FootJoy introduces new FJ RainGrip and WinterSof golf gloves

FAIRHAVEN, Mass. -- FootJoy, the #1 Glove in Golf, introduces the all-new
RainGrip, engineered to deliver unbeatable grip performance in the wettest
playing conditions; and the new WinterSof glove, designed for unmatched
performance in cool weather conditions. Extend the golfer's playing season
in the extreme weather conditions, with the new FJ RainGrip® and WinterSof®
gloves.

RainGrip: #1 Rain Glove in Golf
Pricing: MSRP $22.00
As worn on the PGA Tour, FJ's RainGrip golf glove is essential equipment
for Rain-Ready™ play. Most important in wet or humid weather is the
players' grip on the club and the new RainGrip glove offers an unbeatable
connection to the golf club in those conditions.

The Sure-Grip™ AutoSuede™ material conforms to your hand and the golf grip
for maximum control and golf club security. As with all FJ gloves, a
precise fit is paramount, and the ComforTab™ closure with dual elastic
bands provides the best possible fit. Additionally, a new QuikDry™ knit
material along the back of the hand ensures optimum breathability and
flexibility for a full day of comfort. Consumer testing shows that the new
Sure-Grip Autosuede™ material provides enhanced feel, better fit, and a
more secure connection to the club.

"The hands are the player's only connection to the golf club and that
connection becomes a lot less predictable during wet or humid playing
conditions," said Maria Bonzagni, Senior Director of Marketing, FJ Gloves
and Accessories. "With this new RainGrip golf glove, the player can compete
with confidence knowing they have the fit, grip and control of the #1 Rain
