(Fairhaven, MA) - FootJoy, the #1 shoe and glove in golf, congratulates FJ ambassador Rory McIlroy for capturing the 2012 PGA Championship in record breaking fashion.
Rory fired weekend rounds of 67-66, including a bogey-free stretch of 23 holes to close, en route to a record eight-stroke margin of victory. He also captured the 2011 U.S Open by the same margin.
McIlroy chooses FJ Sport golf shoes for the ultimate combination of lightweight performance, Tour-caliber stability and athletic-inspired styling. He also wears the Pure Touch® Limited glove designed for players who demand the finest in materials, fit and feel.
"FJ Sport just gives me more stability, especially in the middle of my foot," said McIlroy. "I like the style, I like the athletic look and they're just so comfortable. Ever since I put a pair on, I've never looked for anything else. "
Players in FJ shoes have now won 64% of the tournaments on the 2012 PGA Tour, including a sweep of all four major championships. Players who trust FJ gloves have captured 16 wins on Tour this year.
