Nike to release Air Jordan III golf shoes on Feb. 16

Published

on

This year marks the 30th Anniversary of the release of Tinker Hatfield’s 1988 Air Jordan III shoes; you know, the ones Jordan wore when he dunked from the free-throw line. In case you needed a reminder, or just wanted to see the video again…

So for the 30th anniversary, Nike is releasing a bunch of different Air Jordan III designs that you can check out here. As part of the collection, Nike is also releasing Air Jordan III golf shoes on February 16. The golf-specific versions are made from leather and have the iconic elephant print designs, full-length Lunarlon midsoles, and golf spikes on the soles. They come in both White/Cement and Black/Bronze.

    Saw a guy in pro am with these on a few weeks back. He was tall and slim…looked like he had moon boots on. I just got a pair of $200 adidas shoes for $67 on closeout…save your money people!

    Any golf shoe that comes above the ankle does not do it for me. Just because they have cleats doesn’t mean they pass as golf shoes. They are still basketball shoes if you ask me. You could put spikes on cowboy boots too I guess.

    LOL at every single one of these comments saying these are ugly. They weren’t ugly when they came out nor now as one of the best selling Jordan models. If nike wants to try and broaden the golf market by adding throwback shoes with golf spikes/traction….take my money. I don’t need another pair of saddle shoes to make me look like I’m 70.

    I am really getting old because I remember when Nike made really cool shoes.

    • What?!?

      Feb 2, 2018 at 8:52 am

      These were made in ‘88….and still a classic. One of most desirable Jordan’s ever.

Rick Shiels shoots +41 in 3-round pro-am tourney. GolfWRX members discuss.

Published

on

There’s no way to sugarcoat this: Rick Shiels’ golf game did not travel with him to coastal Spain. Sorry, Rick, (who is by all accounts a great guy). The YouTube personality, instructor, and club reviewer extraordinaire teed it up in the three-round Costa Daurada International Pro-Am at Lumine Mediterránea Beach & Golf Club in Spain.

Shiels carded rounds of 88, 88, 79 to finish at 41 over par, last in the field of 17 golfers and seven strokes worse than any other pro.

Not surprisingly, GolfWRX members are discussing the popular YouTuber’s performance and asking some tough questions.

Londoner writes

“This is not intended as a bashing thread. We have all had rounds where it felt like our first. But I thought pros had some level of consistency cracked. Ric hit 41 over for 3 rounds in a pro am…
The winner was +2. How does a pro unravel like that?”

Cornwall1888 suggests

“He’s simply not very good, that’s why he makes money from YouTube and sponsors, not playing golf. He’s probably a 2 or 3 handicap who had a terrible week.”

Stumpnav continues the thought that Shiels may simply not be a good tournament player

“I think Rick spends most of his time at the range using his launch monitor and not enough on the course. He knows how to play swing but not how to play golf. Doesn’t diminish his instructional ability or the enjoyment of his channel.”

Hawkeye77 doesn’t think the scores necessarily reflect his abilities as a player

“On vacation with his family, little or no play or practice in winter, not all that surprising. I’ll bet anyone he played with had a great time.”

Plenty, like Merkury10, defended Shiels and offered potential explanations

“All pros can have a stinker like that. We just aren’t watching them on Sunday. They either missed the cut or played the early tee time not televised. I agree with what was said earlier. I suspect he spends the majority of his time in the hitting bay and not out trying to shoot low scores. Rory 5 putted this weekend, and he’s no Rory.”

03trdblack has a theory about where Shiels is deficient

“Serviceable swing but his chipping and putting are pretty bad. He’s a driving range pro that lives on the GCQuad instead of on the practice green.”

There’s much, much more to the discussion and plenty of hot takes on both sides…and plenty of folks who loved or hated the new Driver vs. Driver panelist before he fired three miserable rounds. In other words, you’ll want to check out this thread.

And it’s neither here nor there, but still worth disclosing, Shiels contributed to this site in the past. You can see his archive here.

Jordan Spieth is a disgusting, pathetic thief, according to Billy Hurley III

Published

on

Allow your boiling blood to cool, golf fans. While Billy Hurley III did in fact call Jordan Spieth disgusting and pathetic (among other things), it was all in good fun. And believe me, you’ll have no regrets about clicking through to this article.

Spieth and Hurley are both running for chairman of the PGA Tour’s Player Advisory Council which, not surprisingly, advises Commissioner Jay Monahan on policy decisions.

Davis Love III is the current PAC chair, and the election to determine his successor ends February 13. In a calculated 11th-hour attack ad, BH3 tore into his opponent in this brilliant satirical video.

Spieth, for his part, enjoyed the Golden Man’s spot.

This is hilarious stuff. Really, really well done. Hurley has long been a favorite at GolfWRX for his brand agnosticism, and he gave us a hell of an interview back in 2015.

Well played, Mr. Hurley. You’ve got GolfWRX’s vote.

Lee McCoy blasts Colombian golf fans, claims they harassed him for his hat, shoes, other “free stuff” during tourney

Published

on

Lee McCoy, wasn’t exactly pleased with fan behavior at the Web.com Tour’s Club Colombia Championship in Bogota, where the tied for 20th.

Now, we can’t vouch for the decorum outside the ropes at Country Club de Bogota. One’s tempted to remember some of the clueless spectator antics at the Olympics in Brazil last year. That said, there’s the PGA Tour Latinoamerica and both Web.com and PGA Tour events in South America where we assume fans are acting appropriately, so painting with a broad brush in any color doesn’t make sense.

We’ll stick to the facts, then: No Laying Up’s Tron Carter tweeted the following pair of emojis Sunday night. He appeared to be responding to a since deleted tweet, which we can assume was the one screenshotted in his following tweet.

In a seeming rebuttal to McCoy’s claims about fan behavior, and as a suggestion for how professional golfers ought to interact with spectators, the co-founder of ProTraj Holdings tweeted a shot of tournament winner, Ben Taylor signing autographs.

McCoy deleted his Twitter shortly thereafter.

We attempted to reach Lee via his management, TLA Worldwide, but did not receive a response. McCoy did, however, offer the statement below to Golf Digest.
