PGA Pro Teeing Off in Tennis Shoes!
At 34 years old, Toya Goya has been at it for a while. He's experienced a lot on the pro circuit, but we'd guess he's never teed off in his trainers before. He got the nod that he was officially in the field for the Shriner's PGA Tour tournament literally minutes before he was to tee off. Without time to change his shoes, he headed to the first tee and proceeded to have a great round. He did get a chance to change his shoes after the tee shot, but it does go to show that while golf shoes are definitely important, they're not essential. It is worth noting however that the conditions were dry.
Nike Limited Edition Open Championship Golf Shoes
It's a tradition that never gets old; Nike commemorating major championships. And this one is extra special. The 150th Open Championship at the Old Course at St. Andrews.

Jordan 12 Golf Metallic Gold
This awesome version of the Jordan 12 G dropped during the Masters. And now it's already not available. Which was expected. So we'll just put it here to show what most of us will never have.

FJ Traditions VS FJ Premiere Series
Traditions vs Premiere Series; the battle of the FootJoy classic-style golf shoes. So which is better? The first thing worth pointing out is that since everyone's feet are differently shaped, it's hard to say which one is more comfortable and a better fit. However, it does appear that more people have fit/comfort issues with the Premiere Series than with the Traditions. A common complaint with the Premiere Series is that the toe is too narrow and the heel too wide. It's worth pointing out again that this not the majority opinion, but has nonetheless be stated numerous times. Overall, we've personally rated the Premiere Series slightly higher than the Traditions. However, in terms of comfort alone, we ranked the Traditions slightly higher.
FJ Premiere Series
Air Jordan 12 Low Golf "Playoffs"

There are four colorways available, all of which reminisce about the waning summer sunrises and sunsets. They are available for a limited time on the adidas website.

Another major looms, which can mean only one thing; Nike has created another "major edition" golf shoe. This time it's the Air Max 90 G "PGA Championship edition". It features custom touches that honor Tulsa, Oklahoma, where the championship will be played. The most noticeable nod to Tulsa is the map on the insole, along with the tongue, which features a Highway 72 logo. This acknowledges the iconic Route 66, which Nike changed to 72 to commemorate when the company was founded. They will be available to purchase from the Nike website on May 19, and as usual are expected to sell out quickly!
