    Jimmy Walker held off his pursuants to take home the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am this weekend on a cold, wet, and windy day on the Monterey Peninsula.  

    Carrying a six stroke lead into the final round, Walker made it his tournament to win.  He proceeded to card a front nine one-under par 35 to keep the big lead.  On the back, Walker dropped a few shots but still got the job done by holing a par putt on the famous 18th at Pebble securing tory. 

    Walker relied on FJ Icon and StaSof during all four days of the inclement weather-plagued tournament.

    This is Walker's third victory of the still infantile 2014 PGA Season. The win also increases his lead in the season long 2014 Fedex Cup points race.

    On the European Tour, George Coetzee broke through in Johannesburg for his first Euro Tour victory.  Several shots out of the lead to start the final round, Coetzee pieced together a brilliant six-under par round of 66 to win by three in his home country of South Africa.  

    Coetzee trusted DryJoys Casual, StaSof, and FJ Performance Apparel en route to the ground breaking victory.  He is the first player on a major professional tour to win in the DryJoys Casual, the latest performance spikeless golf shoe from FJ.  

    Coetzee, who has recorded 24 top 25 finishes on the European tour, added post round, “I’ve been waiting a while and I started doubting, so I’m very happy...I got to share this with my family and my friends. It was my mum’s birthday yesterday and I wanted to do it for her as I forgot to buy her a present!”

    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.

    FEEL ADVANCED - FootJoy Introduces New D.N.A. Footwear Category

    - 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

    •  The 3D FoamCollar™ for COMFORT
      • The 3D FoamCollar molds to your ankle for ideal comfort, fit and support. Locking your ankle in place eliminates any movement of the foot – a situation that can lead to discomfort power-reduction during the swing.
    • SnugFit Tongue for FIT
      • The SnugFit tongue is engineered utilizing thin, soft, and breathable materials - including MicroVent™ technology- in order to properly conform to the top of your foot providing superb fit and an incredibly comfortable in-shoe environment.
    • NitroThin™ TPU Outsole for STABILITY
      • The all-new NitroThin TPU outsole has been in development for several years, undergoing numerous rounds of testing and technical modifications.  The result is a super thin-yet-strong chassis that frames the soft, FTF internal midsole, delivering the perfect combination of rigidity and flexibility for maximum on-course performance.
    • Xtra-Thick FTF™ FitBed® for Cushioning
      • In order to achieve the sleek, low-profile look of D.N.A. , the midsole was moved inside the shoe.  FTF™ (Fine-Tuned Foam), a new proprietary cushioning material, is used throughout the interior midsole also known as the FitBed. In order to achieve in-shoe stability as well as premium cushioning, two densities of FTF were utilized - a firmer density for stability around the perimeter of the FitBed and a softer density in the heel and forefoot providing industry-leading in-shoe comfort.
    • ChromoSkin™ Leather System by Pittards
      • Finally, D.N.A. DryJoys Next Advancement features the all-new ChromoSkin Leather System by Pittards® of England, one of the premiere suppliers of high performance leather in the world. This unique full grain leather system is supple, lightweight, thin-yet-durable and completely waterproof. By using this premium leather, the wearer will experience tremendous breathability and will find the upper will conform to their feet for an incredible custom fit.


    TOUR VALIDATION
    As 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."
