Zach Johnson emerged victorious from a three man FJ playoff in the 144th playing of the Open Championship!
Needing a birdie on the final hole of regulation to take the clubhouse lead at 15-under par, Johnson sank 20 plus foot putt and watched as his playing competitors tried to catch him. Louis Oosthuizen and Marc Leishman were able to do so and the three golfers headed to a four hole aggregate playoff to determine the champion.
On the first hole, Oosthuizen and Johnson carded birdies. Johnson poured in a second birdie putt on the following hole to take the lead over Oosthuizen and Leishman. On the treacherous road hole each player made bogey. Now on the 18th tee with a one stroke lead, Johnson hit the wide 18th fairway and pitched his ball safely beyond the pin. Johnson's birdie putt slid by the hole and he tapped in for par. Oosthuizen had a chance to tie, but his putt slid by giving Johnson the victory.
Each player in the playoff relied on a model from our DryJoys Lineup. Zach led the way in DryJoys Tour MyJoys, Louis in DryJoys Casual and Marc in D.N.A. Each player also relied on FJ golf gloves during their Open perfornance, Johnson and Lieshman in StaSof and Oosthizen in SciFlex Tour.
This is Johnson's second major victory.

Austrian, Bernd Wiesberger captured the Alstom Open de France with a final round 6-under par 65 to win by three strokes.
Opening the weather delayed final round three strokes off of the 54-hole lead, Wiesberger carded a front nine five under par 31 to seize control of the tournament. On the back, Wiesberger made eight consecutive pars and a birdie on the final hole to cap off the victory.
“It's been a great first half of the year for me so far...I've had a lot of great success but just couldn't pull it quite off. To stand here with the trophy right now, it's pretty sweet." said Weisberger following the victory.
Wiesberger relied on HYPERFLEX golf shoes and the SciFlex Tour golf glove en route to the victory.
This is Weisberger's third career European Tour victory.

FootJoy, the #1 Shoe in Golf, introduces a progressive new golf shoe for women, called emPOWER™. Designed with bold athletic styling, emPOWER provides a comfortable, eye-catching, lightweight spikeless footwear option that performs.
EmPOWER’s distinctive look begins with a BreathEasy™ sports mesh upper. The color-splashed upper delivers premium breathability, keeping the foot cool throughout the day, while still providing 2-year waterproof protection.
From a performance perspective, MaxGrip™ traction pods are integrated into the outsole and provide the additional traction to make confident swings throughout the round.
As with all women’s shoes in the FJ line, emPower was created specifically to deliver comfortable performance. Developed on the women’s Power Last, emPower offers a rounded, athletic toe character, generous fit across the forefoot with a slightly narrow heel. A new, soft underfoot foam provides EveryStep™ comfort and a massaging footbed ensures comfort throughout the round.
“When we speak with female players during our market research visits, the two most important shoe attributes they request are, almost unanimously, ‘comfort and style,’ said Mike Foley, Director or Footwear Marketing. “The emPOWER shoe was made to address those two attributes head on by combining aggressive, contemporary styling with innovative underfoot comfort features.”
The 115th playing of the U.S. Open Championship is shaping up to be one that will be remembered for all time. The course, Chambers Bay, is for the most part unknown by the players and caddies. Only a few players in this Open also competed at the 2010 U.S. Amateur.
In typical U.S. Open fashion, the 610-acre former sand and gravel quarry, should provide the world's best all they can handle as they traverse the dried out humps and bumps of Chambers Bay!
Here are a few of our favorite images from the practice rounds.
