Kristy McPherson of the USA plays her tee shot at the par 3, 5th hole during the first round of the 2011 Kraft Nabisco Championship on the Dinah Shore Championship Course at the Mission Hills Country Club on March 31, 2011 in Rancho Mirage, California. sat down with Kristy McPherson to talk about a piece of her wardrobe that most golfers might not think about too often, SOCKS.


How important are socks to your golf wardrobe?
Socks are our livelihood. We are on our feet all the time. I'm not just saying this because Kentwool is my sponsor but it is the best sock out there. All of girls out on Tour that have tried them will tell you. When you are on your feet all the time you better be comfortable. I think everybody has played with a blister or two and sees that it affects your golf game and you can avoid that.

What's the difference between the Kentwool sock and a regular sock?
It's the only sock that goes straight from sheep to sock. They spin it right there. Mark Kent the owner who is making the sock was asked what price range and he said, "I don't care. Make the best sock you can." And that is what he's done. They've made the best sock. It's got padding, cushioning and made from the best material. The cushioning is in all the right spots. You don't think a sock can really make a difference but it does.

Do you think socks are the forgotten accessory?
I think when people get blisters they remember that they probably should've worn good socks. People might not think about it until something bad happens. I've been with Kentwool for two years and I've never worn anything different since then.
