Greetings from Team FJ, at the home of golf, St Andrews. Last time we were here, FJ Ambassador Louis Oosthuizen claimed the Claret Jug in spectacular style. Bodes well for another FJ Ambassador to conquer the Scottish links and lift another piece of silverware.
A big congratulations to Team Europe, who came out on top in an amazingly close Ryder Cup in Wales. Many FJ wearers performed key roles for both teams, and it was a fantastic week despite the dreary weather.
With this week being a Pro-Am format, the course was buzzing with professionals and celebrities alike. The Titleist Tour Support Vehicle had a former British Wimbledon star, an ex England and Liverpool footballer and one of the greatest spin bowlers of all time, on board, all at the same time!!
There were plenty of shoes to pick up this week, and FJ Ambassador Danny Willett (pictured top right), was one of the players who needed to do so. Danny had a pair of the 52038 FJ ICON’s waiting to be collected. Danny loves the Traditional Saddle FJ ICON’s as they look 'Stylish'. The young Englishman will be looking to keep up his good form this year, and push into the top 20 of the Race to Dubai money list. Scotsman, David Drysdale also picked up 3 new pairs of FJ ICON to keep him looking smart for the remainder of the season, and Indian SSP Chowrasia, also had a pair of MyJoys DryJoys to pick up.
FJ Ambassador, Mikko Ilonen (Pictured right), nearly clinched the title here last year. An untimely meeting with the road at hole 17 ended Mikko's charge up the leader board, but still helped him on his quest to keep his card. Currently sitting at 72 on the Race to Dubai standings, Mikko will have no such worries this season. He is using a new FJ glove for 2011 this week, so hopefully that will help Mikko avoid the trouble on 17 this year!
Team FJ also launched another new product to the FJ Ambassadors in the field this week. The new FJ Base Layer is a new and innovative under garment that is designed specifically for golfers. The 'Golf Compression' base layer is designed to maintain body heat whilst wicking away the moisture from the body, providing thermal protection, an essential for this week! Keep your eyes peeled at this weeks event to see who’s wearing the new FJ Base layer.
With over 65% of the field choosing to wear FJ shoes, it is clear to see the number 1 shoe in golf is on top, at the home of golf.
