If you’ve ever found yourself wondering what it would be like to be in London hitting a few golf balls off a floating barge on the River Thames, then you’re not alone. Yesterday, PGA athletes Sergio Garcia and Dustin Johnson did just that — teeing up a near the iconic Tower Bridge. Why? To celebrate golf’s reintroduction into the summer games in 2016. Golf has not been an official Olympic sports since the 1904 games in St. Louis Missouri. In commemoration, Adidas’ “core energy” red Adidas Tour360 ATV shoe is being worn by athletes competing at the Open Championship at Royal Lytham & St Anne. It may be 4 years left before the 2016 games, but by our count, that leaves you with plenty of range time to earn your way into a pair since these won’t be available for purchase.
