FootJoy 'layers up' for all weathers
August 19, 2010

FootJoyFootJoy's FJ ProDry Performance Base Layer and new FJ Layering System were developed for golf to 'Make Every Day Playable'. Using lightweight, thinner, stretchable, more breathable garments, they allow better regulatation of body temperature and adaptation to changing weather, while affording complete freedom of movement.

The launch of FootJoy's new FJ ProDry Performance Base Layer completes the three tier FJ Layering System. The garment features a golf-compression fit, which conforms to the body to stimulate blood flow, warmth and reduce fatigue, whilst ensuring total freedom of movement throughout the golf swing.

FootJoy's new FJ ProDry Performance Base Layer“The new FJ Layering System has been developed following feedback from golfers at all levels, extensive research and generations of product innovation,” said Richard Fryer, European Marketing Manager FootJoy. “Now, no matter what conditions you encounter on the golf course, you can comfortably and confidently adjust your layers for maximum performance.”

• The BASE LAYER (left) provides an initial layer of moisture management and comfort and is essential for regulating body temperature by moving perspiration away from the body to allow for a warm, dry core. Steve Stricker debuted this piece at the 2010 Open Championship at St. Andrews to help combat the cool, windy conditions.

• The MID LAYER adds versatility during changing weather conditions. This layer features the long-sleeve Performance Golf Shirt which offers an exclusive new ProDry fabrication to wick away moisture and provide excellent thermal protection.

• The OUTER LAYER has been FootJoy's signature layer for years, providing the ultimate protection from the elements. Outer layer options include garments within the Tour Collection, Performance range, as well as the fashion-forward FJ Sport line.

More than 100 Tour players are already taking advantage of FJ outerwear, relying on it in the most challenging conditions. "It's a challenge to stay warm and dry in changing weather conditions," said world number 4 Steve Stricker. "Layering with thin materials allows me to adapt during any weather without affecting my swing."

The FJ ProDry Performance Base Layer will be in shops from mid-October.
