At the 137th Open Championship at Royal Birkdale, FootJoy continued its reign as the #1 Shoe worn by players in The Open with an impressive total of 91 players, including seven of the top ten and ties! This represents almost 60% of the entire field and was triple that of the next competitor.
Not only that, but they also lead the way in the glove department with their StaSof® and SciFlex™ gloves leading the charge, plus the RainGrip® model proving a popular choice amongst many of the players as the shocking weather hit early in the tournament.
“Protection against the dramatic weather was of paramount importance this week so it is very pleasing to see the vast majority putting their trust in FootJoy to perform in these trying conditions. Naturally, we are delighted that FootJoy is the #1 Shoe once again, but to also be the #1 Glove, as well as seeing the number of players sporting garments from our Outerwear Collection is equally as satisfying,” commented Richard Fryer, FootJoy’s European Marketing Manager.
As there are a growing number of fantastic quality shoes and gloves on the market, it makes it all the more impressive that Footjoy continue to be a dominant force on Tour, especially in the biggest and best tournament of all!
