Masters caddy banned for needing sandals - really !! - Page 2

The first time we played there my wife had a brand new pair of sandal golf shoes. On the way to the course she said she couldn't wait to play in her new shoes.

 

When they told her she couldn't go on the course with them I never felt more sorry for her in my life.

 

I work there now and I still think it's a BS rule but nothing I can do about it.

That's pretty weird.  I'm sure your course would enjoy trailer trash like me spitting chew into the rough out of the side of my cart.

That's the really ironical part. There is absolutely no dress code (other than the sandals). Normal attire for the Saturday game for many of the guys is their grease stained work pants and an old tee shirt with holes in it.

 

Sounds like you would fit right in as long as you wore your steel toed work boots and left the sandals at home. :beer:

Maybe there's an insurance issue related to sandals.

Could be. I think I'll ask them tomorrow (if I think about it).

Well I did ask today why they had the rule at our course.

 

They said chemicals are absorbed by feet on a golf course and that cancer rate is higher for golf course workers than most of the general public because of exposure. They said they were simply trying to protect the golfers for their own good.

 

For most of us that have been rolling around on athletic fields (which are also sprayed) most of our lives that horse has probably already left the barn.

Interesting thanks for following up. Uh I guess I shouldn't be holding a used tee in my mouth then. Hm.

I don't think the chemicals (amount or number) applied to a baseball field even come close to those on a golf course.

That part was supposed to be a joke (I hope).

I played with a guy one time that actually put his golf ball in his mouth to clean it off. :yucky:
