Make no mistake, when you hit the golf course, you need to have firm footing. There is nothing worse than showing up on the first tee and realizing all you have is your trainers. Morning dew, midday sprinklers, inclement showers and winter golf, among other things, are all going to affect the ground beneath you, and while you may be busy thinking about your lie, you'll want to think about the contact your feet have with the turf almost just as much. Sure, a lot of golf shoes look like sneakers these days, but there are key differences that will make or break your round. For the wetter days, you can get spiked golf shoes, which will look familiar if you've been around golf for a while, but you can also pick from a multitude of spikeless golf shoes, that are more akin to sneakers but feature grippy, heavily-treaded soles lacking the pronged cleats you'll find on spiked shoes.
