PGA Tour pro Scott Piercy was doing something a little bit peculiar in between shots playing his third round at the weather-delayed 3M Open at TPC Twin Cities.
Piercy, 43, is in search of his fifth PGA Tour win and found himself in a strong position heading into the final round in Minnesota, holding a four-shot lead.
Yet it was a bit of a struggle as a new pair of shoes had caused a "nickel sized blister" on his foot. The American pro was taking off his shoe in between shots up until the 14th hole.
It did look a bit funny, if we're being honest.
Still, it worked out alright.

He later told the media: "Yesterday I wore a new pair of shoes and kind of rubbed my heel, kind of a dime-sized, nickel-sized blister on the back of my heel. [I] tried to do some stuff last night to doctor it up to get ready and just every move the shoe made was painful, so I just took it off.
"[It] didn't hurt to walk without it, so I just put it on when I hit and seemed to do okay."
He added: "When you walk that weird, you kind of -- your body kind of adjusts, so putting the shoe back up on and trying to get set up over it correctly, I felt like I couldn't get into my setup like I normally do and I felt that's like where a couple of the loose shots came from, along with the tiredness. But, you know, hopefully get a good night's rest tonight and ready to go tomorrow."
Piercy looked in a commanding position heading into the final round.
