FootJoy has once again been recognised by a collective of industry experts, after being named as “Apparel Brand of the Year” at the annual Pro Shop Europe Awards.

Hosted at the historic Wentworth Club in Virginia Water, the panel acknowledged FJ for “delivering the most innovative and consistent range of clothing” in 2013 and follows a similar citation from Foremost Golf, recently.

With the on-going success of FootJoy’s ever-popular shoe and glove ranges, the award underlines an impressive and memorable year for the brand throughout its extensive product portfolio.

“We’re delighted. Having only entered the market in 2012, the award demonstrates the impact FJ Apparel is has had amongst consumers, and importantly, the retailer. It is also indicative of the hard-work from all the team, whether it is the designers, the sales team, marketing and customer services departments,” said Russell Lawes, FootJoy’s Marketing Manager, who collected the award on the night.

“Our thanks must also go to Pro Shop Europe for putting on such a fine event. We’re already looking forward to next year and continuing to raise the bar.”

Geraldine Faulkner, Editor of Pro Shop Europe magazine, commented: “Despite already being one of the most recognisable brands in the world of golf, it is impressive how quickly and efficiently FootJoy has established a foothold in the apparel market.

"The feedback from our readers has been incredibly positive and for that reason, we are delighted to award FJ for their on-going dedication and understanding of the golf industry.”
