Tiger Woods has always been diligent about picking the best equipment for him. His shoes are no exception. He’s currently sporting Nike Air Zoom TW71s, and it’s no secret that these have helped carry him back to competing with the best in the world every tournament. With a victory in the 2018 Tour Championship, which gave Woods the 80th PGA Tour win over his illustrious career, Woods proved that he can win again when the pressure means the most on Sunday. He’s often referred to as the greatest golf “closer” in the history of the game. The win in that tournament was his first on the PGA Tour since the 2013 season. Heading into the 2019 campaign, he owns 14 major championships, second on the all-time list behind Jack Nicklaus’ 18.

Many golfers wear special shoes. The shoes can be spikeless or with spikes attached to the soles. The spikes can be made of metal or plastic (plastic spikes are also known as “soft spikes”) designed to increase traction thus helping the player to keep his/her balance during the swing, on greens, or in wet conditions. In an attempt to minimize the severity of spike marks made on greens, many golf courses have banned metal spikes, allowing only plastic spikes during play.
Spikes on most golf shoes are replaceable, being attached using one of two common methods: a thread or a twist lock. Two sizes of thread are in common use, called a “large thread” and “small thread”. There are two common locking systems: Q-LOK and Tri-LOK (also called “Fast Twist”). The locking systems use a plastic thread which takes only about a half turn to lock.
