Arnie Palmer, Rory Mac and Bill Murray would be the ultimate foursome.

Canoos® Designs Custom Shoe for 2017 Walker Cup Team

BOSTON, MA, September 8, 2017 — Canoos, the golf footwear innovator, announced this week that it has designed and provided custom golf shoes for Team USA in its upcoming matches for the 2017 Walker Cup.

Similar to the Ryder Cup, the Walker Cup dates back to 1922 and is a biennial competition between the 10 best amateur golfers in the U.S. versus the 10 best from Great Britain and Ireland.  This year’s event is being held September 9-10 at the Los Angeles Country Club.

Will Bacas, Canoos Brand Manager, said, “We’re very excited that the best amateur golfers in the country are going to be wearing Canoos.  Our working relationship with the USGA has generated great exposure for our brand—first at the U.S. Senior Open in Massachusetts this past summer and now in California at the Walker Cup.  The Walker Cup is one of the top spectator events in golf and we’re proud to be associated with the event.”

The Team USA shoes will feature the same design and patented golf spike outsole that Canoos uses for all of its canvas golf shoes.  “Just like our original boat golf shoes, the canvas shoes are all about providing a functional and fun alternative for golfers to wear from the course to the 19th hole and beyond.” Bacas said.

About the Walker Cup

The competition began in the wake of World War I, and came together following a series of meetings between the United States Golf Association and The Royal and Ancient Golf Club.  As part of the meetings an international team competition was discussed, with the aim of strengthening of understanding and friendship between The R&A and the USGA.  Among those attending the meetings at The R&A was George Herbert Walker, USGA president in 1920.  The idea of an amateur team competition appealed to Walker and he soon presented a plan and offered to donate a trophy.  When the press dubbed the trophy the Walker Cup, the name stuck.  The first Walker Cup Match was held in 1922 at the National Golf Links of America in Southampton, N.Y. Led by playing captain William C. Fownes Jr., the USA won the inaugural Match, 8-4. The USA leads the series 35-9-1.

The Greatest Hot Dogs in Golf From White Dogs to Polish Sausage, We Salute Them All

Golf. Summer. Hot dogs.

Try and come up with a better trifecta. We’ll wait.

While you’re thinking about it, we’d like to present some of our favorite hot dogs (and not quite hot dogs) found on golf courses across the U.S.A.

The Burger Dog at the Olympic Club in San Francisco, California

The most infamous hot dog in golf may not be a hot dog at all. The Olympic’s Burger Dog is really a beef patty formed to fit a toasted hot dog bun and slathered with cheese, onions, pickles and relish. Today, three stands dispense burger dogs across the Olympic Club’s course.

Chili Dogs at Mountain Lake in Lake Wales, Florida

It’s not hard to find hot dogs at golf course snack shacks. But the 11th tee at Florida’s Mountain Lake course serves theirs with a generous helping of chili. It may not improve your subsequent tee off, but it’s good for the soul.

Polish Sausage at the Spring Valley Country Club in Salem, Wisconsin

The Badger State is known for its hearty cuisine, so it’s understandable if a hot dog comes across as a touch too light for local tastes. Remedying that is the Spring Valley Country Club, which provides a meatier upgrade in the form of a Polish sausage between a split bun.

White Hots at the Country Club of Rochester, Rochester, New York

You’re not supposed to call it a hot dog. But the famous “white hots” native to Central and Western New York state are pretty close—they’re basically unsmoked hot dogs, which allows them to retain their white color. And there’s arguably no better place to have one than at the snack shop between the 9th and 10th holes of the Rochester Country Club.

Walter’s, Winged Foot Golf Club, Mamaroneck, New York

OK, so we might be cheating on this one. Walter’s isn’t situated on golf course property, but it is a five-minute drive from the Winged Foot Golf Club and well worth the stop. The shack, which has been operating for 98 years, serves a custom-blend hot dog that’s cooked with a secret sauce, split down the middle and covered in a house-made mustard.

FOR A LIMITED TIME ONLY: INTRODUCING THE PATRIOT The Latest Style from Canoos Is Red, White and Blue

If our Patriot Shoe celebrated a birthday, it would be the Fourth of July.

If our Patriot Shoe had a favorite book, it would be the U.S. Constitution.

If our Patriot Shoe sang, it would belt out “The Star Spangled Banner” so beautifully it would bring a tear to your eye.

Like America, the latest colorway of our Tours 3.0 Boat Golf Shoe™ is exceptional. We originally designed these special edition shoes exclusively for this week’s U.S. Senior Open, and all volunteers at the event will be wearing them.

But once we saw the finished product, we knew they were just too cool not to share with all our customers. So, we’re selling them in limited quantities online now up to size 14.

Anything less would be un-American.

“Can You Really Play in Those?”: With a Record Setting 8-under 64, We Rest Our Case.

We spoke with Keith Tyburski who recently set a new unofficial course record at Colgate University’s Seven Oaks Golf Club while wearing a pair of Canoos Tour 2.0 Golf Shoes.

Tell me about your score.

I parred holes 1-4, hole 11 and holes 15-18. In the middle, I kind of went nuts—one eagle, one bogey and seven birdies.

Seven Oaks is your home course, correct?

Yes. I coach golf at Colgate University. Seven Oaks is our home course, and it’s also the course I grew up on. I’ve been playing it my entire life.

What in particular makes Seven Oaks so challenging?

The most challenging component of Seven Oaks is the greens. They have a significant amount of slope and speed. You have to be able to access the green from the correct angle with the correct amount of spin to get close to certain hole locations.

So, it leaves very little room for error when approaching the green.

Exactly.

Did you set out specifically to beat that record? Or did it just sort of happen as you were playing?

No, it just kind of happened. When I went out there I was about as relaxed as you could be. I didn’t have a care in the world. And then I caught fire in the middle of my round. At the end of the day when the numbers were tallied up, I was like, “Holy cow.”

If you had set out with a goal in mind, do you think it would have been more difficult?

Being relaxed and not having any expectations definitely made it easier to achieve. I’m a college coach and I work with players to help them be as competitive as they can be. But for my own, personal golf, I completely disconnect from what I do on the career path. Golf is 100 percent relaxation. I would absolutely agree that being relaxed played a role in my success.

Did you still have a strategy or method that helped you set that record?

I’ve played a lot of rounds at Seven Oaks. And I’ve had a lot of rounds where I’ve gotten pretty far along in terms of getting under pars. As the round progressed and I became aware of what was going on, I thought, “Well, whatever you do, don’t play scared. Whatever the number’s going to be is what the number’s going to be. Just go out there and stay aggressive.”

How does Canoos work for you as a performance shoe?

As a coach, I’m in the office during the day and then I’m at the golf course in the afternoon. The Canoos shoe is great because I’m able to wear a comfortable shoe during the day and then go right to the first tee without changing.

I generate a lot of club head speed when I swing. The conventional thought would be that I need a very structured shoe that would keep me a little more stable, but the Canoos shoe doesn’t compromise one bit.
