    In back to back weeks Billy Horschel is taking home first place hardware by winning the Tour Championship presented by Coca Cola and the season long FedEx Cup race.

    Entering the four tournament FedEx Cup playoff in the 69th position, Billy Horschel finished T2 in Boston and won last week in Denver to sit inside the top five of the FedEx Cup points standings.

    Horschel began Sunday's final round with a one stroke lead and did not trail the entire day.  His final round two under par 68 was good enough for a three stroke victory and golf's largest prize.

    Billy relied on FJ Icon MyJoys golf shoes and the StaSof golf glove en route to the victory.

    Horschel is the first FedEx Cup Champion that started the playoffs outside the top 30 in points.

    FJ CELEBRATES 25TH ANNIVERSARY OF WEATHERSOF® WITH NEW ENHANCED VERSION OF THE WORLD’S MOST POPULAR GOLF GLOVE

    FootJoy®, the #1 Glove in Golf, has revolutionized the comfort and performance of the world’s most popular glove, WeatherSof, by combining improved breathability and flexibility function while providing maximum durability and superior grip performance for all-climate play.

    Through FJ’s unwavering commitment to innovation-driven performance, WeatherSof has excelled as the world’s best-selling glove since launching 25 years ago. More than 90 million WeatherSof gloves have helped golfers to perform at their peak in all weather conditions, establishing this technologically-advanced model as the preferred choice of one in every five golfers in the United States according to Golf Datatech LLC.

    Following extensive research and development by FJ’s industry-leading design team, a host of new technologies have been engineered into the 2015 iteration of the WeatherSof glove to enhance its already outstanding combination of features and benefits.

    The exclusive incorporation of sophisticated FiberSof™ microfiber material on the back of the hand allows the glove to better conform to the shape of the hand and fingers, providing a consistent fit for all wearers.

    Taction2® Advanced Performance Cabretta Leather™ has been strategically placed on the palm and thumb to benefit performance in these key stress areas. This not only improves control during the swing as a result of advancements in grip and feel, but also increases the longevity of the glove through superior durability.

    By extending the coverage of the PowerNet™ material featured across the knuckles and back of the fingers, this allows golfers to gain better breathability, flexibility and ultimately a more comfortable golf glove.  A ball marker on all WeatherSof gloves adds value and convenience.

    “As the world’s best-selling and most trusted golf glove for the past 25 years, WeatherSof is an integral member of the FootJoy glove family and I am delighted that we are able to mark such an important anniversary by introducing this new and improved model to golfers worldwide,” said Maria Bonzagni, Senior Director of Marketing, FJ Gloves and Accessories.

    “Our unwavering commitment to product and performance excellence has installed the WeatherSof glove as the undisputed leader in comfort, durability and value since 1990. When you combine these attributes with a great value price point, it’s easy to see how WeatherSof has earned its position as the industry’s most popular glove.”

    “With marked improvements in comfort, feel, fit and durability, we have no doubt it will continue to be the ‘go-to’ glove for millions of golfers worldwide and continue its longstanding leadership position as the world’s #1 Selling Glove for years to come.”

    The new WeatherSof is available in an impressive 48 size options, ensuring an all-encompassing provision of Men’s Left, Cadet, Right and Women’s Left, Right and Pair sizes. In addition, WeatherSof is available in all white, all black and six fashion colors for both men and women to give even more standout appeal to this iconic product.

    Whether it is the #1 Cabretta leather glove in golf, StaSof®, the vibrant colors of FJ Spectrum®, the customized cool fit of StaCool®, the powerful grip and moisture resistance of SciFlex®, the precision fit of GTxtreme®, the long-lasting properties of WeatherSof or the advanced wet-weather capabilities of RainGrip® and WinterSof ®, FJ remains the overwhelming favorite for golfers of all abilities around the world.

    FootJoy, the #1 Glove in Golf, debuts golfgloveguide.com, a new microsite dedicated to educating players about the importance of a proper-fitting golf glove and providing insight as to how a glove can enhance a player’s game.  The site includes instructional and experiential content, outlining the five most important topics pertaining to a golf glove: equipment, grip, fit, durability and care.

    “All of the feel in your golf game comes through your hands. You must wear a glove with the best feel,” says professional golfer Adam Scott. “It is so important that I have a good feel through my glove, as my hands are connected to the club, which is doing all of the work.”

    FootJoy estimates that over 50% of players are wearing the wrong sized glove, often dismissing the glove’s importance as a piece of equipment and the improvement a glove can provide to an individual’s game.

    “The make and fit of a golf glove can affect a player’s swing more than most realize. At FootJoy we’re dedicated to making the best golf gloves in the world. The care we take in their creation reflects a long-held philosophy that the right glove can mean as much to your game as the right ball or right club,” says Maria Bonzagni, Senior Director of Marketing, FootJoy Gloves & Accessories, Acushnet Company. “The glove is not just an accessory but an essential part of every player’s game.”

    A proper fitting can improve a player’s performance and provide valuable insight to adjustments the player should make to their grip and hand positioning on the club. This information is readily accessible to consumers on golfgloveguide.com. From the make and fit of a glove to its care and durability, these items are essential to consider when purchasing a golf glove and utilizing the glove to improve one’s game.  

    “We need our hands so much in this game and we need to take care of them. I need a combination of protection and feel in my glove and I trust FootJoy gloves to provide both of these qualities,” says professional golfer Hunter Mahan.
