Looking at the range attire thread, I began to wonder how many people generally wear golf shoes and with what frequency.

I know that I personally only wear them when it's wet out/when I play in a tournament (otherwise I'm balanced enough just in tennis shoes). How about you?

I am pretty sure that coming to a course, with stresses  arising from outside the course incidents and  life in general and not letting it go to enjoy a round of golf, would only exacerbate the natura

I sleep in my golf shoes in case I have a golf dream. Then I won't be barefoot in the dream. 

I've thought about that a little recently but not in the way you're suggesting.  I feel like the spikes on my front foot (right foot for me, I'm left handed) might be restricting in the follow through

I always wear golf shoes with soft spikes when I practice at the range or when I'm on the course.  I like that stability they provide, and found the heaver more supportive shoes hurt my feet less at the end of a round.

I voted "wet". However since I seldom golf in wet weather, I pretty much never wear golf shoes. I prefer a comfortable pair of walking/hiking shoes, or boots.

Seeing as my "Golf" Shoes are just some Everlast sneakers that are waterproof and can grip the ground pretty well.. Always. I have a set of old worn down gym shoes that I wear around and the ever lasts that I use for golf.

As I said in that other thread, I pretty much always wear them. But I wear spikeless golf shoes (FJ superlites). I think I could play in my regular sneakers just fine, but I walk the course and usually go the shortest distance between me and the ball, which may be up or down some BIG hills. So my regular kicks probably wouldn't be good in those situations.

I don't use my regular sneakers often (although I did in my member swing thread haha) because I want to have the exact same feel day to day - no changes. Not because I necessarily need them.

I'll probably just wear regular sneakers to my company for-fun captain's choice tourney in a couple months lol, for humility's sake :-P

Since golf shoes have never improved my game. I only wear my golf shoes if the fairways are damp. If they are dry I just wear a regular pair of sneakers.

I always wear them if I'm doing anything golf related.  I wear True's, so I'll wear them to/from the range as well.  Even if I go in my backyard to practice pitching technique, I throw my golf shoes on.

I always wear them when playing, almost never when I'm hitting balls. My Uncle was a country club pro before WWII, and played in a few PGA events (the Hershey Open, the Pennsylvania Open) back in the day. He told me it wasn't a bad idea to practice in sneakers. If your feet start to slip on you, it means you're over swinging.

I'm surprised how many people say they don't. I voted only when it's wet out.

I think many wear them just to look the part. And with some of the more subtle versions around now it's kind of hard to tell if your bright colored tennis shoes are golf shoes or not.

As we're discussing in another thread right now, it seems like just a pain to have to change shoes on the way out of the car....

Wow, I didn't know. I went a couple years without a pair of golf shoes then saved and got the pair I wanted, then I really saw a difference in how much more stable my contact with ground was. I mean my feet wanna dance, and the shoes give me some stability. So I wear them when ever I'm hitting balls: backyard, range and course.

Always, unless I don't have them with me, but that's pretty rare as they live with my clubs. 

I can play just fine without them, but I like the consistency and the ritual of wearing my "golf stuff" when golfing. 

Also, as an Aimpoint user, there is something to be said for being consistent with your footwear.

    • Well....he made an idiotic comment to himself and the whole world heard it. He is gonna pay for it. But at the end of the day, we have all made really stupid decisions and really bad choices that didn't get broadcast on the Golf Channel. Hopefully he will learn something from this and it will make him a better person. Or it won't. Either way he is going to wake up tomorrow and be a major champion and a millionaire. Same as Patrick Reid. Same as Tiger Woods.    P.S. I am a middle school teacher, and the word Justin Thomas used is still used often in this school environment. It hasn't gone anywhere. 
    • For some reason the putter cover always goes into the cart basket.  Maybe because I’m pulling my towel out of the basket to take to the green? All others just get tossed on the ground. As far as I can remember, I’ve never lost a head cover of any kind.
    • In part I'm trying to hit a draw for extra distance and in part because winds at my coarse commonly reach 20-25mph sustained with 30mph gusts. Hitting a fade into a 20mph headwind, is not my idea of fun. I wasn't exposed, my wife and kid were and they have remained at her mom's because of it.
    • I played Shingle Creek today, as noted by @DaveP043, this is not a demanding course off the tee by any stretch, there was lots of water around but unless you were way offline, it didn’t really come into play.  Conditions were great, greens rolled very well (not too fast).  There are better courses in the area for the price, but we went out before our tee time and got done in about 3.5 hours, so was nice and ther weather was 70, great day on the course with my Dad.
