Footjoy’s new Tour-S shoes and socks, ProFLX gloves (2018 PGA Show Demo Day)

Published

on

FootJoy’s new Tour-S shoes are all about stability, according to FootJoy frontman Chris Garrett. That’s why they have hexagon-shaped pods surrounding the spikes, and the outsoles have been “bumped out.”

Garrett compares the Tour-S shoe design to its XPS-1 shoes from 2011, which were also focused on stability, except there are two main differences: 1) the Tour-S shoes are much lighter, says Garrett, and 2) they have more stability on the outsole, as opposed to the insole, since golfers want stability on the backswing but also want to be able to roll their foot through on the forward swing.

In four colorways, the Tour-S shoes are set to hit retail on February 15 for $249 laced, and $279 with the BOA lace system.

FootJoy’s area on the range at Demo Day was buzzing with golfers getting fit for the company’s new Tour-S golf shoes. And that’s good, because FootJoy frontman Chris Garrett says the most important part of buying a new shoe is the proper fit — he says 70 percent of golfers are wearing the wrong size shoe. So, know your size.

Along with the Tour-S shoes are Tour-S socks — in similar colorways to the shoes — that are specially designed with “roll tabs” to keep the sock from falling down into the shoe. As any golfer knows, there’s nothing worse than when your sock falls down, and your achilles heel is rubbing against the back of your shoe all round. The socks are available for $12 suggested retail.

Also, FootJoy unveiled a new ProFLX glove with TactionLT leather for grip, MicroVent FiberSof for breathability and flexibility, and a ComforTab Velcro Closure system for more comfort around the wrist. The gloves will sell for $21 suggested retail.

Jimmy Walker spotted testing a Titleist prototype driver?

Published

on

As spotted by GolfWRX Forum Member “anthony007,” Jimmy Walker was shown on the Golf Channel’s Morning Drive hitting an unidentified driver at the Warrior Open.

In anthony007’s forum post, along with the photo, he asks the question “Is this a new Driver from Titleist?”

Well, it’s hard to tell from the grainy photo exactly what the driver says on the sole. But then Jimmy Walker himself posted on Twitter saying: “Great catch! Its always fun to test new prototypes and the [Titleist on Tour] guys have given me some cool toys to play with that are incredible – but unfortunately I can’t talk about them yet!”

While the response is a bit cryptic, it does seem that Walker confirms he was indeed testing a Titleist prototype driver.
