#1 Shoe in Golf, Again!
FootJoy is the #1 shoe for more players and more champions on the PGA Tour in 2006.
FootJoy accounted for over 65% of players on the 2006 PGA Tour. Players lacing up FJs in 2006 also amassed 20 PGA Tour victories. Both of these totals were more than any other golf shoe company.
The 2006 PGA Tour season was filled with exciting storylines. Wins by long time FootJoy wearers like David Toms (Sony Open) and Vijay Singh (Barclay’s Classic) were coupled with victories by young guns Adam Scott (The TOUR Championship), Luke Donald (Honda Classic), Brett Wetterich (EDS Byron Nelson Classic), and the long hitting JB Holmes (FBR Open). 2006 also saw the return to the winners' circle of fan favorites Davis Love (Chrysler Classic of Greensboro), Tim Herron (Bank of America Colonial), and Corey Pavin (US Bank Championship).
Great golf wasn't the only exciting story of the 2006 season. The year was also marked by the emergence of breakthrough golf shoe technology with the introduction of FootJoy ReelFit . ReelFit features Boa Technology, a system where traditional laces are replaced by stainless steel cables and a heel mounted reel. The resulting fit and performance of ReelFit was immediately embraced by many PGA Tour players when the product was introduced over the Labor Day weekend at the Deutsche Bank Championship.
