While watching the OHL Classic at Mayakoba last week, I noticed that Tour player Michael Putnam wears Lunar Control 2 golf shoes. Michael joins a group of several Tour players that have chosen Nike Golf shoes at some point including Gonzalo Fdez-Castano, Kevin Stadler and Keegan Bradley (now officially sponsored by Jordan Brand).
I asked Michael via Twitter if it was his choice or if he had a deal with Nike and he quickly and kindly responded that it was by choice. I just find this really cool because the Lunar Control 2 is definitely one of the most comfortable golf shoes I’ve ever worn, and for a guy like Michael Putnam, who could wear any shoe on tour, he picked the same one that many of us wear. It’s also really cool that he was so quick to respond to my inquiry, so thanks Michael!
