New spikes

| Golf

I never realized how much a difference new spikes for my golf shoes would make. Not that my game has improved the slightest bit (darn), but just the idea that these brand-new objects are adorning the bottom of my shoes makes me feel better for some reason.

To be fair, they do make me feel like I am slightly taller and my stance seems steadier when I swing the club on soft ground, but then again I could just be imagining that.

In the olden days we actually had metal spikes and they made this fantastic scraping sound when you walked across the parking lot or on the paved pathways.

Now spikes are made of this durable plastic which isn't as nice, but I guess it damages the greens and indoor carpets much less. I'm wearing Nike spikes, wow!
