I mean I understand and I get it yeah better traction but I have been playing better with regular tennis shoes on. Do you think if I lace some spikes up again my score will improve.

Maybe your cleats were too rigid for you. You could switch to soft spikes which feel a bit more like tennis shoes. I'm sure the added traction of soft spikes over your tennis shoes couldn't hurt ;)

Definitely have to look into that. I've been without clear for a year now and it hasn't affected my game much. When do you do the Jordan golf shoes giveaway??

Ecco makes a nice hybrid .. the only time a feel that I need to wear spikes is when it rains and the courses is wet. I like the added support

I'm on he same boat as you. If it had been raining and grass is still slick then that's the time I wish I had cleats but other than that I feel comfy in running shoes

I played in trail running shoes for a while with no noticeable difference. With that said, I currently use True Links Wear Sensei's Got them a few years ago on clearance and they are still performing well. Probably try some Nike spikeless next for the athletic feel.
