The importance of playing off the ‘right’ tees

After watching Bryson bash his way to US Open glory, it's hard not to feel inadequate when your pitching wedge only goes 80 yards... but maybe you're playing off the wrong tees for your ability?

ANA Inspiration, The Blue Wall, and a lesson for the PGA Tour

There’s nothing worse than burying your head in the sand and pretending everything is rosy, but it's a tactic that the PGA Tour has been deploying unapologetically for years

High science or a load of balls?

To find the ultimate ball for you, a ‘fitting’ under PGA Pro/Trackman supervision is wise. After all, if there's advantage to be had, why not take it?

Following on from the 2018 launch of Tour S, Footjoy have unveiled the 2020 upgrade to the most stable shoe in golf. Tour X is designed to suit golfers who seek maximum stability throughout their swing.

With Tour X, FootJoy has brought together the best characteristics of three of its most acclaimed models, Tour-S, DNA and Fury and amplifies them with the latest performance technologies and materials to achieve the most feature-rich performance shoe in FJ’s history.

From DNA it features the ChromoSkin Soft Leather and 3D Foam Collar & Tongue. From TOUR-S the PowerPlate Outsole and Integrated PowerStrap and from last years FURY the Ortholite Impressions fit bed.

Richard Fryer, Director of Footwear Product Management, said: “Feedback from tour and consumers told us that they loved the unmatched stability from the PowerPlate outsole and PowerStrap of Tour-S but craved soft supple leather they experienced in DNA and the underfoot comfort in Fury. So, we combined all three and turbo-charged it with the latest technology to create the ultimate hybrid performance shoe. And Tour X was born.”
