“This award is especially gratifying for everyone at FootJoy, as it is of critical importance that we maintain a strong relationship with green grass professionals. Foremost members have an unparalleled knowledge of the golf market thanks to their high-level access to golfing product; and for such experts to recognise FootJoy at this level demonstrates that we are continuing to move in the right direction, commented Richard Fryer, European Sales & Marketing Senior Manager, FootJoy.

“This provides a great spring-board into 2012, as we introduce our innovative new XPS-1 golf shoe and a number of other exciting updates and additions to the consumer.”

On presenting the award to Fryer, Andy Martin, Foremost Company Director said; “Our membership voted across all categories and highlighted FootJoy as best in category due to the all-round excellence of a product offering that consistently generates high unit sales amongst the group’s retailers.
