    Arriving to a hero's welcome in his native country, Adam Scott received the key to the city of the Gold Coast following the  Wednesday Pro-Am.  It was Adam's first trip back to Australia since his Master's Triumph back in April.

    Following the round Scott stated, "I wanted to come home straight away after winning, but thought if I come home and start celebrating I might not make it back" 

    Once tournament play began, Scott would not disappoint his hometown crowd as he ran away with the Australian PGA Championship by four strokes.

    Late in the final round, Scott carried a one shot lead into the par 5 twelfth hole before play was halted due to local thunderstorms.  Upon returning to play, Scott launched a 266 yard four iron right at the stick, nearly holing it for albatross. The tap in eagle slammed the door on his competitors, and Scott cruised to the four shot win.

     "I came out and knew I had to do something great to win this," Scott said. "It's been an incredible year since April, and so great to come home. I've had a great week."

    The win also gives Adam Scott the last of the three Australian Majors.

    Scott wore a prototype FJ golf shoe and StaSof glove en route to his winning performance.

    Webb SImpson ran away to a six stroke win at the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open.  Through the first three rounds, Webb stood at a staggering 19 under par, 4 strokes clear of his closest pursuant and fellow FJ Staffer, Chesson Hadley. 

    Simpson showed little remorse at the start of the final round, birdieing two of the first three holes to increase his lead. Turning in 32 strokes, Simpson had the tournament well in hand.  On the back nine, Simpson added three more birdies and a lone bogey to take home the title in an absolute masterful performance.

    "As we were going kind of middle of the round, pins were tough, greens were drying out and I knew it would take a really special round for somebody to shoot 7, 8 under," Simpson said. "So, I felt like I was in control, and I asked my caddie, once I hit it on the green on 17 where we stood. And I was just thankful that I was able to kind of manage my golf ball the last couple rounds."

    Webb relied on the FJ ICON golf shoe and Pure Touch Limited glove during his dominating performance.

    Jimmy Walker took home the Frys.com Open with a final round 66 that left him two clear of the field.  

    Entering the day in a tie for fourth, thanks to a third round 9-under par 62, Walker needed a solid Sunday performance to have any shot at the title.  Walker came out of the gate making two birdies on the first four holes before turning in three under par 32.  On the back nine Walker added two more birdies to race to the top and take home the title. 

    The 54-hole leader, 23 year old Challenge Tour player Brooks Koepka had a fresh outlook on not protecting his the lead, "I just didn't make the shots I needed to win. Congrats to Jimmy on that. He played very well. But just try to learn from the whole experience. Any time you can put yourself in that kind of pressure, it's always good. It you take something from it, that's even better."

    The win comes In his eighth season and his 188th tournament.  It also earns Walker a spot in the 2014 Masters Tournament, "I felt like I was good enough to be in them, play in them," Walker said. "There's always this big pressure to get into Augusta, and I would press here, press there. You want to be playing in the big stuff. That's what I'm aspiring to do -- play against the world's best."

    Jimmy Walker chose FJ ICON and StaSof to capture the win.
