Just like in golf clubs across Europe, the word is spreading on the European Tour as to just how well the new DryJoys PODS shoe performs. After the rain in Beijing, a number of players were singing the praises of their FootJoy shoes and DryJoys in particular. Louis Oosthuizen heard enough comments during the weekend to persuade him to order two pairs to try in the coming weeks.
At the Open de Espana, Ignacio Garrido wore DryJoys for the first time in practice and then wore them every day en route to a thrilling finale in the playoff. Paul Waring was also wearing the new shoe and looks set to become a regular user. He particularly likes the sporty look of the DryJoys ‘Tech’ pattern combined with the FootJoy comfort and support. Jeev Milkha Singh has also decided to wear FootJoy’s newest shoe on an exclusive basis joining Ross McGowan and José-Filipe Lima as fully paid-up members of ‘Team DryJoys’.
Following a conversation about shoe fitting in China, Martin Kaymer dropped by at the Irish Open to express delight with his new size of FootJoy shoes. He has dropped a half size and one width (to C) in the Grant last and is testing a B width in the Laser last. He is enjoying the superior support from the snug fit.
David Griffiths has also benefited from a new size – solving serious foot problems he experienced last year. For him dropping to a B width has been the key enabling him to achieve better support across the forefoot.
The last word from the BMW PGA Championship. Gregory Havret who won at Loch Lomond last year came to Wentworth straight from Ireland and discovered that he’d not packed any dress shoes for the Gala Dinner. The only suitable pair in Gregory’s size belonged to FootJoy’s Tour Representative who kindly lent him a pair of Spikeless Classics for the evening.
