The Golf Sandal has been a moderate trend among women for the past 10 years. If you are a man (you are not off the hook ladies!) and have a pair of "golf sandals", might I suggest reevaluating your golf goals. The actual "golf sandal" is an oxymoron, much like a "basketball sandal" or a "soccer slipper" - it is not performance gear. You are subliminally accepting a 5-shot penalty when stepping on the first tee wearing "golf sandals". Kobe would never step on the court (even in practice) ready to play in sandals, neither would Tiger.
I hate to be the one to break this to those of you who "rock" them, but REAL golfers don't wear "golf sandals". You are breaking over 50 fashion rules and desperately crying out for help. They are the farthest thing from "cool", and even further distance your chances for "breaking the course record".
FACT: As you are hitting a few practice putts on the ol' putting green around the first tee, people are actually laughing at you through the window of the golf shop. Don't let yourself be a victim of the golf sandal.
