Austrian Markus Brier stepped up to record his first European Tour win outside his own country at the Volvo China Open and at the same time gave market leading shoe brand, FootJoy, a first European Tour win for the new ReelFit shoe – just weeks after its launch in Europe.
Markus led the tournament by one shot coming into the last round. He then birdied two of the last three holes on the demanding Shanghai Silport course and never looked back, closing with a 67 for a ten under par total of 274 and an impressive five stoke win.
Launched to critical acclaim FootJoy’s revolutionary ReelFit shoes have taken the golf industry by storm raising the bar in comfort, fit and performance and proving extremely popular on Tour and with the general public.
The breakthrough technology comes courtesy of an exclusive licensing agreement with Boa Lacing Technologies and has taken the lead from sports such as snowboarding, ice hockey and cycling to make laces a thing of the past. With its easy release and tightening device, courtesy of nearly 2 feet of micro cable, the FootJoy ReelFit is said to represent the next generation in Dynamic Custom Fitting.
As well as the exclusive BOA lacing system, ReelFit shoes are packed with other features including the Tri-density TPU outsole with OptiFlex technology for outstanding stability, foot motion control, flexibility and full grain leather uppers utilising ECL Leather system by Pittards (Extreme Comfort Leather) with Armor-Tan Abrasion resistance.
