FJ Diary - Ballentine's Championship
This week's Diary entry comes from the Ballantine's Championship in Korea.
Greetings from a bleak and windy Korea.
In stark contrast to the last two legs of the Asian Swing, the weather is drab, cold, wet and windy! It has certainly made the English contingent from Team FJ feel right at home!
Firstly congratulations to FJ Ambassador, Nicolas Colsaerts on his maiden European Tour victory. Nicolas finished with a record score of -24! Some going, I'm sure you'll agree? The big hitting Belgian trusted his FJ Icon and FJ StaSof glove during his winning campaign. Congratulations Nicolas from all here at Team FJ.
On to this week's event, and there is a fine field of players assembled to take on this tricky track. Lee Westwood re-instated himself as world number one with his victory in Indonesia, which finished on his birthday! Some present to yourself Lee, congratulations!
FJ Ambassador, Ian Poulter, has made the trip from the U.S.A to compete this week, as well as home grown talents such as Seung-Yul Noh, and Dae-Hyun Kim.
The course this week, is a very tricky, very tight track, that incorporates natural features, such as rock cliffs, into its lay out. The greens are very tricky, with plenty of undulations, and there are some real danger area's to be found off of the tee box. We hope our FJ Ambassadors do not stray to far from the beaten track, as there are plenty of 'Beware of the Snake' signs dotted around the course this week.
Young gun, Joel Sjoholm, took the chance to create a snazzy pair of MyJoys to match some of his outfits this season. Joel has ordered the following -
FJ Icon Shield Tip Base: White Smooth Saddle: Orange Smooth Accent: Orange Smooth Laces: White Wax
He shouldn't be to hard to spot now! The more experienced players, remembered to 'Layer Up' at this weeks event, with Aussies Brett Rumford, and Scott Strange wearing their FJ Base Layers. There where also plenty of FJ Windshirts and Rainshirts in play. Speaking of Outerwear, that reminds me, our Team FJ Ambassadors will be taking delivery of the latest FJ Rainwear this week, so keep your eye's peeled for these coming out to play as we head back to mainland Europe next week.
Lastly, a huge thank you to the Korean contingent of Team FJ, who pulled out all the stops for us this week. They kept the Ambassadors happy with equipment and us at Team FJ happy with Korean BBQ's! If you ever get the chance to sample one, make sure you take it!
That is all for this week's Diary, be sure to keep an eye out for the next instalment, coming from Barcelona, Spain.
