We received the following update from Jonathan Loosemore, one our European Tour reps at the Volvo China Open...
Plenty to report from Beijing:
2007 Volvo China Open winner, Markus Brier (right), broke out a new pair of white smooth/brown tumbled ReelFit for his title defence in Beijing this week. Brier, who chooses to wear ReelFit exclusively also was excited to order some new SciFlex Colour gloves... being a patriot, he ordered mostly red gloves, since red/white are his national colours but also chose some to match his new shirts for the season.
Other SciFlex wearers were given the chance to order SciFlex Colours this week too... many chose a selection of colours to match their clothing.
Pre-tournament favourite, Graeme McDowell, was delighted with his shipment of FootJoy golf socks he received last week. He proudly flashed his ProDry socks to me as he walked onto the range to prepare for Wednesday's pro-am!!
Titleist/FootJoy staffer, Jose-Filipe Lima, was praising the new DryJoys this week. He has been trying the shoes for the last few weeks and has decided he would like to wear them almost exclusively. He said he felt a lot less tired after a round due to the improved cushioning of the PODS.
Challenge Tour graduate, Leif Westerberg, has now received his custom built Classics Tour... the left shoe has been built up by one centimetre to help him overcome a leg-length discrepancy that has been causing him discomfort for a number of years. He is very happy with the results of FootJoy's custom team.
Soren Kjeldsen, Ross McGowan and Asian Tour staffer Prom Meesawat are now proudly displaying FJ logos on their collars.
That's all for this week.
