2009 Open Championship - FJ ICON sighting

  •  

    Chris has already posted some great slideshows from the Open Championship on the FootJoy Blog, but just today we saw Nick Watney lace up a pair of FJ ICON for the first time in competition.  He is wearing style 52070.

    I'm sold on this style.  Cool looking shoe...nice threads too.

    Good to see Nick getting some press.  Then again I may be a little biased, he went to college where I live.  Also good to see FJ coming out with a shoe that isn't a basic saddle.  Different is good, in my opinion.

    I love this style.  These are the shoes I have been eyeing since the Icons were released.  I am going to go with these with the green stripe.  Something like this...

    Same style Rory was wearing in the other post.

    Do the pros have any favorite as far as style goes?  I've seen a couple different but I didn't know if there was a majority favoring a specific style?

    I looks like the 52070 seems to be the popular style on the tour.  I am noticing most of the Icons I am seeing are this style.  I will be kewl to see if the pros change the color of the stripe when the MyJoys program goes underway.

    I agree, it does seem like the popular choice on tour.  I wonder if it is just because that's the model FJ decided to release for the early testing or if it's actually preferred.

    I think the sport icon's would look cool with all black and a white stripe
