It's free pair of shoes available, Golf Shoes: In an enchanting Masters Thursday that began with the ceremonial run by Arnold Palmer and Jack Nicklaus, and ended up with a nice if not quite the triumphant return of Tiger Woods, it was left to Fred Couples and Tom Watson to create a new wrinkle.
The 50-year-old Fred Couples Masters lead after one round with a 6-under-par 66, playing the same weapon he used to win three Champions Tour events: solid execution, surgical continue. Watson, now 60, came on his valiant '09 British Open with a 5-under-par 67, the first time he has broken 70 here since 1987.
But the pair began to hundreds of heads Thursday in Augusta, Ga., the second he walked out of the clubhouse wearing a pair of golf shoes that looked like something a pro skater would dawn with a low-riding pair Hurley pants. It also looks like he forgot to take his socks.
