Make Every Day Playable With Performance Golf Apparel From FootJoy

NEW BEDFORD, MA – FJ offers the most complete rainwear lineup in golf, from the most insulated and waterproof jackets for harsh weather, to the most breathable and lightweight waterproof protection in warm, wet conditions.

All-new this year is the DryJoys® Select LS, the lightest, most breathable and most waterproof garment ever produced by FootJoy, setting a new standard in rainwear. Validated by the best players in the world under the most extreme conditions, this is the rain jacket for the player who requires the ultimate in all-weather protection.

Specially engineered from a top-in-technology Japanese fabrication, DryJoys Select LS features a 2.5 Layer Construction that reduces weight while still providing full mobility. This premium jacket offers thin, lightweight stretch that doesn’t impede your golf swing, with a soft, quiet and flexible feel. This fabric is extremely lightweight, weighing less than a golf shirt, with the versatility to perform in even the most extreme weather conditions.

DryJoys Select LS is unique in the ability to offer 100% waterproof protection, while also delivering incredible breathability. DryJoys Select LS is available now, featuring three full-zip rain jackets, two half-zip rain shirts and rain pants.

Designed specifically with the golfer in mind, FJ HydroKnit uses a high-quality 3-Layer Bonded Knit Construction that is incredibly lightweight and comfortable in a variety of conditions. In addition, the remarkable 4-way stretch material allows full freedom of motion during the golf swing.

FJ HydroKnit uses a durable water repellent (or DWR) face coating in conjunction with our breathable fabrics to force water to bead up, preventing the outer layer from becoming saturated, while also keeping the player comfortable. The 3-Layer Bonded Face Lamination eliminates any water going through the garment and is 100% wind proof, keeping you comfortable in a variety of weather conditions.

Rounding out the most comprehensive rain jacket lineup in golf is the popular DryJoys® Tour LTS and FJ HydroLite®. Both jackets are constructed from materials that deliver 100% waterproof, breathable protection, with DryJoys Tour LTS performing best in cool, rainy conditions, and FJ HydroLite the perfect, lightweight summer rain jacket.

It’s never too cold to grip a golf club with FJ all-weather golf gloves. Extend your season with a pair of WinterSof gloves, designed to maintain your proper grip regardless of frigid temperatures. And don’t forget a pair of Rain-Grip golf gloves, the World’s #1 Rain Glove, essential for any golf bag for rainy day play.

Titleist Releases Experimental EXP•01 Golf Ball

FAIRHAVEN, MA – The Titleist Golf Ball Research & Development team is comprised of more than 75 associates – from chemical engineers and mathematicians, to materials scientists and aerodynamics physicists – driven by a commitment of continuous improvement and innovation.

It is from their rigorous R&D process – rooted in decades of golfer research and feedback, intellectual property leadership, technological breakthroughs and comprehensive prototype testing – that new ideas are born and performance-enhancing limits are pushed.

Year after year, countless golf ball concepts are developed with some never seeing the light of day and many left on the trial room floor. The new Titleist EXP•01 golf ball – an experimental multilayer construction utilizing a new high performance urethane cover formulation and process – is one concept that has made its way to the top.

The R&D process for EXP•01 continues Oct. 1, when a one-time, limited run will be made available to golf shops in the U.S. and Canada. Additionally, golfers will be able to order EXP•01 through My Titleist on until supplies last.

EXP•01 is being released as part of the Titleist EXP Project, a new and ongoing initiative created to provide golfers the opportunity to experience new golf ball technologies still in the experimental phase. The Titleist R&D and Golf Ball Product Management teams will be actively seeking performance feedback from golfers who play EXP•01 during its availability.

EXP•01 is an experimental golf ball straight from the Titleist R&D laboratory featuring a multilayer construction with a high performance urethane cover formulation.

  • MTR DEVELOPMENTAL COVER SYSTEM: The short game spin enhancing urethane prototype cover was developed through Titleist’s relentless material and process experimentation.
  • INNOVATIVE CORE TECHNOLOGY: A high speed core construction and specialized casing layer deliver low spin on long game shots for great distance and tight dispersion.
  • PROPRIETARY 346 DIMPLE DESIGN: Through testing, the proprietary aerodynamic package has demonstrated an optimized flight profile for peak performance.
