late in his final round to take the outright lead.   He capped it off with a clutch up and down on the final hole to lock up the victory.  Thomas's tournament record 26-under par total left him one stroke in front of fellow FJ Staffer Adam Scott (DryJoys Casual & StaSof) who closed with a final round 63. 

    Thomas relied on FJ ICON MyJoys and the Pure Touch Limited golf glove en route to his first PGA Tour victory. 

    "I just kept telling myself that it’s tough to win … we’re in a sport where the winning percentage isn’t in your favor, and I put myself there a bunch and I just need to keep doing so and moments like this can happen." said Thomas on his victory.
