Our European Tour staff is in Shanghai, China this week for the BMW Asian Open. However, a lot of the talk early in the week was about the wild rain players endured during the final round last week in Beijing. A lot of players were singing the praises of their FootJoys...
Markus Brier commented that his pair of ReelFit (right, top) kept him completely dry and their lightness helped him through a very long Sunday.
Louis Oosthuizen heard enough comments about the new DryJoys last weekend that he has ordered two pairs to try in the coming weeks.
Graeme McDowell said that his ProDry Golf Socks came through a tough test in Beijing with flying colours. He said the benefits from the cushioning of a brand new pair were terrific in the poor weather conditions of last weekend.
Looking forward to this week, here are a few other items that were discussed...
Martin Kaymer returned to action on the PGA European Tour wearing a sporty pair of all-white Classics Dry Premiere (right, bottom). After a discussion with him, we have decided he should try a narrower fit so he can benefit from greater support and stability... we will get something to him to try as quickly as possible.
Michael Lorenzo-Vera asked about buying a pair of Exotics. His countrymen who have bought recently are so happy with theirs that he feels he can't miss out!!
