    Steady veteran Zach Johnson opened his 2014 campaign with a victory at the Hyundai Tournament of Champions at Kapalua.

    Starting the week with rounds of 66 and 67 placed Johnson atop the leaderboard at the halfway point of the tournament.  He struggled to a 74 during the third round, falling out of the lead with only the final round to play.

    With strokes to make up, Johnson birdied three holes on his outward nine.  Adding four more birdies on the inward nine gave Johnson a one stroke lead.  No one could match his 19 under par total, giving Johnson the win!

    Johnson relied on DryJoys Tour and StaSof during his winning performance.

    The is Johnson's 11th career PGA Tour Victory.

    Feel Advanced - Xtra-thick FTF FitBed

    A key strand in FootJoy's DNA is comfort. It's important to us because it's important to every player and it's something we never compromise. However, that doesn't mean there isn't room to be innovative! So with this product, we took the midsole, which is the layer between the upper and the outsole that generally contains most of the cushion in a shoe, and relocated it to the FitBed®….hence the Xtra-thick FTF FitBed. We did not remove any cushion, or comfort, but actually enhanced it by moving it inside the shoe where you will feel it, and appreciate it, the most!

    In addition, FTF™, or Fine Tuned Foam is a new material that has been used in the FitBed. Two densities of FTF were included - a firmer density to provide stability within the shoe and a softer density for comfort - with the end result being industry-leading in-shoe comfort.

    Did You Know….FJ has been the most worn shoe on the PGA Tour since shoe counts were first taken in 1945?

    NitroThin™ TPU outsole

    The new NitroThin™ TPU (thermoplastic urethane) outsole for this new shoe has been in development for several years to ensure ample time for experimenting with new materials, new methods of constructing the outsole and configuring traction elements and also rigorous testing of each component and the finished product. The result is a thinner outsole that delivers lightweight stability and performance as well as flexibility and feel.

    Did You Know…about 60% of people have different sized feet? For about 80% of these people, their bigger foot is their left foot. The difference in sizes is small enough that it doesn't require two different sized shoes.

    SnugFit tongue

    You may consider it a stretch to think about the tongue of a shoe as an important component that delivers actual benefits. However, think back to shoes you've had where the tongue would wander off to the side or was too thick or too thin and caused discomfort on the top of your foot. With over 150 years of shoe making experience, we have learned that every component, every material and every stitch in making a golf shoe is critical to the overall comfort and performance.

    The SnugFit tongue does what a tongue is supposed to do, and maybe a little bit more. It is designed with various materials and densities to conform to the top of your foot and provide better fit, comfort and protection. It also includes MicroVent™ technology for enhanced breathability.

    Did You Know…you should have a thumbs width between the top two eyelets of a laced golf shoe? More than a thumbs width, the shoe is likely too small/narrow; Less than a thumbs width, the shoe is likely too big/wide.
