    Former University of Georgia product, Brendon Todd cruised to a two shot victory at the HP Byron Nelson Championship.  Todd's final round was blemish free, not making a single bogey to four birdies for a four-under par round of 66.  

    Beginning his day in a tie for the lead, Todd made birdies at 2, 5, 9 and 10 to race to 14-under par on the week.  Todd made several crafty par saves on his way to the clubhouse including a left handed, back of the wedge shot on the par-3 13th that set up perhaps the best up and down of the week.  None of his chasers could catch him giving Todd his first PGA Tour win in 77 starts. 

    Todd relied on DryJoys Tour golf shoes and the Pure Touch Limited golf glove throughout his winning performance. 

    The win gives Todd a two year exemption on the PGA Tour as well as an invite to the 2015 Masters.

    Stacy Lewis won the North Texas LPGA Shootout Presented by JTBC with a four round total of 16 under par, 6 clear of her nearest competitor.

    Starting the day in a tie for the lead, Lewis shot a blazing 64 to runaway from the field.

    Lewis stated of her stellar performance post round, "I kind of have these mini goals in the back of my mind, like a bogey free tournament or a certain number of putts, just kind of things that aren’t necessarily score related.  So one of them was kind of taking a tournament and running away with it, and that’s what I’ve wanted to do it now for a year.  So to be so close the last few weeks and then to come out and shoot 64, I mean I don’t even know what to say.  It’s what I’ve always wanted to do, and just to do it here at home, in front of all these fans was pretty cool.”

    This is Stacy's 9th career win and first of the 2014 season. 

    She relied on DryJoys Boa golf shoes and the StaSof golf glove.

    Lee Westwood rolled to a seven shot victory in the Maybank Malaysian Open. 

    Beginning the day with a one stroke advantage, Westwood quickly increased his lead to four strokes before a thunderstorm delayed play for over four hours.  Westwood returned to the course and promptly birdied the 13th hole to increase his lead to six shots.  Parring the next four holes, the Englishman closed out the tournament in style by rolling in a 15 foot birdie putt on the final hole of regulation to win by seven.

    “It’s a golf course that suits my game; it’s very tight in certain areas. I played well, I putted well, and the short game is good." Westwood stated post round.

    Westwood relied on our performance spikeless model, the DryJoys Casual golf shoe and the StaSof golf glove en route to victory. 

    This is Lee's 40th career world worldwide win.

    • The #1 Glove in Golf unveils the FJ StaCool™ featuring grip enhancing “super fiber” NanoFront™ technology
    • A unique partnership between FJ & Teijin Ltd  takes golf glove grip performance to new found levels 
    • State-of-the-art technology founded on the FJ strategic and Teijin Ltd alliance provides unparalleled grip in hot and humid conditions.

     FootJoy®, the #1 Glove in Golf®, has introduced ground breaking fabric technology to its latest golf glove category, the innovative StaCool™ glove. Part of the highly anticipated FJ 2014 product lineup, the StaCool glove has been specifically designed to counter the challenges of playing in hot and humid conditions. The new glove, inspired by the FJ brand’s unwavering commitment to enhancing performance, regardless of the weather, includes state-of-the-art proprietary NanoFront™ fiber technology. The advancement comes courtesy of renowned Japanese fabric innovators Teijin, who have worked with the FJ design engineers on combining the industry revered design, fit, feel and performance synonymous with FJ into a reassuringly strong gripping golf glove. Using what many experts are referring to as the first ‘Super Fiber,’ the StaCool powerful grip stems from an island of Nano-fiber surfaces that is able to increase friction, resulting in a more comprehensive grip.

    “The Men’s StaCool glove showcases our latest advancement in delivering a product aimed at golfers who frequently play in humid conditions and suffer from the negative grip impacts such conditions can have,” commented Maria Bonzagni, Senior Director of Marketing, FJ Gloves and Accessories.  “As we have seen previously with product lines such as RainGrip® & WinterSof® we pride ourselves on identifying real issues golfers face that impact performance. It is our approach, expertise and commitment to presenting solutions is the heart of FJ ethos and these facets are represented perfectly in StaCool glove.”

    In addition, the all-new StaCool glove enhances absorption, and increases slip resistance as well as maximizing total performance. In humid conditions, perspiration can present real difficulties in executing the desired swing via poor grip or movement of the club. This is where StaCool glove comes in to its own by combating the climactic challenges to give golfers a far better chance of producing better shots, despite the weather.  

    “Perspiration in humid conditions can dramatically affect the ability to grip the club,” added Bonzagni. “The excellent absorption and diffusion of moisture characteristics manage perspiration and reduce any negative impact on grip. StaCool breathability adds to the gloves ability to deflect the reduction in grip perspiration can have.”

    Designed to perfectly maximize grip and durability, this performance-infused glove has been precision engineered and constructed from the very best materials to deliver an optimum benefit to the golfer. The StaCool glove characteristics are classically FJ, uncompromising on look, comfort and feel; high-performance FiberSof™ material and NanoLock™ Fiber on the back of the hand sets new standards in a more breathable and comfortable, consistent fit. A new hotmelt process has also been strategically positioned across the knuckles for a more tailored fit and additional comfort.

    With over half of the world’s golfers choosing from the FJ brand’s diverse range of golf gloves, it comes as no surprise that FJ is once again behind the latest advancement in golf glove technology.   Whether it’s the #1 Cabretta leather glove in golf, StaSof®, the outstanding feel and performance offered by the Pure Touch® Limited, the science of comfort in SciFlex™, the maximum durability of the GTxtreme™, the long-lasting properties of the WeatherSof®, or the advanced wet and cool weather capabilities of the RainGrip® and WinterSof® microbrand gloves,  FJ remains the overwhelming favorite for golfers of all abilities around the world.

    Matt Jones Closes Out the Shell Houston Open in Dramatic Fashion

    Matt Jones began Sunday's dreary final round in the Shell Houston Open six shots back of the leader and needed nothing short of a heroic round to have any shot at the title.  Opening his final round with a bogey, the 33 year old Australian, Jones made four birdies on his front nine making the turn in three under par 33. 

    Still chasing the lead the entire back nine Jones birdies three of the first seven holes on the back nine to get within one of the lead. Jones made an untimely bogey at the 17th that would seem to seal his fate.  Jones would not let the bogey become his undoing and proceeded to roll in a forty foot plus birdie putt on the 72nd hole of regulation to get within one of the leader back on the tee. 

    As luck would have it, a bogey from the leader led to a playoff. The players headed back to the 18th tee.

    Jones' approach into the first playoff hole came up well short of the green leaving himself a 42 yard pitch shot to the hole.   Stepping into the shot, Jones hit a low runner that tracked right at the hole and fell to the bottom of the cup for birdie.  Jones' playing competitor couldn't match the birdie giving Jones the victory!

    "I walked up there and told my caddy I was going to chip it in," Jones said. " You don't know if it's going to lip out, low or high, but when I saw it disappear it's probably the happiest I've been on the golf course."

    The win earns Jones the last invitation to next week's Masters Tournament.

    Jones relied on FJ Icon and SciFlex during Sunday's rainy final round.
