Adrian Meronk adds another victory wearing FootJoy Premiere Series golf shoes

Adrian Meronk earned his third victory of the season on Sunday, after a one-shot win at the Estrella Damm N.A Andalucia Masters, to break back into the top 50 of the World Rankings.
After being two-over after three holes during the final round, Meronk played his remaining holes in eight under-par to win in Spain and climb up to third in the Race to Dubai rankings.

This is Meronk’s third DP World Tour victory wearing the Premiere Series Tarlow golf shoes, after having previously played in the Packard model and the FJ Icons before that.

“I have always played in FootJoy golf shoes for as long as I can remember. Recently, I have been wearing the Premiere Series Tarlow model and so far, they have performed very nicely,” Meronk said. “I really want my feet to be as solid as possible during the golf swing and out of all the shoes I have tested, it is the Tarlow model that offers me the most stability.”

“Whilst the comfort needs to be there, which the Tarlow shoe does also provide, it is the stability that is the most important aspect,” Meronk said about the important factor when selecting a golf shoe. “This is due to all that power from the ground I like to generate during my swing, where I need my feet to be secure in the golf shoe.”

Premiere Series continue to be the most worn shoe on the DP World Tour due to the combination of timeless aesthetics and golf-specific performance technology.

The Premiere Series Tarlow model features hand-selected premium grain leather, the VersaTrax+ outsole for supreme performance and a soft EVA midsole for enhanced underfoot cushioning and comfort.

Seven of the top 12 finishers in Spain opted to wear a FootJoy shoe model, including Chase Hanna, who started the week 145th in the Race to Dubai rankings, a long way outside top 116 who get to retain their card for the 2023-24 season.

Hanna, wearing his Premiere Series Wilcox golf shoes, shot a final round 66 to finish in a tie for fourth place and catapult up to 105th in the rankings, almost certainly guarenteeing his card for next season with just one full-field event remaining in the schedule.

“I have always played in FootJoy as I believe they are the standard when it comes to golf shoes. They keep your feet dry and are certainly a great quality product”.

“Stability is the main thing I look for in a golf shoe as I have very active feet during my swing, so I need a shoe that keeps me steady, making sure that I don’t slip and FootJoy has always provided me the stability I need,” said Hanna. “I am also a big fan of the look of the shoe, whether that be the old DryJoy models or the more recent Premiere Series I currently wear, I just love that classic styling.”

In Spain, over half of the field (59%) chose to put their trust in the #1ShoeinGolf, with the nearest competitor coming in at 15%. It was not just shoes which topped the equipment counts for the week however, with 42% of the field opting to wear the #1GloveinGolf.
On the PGA Tour at the Zozo Championship, FJ once again dominated the shoe and glove counts, with 51% and 32% of the field respectively trusting in FootJoy.

FootJoy was also the #1 Shoe and Glove on the LPGA, PGA Tour Champions and Challenger PGA Tour of Australasia last week.
