Hello FJ Community,
I just wanted to give you the heads up that the FJ Community, and in fact, all of the FootJoy sites will be down on Monday, December 17, 2012 for scheduled maintenance.
Expect the sites to be down starting at 6 AM Eastern time and to be offline for most of the day.
We'll look forward to catching up with you all again on Tuesday, December 18, 2012.
We are so excited about our upcoming Spring 2013 FJ Apparel line, that we want to give you, our FJ Community members, the very first sneak peak.
Hometown favorite and fifth ranked player in the world, Adam Scott shot a 5-under 67 to win the Australian Masters at Kingston Heath in Melbourne.
Starting the day one stroke back, Scott wasted little time birdieing the first to draw even with the 54 hole leader. Scott, in FJ Sport and StaSof, then added four more birdies on the front making the turn with a one stroke lead. On the back nine, Scott added eight straight pars before making birdie at the last to finish at 17 under par, four clear of his closest competitor. This is Scott's first win of the 2012 season.
Scott later stated of his win, "This has been a long time coming, This is pretty sweet to be in the gold jacket and hold this trophy that I've been admiring since I was a little kid."

Matteo Manassero holed a 12 foot putt for eagle on the third playoff hole to defeat fellow FJ staffer Louis Oosthuizen in the Barclay's Singapore Open.
Tropical storms on Friday forced the field to play most of their third round and all of the final round on Sunday. Matteo finished up his first 18 on Sunday with a bogey free 64 to race to the top of the leaderboard at 11-under par. Not to be outdone was former British Open Champion, Oosthuizen, who shot a third round 65 to keep pace with the Italian teenager.
Starting the final round with a two stroke lead, Manassero (FJ Sport and StaSof) rattled off two birdies in his first four holes to remain in control of the tournament. He then made 10 straight pars letting the South African back into the tournament, with Oostuizen (DryJoys Tour and SciFlex) drawing even on the 15th hole. Both players matched birdies on the final hole of regulation to finish at 13 under par.
Birdies were exchanged on the first playoff hole and pars on the next. Then Matteo closed out the tourney with a brilliant eagle for the victory.
Manassero stated post round, “The playoff was just a great honor to play with Louis - it’s been amazing, really. This year has been a tough year for me going through a few swing changes, but it has been amazing this week. I’m glad this came in such a great tournament."
This is Matteo's third win on the European Tour making him the first teenager ever to accomplish this feat.
