  • FJ Performance Outerwear Week on the PGA Tour

    Add Comment

    The FJ team is back on the road next week at the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro Am.   For the last several years, we have been on-site for our annual FJ Performance Outerwear drop.  More than virtually any other venue on the PGA Tour, Pebble Beach tests FJ's motto of "Make Every Day Playable".  Considered one of the most beautiful places on the planet, the Monterey Peninsula is also know for its extremely unpredictable early season weather.  Chances are good that the players picking up the latest FJ outerwear before the event will likely have the chance to use it the very same week.  

    As usual, we will be talking to players and capturing snapshots from inside the ropes, so stayed tuned next week on the FJ Blog for the latest from FJ Outerwear Week.

    In the meantime, don't forget about FJ Outerwear as essential performance equipment for your own game.  Whether wet, wind, cool or warm, FJ has you covered.  Check out the latest in FJ Performance Outerwear for men and women.

    With the Race To Dubai really heating up, the two highest placed FootJoy shoe wearers, Rory McIlroy and Ross Fisher, positions 3 & 4 respectively, are sitting out the French Open this week in preparation for the Open Championship at Turnberry in two weeks time. This will open the door to the other 10 FootJoy shoe wearers currently in the Race To Dubai top 20 to catch up to them.

    Last year's winner, Pablo Larrazabal is really looking forward to defending the title he won last year. It is turning into a very special week for the Larrazabal family, as Pablo's brother, Alex, has joined him in the French Open field after qualifying for the tournament last week. This is exactly what Pablo did last year before storming to an emphatic victory over the Golf National course to claim his first European Tour title and helped him to become the Sir Henry Cotton, Rookie of the Year. Can lightning strike twice!?

    Another player who loves this tournament is FootJoy wearer Soren Hansen, he finished in third place last year. He was in fine form this week and looking to improve on last years finish.

    The big story of the week has been the launch of the FJ ICON shoes to the European Tour. Players came to visit the Titleist Tour Support Vehicle to collect their new shoes, and only positive responses were heard. The majority of comments included how light the shoes felt and how comfortable they were. Be sure to keep your eyes peeled for these on the players this week and the next few weeks. More styles will be released to the players at The Open Championship.

    One player already wearing the FJ ICON shoe is Ian Poulter. It was good to see him again in Europe after a long spell across the Pond on the USPGA Tour. Ian will certainly fancy his chances this week as he has been showing some great form and can't be too far away from a win. He is joined in the field by Angel Cabrera, who will be looking to add to his Masters crown earlier in the season and SYNR-G and FootJoy PureTouch wearer, Padraig Harrington.
