WINDHAM, NH, February 28, 2022 – SQAIRZ, the fastest growing golf footwear company, congratulates SQAIRZ Brand Ambassador Sepp Straka on winning his first PGA Tour event. The Honda Classic is the first PGA Tour event won by an athlete wearing the new SQAIRZ golf shoes.
Straka birdied holes 14, 16 and 18 to shoot 66 and best Shane Lowry in one shot. Straka ranked first in shots gained off the start and had nearly five shots from the field. His combined distance (310 yards average) and accuracy (83.9% fairway completion) led to his first PGA Tour victory.
After his massive 334-yard drive on the 18th hole, the longest drive of the week, SQAIRZ served Straka well as the rain began to fall, allowing him to land his second shot and putt to secure the birdie and the win. SQAIRZ’s traction, waterproof material, stability and comfort all came into play on this 18th hole.
Asked about his victory, Sepp Straka replied: “I can’t believe how much of a difference my SQAIRZ made on the 18th hole. Even with the poor conditions, I was still able to get great traction to hit that good drive and nail that six iron, setting up the game-winning birdie.”
After hearing Sepp’s comment, Bob Winskowicz, Founder and CEO of SQAIRZ replied, “It’s a great testament to the performance of our new Speed golf shoes and we’re thrilled to have been a part of this great time. We at SQAIRZ would all like to congratulate Sepp on his incredible win.”
