That is a good price.  I am tempted to pick up a pair.  I really like the current ones I have.

I picked up a pair. I also used a $10 discount code (for any Woot purchase over $25) that I got on Amazon Local. $10 off for a cost of $0. So, the shoes were $39.95 for me....

I need a wide shoe and that isn't part of the selection. Damn.

Make certain you know what model you're getting ... the Phoenix seems to be the least popular shoe in the True Line.

If it's the Tour or the Proto ... great deal, otherwise...

Good deal but no 13's.

Or 14's as usual. God forbid I actually get a pair of shoes on sale.

I went shoe shopping yesterday and it's really hard to find 13s in stores. Even harder to find 13 Wide. Most of the shoe "sales" I see online have a bunch of sizes no one can even use.

Well, the sales places are trying to get rid of stuff that hasn't sold. Sometimes you can win with those cruise ships at the ends of your legs, since 13's and 14's don't move in the shops, either. A lot of teh sales I come across will have sizes 6,7, 13,14,15's even. Nothing for us "normals". Although the Woot sale the other day had some normals in one or two styles with the others being only available for dainty feet..

Got my pair just yesterday. It's the Tour model. Has to be the best fitting, most comfortable pair of shoes I've ever put on my feet. Great to have, especially if you like to walk the course. Only concern is that they are "spikeless", so I don't know how long the traction will last. Anyway, clicked on to order another pair or two, and see that they are completely sold out. Maybe the deal will pop up somewhere else. Get a pair - your feet will thank you!

Woot has had specials on the True's a couple of times. Keep checking in and if it isn't the "Woot of the day" it might be in the Sports "Woot" for the day

Woot ran another special on the True Tours last week. Have been looking at these for a while and curious about the hype so couldn't pass it up at $49. They arrived yesterday and I put them on right away expecting to be disappointed by everyone's expectation setting "most comfortable shoe ever" promotions. I was wrong. They are so comfortable that I didn't want to take them off - in fact, I didn't take them off - wore them around the house the rest of the day just because. I laughed at an earlier comment where someone compared the feeling to "walking on a cloud of titties" - I know know how accurate a description that is. While, in full disclosure, I've never actually walked on titties, if I ever did, this is exactly what I expect it would feel like. Haven't taken them to the course yet (that's later today hopefully) so can't speak for traction, etc. but I'm optimistic.

    • I had a hard time doing the hip thing. What happened was starting the swing with the arms. Now I start my swing by literally attacking with my right shoulder to the ball and just ignoring the club, hands, arms. The effect is, the hip is pushed out of the way, it just has to anatomically, the right elbow comes in before the body and you get in a position where you can give it smack with the right side.  So yes for me it is a start with the upper body the thing that is said to be a nono.  Its really just an approach from the other side to clear the hips. Worth a try. I love it.
    • When you say with the right shoulder you mean staying connected with the hips though? Not rotating the uper body 1st right? I really struggle with the legs / knees doing what they're supposed to.
    • Ok. I think I made big progress now. I practised swinging with speed yesterday (without hitting the ball) and measuring club head speed. What I noticed is that rotating my hips and body faster did nothing for speed. But keeping my wrists and arms loose and do everything from there gave at least 10 mph more speed. Also I worked on my timing. I measured 80 with my 7 iron, and around 85 with my 5. Could not measure my driver at home though. Today at the range I hit the ball around 200-220 yards with my seven iron which is pretty insane compared to how far hit it before. I was doing this on hard practise mats though. So on the fairway this might be less. Also I used a lot of lag. So my 7 iron probably behaved more like 6 or even 5 iron. Ok. Now for the driver. I did some corrections to my hand position and stance. No slice anymore which of course makes the ball flight straighter and longer. I hit is pretty consistently 220 yards. Which is pretty interesting since this is NOT a lot of longer than I hit my 7 iron. I also tried my Hybrid (its like a 4 iron) but did only gain about 10m of distance and more much inconsistent shots. Now I took your advice and tried a 3 wood. Wow you were right. I hit the ball 240 yards.  Whats is all means to me that I could probably hit the driver 250 yards or more but at the moment I still have a swing problem with this. I should mention that I use a very cheap driver from a complete Wilson set (whole set around $300). Maybe my timing with arms and wirst are just wrong with the driver.  Could also be the driver itself. But I doubt it since I hit the 3 wood from the same Wilson set much longer it seems.
    • do the hipslide by attacking with right shoulder, some find it easier. Try it it also presses the hip away just passively. 
    • Hopefully won't get into trouble for bumping an older thread but this is awesome. I'm working on hipslide, infact I'm obsessed with hipslide. I'm a s&t player so the hipslide is key part of the process for me at the moment. Any of you high HC players onto any feelings that help you get this down?  Finding it so hard to nail. I'm a feeling player and the info the coach has given me all makes total sense but unless I can get a feeling to work towards its hit and miss.  Cheers.
