FootJoy, the number one shoe and glove in golf, celebrated three global victories over the weekend as Henrik Stenson, Luke Donald and Adam Scott triumphed wearing FootJoy in their respective tournaments

FJ Icon

FootJoy, the number one shoe and glove in golf, enjoyed a fine weekend as three brand ambassadors won in three different continents across the world.

Swede Henrik Stenson secured his first European Tour title for five years at the South African Open Championship, Luke Donald won his third title of the season at the Dunlop Phoenix Open and Adam Scott prevailed the Australian Masters in his homeland.

Stenson, who needed a good week to quality for the season-ending DP World Tour Championship in Dubai, made a string of clutch birdies down the stretch in his FJ Icons to hold off fellow FJ loyalist George Coetzee.

Relying on the comfort, fit and styling of the FJ Icon, Stenson won his first event since the WGC-Accenture Matchplay in 2007 to move up to 71st in the Official World Golf Ranking.

Also sporting his customary FJ Icons, Luke Donald stormed to a five-shot victory over Hideki Matsuyama at the Phoenix Country Club, with Rory McIlroy now the only player above Donald in the world rankings.

In Australia, Adam Scott returned to the world's top five with a fine victory at Kingston Heath Golf Club in Melbourne.

Trusting the superior comfort of his FJ Sport shoes and the unparalleled grip and performance of the StaSof glove, Scott carded a final-round 67 to finish four in front of Ryder Cup hero and defending champion Ian Poulter.

The three FootJoy victories were also complemented by more positive news from the UBS Hong Kong Open. At Fanling, 61% of the field wore FootJoy shoes, compared to the nearest competitor's 17%.

Whether it's the all-round excellence of FJ Icon or the consistently high performance of all other models, FootJoy remains the overwhelming favourite for golfers of all abilities around the world.
