FootJoy players are a perfect four-for-four to start the season as Ben Crane (DryJoys style #53711, SciFlex glove) rode a red-hot putter to win the Farmers Insurance Open at Torrey Pines. Crane made two birdie putts over 45 feet then tapped in a 30-inch putt for par on the 18th hole for a 2-under 70 and a one-shot victory over fellow FJ players Michael Sim (FJ ICON style #52070, SciFlex glove) and Marc Leishman (FJ ICON style #52070). It was Crane’s third career victory, and first in nearly five years, and this one earned him a trip back to the Masters.

Starting the final round two shots behind, Crane opened with three birdies in five holes, including one from just over 45 feet on No. 3. He expanded his lead to three shots with another 45-foot birdie putt on the 11th.

Sim, the 25-year-old Australian who earned his Tour card following three victories last year on the Nationwide Tour, kept with Crane the entire round and had his chances to the very end. After missing his birdie chance on 18, Crane tapped in his par for the win and a 13-under 275 total that earns him a trip back to Augusta National for the first time in three years.

  • The streak rolls on!  Congrats (and thanks) to Ben.

  • If this was NASCAR, FJ would be out to a commanding lead in the "Manufacturers" category!

    I found it very cool that the entire last group was all Titleist?FJ staffers.

  • You can't help but to be happy when great guy like Ben Crane wins a golf tournament and gets to go to Augusta!!

  • Without any argument if you want to win you have to be in FJ'S.

    Sim looks like the real thing.

  • Congrats Ben.  Good Job.

  • It is really nice to see how FJ is gaining ground with all the players. Ben did a really nice job of holding onto his lead and deserves a big congratulation from me.
