PGA Tour Rookie, Chesson Hadley won the Puerto Rico Open in only his 13th PGA Tour start. The Georgia Tech standout captured the lead thanks for a third round 66. Stating post round, "You got to stay aggressive out here. I've learned that. For me, if I kind of take the foot off the pedal a little bit, I'll kind of lose focus and I won't be as sharp as I would like to be, so I plan on being really aggressive."
Hadley's plan for Sunday's final round was a good one, making birdies on three of his first five holes to maintain control of the tournament. Making the turn in 33, Hadley played mistake free golf the rest of the way. Adding birdies at 17 and 18 to post a four day total of 21 under par, two clear of his closest competitors.
Hadley looked to his Web.com experience the previous year to pull through on Sunday, "The two wins last year, that helps a lot because you're there, you've learned how to win, you learn how not to choke, and there's a lot going on."
The win gives Hadley a two-year tour exemption on the PGA Tour and spots in The Players Championship, PGA Championship and 2015 Tournament of Champions.
Hadley relied on the most stable shoe in the FJ line, Custom XPS-1 MyJoys golf shoes and the FJ StaSof golf glove.

A few weeks ago at Riviera the FJ team met with Hadley and discussed how to properly celebrate out on tour.
Awesome you many. Great win for "Team FJ" and Chesson. I'm sure we'll be hearing more about this you player in the future. Congratulations....chuck :-)
Just saw the "inside the PGA" with Chesson and he seems like a really goofy kid, but also a very committed golfer. Congrats to him and his family and Footjoy !
GREAT WIN FOR HADLEY AND FOR THE FJ & TITLEIST FAMILY. IT NEVER CEASES TO AMAZE ME HOW MANY PLAYERS USE THE FJ BRAND EQUIPMENT WHILE WINNING. MUST SOMETHING TO THE IDEA "THE MARK OF A PLAYER".HADLEY APPEARS TO BE ANOTHER UP AND COMING YOUNG GUN TO ADD TO THE LIST OF PLAYERS THAT ARE MAKING THIS SEASON LOOK VERY COMPETITIVE.
Great to see another FJ/Titleist win on the board, they are coming fast and furious. I guess it's to be expected with the best apparel and equipment in the game.
Congrats Chesson !!
The start of another great month for FJ and Titleist. Congrats
Great shoes. Can't wait to get the MyJoys XPS-1's in. They will compliment my DNA's as well.
