It appears that the golf industry's shoe manufacturers don't understand the "less is more" concept. They have actually turned a good thing bad. When soft spikes came out, it was amazing, you could play in the afternoon with little or no disruption from spike marks. Then, someone figured if a little traction was good, bigger and deeper spikes with plastic triangles in between must be better! Now, greens look like war zones after a few hours, and the turf that is pulled up is larger than it was with metal spikes.
Please be considerate to your fellow golfers, be aware that someone may have to putt where you are treading, so tread lightly. Remember, "soft" spikes are a thing of the past, they are not so "soft" anymore.
