In golf, a game that requires serious mental fortitude, players will take extra confidence however they can get it. For Keegan Bradley, that confidence comes from his shoes.

Bradley says the specially-made elephant-print kicks served as motivation.

“I’m excited to wear his shoes and be part of [Michael Jordan's] brand,” he told reporters. “Just wearing these shoes makes me a little bit cockier, little more ready to win.”

Unfortunately for the Americans, it doesn't seem like the shoes had that much of an effect on Bradley. He and partner Phil Mickelson lost on Day 1 to the international duo of Louis Oosthuizen and Charl Schwartzel.
