In the last few years the shoes that Tiger Woods wears have risen to legendary status. The sight of Tiger wearing red on a Sunday and along with his trademark Nike shoes creates one of the most iconic images in sport. We take a closer look at what the man himself has been wearing on his feet during 2020 and help answer the question – what golf shoes does Tiger Woods wear?
Tiger’s first competitive round in 2020 came at the Farmers Insurance Open where he finished T-9. It was here that he was spotted wearing the limited edition Nike TW20 golf shoes, varying between the black and white versions during the week.
As expected Tiger continued with the TW20s at The Genesis Invitational in February but sadly it was a 68th place, 11 over finish for Tiger.
The Nike TW20
The Nike TW20s build on years of design insight and feedback from Tiger himself, directly to the R&D team at Nike. A lush foam midsole cushions every step whilst providing exceptional levels of stability. The shoes also feature a carbon fibre composite plate in the sole, which allows for consistent power transfer during the swing. The zoom air unit which is incorporated into the shoe gives a more responsive cushioning underfoot. Simple branding which also includes Tiger’s logo internally makes an incredibly stylish yet functional golf shoe.
The Nike ‘Frank’ edition TW20s
Soon after the Genisis Invitational, COVID-19 struck, and Tour play saw a hiatus until May when Tiger teamed up with former NFL quarterback Peyton Manning for Capital One’s The Match: Champions for Charity. The pair took on Phil Mickelson and Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady.
It was whilst in The Match that we caught sight of Tiger’s limited edition ‘Frank’ logo TW20s. There were a number of nice features on the shoe including tiger stripes within the Nike swoosh and the ‘Frank’ logo on the heel.
The limited edition ‘Frank’ TW20s are fitted with Champ Pro Stinger steel spikes that Tiger has used for years and in the heavy rain at the Medalist Golf Club appeared to keep him dry, and provide solid grip levels and traction.
