Webb Nets Maiden Victory

2011-08-22

Already a two time runner up this year, North Carolina native Webb Simpson (FJ ICON #52013) shot a bogey-free 67 to win the Wyndham Championship.

Simpson's 64 on Saturday, which included a back nine 29, catapulted him ahead of the crowded leaderboard by two strokes heading into Sunday.  His final round began with par on each of the first eight holes before making a birdie on the par-4 ninth. Simpson continued his steady play on to the back nine with consecutive birdies on 14 and 15 to extend the lead to three.  With an easy two putt par on the 72nd hole, Simpson earned his first PGA Tour victory and moved to 3rd place in the Fed Ex Cup playoffs.

Scott Wins by 4 at Firestone!!

2011-08-08

PGA Star Adam Scott (FJ Sport and StaSof Glove) has returned to the world’s top-10 on the back of his victory at the WGC Bridgestone Invitational on Sunday. The Australian claimed his first World Golf Championship title at Firestone by an emphatic four-stroke margin after a hugely composed final round of 65.

Scott and his nearest competitor were never separated by more than one shot until Scott chipped in from the side of the 12th green, then rolled in a birdie putt just inside 30 feet on the 14th to build a three-shot lead.

Scott was in imperious form where his victory over the Worlds best restored him to the top of the Australian ranking list and taken him to within six spots of the World No.3 ranking he held in 2007.
