Goodyear welted Personally I wouldn't wear them, my FJs are just too comfortable.

It's hard to beat higher end Adidas shoes for me. They just fit my foot perfectly.

But is there still good grip on the sole?

I've got spiked and spikeless shoes, only advantage I've found to the spiked shoes is walking up/down steepish slopes, but even then it's not much different, the spikes just give a bit more traction.

So with all the shoe talk, and with this being Styleforum, what type of clothes do you guys wear on course?

Adidas Tailored Fit polos fit great and cost about $40-50. I have some J Crew Bowery pants that fit alright and are fairly lightweight. I seem to be lacking in the pants and shorts department. I hate thinking about dropping $80 on some ill fitting "golf" pants from nike and the like.

I always wear trousers in summer for the UV protection, usually just chinos, but have some ill fitting Nike/Puma/Adidas golf trousers for Spring/Autumn, but I take them to the local seamstress who does a good job of fitting them. +1 Adidas Tailored Fit polos, also have some Adidas Drysomething tennis shirts and some sports wool shirts with the crest of my old club in Australia that work well Spring/Autumn.

Had a round setup today with about 5-6 of the local course pros in this golfing resort. We were going to play best ball for a little bit of cash. Had a blast the last time we did it, but today we got rained out. Pretty bummed. Hopefully try it again in a few weeks.

Finally starting to feel like some of the hard work is beginning to pay off. Played 36 today. First round was an 80 (41/39) on a course with a 73.4 rating and a 138 slope. From a differential standpoint this was my best round of the year. Lowest pure score so far was a 78, but on an easier course.

2nd round was on a companion course at the same facility. Had an 85 (41/44) on a course with a 73.3 rating and a 137 slope. Felt pretty good, but was getting a bit tired toward the end. Got on a bogie string that was probably a bit fatigue induced. Doubled 18, which was a bummer.

Playing again in the morning. Doubt I'll play 36 again, but we'll see.

Shot a (+1) 73 today. Hit some pretty badass shots, but also had some flukes. Shanked a lob wedge into the water beside the green, but ended up salvaging bogey. Then missed 2, 4 foot putts in a row on 13 and 14. Could have easily been a few under par today. Going out in the morning and seeing what I can do.

Fang, Mark how'd it go?


I played a HORRIBLE front 9 (43) but then tidied it up and shot even on the back. The first 6 holes at my home course will straight up kick your ass if you aren't on your game from the start. This was evident today when I went +5 through 6 holes.

Here are a few pics from today: Course plays 7150 from the tips with a 75.3 course rating and 138 slope.


Hole 4 from the left rough. Short, slight dogleg right par 4 to a elevated sloping green.


Hole #4 green. They had the flag in a pretty mean location today way up on the back right shelf only about 12 feet of green to work with up there. You can see where my second shot ended up. Chipped it over the green from there and ended up making double shog[1].gif You can also see the par 5 8th on the left side. It's a long dogleg left with water on the left and lined with bunkers. Fun hole

This is 15. Dogleg left par 4. Green is protected behind the thick tree group on the left. Tee shot is pretty open, but left is definitely better for your second shot.


It's a fun course. Was voted #10 in the state a few years back. The front 9 is more difficult with a lot of elevation changes winding through the hills. It's nice and serene though, you can't hear any street traffic on the front. The back winds through a neighborhood.

Nice pics Pilot.

I played similarly to you just more so. On the back 9 I shot my best 9 holes of golf in many years scored -3 for the 9 biggrin.gificon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif;

Unfortunately I had already shot a number on the front 9 that is too large to be contained on a computer screen including a quadruple bogey and 2 triple bogeys shog[1].gifffffuuuu.gif

OUCH on the triples and a quad! I had a similar day as my last round. 41 on the front and 36 on the back. Had a triple myself, NIGHTMARE of a hole.

The quad was just terrible, shortish par 4 dogleg right, hit a decent drive but it ran long through the landing zone into deepish rough, shanked a 9 iron sideways, put a wedge 15 yards over the green, duffed the return chip, hit the next chip short and then 3 putted. ffffuuuu.gif
