FootJoy, #1 Shoe in Golf, celebrated a historic week in St Andrews with incredible support from The Open Camping Village matched by its ambassadors’ performance on the course. While celebrations were fierce all week, it was ultimately Cameron Smith who earned the greatest applause as the Australian’s deft touches around the swales of The Home of Golf proved too good. Stepping up in Premiere Series Packard and a StaSof glove, a combination that has helped him on his way to three titles this year, Smith etched himself into the history books for golf as The Champion Golfer of The Year at The 150th Open.
Following the win, the ‘man with the mullet’ said:
“All the names on there, every player that’s been at the top of their game has won this championship. It’s pretty cool to be on there. It really hasn’t sunk in yet. I don’t think it will for a few weeks. Yeah, it’s just unreal.”
Pushing Smith all the way, rookie of the year and fellow Cam, American Cameron Young, affirmed his presence on the world stage after a thrilling finish, including an eagle on the 18th hole where he momentarily shared the lead, ended solo runner-up upon his debut at St Andrews. The 25-year-old Open debutant fittingly celebrated his first steps in The Open, wearing the all-new Harris Tweed collaboration, Premiere Series Packard Shawbost. A collection that recognises both brand’s intrinsic role in the history of the game and shared celebration of heritage, while also trusting the #1 glove in the game: the StaSof.
