Win-win again for FootJoy in South Africa and Hawaii
January 17, 2012

Two more wins for players wearing the FJ ICON shoe this weekend in South Africa and Hawaii continued FootJoy's 100% record at the start of the 2012 season.

Branden Grace claimed his maiden title at the Joburg Open, the second stop on the European Tour, in FJ ICON golf shoes, with an impressive 17 under par four round total.

On the PGA Tour, 32 year old Johnson Wagner emerged from a crowded leaderboard on the final day to win the Sony Open wearing FJ ICON shoes and the FJ SciFlex glove. Wagner's third PGA Tour victory earned him an invitation to the 2012 Masters and he also now leads the FedExCup standings.

On the European Tour this week, FootJoy dominated both the shoe and glove counts in Johannesburg, with 72% of the field, 152 of the 210 competitors sporting FootJoy golf shoes. The nearest competing brand had 19 players, only 9% of the field. In the glove category, 46% of the field wore FootJoy products, double the amount of the nearest competitor.

“It is encouraging to see our 100% record continue this week, and I have no doubts that this can carry on for some time. The glove and shoe counts are very impressive and we are extremely pleased that so many Tour players continue to choose the superiority of FootJoy products over competing brands to aid their performance.” commented Russell Lawes, European Marketing Manager, FootJoy.
