PGA Tour pro Zac Blair is still buying golf shoes on eBay

January 22, 2018

If there's a PGA Tour pro who appreciates the value of the dollar its Zac Blair, who honed his golf skills playing money games growing up in Utah. But Blair also appreciates a classic pair of golf shoes. Especially when he sees them on eBay.

On Monday, Blair proudly showed off his newest kicks.

Not too shabby. And last year, Blair purchased these bad boys eBay:

The thought of buying used shoes might not seem appealing at first, but it has its advantages. Obviously, there's the low price (we assume) and the ability to find models that haven't been made in years (decades in this case?). But you also don't have to worry about breaking them in before taking them for a spin in a tournament round.

Blair could bust out these brown beauties at this week's Farmers Insurance Open at Torrey Pines. Regardless of how he plays in them, though, it doesn't seem like they'll be his last online bargain.
