The IMG Junior Golf Tour teed off in Oxford, Pa. for the ALINE Systems Junior Open at Wyncote Golf Club, Oct. 26-27. Chilly temperatures and high wind gusts could not stop the competition from heating up among a field of 68 players from seven states. In the Boys 15-18 division, Liam McAnally of Downingtown, Pa. carded solid rounds of 76-79 to secure his first-career Tour victory. “It was very cold and windy out there so I just tried to focus on keeping my shots low and out of the wind as much as possible,” McAnally said of his performance. “The key for me was my short game; being able to get up and down when I missed greens.”

McAnally recently finished fifth in the Pennsylvania Interscholastic Athletic Association (PIAA) state tournament. Incidentally, McAnally wore a pair of ALINE insoles, which he says he has in every pair of shoes he owns, through the weekend.

In the Girls division, 13-year old Kaitlyn Lees of Bryn Mawr, Pa. turned in scores of 87-76 to secure the victory. Meanwhile, Alex Chin of Chatham, N.J. finished with rounds of 78-81 to claim his second Tour title after winning his division at Berkshire Valley earlier this month.

Title sponsor ALINE Systems provided all participants with free ALINEment analysis on site, and sponsored the #PowerStraightUp par-five contest on the ninth hole. Winners in the par-five contest were chosen for achieving the lowest aggregate score, with Andrew Bowyer of Summit, N.J. and Kaitlyn Lees earning free pairs of ALINE insoles for their performance.

The ALINE Systems Junior Open marked the sixth event on the IMG Junior Golf Tour calendar, and the last Northeast event in 2013. The event was hosted by Wyncote Golf Club, which is ranked by Golf Magazine as the ‘No. 5 course you can play in Pennsylvania.’  AJGA Performance Based Entry was awarded to the top five finishers in the Boys division and the Girls division winner. The Tour gets back underway at the PGA Golf Club – Ryder Course in Port St. Lucie, Fla., Nov. 9-10. The Tour will return to the Northeast in 2014 at Heron Glen Golf Club in Ringoes, N.J., April 5-6.

Trahan Wins Again On ALINE

Marblehead, MA – ALINE, the company committed to redefining athletic performance “from the ground up” congratulates D.J. Trahan for his dramatic win at the 2008 Bob Hope Chrysler Classic.

Wearing ALINE suspension insoles, Trahan made eight final-round birdies to shoot 7-under-par 65 at the Classic Club, creating a seven-shot swing to defeat fourth-round leader Justin Leonard. His winning score of 334 (26 under par) earned him the $918,000 first prize.

Trahan switched to the ALINE system in 2006 after being introduced by his father, respected golf teach Don “Swing Surgeon” Trahan (www.swingsurgeon.com). Within two months, he earned his first tour win at the 2006 Southern Farm Bureau Classic.

“What ALINE has done is provide golfers with a necessary piece of golf equipment,” says D.J., “Immediately I was blown away with the change ALINE produced and the way it ‘molded’ my shoes to my feet. There is no doubt in my mind that with my ALINE equipment I have improved my golf swing because of the perfecting of my alignment.”

ALINE is the maker of a system that allows athletes to easily understand and optimize their lower leg and foot alignment. This is done with a highly-engineered footbed that allows the foot and leg to align naturally, resulting in dramatic improvements in athletic performance.

“I will always be amazed at the amount of money golfers spend on equipment such as clubs and balls but when it comes to alignment, we often know more about our cars than our own bodies, says Derek Carroll, president of ALINE, “The feet are the basis of performance—a small misalignment can lead to a huge loss of performance and a whole range of biomechanical problems. This should be a priority to athletes in all sports.”

ALINE Teams with New England PGA

Marblehead, MA – ALINE Systems, Inc. and the New England Professional Golfers Association are pleased to announce a partnership to benefit the health and performance of area golfers. The two Massachusetts-based organizations are dedicated to enhancing golfers’ enjoyment of the game.

ALINE benefits players of all abilities by checking—and optimizing—their foot and lower leg alignment. The laser-assisted “ALINER” devices quickly and easily measures foot size and ankle/knee position. In just minutes, the golfer can see exactly where his or her alignment should be. And good alignment means stability, balance and maximum power transfer.

Once you “know your line,” ALINE has developed suspension insoles that align and stabilize your foot while still allowing its parts to move as nature intended. So more lower leg energy goes directly into the swing, instead of wearing out the foot and ankle structures.

“ALINE has shown their product to be a very effective tool in helping golfers create the right foundation to play,” says Nathan Robbins, Executive Director of the New England PGA, “The system is easy to understand—-before you try the insole you can see how out of whack your frame is…and once you step on the ALINE insole and the feed back is immediate!”

The New England Professional Golfers’ Association (New England PGA) is a non-profit association that has been making the game of golf better for over 80 years. The New England section consists of over 750 PGA class A golf professionals and at over 450 golf facilities in five states—Rhode Island, Vermont, New Hampshire, Massachusetts & Maine. These facilities include public, private and resort golf courses, teaching centers, and driving ranges.

Since opening its doors in early 2006, ALINE has been quickly adopted by golfers at the highest levels, and has won a “Best in Show” award from the 2007 PGA Merchandise show. PGA players D.J. Trahan and Rory Sabbatini have won Tour events on ALINE, and numerous NCAA Division 1 golf teams have purchased the product for their players.

“We’re thrilled to be working with the New England PGA,” says Derek Carroll, president of ALINE, “Both of our organizations are dedicated to creating a solid foundation for the game of golf. I can’t imagine a more natural partnerhip.”
