Equipment – Spikes

Golf shoes can be pricey but well worth it. Golf shoes, in fact, play a significant role in your swing’s performance. Why? Friction. Imagine trying to play golf on ice. You’ll be slip slidin’ all over the place. Spikes create friction with the ground so that you can leverage that ground for stability, which in turn, helps you generate clubhead speed. In this short video, Marc and I get our spikes changed. So, let’s get to it.
