FootJoy celebrates standout year on European Tour

Foot Joy

After another incredible season on the European Tour, FootJoy is proud to have again been confirmed as the overwhelming No.1 Shoe and Glove brand among the world’s best players.

With more shoes in play than all other brands combined (64.4%), and more than double the number of gloves used than the nearest competitor (40.5%), the performance of the products also helped to consistently product title-winning weekends.

More than a third of all wins throughout the season came from FJ ambassadors, including Justin Thomas’ first major victory, back-to-back wins for Tyrrell Hatton and Rafa Cabrera-Bello’s dramatic win at the Scottish Open.

In addition to these stellar performances, the 2017-2018 season saw some life-changing maiden victories for FJ players, with Matt Wallace, Jason Norris, Paul Dunne and Renato Paratore (below) all picking up their first European Tour titles.

The standout shoe of the year was the Pro/SL, designed to deliver unparalleled performance from a spikeless golf shoe. It quickly became a favourite amongst many of FJ’s ambassadors such as Lee Westwood and Adam Scott.

This on-course dominance translated into sales, with the model ending the season as the most sold within the UK. More than 10% of all shoes sold in 2017 to date has been a Pro/SL.

Of the season, Paul O’Hagan, FJ marketing manager, said: “It’s fantastic to see such strong representation for our brands on the European Tour. We know how influential our brand ambassadors are, and to be constantly seeing them atop leaderboards throughout the season is a tremendous achievement.”
