    WHEN THE AMBASSADORS WERE AT THE HEADQUARTERS IN FAIRHAVEN, I HAD THE OPPORTUNITY TO TALK WITH SUZANNE REGO ABOUT HAVING GLOVES MADE FOR MY FRIEND GREG WHO WAS BORN WITH A DEFORMED LEFT HAND.  GREG PALYS RIGHT HANDED AND IS ABOUT A 14 HANDICAPPER DESPITE HIS HAND.  SEE PIC

    HE HAS NEVER BEEN ABLE TO WEAR A GLOVE ON THAT HAND AND AS A RESULT THE CLUB MOVES A LOT IN HIS GRIP AND ESPECIALLY WHEN IT IS HOT AND HIS HAND SWEATS, OR WHEN IT IS RAINY OR WET.

    OVERTHE PAST FEW MONTHS, SUZANNE WORKED WITH ME AND GREG TO PRODUCE A GLOVE THAT WOULD WORK FOR GREG.  SUZANNE SUGGESTED WE USE THE SAME MATERIAL AS IN THE SCI FLEX ALL THROUGH THE GLOVE.......A GREAT SELECTION   AFTER A FEW SAMPLE GLOVES WERE TRIED ON AND MODIFIED, SHE CAME UP WITH THE PERFECT GLOVE FOR GREG (SEE PICS)

    GREG NOW HAS A DOZEN WONDERFUL FOOTJOY GLOVES WHICH WILL MAKE HIS GOLFING BETTER AND MORE ENJOYABLE

    THANK YOU SUZANNE AND ALL WHO WERE INVOLVED IN MAKING THIS POSSIBLE FOR GREG

    FOOTJOY ONCE AGAIN SHOWS WHY THEY ARE THE FINEST IN THE INDUSTRY!!!!!

    Congrats to Greg and I am sure it will only improve his game.  What a great thing to do for a friend.  Truly a compasionate friend and golf lover.  This only exihibits what one friend on a course is willing to do for another, let alone have a TOP rated company make a special product for such a deserving individual.

    Great Spotlight and thank you very much for sharing!

    By the way, I hope his two beautiful daughters will caddy for Dad in the near future if they are not already doing so.  They will never get that time back and will always have fond memories with their Dad.

    At least I hope my son will remember these times.

    Thanks again for sharing.

    Isn't it wonderful to have a company that believes in its brand, supports its brand, and then markets it brand to all.  This is a wonderful story that you don't see everyday.  Congrats to FJ..... Play well Greg..
