Removing Metal Golf Spikes
In previous eras, golfers who were serious about their game always wore golf shoes with metals spikes to get added traction when they hit the ball. Metal spikes were very effective when it came to helping a golfer avoid slipping when they swung their clubs and hitting the ball poorly. Today, golfers still wear spikes, but they are not of the metal variety.
Most golf courses and clubs will not let golfers wear metal spikes because they damage the course. Removing metal spikes is a simple matter of having the right tool.
Align the spokes of the wrench with the notches in the spike.
With downward pressure, twist the wrench counterclockwise. Keep turning until the spike comes out.
