D.J. Trahan's Winning Alignment: ALINE Insoles Make the Difference
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.” The ALINE insole system benefits athletes of all abilities by optimizing their foot and lower leg alignment to stop excessive pronation and other misalignments. The laser-assisted "ALINER" device quickly and easily measures foot size and ankle/knee position. In just minutes, the athlete can see exactly where his or her alignment should be. And the ALINE suspension insoles allow this optimization to occur naturally. For more on ALINE, visit alineinsoles.com or call 800-736-9005.
