Golf is a popular sport or activity for participation and for competition. It attracts millions of dollars in sponsorship and prize money (and a few controversies!). There are a lot of golf forums on the web for discussion of golfing and related issues. Foot orthotics for golf do raise some issues when they are indicated. On the one hand you need a fairly supportive foot orthotic to control the foot over the long distances that get walking during a game of golf (and unless you are a pro, you have to carry or pull the extra weight of the golf clubs). On the other hand, the rearfoot area of an orthotic for a golfer needs to be reasonably flexible to allow for the side to side motion that happen in stance during a golf swing. Just what needs to be done to help the golf biomechanics is always going to be one of compromises between these two competing considerations.
