We’ve all seen Sir Nick Faldo showing off the latest innovation in golf shoes — SQAIRZ.
The company has joined the fight against cancer with special edition men’s and women’s shoes — in support of the American Cancer Society, they come in dazzling pink with the cancer awareness ribbon on the sides — joining the “Real Men Wear Pink” movement.
It’s a natural progression — Sqairz company founder Robert Winskowicz lost a brother to the dreaded disease that has touched so many people world-wide.
The company is donating $30 to the American Cancer Society from the sale of every pair — the Speed — PNK for men and Freedom-PNK for women. Corporate goal is to raise minimally $100,000.
Sqairz are premium quality shoes and the special editions that benefit the American Cancer Society retail for just under $250.
In his commercial for the brand, Sir Nick tells us the proof is there — lab tests show the shoes can improve your balance and more distance can come as a result of better balance.

Danielle Kang One Shot Off Lead At Ladies BMW:

After rounds of 66-68 at the Lakes BMW in Busan, South Korea, Kang is 10-under par and just a shot behind co-leaders Hee Jeong Lim (67-66) and Na Rin An (64-69).
The player everyone will have to look out for over the weekend is world’s No. 2 Jin Young Ko. Ko opened with a 71 on Thursday to end her sub-70 streak at 14 straight but she bounced back in a big way with and eight-under par 64 on Friday that took her to nine-under par, just two shots behind the leaders.
World’s No. 4 Sei Young Kim found herself tied for 15th at five-under par while No. 3 Inbee Park is eight shots behind the leaders at three-under.
Jeff Winther Shoots 62 In Mallorca:
Denmark’s Jeff Winther is looking for his first European Tour win and he got off to a remarkable start Thursday at the Mallorca Open. Winther fired an eight-under par 62 on day one at Golf Santa Ponsa on the Balearic Islands.
Not a lot of big names in this event as most are waiting for the season ending events in Dubai — the Aviv Championship (Nov. 11-14) then the DP World Tour Championship (Nov.18-21).
