    Spring is here and golf's first major is upon us. Players have made the historic drive from Washington Road to Magnolia Lane and are ready to tee it up. And just as the best players in the world have prepared their games, FootJoy has prepared some slick styles especially for Augusta. The patterns may look familiar, but we've incorporated a special green that will let our FJ players feel right at home on arguably the most hallowed grounds in golf. While it's never a guarantee if or when they'll wear these in competition, keep an eye out for many FootJoy players sporting special green and white shoes during the year's first major. Check the names on the shoe tags to get an idea of who you might see wearing these beauties. We've also got some nice MyJoys (green and white, of course) making the trip to the Masters. Be sure to visit that slideshow on the blog as well.

    We wanted to give you a glimpse of some sweet MyJoys that made the trip to Augusta this year. Featuring the new DryJoys Tech and DryJoys Traditional styles, these beauties proudly display the green smooth #434 saddle color in honor of the season's first major and will surely stand out in the huge crowd that annually gathers among the pine trees and azaleas. Similar to the cool Classics we shipped down to Georgia, it's never guaranteed the players will wear these in competition, but click on the link or image below to find out which of your favorite players could be wearing these shoes at Augusta. And while you're here on the new blog getting in the mood for the Masters, be sure to check out the slideshow featuring custom Classics being made for Adam Scot, Ian Poulter and Camilo Villegas. If you like what you see, build your own custom shoes at MyJoys.com.

    Big Splash for Ochoa

    Lorena Ochoa fired a bogey-free final round 5-under 67 to earn her second career major title with a five-shot victory at the Kraft Nabisco Championship. Ochoa, who also won last year's RICOH Women's British Open, finished the week with an 11-under 277 total, and has now won two consecutive majors and three of her first four tournaments this year. Beginning the day with a slim one shot lead, Ochoa, sporting a pair of white, custom women's Classics, charged out of the gate with birdies on her first two holes at a difficult Mission Hills course. After a string of pars, she rattled off three more birdies on holes 8-10 to build what would prove to be an insurmountable five-shot lead. In addition to earning a traditional jump in the pond off the 18th green, Ochoa also earned $300,000 for her 20th victory, and the 26-year old is already just one point away from the performance criteria of the World Golf Hall of Fame. She could get that next week when the LPGA visits her home country of Mexico for the Corona Championship.
