    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.

    David Lingmerth won the Memorial Tournament presented by Nationwide with a par on the third sudden death playoff hole.  

    Entering the final round three strokes behind the 54-hole lead, Lingmerth shot a final round three under par 69 to enter a two man playoff.  Both players split with pars on the first two playoff holes.  On the third and final playoff hole Lingmerth split the fairway with his tee shot and his approach shot came to rest 30 feet behind the pin.  A routine two putt sealed the victory.

    Lingmerth relied on FJ ICON MyJoys golf shoes and the SciFlex Tour golf glove en route to the win.  

    This is Lingmerth's first PGA Tour victory.
