Hey, I’ve got some new shoes on! Suzann Pettersen has been playing some good golf of late but perhaps she had a little extra help with her game on Wednesday thanks to some new kicks she was wearing.
Pettersen, who made nine birdies and two bogeys in her round of 65 on Wednesday, has been practicing at home with a new pair of the Nike shoes, which haven’t been released to the public yet. But this week marks the first time that she’s been able to wear them in competition.
“That's all I've been playing with over the last few months,” Pettersen said of the shoes. “I got the green light to put them on in a tournament this week. Feels like I'm right at home. Very, very good shoes. It's the female version of the Tiger Woods shoes. They're very comfortable. I must say I actually feel the greens a lot better because the foot is fitting a lot better in the shoe. Very, very happy with that.”
