True Linkswear Honors Ryan Moore’s Las Vegas Victory
SCOTTSDALE, AZ (October 15, 2013) – To commemorate his second professional victory, and his first wearing TRUE linkswear, TRUE is releasing four limited edition styles of shoes. The “Ryan Moore Signature Series” features a special color palette combining navy, charcoal, white and sand in two existing styles, as well as the new rebel, a shoe designed specifically for the limited edition run.
Modeled after the style of the TRUE stealth, the rebel also provides the stability of the proto. The rebel low combines the best of both with a treated canvas and leather upper. Built on the sensei outsole, this shoe offers performance and traction, and it features a two-year waterproof guarantee.
The rebel high closely resembles the chukka, but features a suede upper paired with the sensei outsole, ensuring stability and traction. It is a complete all-weather shoe for the fall season.
TRUE also is releasing short runs of its popular sensei and proto styles in charcoal, navy and sand color combinations.
Moore is a co-founder of the company, and he’s maintained a hands-on approach with regard to designing and styling each of TRUE’s lines. The “Ryan Moore Signature Series” pays tribute to his one-shot victory in last year’s Justin Timberlake Shriners Hospitals for Children Open, while offering loyal customers a fresh palette of colors to choose from for the fall.

Port Royal’s 16th helps sort out Grand Slam field
SOUTHAMPTON, Bermuda – It took Jason Dufner just one tour of the course to locate the part of Port Royal Golf Course that required a player’s utmost attention.
“Right off the bat, obviously, 16, kind of a signature hole here,” Dufner said Monday, the day before the start of the 31st PGA Grand Slam of Golf. “A very difficult hole. Especially late in the tournament, you could see a two-shot or even a three-shot swing on that hole. Pretty easy to make a bogey or a double on that hole, and if you hit a good shot, you can pick up a couple of shots.”
Recognized as one of the great par 3s in the world, Port Royal’s gorgeous, oceanfront 16th wreaked all kinds of havoc in Tuesday’s opening round.
