Epic birdie from 209 yards clinches season opener for six-time winner, who wore TRUE’s All Day Ripstop V2 golf shoes
Tacoma, Washington – TRUE linkswear (TRUE), creators of ultra-comfortable, modern golf footwear for walking on the course and off, congratulates PGA TOUR brand ambassador Chris Kirk, who wore TRUE All Day Ripstop V2 golf shoes during his stellar one-shot victory at The Sentry on Sunday. Kirk said Aloha to the 2024 season by blistering the Plantation Course at Kapalua with a 29-under-par finish to collect his sixth-career win and the $3.6 million first-prize check.
The Georgia-born and former University of Georgia standout recorded 30 birdies and just one bogey over the four rounds and led the field in four critical Strokes-Gained categories: Total Putts, Around the Green, Scrambling, and Strokes Gained: Total.
The All Day Ripstop V2 is the most versatile all-season shoe TRUE has ever introduced. Designed to keep you warm and dry on cold, wet days while remaining breathable and comfortable when it's warm thanks to its all-season design and temperature regulating premium wool liner. Featuring a wind and water-resistant 100-percent recycled, durable ripstop polyester shell, a fully updated aesthetic, and the All Day V2 sole with non-slip rubber, the AD Ripstop V2 redefines comfort on and off the course.
“Chris Kirk kicked off the 2024 PGA Tour season in heroic fashion. His 209-yard approach shot on #17, the 71st hole of the tournament, is a very-early contender for shot of the year and is a testament to his clutch resolve and immense talent on the golf course,” said TRUE Co-Founder and CEO Jason Moore. “We couldn’t be prouder to partner with Chris and have him represent TRUE as a PGA TOUR brand ambassador. It’s going to be an amazing season.
”Last season, the resurgent Kirk recorded four top-10 finishes, including his first win on the PGA TOUR since 2015, and finished 32nd in the FedEx Cup Standings. Kirk will compete in all four of golf’s major championships this season and defend his title and the now-rebranded Cognizant Championship at PGA National Resort & Spa in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida. Kirk’s fellow TRUE PGA TOUR Brand Ambassadors include Joel Dahmen, Mark Hubbard, Oliver Wilson, Ryan Brehm, Dylan Wu and company Co-Founder Ryan Moore. The LPGA’s Christina Kim is also a TRUE Brand Ambassador.
