No, this is not an official Nike shoe designed or endorsed by the bastion of Nike on the golf course — Tiger Woods.
But if you want to attract some attention on the course in 2022 or you’re simply a huge Tiger Woods fan, well, there’s a new Air-Max design headed your way.
This pair of Nike Air Max 1G, isn’t out there for public consumption yet but spies have broken the news regarding this new, upcoming design in 2022 offering from the land of the Big Swoosh.
These golf shoes have a suede and faux-fur design on the upper part of the shoes, inspired by the stripes on a tiger’s coat, no not any coat worn by Tiger Woods.
The soles are much like the well-known Air Max 1 design but waffle-patterned outsoles are replaced with golf-course-appropriate traction.
No release date as of yet but they should be available sometime in the next four or five months of 2022.
These get our vote as an attention-getter on the course for 2022.
Trump UK Golf Properties Hit By COVID:
The Trump Organization got into golf in the United Kingdom in a big way over the past decade. But apparently the COVID pandemic has taken a toll on those golf properties.
Despite 3.3 million pounds in emergency relief from the UK government during 2020, the Trump properties at world-famous Turnberry and not-as-famous Balmdie showed losses of 4.7 million pounds according to reports from the UK newspaper — The Guardian.
Turnberry lost 3.4 million pounds after making a profit of 321,000 pounds in 2019. Losses at Balmedie were 1.3 million in 2020 with losses in 2019 of 1.1 million pounds.
Trump International near Aberdeen has lost money for nine consecutive years.
Then there’s the controversial Brexit challenge. Brexit wasn’t great for Trump personally. According to a financial disclosure filed with Scottish authorities and signed by Eric Trump, Brexit “impacted our business as supply chains have been impacted by availability of drivers and staff, reducing deliveries and availability of certain product lines.”
The filing added: Turnberry has since seen higher prices, which have “increased from additional freight and import duty charges. Staff availability has been a challenge from a combination of wage inflation with retail and logistics sectors increasing wages to attract staff due to increased business levels. The staffing pool has been reduced with lack of access to European staff for businesses in general resulting in greater demand for individuals previously available to the resort.”
PGA Of America Reaches Settlement With Trump Organization Over Moving Of 2022 PGA Championship:
When the PGA of America decided to move the 2022 PGA Championship from Trump National in Bedminster, N.J. after the January 6 riots at the U.S. Capitol, naturally a lawsuit followed.
On Tuesday, the PGA of America announced it had reached a settlement with the Trump Organization.
No doubt a very large amount of money was wired to the Trump Organization but the terms were kept confidential as part of the settlement.
A few days after the incident at the Capitol, the PGA of America membership voted to move the 2022 championship to Southern Hills in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
The PGA of America released with syrupy statement:
“The Trump Organization’s contribution to the golf community is appreciated. We are thankful the company employs hundreds of dedicated PGA Professionals and consistently gives back to the golf community through hosting charitable events and sponsoring junior golf programs,” adding The Trump Organization has a portfolio of “some of the finest private and public golf courses anywhere in the world.”
From the Trump side of the settlement, the former President’s son, Eric added this:
“We have great respect for the work of the PGA. Over the past 20-plus years, we have enjoyed working with the PGA to deliver to our club members and the public some of the greatest golf experiences anywhere in the world. We look forward to continuing to support the mission of the PGA and its Professionals, who are the best in the golf industry.”
