    So how much can I expect my handicap to drop by now that I’m wearing tour spec socks?

    The spec makes me think at least a 0.8 drop is on the cards
    The Tour Opti-Dri socks are perfect for playing this season. Callaway Golf have designed these socks to ensure the best fit and comfort which is critical whilst playing golf, with Opti-Dri technology which removes moisture away from the foot to ensure fast drying. Plus Opti-Vent fabrics allow maximum breathability, with an anti-microbial treatment that reduces odour. The socks have an left and righted aysmmetric fit, and have Opti-Stretch to ensure added movement. Finally the socks have 360 arch support, are cushioned, plus have an engineered heel for advanced comfort.

    Have you paid daft money on stuff just cos its golf?
    While your post is tongue-in-cheek, I have seen some people hobble off after 18 holes with badly blistered feet and some of them have suffered due to crap socks, nylon and other cheap materials can rub and cause all sorts of issues with your feet, blisters, smells etc, some of these issues can also be badly fitting shoes.

    £6.50 for decent sports socks really isn't that bad.

    What to do with winnings. Always been a big question for me. There is nothing I want or need (golfing wise) in makes that the proshop sells.

    at last, some support, I thought I was going to regret the impulse buy

    From hill-walking days in my yoof I remember seemless socks being important (pre my munro phobia of course) So there are definitely good socks and bad socks

    I've just never spent that much on a pair before so quite excited to show them to the wife later

    Try the price of sealskinz for the winter, man's greatest invention and worth every penny.

    Nothing wrong with "golf socks". Got a few pairs of these myself - cracking things - find them a lot more comfortable than "normal" socks to be honest.

    Sports Direct do Under Armour padded sole socks, 3 pack for about 12 quid I think and they're awesome.

    Wow, Just been to the website, what’s going on there…. £26 for a pair of socklets. What’s a freakin socklet! And some as much as £40+

    I think I’m safe now with that gear as a pricing benchmark



    Anyway what is this ‘win-ter’ you speak of, its shorts and tour spec socklets all year round

    Re: They're just socks!..... Or are they?

    I was given a pair of FootJoy socks for Christmas and they're the most comfortable socks I've ever owned. My golf hasn't improved but I think that's because my socks are not compatible with my Adidas shoes.
