Padraig Harrington has teamed up with FootJoy for the new season when he will don the latest addition to their range, SYNR•G.

The Irishman successfully defended his Open crown last year a few weeks before claiming a first US PGA title, and although he narrowly missed out on the European Tour top spot to Robert Karlsson, he will be sporting number one shoes in 2009.

First look at the NEW Footjoy SYNR-G

Harrington revealed his delight at joining up with shoe giants FootJoy. “FootJoy is a brand that just about every young golfer is brought up wearing, and I was no different,” said the Dubliner.

“The belief should be that you are playing the very best shoes available, which will give you an edge over the field. The new SYNR-G shoes from FootJoy support the foot well throughout the golf swing, which is so important to hitting solid, powerful shots.”

The World No.4 will be featured in new FootJoy television advertisements as well as print and online creative throughout the year.

Harrington, 37, will be bidding for a third straight Major in April at Augusta as he goes in search of his own ‘Tiger Slam’ – named after Woods held all four Majors over two seasons in 2000-2001.
