Crazy as this may sound, since birth you might say I’ve been a bit of a ‘sock freak’. Growing up, the average lifespan of my cotton socks was a matter of weeks. Once they lost that new feeling or started balling up in the heel or toe, they were history.
Without even realizing and by no fault of my own, I’d become a sock snob. Over the years I turned into a sock enthusiast.
The idea for a golf compression sock was a combination of two things; a lifelong love of the gentleman’s game, as well as a passion for endurance sports – namely swimming, cycling and running.
Having traded in a job in the golf industry for standard desk job, I made a point to spend every free moment outdoors and embracing an active lifestyle and competition.
When not in the office, I found myself either training, racing or recovering. As the years began passing by, I quickly learned that the recovery process is a true science and instantly fell in love with compression clothing and the benefits it provided.
Terms like “thermoregulation”, “reduced muscle oscillation” and “increased circulation” were no longer scientific or theoretical; they became a part of my daily life as compression clothing became a tool in my arsenal, as important as my running shoes, swim cap or bicycle.
Compression socks have become commonplace for endurance athletes, but still haven’t become the norm in the golfing world. When speaking with long-time golf enthusiasts, friends on the PGA Tour (and their caddies), this was something they all seemed intrigued by.
From that moment, my interest was piqued and within weeks went into creation-mode regarding the first PRO Compression prototypes.
Anyone who’s walked eighteen will tell you all about the fatigue experienced by day’s end, yet there’s so much focus on gimmicky ways to better your swing as opposed to focusing on increasing endurance.
If you truly want to up the level of your game, it seemed like a no-brainer to me –invest in the most important part of your golf game; your body.
