GTxtreme glove from Footjoy gives Bubba Watson grip performance

FAIRHAVEN, Mass. -- As he defends his first major championship, Bubba Watson chooses the GTxtreme™ glove from FootJoy for maximum grip performance.

Well-known for his combination of incredible length off the tee and his ability to shape and create shots from anywhere on the golf course, GTxtreme™ gives Bubba both the secure grip he needs on the club and the feel that shot-shapers seek.

The GTxtreme™glove, the ultimate in Grip Technology, masters the control of your grip with the use of proprietary digital APL™ leather technology combined with a digital FiberSof™ material that results in a glove that provides the ultimate grip in all playing conditions - ideal for players like Bubba who require a secure and reliable connection with the club.

"Once I put the GTxtreme™ glove in play", said Watson, "everything about it was great! It gives me more control to perform at my best."
