Golf Tip – Check Your Spikes

October 17, 2015 Posted by Matt

Check your spikesBefore you head to the golf course, check your spikes.  Almost all golf courses now require soft spikes to help keep putting surfaces smooth.  Soft spikes, however, will wear down rather easily, and you can lose traction, especially when the ground is wet with dew or rain.  Check your spikes periodically, and change them several times during the season if you play fairly often.  Good traction is important for maintaining good balance and making a weight shift.  You may not notice that you are losing your balance from worn spikes, as it happens gradually.  Keep all of your equipment in working shape in order to play your best.
