Speaking on the Adidas Waterproof Tour360 XT Primeknit, global footwear director at Adidas Golf, Masun Dension stated

“We’re always working on creative ways to infuse both comfort and performance into a golf shoe. With the TOUR360 XT Primeknit, it checks all the boxes, giving players an extremely comfortable – and dry – wear throughout their round, while also giving them the support, traction and stability they need as they play. It also offers a unique look to help them stand out on the course.”

According to the company, the shoe is designed to provide ultimate comfort and breathability, while the new footwear also incorporates forging technology, which is the process of heating the upper in a bid to provide more stability around the midfoot without adding weight.

The shoe also features an eight-cleat X-Traxion outsole, which the company claims is the best traction system it has made to date, while rounding off the shoe is the full-length BOOST midsole, which is designed to provide an added level of comfort and energy return.

The Tour 360XT Primeknit is available to purchase now at adidas.com and select retailers and arrives in three colorways: grey, black and active teal.

The shoe comes with a one-year waterproof guarantee and costs $180.

    I wish more companies would widen the toe area a bit. Is anyone’s foot actually shaped like a triangle? These would be a buy for me if they would fit.

Brooks Koepka hits out at the “stuffiness” and “country club atmosphere” attached to golf

Published

on

Never one to pull punches, Brooks Koepka has slammed the “stuffiness” and “country club atmosphere” associated with golf which he feels is damaging the progression of the sport.

In an in-depth interview with GQ Magazine, the four-time major champion discussed a multitude of topics, and Koepka explained that the “gentleman sport” tag attached to golf is one of the reasons preventing more people from getting involved in the game.

“Hockey, you go to blows and then sit in the box for a couple minutes. Golf’s just held to a different standard. Because it’s supposed to be a gentleman’s sport. And that’s where I think they lose a lot of people. They just do.”

Asked what he would change about the sport if he had the chance, Koepka was quick to sound off on the “stuffiness” and “country club atmosphere” which he believes is one of the biggest problems the sport has in attracting more support.

“One thing I’d change is maybe the stuffiness. Golf has always had this persona of the triple-pleated khaki pants, the button-up shirt, very country club atmosphere, where it doesn’t always have to be that way. That’s part of the problem. 

Everybody always says, ‘You need to grow the game.’ Well, why do you need to be so buttoned-up? ‘You have to take your hat off when you get in here.’ ‘You’re not allowed in here unless you’re a member—or unless the member’s here.’ Really? 

I just never really liked the country club atmosphere. I know that drives a lot of people away from liking me. But just ’cause this golf club has such prestige and the members are all famous and have a lot of money…like, why can’t I show up and just go play the golf course? Why do I have to sit in my car and wait for the member?”

The 29-year-old further explained how he doesn’t feel like no rules would be the answer, but how a more relaxed approach would prevent the feeling of “walking on eggshells” when at a golf course.

“I’m not saying no rules is the answer. But it’s like, you want everyone to enjoy themselves when they’re there, you don’t want to feel like you’re walking on eggshells when you arrive at the golf course. I don’t like feeling like I’m walking on eggshells everywhere I go.”

Brooks Koepka is in action this week at the Honda Classic and will tee it up alongside Matthew Wolff and Keith Mitchell for the opening two rounds.

European Tour pro reveals that he is currently blocked by Patrick Reed on Twitter

Published

on

On Tuesday in the Twittersphere, European Tour pro Eddie Pepperell revealed that Patrick Reed has blocked him on the social media platform.

Pepperell dropped the news in a casual tweet where he said

“(From what I’m aware of) Two people have blocked me on Twitter. Patrick Reed, and Jameela Jamil. Interesting couple they would make! (I was also once blocked by a namesake sports writer from the Guardian but he’s seemingly unblocked me now… Joy)”

Back in December, following Reed’s waste bunker controversy at the Hero, the Englishman slammed the 29-year-old in a tweet asking “What the f–k were you thinking?!” – which likely didn’t go down well with the 2018 Masters Champion.

While it appears Pepperell and Reed aren’t exactly on the best of terms, Bryson DeChambeau is one notable name who has backed the Texan.

Following Reed’s impressive WGC-Mexico win, DeChambeau told Golf Channel that himself and Reed sometimes get a bad rap and that “we understand each other’s pain sometimes.”
