backwards shoes

10 posts in this topic

I was playing with my cousin the other day at Dear Creek.  I have always had problems with golf shoes, I hate them severly.  Now i just wear basketball shoes or crocs.  After the first nine I went into the bathroom (needed to release the six beers from the front nine).  I didn't notice at the time but when I came out of the bathroom I had put my shoes on the wrong feet.  I finished the round up with ABSOLUTELY no feet pain for the first time in years.  I want to wear them like that again but I don't want to look like a total idiot infront of my cousin.  Does anyone know of any brand of shoe that looks the same no matter what foot you wear it on.  My wife said her white keds did, but I went to the store and they didnt have a 13.

Wait, I don't get it.  You take your shoes off to take a leak?

Reminds me of that old Seinfeld episode where George decides to take off his shirt to go to the bathroom.

Your shoes fit better when on the wrong foot and you hate your golf shoes? Sounds to me like you should find the nearest golf retailer, multiple of them at that, and try different shoes until you find a pair that fits. I've had various experiences with golf shoes, but once I found the most comfortable ones, I wonder why I didn't go there before.

Polishing off a 6 pack on the front 9 might have had something to do with it.....

The lack of pain might have had something to do with the six pack on the front nine.  Try fitting shoes when you're more "alert" and I suspect they will feel better on the correct foot.

Yea If I had a six pack on the front nine anything would fell ok. So you took the shoes off so you would not get the wet is this correct

I may regret this but I am going to throw out an actual theory here. You could be a supinator which means you walk on the outside of your feet. Wearing your shoes on the opposite foot put the arch of the shoe under the outer part of your foot. This corrected your gait and helped take pressure off your feet and shins. I too have this issue. I have actually taken arch supports and put them in the opposite shoes to accomplish the same thing.

As for wearing the shoes themselves on the wrong foot... C'MON MAN!!! Please don't this. It just makes me sad.

      Nice to see Chris Wood win this,well done.He tends to play well in the British Open with a best T3 at Turnberry maybe this win will spur him on. Surely another Ryder cup player.
    • Your best golfing bargain
      I got two: Played Orange County National (Orlando) for 50 dollar. Including lunch and both Crooked cat and Panther lake. And got vouchers to play the course next time for half the normal price. Played a three day tourney in Sauerland (Germany) including a pré tourney round for 220 dollar. During the three days ALL drinks for free, food for free, last day dinner for free. Not just a hamburger, but full fetched all you can eat top meal (and again all drinks for free). Will be back next year 
    • GPS, WHY ?
      It comes down to how big are your shot zones. It's usually better to try to line up the shot zone center to the center of the green.
    • Are you a Better Golfer than a Year Ago?
      And confirmation. Last year I played a three day tournament in Germany and scored 82, 86 and 91. Same tourney this year 80, 83 and 86. Happy 
    • What would a PGA Tour player shoot at your home course?
      Here's some more below about the lowest you might expect - even on an easy course. I think this is largely true, but pros don't tend to play a lot on 'easy' courses so there doesn't seem to be even much anecdotal stuff. The quote below describes what's considered the 'perfect round'. I guess you could also consider a 'go-for-green' perfect round where you also hit all the par 5's in two and one-putted those for eagle for a 'go-for-green perfect' score of 50. Obviously the likelihood of doing this in a single round defies the essence of golf, but it's a good a hard theoretical lower limit that probably depends more on the par than the course rating. Likely the odds grow exponentially as the percentage of birdied / eagled holes rises. I think we can discount albatrosses as a 'perfect round' option. Most tournament pro scores don't get below 56 and 59 with about an 80/20 rule separating the more frequent 59s from the 58's. That's 4-5 strokes (assuming par 72) over the 'perfect round' and 8-9 over the 'go-for-green perfect round', each of which represent grabbing about 75% and 61% respectively of the potential shots under par realistically available. I suppose a short par-4 would add another potential eagle opportunity, but we'll discount that as I'm not sure how universal they are. The lowest tournament round was 55 (par of 71) by one single golfer out of how many total tournament rounds by pros and plus HCP amateurs over the years? So while 55 is humanly achievable it's super rare and likely represents the lower limit of any possible likelihood. That would put the absolute lowest threshold around 17.8 below the course rating (72.8) and 16 below par. So there's a lot of room to go below even a low course rating or par of 70. I don't think the expected scores would get too squished and the distribution would still likely be normal in shape. The thing that is probably unrealistic is how narrow the range of expected scores is. The field is extremely consistent, but I think a single individual player (whose average score is the same as the field) will have a score variance significantly larger than the field. I think the mode likely stays the same while the distribution flattens / spreads out more into the tails with a little more probability to both go low and high and less certainty of shooting within a stroke or two of the mode / most likely score.
