Webb Simpson Chooses FJ in Capturing First Major Championship
Fairhaven, MA - FootJoy, the #1 shoe and glove in golf, congratulates Webb Simpson for earning his first major championship title at the 112th U.S. Open.
Webb's focus and determination enabled him to erase a six shot final round deficit through five holes as he birdied four of his next five en route to a second consecutive 2-under 68 and a one shot victory. It is his first major championship title to complement his two wins last year at the Wyndham Championship and Deutsche Bank Championship.
When challenged with golf's most difficult conditions, Webb is one of many Tour players who choose FJ ICONTM golf shoes for the ultimate combination of Tour-caliber performance, unsurpassed comfort and timeless style.
In fact, just this year alone on the PGA Tour, FJ players have won 16 of the first 26 tournaments - 10 of those were wearing FJ ICON: Johnson Wagner (Sony Open), Mark Wilson (Humana Challenge), Kyle Stanley (Waste Management Phoenix Open), Bill Haas (Northern Trust Open), John Huh (Mayakoba Golf Classic), Hunter Mahan (WGC - Accenture Match Play Championship; Shell Houston Open), Luke Donald (Transitions Championship) and Bubba Watson (The Masters).
Webb also opts for the Pure Touch® Limited glove. Featuring exclusive leather specifications, a more tailored, conforming fit and discriminating leather preparation techniques, Pure Touch is designed for better players who demand the finest in materials, fit and feel.
Once again, FJ was the shoe and glove of choice at the 112th U.S. Open as 63% of the field relied upon the comfort and performance of FootJoy shoes. Year to date, 61% of all players have chosen FJ shoes and 41% FJ gloves on the PGA Tour.
