This Sunday at Torrey Pines, Scott Stallings shot a final round 68 to emerge victorious from a jam packed leaderboard.
Beginning the day three shots out of the lead on the coastal California course, Stallings birdied six of his last eleven holes to reach nine under par. This included a two putt birdie at the last hole to give him the lead. The only player who had an opportunity to catch Stallings was the Australian Marc Leishman. Needing eagle to tie, Leishman nearly holed his third shot on the par five last hole but had to settle for a tap in par and a T2 performance. Canadian, Graham Delaet also finished the tournament in a tie for second.
Stallings relied on the all new D.N.A. golf shoe and Pure Touch Limited golf glove during his final round. Leishman also relied on D.N.A. during his week in California.
This is Stallings third PGA Tour victory. The win also moves Stallings into the top 64 in the world, making him eligible for the WGC Accenture Match Play next month.

- The Most Feature-Laden Golf Shoe Ever from the #1 Shoe in Golf -
(Fairhaven, MA) - From FootJoy, the #1 Shoe in Golf, comes the next advancement in golf footwear - D.N.A. DryJoys Next Advancement. Featuring the most comprehensive feature package ever delivered by FJ, D.N.A. footwear embodies the most proven elements of the world-renown DryJoys franchise with new, cutting-edge componentry and construction methodology."To create the most feature-laden golf shoe in our storied history, we needed to explore the anatomy, or DNA, of our premium footwear products and then scrutinize every aspect throughout the design and development process," said Doug Robinson, Vice President of Design and Development Worldwide. "Every material and every component was carefully considered in order to deliver a shoe with lightweight stability, a precise fit, superior feel and ultimate performance."
KEY FEATURES AND BENEFITS
TOUR VALIDATIONAs with every FJ product, D.N.A. golf shoes have received validation at the highest level. Several players received the shoe at the Presidents Cup and immediately wore it in competition, including Adam Scott, Webb Simpson and Jordan Spieth. Adam Scott has worn D.N.A. golf shoes exclusively since September, including while competing at the 2013 Presidents Cup and during his three recent wins in Australia. "D.N.A. is the most technologically advanced shoe FJ has ever produced and it embodies everything I am looking for in a golf shoe," said the world's #2 ranked player. "They actually activate my feet, giving me great balance throughout my swing." Webb Simpson has also been wearing D.N.A. shoes since the Presidents Cup. "You want a golf shoe that is comfortable and stable, and this gives you both. The new technology in the tongue and heel collar allows the shoe to mold to your foot, giving the golfer everything they will need on the course."
Just a few short weeks ago, Jimmy Walker opened the 2014 Fedex Cup season with a victory at the Frys.com Open. This week at Waialae Country Club, he added a second victory in the new wraparound PGA Tour season with a win at the Sony Open.
Needing a big round to have any shot at the title, Walker fired a flawless, bogey free round of 63 to stay one shot clear of his playing competitors. His round included five back nine birdies that proved insurmountable to his chasers.
Walker relied on FJ Icon and StaSof en route to the win.
The win moves Walker to the top of the Fedex Cup leaderboard.

Steady veteran Zach Johnson opened his 2014 campaign with a victory at the Hyundai Tournament of Champions at Kapalua.
Starting the week with rounds of 66 and 67 placed Johnson atop the leaderboard at the halfway point of the tournament. He struggled to a 74 during the third round, falling out of the lead with only the final round to play.
With strokes to make up, Johnson birdied three holes on his outward nine. Adding four more birdies on the inward nine gave Johnson a one stroke lead. No one could match his 19 under par total, giving Johnson the win!
Johnson relied on DryJoys Tour and StaSof during his winning performance.
The is Johnson's 11th career PGA Tour Victory.

A key strand in FootJoy's DNA is comfort. It's important to us because it's important to every player and it's something we never compromise. However, that doesn't mean there isn't room to be innovative! So with this product, we took the midsole, which is the layer between the upper and the outsole that generally contains most of the cushion in a shoe, and relocated it to the FitBed®….hence the Xtra-thick FTF FitBed. We did not remove any cushion, or comfort, but actually enhanced it by moving it inside the shoe where you will feel it, and appreciate it, the most!
In addition, FTF™, or Fine Tuned Foam is a new material that has been used in the FitBed. Two densities of FTF were included - a firmer density to provide stability within the shoe and a softer density for comfort - with the end result being industry-leading in-shoe comfort.
Did You Know….FJ has been the most worn shoe on the PGA Tour since shoe counts were first taken in 1945?
