Maiden victory for Chris Wood and FJ Sport Spikeless

January 28, 2013

Chris Wood secured his maiden European Tour victory and became the first ever tour player to win wearing the brand new FJ Sport Spikeless on Saturday at The Commercial Bank Qatar Masters.

An extension of the popular FJ Sport franchise, the FJ Sport Spikeless is designed to offer outstanding ‘Sports’ performance. The lightweight, flexible and athletically-styled hybrid shoe has a durable and spikeless outsole that can be worn equally well both on and off the course. After taking delivery of his new golf shoes at the Abu Dhabi HSBC Golf Championship, Wood was instantly impressed, saying,“I loved the look of the shoes as soon as I saw them, and the fit and comfort was unbelievable, straight out of the box, they are like a slipper.”

Hot on the heels of Wood in Doha was fellow FJ ambassador George Coetzee, who continued his sterling start to the 2013 European Tour season with another impressive performance. Wearing the FJ Sport shoe and the FJ StaSof glove as well as stylish FJ Apparel, the South African produced a superb final round of 64 containing an eagle and six birdies, to finish one shot behind the Englishman. This was Coetzee’s 21st Top 10 finish on the European Tour and a victory looks certain to be on the horizon.

In addition to Wood and Coetzee, 56% of the field in Qatar wore FootJoy shoes, compared to only 23% for the nearest competitor.

“We launched the innovative FJ Sport Spikeless shoe in October 2012 and we are thrilled that Chris has recorded the first tour win for this model in such epic fashion”, commented Russell Lawes, European Marketing Manager, FootJoy. “Chris was extremely pleased with the performance of the shoe, only a week after getting them out the box and I am sure more of our ambassadors will follow in his footsteps by putting this new spikeless offering in play”.
