Few golf pros wearing spikeless golf shoes

The majority of pro golfers have not followed the example set by US professional Fred Couples, who plays in spikeless shoes.

Couples led the Masters after the first round in 2010, and narrowly missed out on repeating the feat in 2011, wearing spikeless golf shoes without socks.

However, his fellow pros such as Justin Rose, Sergio Garcia and Jason Day have stuck with traditional spiked Adidas golf shoes.

Many professional golfers, who swing their clubs as fast as 125mph, have been reluctant to switch to spikeless shoes for fear of losing traction while hitting shots.

The design of golf shoes has become a major part of the game in recent years as Ian Poulter showed by posting a picture of the six pairs he took to Augusta for the Masters on his Twitter site.

Take a look here.

Nike also chose the Masters to showcase its new range of golf shoes with Stewart Cink sporting the limited edition pair with a green Nike swoosh during the event.
