Once again FootJoy was proven to be #1 Shoe and Glove in Golf.
FootJoy ambassador Steve Stricker birdied four of his last five holes to finish at 69 (-2) and capture The Barclays by two shots over his nearest competitor. It marked the fourth career PGA Tour victory for Stricker, who finished at 268 (-16). Stricker, who trailed by one shot with three holes remaining, also vaulted to the top of the FedEx Cup standings entering the final three events in the Playoffs. Stricker was T4 in greens in regulation and T8 in driving accuracy at The Barclays. The win was the first for Stricker in over six years.
FootJoy was the overwhelming golf shoe of choice at The Barclays with over 66% of players lacing up an FJ in pursuit of the $10 million first prize.
Earlier that day our rising European star Ross Fisher took glory at the KLM Dutch Open, finishing coolly under pressure from a local favourite to birdie the final hole and take his maiden European Tour title by a single shot, closing with a classy 3 under par 67. Fisher continues his rich vein of form in 2007 having been co-leader of the European Tour's flagship event, the BMW Championship at his home course of Wentworth going into the final round earleir in the season.
Over 60% of those that teed it up in the Netherlands chose FootJoy, with the nearest competitor just clearing 20%, underlining FootJoy's position as #1 Shoe in Golf.
