Lots of golfers scour the Internet for used golf gear they can get for a bargain. Most of those golfers do not compete on the PGA Tour. Zac Blair does.
Blair wore a used pair of vintage leather FootJoy golf shoes during the third round of the Memorial on Saturday at Muirfield Village. The 26-year-old PGA Tour pro, who shot a 71 in round 3, bought the shoes on eBay. Blair tweeted about the purchase early Saturday, thanking the “random guy” who sold them to him and saying the transaction was “in the running for best purchase in history.”

Blair turned pro in 2014 and has yet to capture his first PGA Tour victory. His best finish in 2017 was a T8 at the Shell Houston Open.
