PGA Show: Damon helps out at the PUMA booth
Yankees centerfielder Johnny Damon, below right, was on hand Thursday in the PUMA booth to greet fans and help support the launch of the company's newest golf shoe, the Swing GTX.
Instead of spikes, the Swing GTX has 38 molded "quills" that are strategically placed to provide traction. According to the company, the shoes are easier on greens but still provide a very solid grip during full swings.
Damon did not model the shoes, but he played his role as spokesman perfectly, sipping a beer and chatting up visitors while decked out in PUMA gear.
