Adidas to sell limited-edition “Pimento Cheese” golf shoes

Published

on

There’s never an official winner announced, but every year there seems to be an unspoken competition between golf companies to release the coolest Augusta-themed apparel, gear, golf clubs or special offerings. As the year’s first major, The Masters drips in tradition, and the iconic green-and-yellow color scheme lends its hand to festive, one-off releases; it’s a perfect storm.

This year, Adidas is an early front-runner for most creative Augusta-themed product with its Pimento Cheese sandwich-inspired golf shoe. The $1.50 sandwich is an Augusta National/Masters staple (although I’m on record giving it only 3-out-of-10 azaleas).

The all-white colorway on the Crossknit Boost shoes represents the sandwich’s white bread, while the sock-liner is designed to depict the pimento cheese concoction. Hints of Augusta green are also visible on the heel and toe (for obvious reasons). Like the pimento cheese sandwich that comes in a green wrapper on Augusta’s grounds, the shoes will come with a green footwear bag.

Technologically, the Crossknit Boost shoes are made with a circleknit upper for breathability and comfort. They also have a boost midsole made from TPU (thermoplastic urethane) pellets for cushion and energy transfer, as well as a spikeless Adiwear sole for traction.

The Pimento Cheese-inspired, Limited Edition Crossknit Boost shoes will be available for $180 on April 3 at adidasgolf.com.

    I may grab a pair once on sale. Can see wearing it off the course too.

    OK? It is a white golf shoe with an orange liner. I have some Eccos that are the same. I guess that they were the Augusta version.

    Of course they did. Everything at Augusta is green, so the tmag guys have to outsmart themselves again. “Everyone is doing green”…”well, yeah, that’s their official color”….”but if we do green we’ll be the same as everyone else. Let’s do yellow instead”….”yellow? How do we sell that at Augusta?”….”We’re taylormade. They’ll buy it because we sell it.”

    Idiots

WATCH: PGA Tour players play hole blindfolded and it’s hilarious/amazing

Published

on

As part of a Srixon campaign, four PGA Tour players recently participated in a three-hole challenge, with each hole being a different game; hole No. 1 was blindfolded, hole No. 2 was costumes and distractions, and hole No. 3 was alternate shot with a baseball bat. The teams were Smylie Kaufman and Sam Ryder against Shane Lowry and Grayson Murray.

Watch the full video below, since it is quite entertaining (albeit not the type of golf that Old Tom Morris surely had in mind), but in particular, make sure to check out the first hole where Lowry and Ryder play a full hole completely blind folded. It’s amazing to watch how badly Ryder struggles, and how Lowry nearly makes par.

Cleveland-Srixon’s marketing department has been hard at work crafting these viral-esque ad campaigns; if you remember, former long-drive champion Jamie Sadlowski recently dressed as 80-year-old Grandpa Jamie to fool range-goers. That video has since gathered over 1.2 million views on YouTube.

Think you had a bad weekend on the course? At least you didn’t do this

We hope this golfer didn’t take the ultra-premium golf equipment plunge before sending his clubs to a watery grave. Either way, this was an expensive (and strangely calm) reaction to a bad round.

Tiger Woods battles terrifying deep-sea creature, wins

Published

on

With four tweets since July 21st, Tiger Woods is exposing himself on social media in a way we haven’t seen.

And with his latest tweet, he’s…exposing himself in a way we haven’t seen.

A shirtless-and-swimsuited Woods appears holding what he purports to be a lobster (but what looks more like a monster of the deep sea).

Nothing like it, indeed.

He’s lucky to have escaped with his life after battling that horrifying crustacean. Spiny lobsters, apparently, don’t have claws, but somehow that doesn’t make them any less terrifying, as they look poised to impale you and carry you off to their reefy lairs.

Not sure how big the beast in Woods grasp actually is, but it pales in comparison to this 14-pound creature from your nightmares.

14_pound_lobster_caught_near_Bermuda_0_48217534_ver1.0_640_480Anyway, Woods has been on something of a grand tour of late it seems, taking in a friendly version of El Clasico in Miami and posing with Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez.

All of this is good to see. It was two months ago that Woods entered rehab following his now-infamous Memorial Day arrest for impaired driving.

What this portends for his future on the golf course is unclear, but you’d assume the 14-time major champion is feeling pretty good if he’s free diving after monsters of the deep.
