Anything Puma! I have pair of Puma's (not sure which model) and they are the best golf shoe I've ever owned.

I have to agree, i have a slightly wider foot, and the Puma's seem to run a bit wide. I love my pair of non-spike shoes, so comfy.

I love the true shoes as well.  Most comfortable shoes I have ever worn.  I play in the mornings though and my original lTrue Tour shoes are usually like wet socks by hole 6.

I'd say TRUE Linkswear as well and in particular, the TRUE sensei since you want something more like a running shoe.

I understand the 2012 and '13 editions have resolved these issues from reading other posts about waterproofing...

Nice, because they are the best shoes out there otherwise.

Been sporting the Range shoes for the past season and a half. Hands down the most comfortable golf shoe I've worn to date. No slip, waterproof (I live in the northwest) and stylish.

The Nike Air Range are very comfortable. I have last years version waterproof and under $60. I also just picked up the Adidas adizero Dicks Sporting Goods Exclusive. $89 a bit cheaper than the standard adizero. So far they are very comfortable. Also waterproof and have platic spikes.

I love my True's, but in my humble opinion they are ugly as sin.  If they ever come out with some more traditional designs they will be pretty much all I wear.

You don't. Half the time, I play in running shoes. If you're swinging so hard that you need spikes to keep from slipping, you might be swinging too hard.

    • There still seems to be a bit of a disconnect between his explanation of the situation and the shot that he actually played......just doesn't add up that he hit pretty much a perfectly paced shot with the "belief" that that ball was  sitting way down and maybe even slightly plugged.....just doesn't look to me that he was trying to gouge out a shot that is sitting way down........as Erik said on the first page, there is a huge difference between a ball sitting all the way down and one that is sitting up even a 1/4" 
    • So? I'll take what may be the minority view here… but so what? You said the kid was young, so I'm picturing, I don't know, a 7-year-old kid. At this point, the father's main "goals" should really just be "let the kid whack a few balls, see if he has some fun." What you see as "a few fundamentals" might overwhelm the kid. After all, look at the list you just posted and what sorts of corrections you'd have to make to fix all of those things… When I introduced @NatalieB to golf (granted, she was barely three), I cared about roughly three things: That she stood on the left side of the golf ball (righty clubs) That she put her left hand above her right hand That she had fun whacking golf balls "somewhere in the right general direction" That's it. Every "fundamental" that came after that was a result of her expressing a desire to get better. The last thing I'd have thought to do was to give her a list of a bunch of "fundamentals." That sounds like the opposite of fun. The most important thing a parent can do to help their kids develop a passion for golf is to make sure they have fun around golf (on the golf course, at the range, etc.), particularly early on.
    • Thanks for all the advice. Its definitely more a case of wondering if my distance is likely to increase rather than worrying about it.  At the moment I just want to keep working on a reliable and repeatable swing that gives me a straight shot.  Once I've got that I can think about other things. The point about not fully trusting the swing yet is not something I had thought about before, but I think there may be something in that - repetition and practice is the answer to that I guess. Those distances are already in yards I'm afraid :)
    • Kiawah Island is even worse, I'm sure… it's about a 30-minute drive under regular circumstances onto the island and out to the course, let alone during the PGA Championship.
    • I would like to add that you made sure to convert the meters into yards (add an extra 10% or so to the numbers), right?  Otherwise, those are respectable numbers for someone only started their golf journey. FWIW, as a 58 year old who started playing golf in their mid-40s, I don't have a lot of distance (driver 210-240y, 7i 130-140y and PW 95-105y), but I do enjoy the game very much, did take lessons and improved my swing considerably after I did.
