FootJoy®, the #1 outerwear brand in golf, announces the launch of the all-new DryJoys Tour L.T.S. The LTS features a completely new construction and fabric to reduce weight and improve mobility while still remaining 100% waterproof in all playing conditions.
L.T.S. stands for lightweight construction, temperature regulation and stretch fabrication.
Where other jackets can have as many as 24 panels and 27 or more seams, the new LTS jacket has only five panels and six seams. Fewer panels and seams reduces weight and bulk while improving mobility and eliminating places for water to gather.
Partnering with ThermoLite® to create a specially developed ThermoLite bonded liner using hollow core fibers made this possible. When conditions are cool, the hollow core fibers trap body heat inside the core and when conditions are warm, the fibers wick moisture and expel heat for optimum temperature regulation.
FJ focuses solely on the game of golf so in selecting a fabric for a new rain jacket required a material that was soft, quiet, flexible and waterproof. Most notably, with the golf swing in mind, FJ has developed a 3-Layer Bonded Fabric, which boasts soft, comfortable and quiet attributes, as well as excellent 4-way stretch that moves with your through the golf swing.
The new Tour LTS jacket has been validated on Tour by some of the top players in the world, including Jimmy Walker, and further tested in the harshest conditions of a remote golf destination where players were challenged with cold, windy and wet weather. “It gives me full range of motion and it's completely waterproof. Just what I want” said Jimmy Walker.
PJ Skurla, Senior Apparel Designer here at FootJoy stated, “We really challenged ourselves with LTS. We wanted to see just how few panels and how few seams we could incorporate into the jacket to create less restriction and increase mobility. By reducing the amount of seams and panels, it really took a lot of the bulk out of the jacket.”
Some additional features of the jacket include:

Former Oklahoma State standout and US Amateur Champion, Peter Uihlein shot a final round of 68 to capture his first professional career victory at the Madeira Islands Open in Santo Da Serra, Portugal. Beginning the day one stroke behind leader Mark Tullo, Ulhlein opened with a bogey falling further behind. However, Uihlein fought back to even par for the front nine and continued to make four birdies in his final eight holes to reach 15 under par. The total gave him a two stroke victory over fellow FJ Staffers, Morten Orum Madsen and Mark Tullo.
Uihlein was ready for any conditions the seaside golf course could conjure in full line FJ Performance Apparel, DryJoys Tour golf shoes and the StaSof golf glove.
Uihlein stated post round, "To do it playing well on the back nine coming down the stretch is sweet. ... I just knuckled down, I guess. It was all putting that did it today; I was just trying to free up and they started to roll in, so it was nice."
Peter also spoke of his decision to join the European Tour instead of testing his game on the American circuit, "You grow up quick out here and that was the main reason I came over...It's been a good process so far and hopefully I can keep going."
This is Peter's third top ten in seven European Tour starts this season. The win also gives Uihlein European Tour Status through the 2014 season.
