This week’s FJ Tour diary comes from Abu Dhabi for the Abu Dhabi HSBC Golf Championship.
The Abu Dhabi National course has been severely toughened for this year’s event. Tight fairways and ultra-thick rough mean if the players hit it off line; they will need a wedge to get it back in to play.
We have had plenty of early season action, with team FJ having a very busy and hectic start to the season, with players keen to get their hands (and feet!) on the new FJ products.
Our Spanish friend, Alejandro Canizares collected a pair of XPS-1 shoes this week. However after being fitted correctly, it was discovered that he is an even-keeler. This means Alejandro has different sized left and right feet. Lucky for Alejandro we have MyJoys which allows him to order his shoes in a different size for his left and right feet. We recommend that all golfers, professionals or amateurs, get correctly fit for shoes as statistics show the 80% of people wear incorrect sized shoes, reducing the comfort and performance of their shoes.
Joining Canizares in XPS-1 are Richard Green and Padraig Harrington. Plenty of positive comments relating to the shoes comfort, and especially the stability and support it provides. We know this shoe is the most stable golf shoe on the planet so the feedback is not a surprise, but still a pleasure to hear.
