FootJoy, the #1 Shoe and Glove in Golf, has for the second successive year been acknowledged by Europe’s leading golf retail services group, the TGI Golf Partnership, as its #1 supplier following yet another commanding performance in the 2012 Suppliers’ Survey.

The TGI Golf Partnership is owned equally by PGA Professionals, and it was these partners who voted en masse for FootJoy in recognition of its industry-leading product and customer service support. In the 10 categories that were voted on, FootJoy consistently scored above the supplier average that was calculated from TGI Golf’s many Partner Suppliers, leaving FootJoy with a score over 20% (11 percentage points) higher than the supplier average. FootJoy also dominated the footwear category accounting for almost 60% of all sales through TGI Golf Partners, while also enjoying high sales figures from its outerwear and men’s and women’s apparel.

“To win this award for a second successive year is testament to our expert sales teams’ continued dedication to enhancing our long-standing relationship with green grass professionals right across the board,” commented Richard Fryer. Sales & Marketing Director FootJoy EMEA. “The TGI Golf Partnership is one of FJ’s most valued relationships, so to have their partners recognise us in such important categories clearly demonstrates that we are continuing to listen and improve best-practices year-on-year.”

Eddie Reid, TGI Golf Partnership Managing Director, said: “This is the second successive year that FootJoy has come out on top of TGI Golf Partnership’s comprehensive Suppliers’ Survey. This extensive study is conducted among our PGA Professional Partners, where each supplier is scored on a range of categories. To come out on top two years in a row highlights the continued quality in products and first-class service from FootJoy. Congratulations to everyone involved.”

Whether it is the all-round excellence of FJ ICON™, the Xtreme Platform Stability of the XPS-1™, the reliability and consistent performance of DryJoys Tour™, the sports performance of the FJ Sport™, the minimal construction and maximum feel of the brand new FJ M:PROJECT™ or the multi-functional, lifestyle-infused Contour Casual, FootJoy remains the overwhelming favourite for golfers of all abilities around the world.
