Can my jogging shoes used as spikeless shoes

Nowadays i seen many golfers wear spikeless shoes. many brands offers great colour and style...but does it give the same type of grip on the ground like those soft spike shoes ??



If it is so...than i can used my jogging shoes as it just have more grip on the base than a spikeless shoes...



What everyone think ???

From my simpleton understanding...spikeless shoes may work well with Bermuda grass as Bermuda grass tend to be upright and the grass sticking and pointing upward will create fiction thus keeping the golfer grounded. But spikeless on cow grass may not create as much grip as Bermuda grass.

Jogging shoes on the other hand may seems to work well with both as jogging shoes soles have different grooves and hinges.

Just my 2 cents worth

Cool

Jogging shoes has less grip on wet grass. Rubber when wet is slippery.

It's for your own safety, wear the ones with spikes.

That day at NSRCC, one senior man fell, got injured and were unable to move. Was sent to hospital. Definitely you don't want to be the next one.

Usually the problem is not on flat ground, it is when u are on slope, uneven ground or wet surface. Take care!

Agreed with NG. spikeless has pro and con. comfortable and light. but not very grippy on certain grass and slope. I still prefer metal stud.
