FootJoy Adds XPS-1™ To The MyJoys® Custom Shoe Program

Customize the most stable shoe in golf with MyJoys

(Fairhaven, MA) – FootJoy, the #1 Shoe in Golf, announces the introduction of XPS-1™ to the custom MyJoys® program. XPS-1 was designed to provide the golfer with unparalleled levels of platform stability and balance during the golf swing. Extensive player testing has concluded that some golfers need added stability in their golf footwear and XPS-1 provides them with just that. XPS-1 now gives the player unmatched platform stability and comfort in a striking new customizable pattern.

This fresh new XPS-1 design features three areas of customizable color: a base color being the predominant color on the shoe and half moon contemporary saddle to give it a modern golf look. An additional accent color will cover the tongue and top collar of the shoe. A new ghost white Xtreme Outsole featuring TPU lateral outriggers that extend beyond the upper to create an ultra-wide platform for maximum ground contact give the XPS-1 its trademark stability platform.

XPS-1 will also feature all of the original under-the-hood elements that made it one of the highest performing shoes in golf. This technology packed shoe offers unmatched levels of comfort and fit. Innovative 3D Viscoelastic GelCollar™ technology provides custom fit and comfort around the collar while a LaserPlus Last is contoured to precisely match the shape of the foot. A high-performance Multi-Density Fit-Bed® with EVA support and HeelLoc™ technology further enhances stability, cushioning and shock absorption.

Additionally, with the introduction of XPS-1 to MyJoys, six new microfiber materials will also be added to the program. These materials will be used in conjunction with the 40 plus leathers previously available in the MyJoys program.
• White and Silver “Sphinx”
• Black and Silver “Sphinx”
• Silver Fluid Patent
• White Microfiber Patent
• Blue Metal Patent
• Black Metal Patent

Furthermore, the advanced BOA® Closure System™ is also be offered as an option with XPS-1 MyJoys.

Rife Captures T-2nd Place Finish At Tour Championship

Sanford, FL – Brendon Todd’s 5-under 65 was the low round of the day and it gave the Stadion Classic at UGA winner a share of 2nd Place with Canada’s Brad Fritsch (66), LSU’s John Peterson (72) and third-round leader Scott Gardiner (72) of Australia.

Todd, who uses a RIFE Vault.001 Series Titan putter, was already assured of a PGA TOUR card by virtue of his 20th-place finish on the Regular Season money list but he moved up eight spots to No. 12 after this T-2nd Place Finish in the Tour Finals.

“All of us at RIFE would like to congratulate Brendon on his amazing finish at the Tour Championship,” said Kyle Ulrikson, PGA TOUR Rep for RIFE Golf, “and we can’t wait to see him out on the PGA TOUR next year.”

Brendon Todd is just one of the many non-endorsed Professional Tour Players who choose to play a RIFE putter even though they’re not paid to play it. “The Tour Players play our putter because it helps them earn a bigger paycheck on Sunday,” said Jim Barfield, V.P. of Tour Operations for RIFE Golf, “and we’re very proud of that. Our RollGroove Technology Face grips and lifts the ball into an instant forward roll and gets it on line and headed towards the cup quicker than any other putter in the industry. If it’s good enough for the best golfers in the world, you can bet it’s going to help you sink more putts as well.”

    The XPS-1’s are slick! I am going to get a pair. I love the fact that they let you customize them and have tons of options to choose from.
