While watching the Tuesday practice round at the Masters this week we followed Fred Couples around on hole #9 and hole #10.  We noticed the Ecco shoes and that he was wearing had no spikes. In fact my dad popped some pictures of the shoes (left).  He does this to help reduce the impact of walking on his bad back.

On hole #9 we watched Freddie bomb his drive far past three flat bellied younger players.

What can we learn from this?   Are spikes or regular golf shoes overrated?  Perhaps.  I know if I don’t wear spikes I slip all over the place because my weight and balance is shifting so much.  Freddy’s balance and center is so good, that he doesn’t slip.
