These new kicks from Oakley Bubba Watson wore on university day at the Farmers Insurance Open last week are great.

In fact, they looked so sharp and were subtle enough that I wish he'd wear them more often.

Watson finished T23 for the tournament but shot a Saturday 73 in the shoes so he probably won't superstitiously go to them anymore this year. 

If that had just been a 63...

Also, he announced on Tuesday that he would wear a neon green shoe for the Phoenix Open.
