    Troy Merritt won the Quicken Loans National thanks to a final round four under par 67.  Merritt's 18-under par total was three strokes clear of the field.  This is Merritt's first PGA Tour victory. 

    Merritt relied on FJ Icon Black golf shoes and the new SciFlex Tour golf glove. 

    "It was really nice coming down that final fairway with a two-shot lead," said Merritt post round. "Not feeling very much stress, just trying to make as good of a golf swing as I could and, as you saw, it was nice to have only one putt.

    Zach Johnson Wins a Showdown at the Open Championship!

    Zach Johnson emerged victorious from a three man FJ playoff in the 144th playing of the Open Championship! 

    Needing a birdie on the final hole of regulation to take the clubhouse lead at 15-under par, Johnson sank 20 plus foot putt and watched as his playing competitors tried to catch him.  Louis Oosthuizen and Marc Leishman were able to do so and the three golfers headed to a four hole aggregate playoff to determine the champion.  

    On the first hole, Oosthuizen and Johnson carded birdies.  Johnson poured in a second birdie putt on the following hole to take the lead over Oosthuizen and Leishman.  On the treacherous road hole each player made bogey.  Now on the 18th tee with a one stroke lead, Johnson hit the wide 18th fairway and pitched his ball safely beyond the pin.  Johnson's birdie putt slid by the hole and he tapped in for par.  Oosthuizen had a chance to tie, but his putt slid by giving Johnson the victory. 

    Each player in the playoff relied on a model from our DryJoys Lineup.  Zach led the way in DryJoys Tour MyJoys, Louis in DryJoys Casual and Marc in D.N.A.  Each player also relied on FJ golf gloves during their Open perfornance, Johnson and Lieshman in StaSof and Oosthizen in SciFlex Tour

    This is Johnson's second major victory.
