*Special thanks to Ryan Hunt and the European Tour team for this update
This week's entry comes from the home of golf, St Andrews. Greetings from Team FJ, at the home of golf, St Andrews. Last time we were here, FJ Ambassador Louis Oosthuizen claimed the Claret Jug in spectacular style. Bodes well for another FJ Ambassador to conquer the Scottish links and lift another piece of silverware. A big congratulations to Team Europe, who came out on top in an amazingly close Ryder Cup in Wales. Many FJ wearers performed key roles for both teams, and it was a fantastic week despite the dreary weather. With this week being a Pro-Am format, the course was buzzing with professionals and celebrities alike. The tour trailor had a former British Wimbledon star, an ex England and Liverpool footballer and one of the greatest spin bowlers of all time, on board, all at the same time!! There were plenty of shoes to pick up this week, and FJ Ambassador Danny Willett, was one of the players who needed to do so. Danny had a pair of the FJ ICONS waiting to be collected. Danny loves the Traditional Saddle Icons as they look 'Stylish'. The young Englishman will be looking to keep up his good form this year, and push into the top 20 of the R2D money list. Scotsman, David Drysdale also picked up 3 new pairs of FJ ICON to keep him looking smart for the remainder of the season, and Indian SSP Chowrasia, also had a pair of MyJoy DryJoy's to pick up. FJ Ambassador, Mikko Ilonen, nearly clinched the title here last year. An untimely meeting with the road at hole 17 ended Mikko's charge up the leader board, but still helped him on his quest to keep his card. Currently sitting at 72 on the R2D standings, Mikko will have no such worries this season. He is using a new FJ glove for 2011 this week, so hopefully that will help Mikko avoid the trouble on 17 this year! Team FJ also launched another new product to the FJ Ambassadors in the field this week. The new FJ Base Layer is a new and innovative under garment that is designed specifically for golfers. The 'Golf Compression' base layer is designed to keep maintain body heat whilst wicking away the moisture from the body, providing thermal protection, an essential for this week! The following players are currently using the Base Layer, keep your eye's peeled for the FJ on the sleeve - James Kingston Peter O'Malley George Coetzee Matteo Manassero Kenneth Ferrie Gregory Bourdy Scott Strange Gregory Havret Pablo Larrazabal Rafael Cabrera-Bello Tano Goya Steve Webster Ignacio Garrido Brett Rumford Paul Waring Gary Boyd Rick Kulacz With over 65% of the field choosing to wear FJ shoes, it is clear to see the number 1 shoe in golf is on top, at the home of golf.
GREAT ARTICLE CHRIS.
THE FJ ON THE SLEEVE IS A GREAT IDEA LONG TIME COMING.
CAN'T WAIT TO SEE THEM
Is the layering system out yet? i was hoping to win one of the packages, but I haven't won, so I guess I gotta pay up!
Sounds like FJ is right on top of things. UAs gear is definitely not the one to wear. Only had one piece of the gear and now my grandson has it. Just not comfortable in it and he is a lot thinner than I am and said he seems to like it, but also said it has a tendency to maintain moisture. Will be curious to hear how the Pros like the new undergarment. Maybe we could hear what they have to say.
And who else would we expect to be numero uno in shoes? FJ makes the finest shoes out there and backs up their shoes with personnel that care about the players and their equipment.
Gotta get this off the wish list and in the closet. Nice article. Go FJ
