Hello, this is Conan Elliot and I'm director of instruction here at Camas Meadows Golf Club in Camas, Washington. Today we're going to talk about how to remove stuck golf spikes. Well, first of all, a little word of preventative maintenance there, goes a long way. And that's when you buy your shoes that have screw-in spikes that are metal, or once in a while those spikes should come out. And a little Vaseline be put on that, on that threads or in that hole, so that those don't rust. And screwing it in, what happens is they do actually go in. There's actually a tool that goes in the end of a tool, of a drill that takes spikes out. But, that only really works really well if the spike is loose and natural in there. If the spike is stuck, we really need to use the hand tool with very long spikes on the end of it. So, we can really get in against that spike, for example, this one here. Where that goes into the hole, and we really have to put some pressure on that, 'til you can get that to loosen. Then when you pull that back out, it'll finally break loose. I've seen it where actually you lose the shoe or the ability to put a new spike in that shoe, right there, you see, that filing came loose. Another thing that's on the new shoes that you purchase, the new slip end, one-twist lock. Work much better, they're plastic and you don't have that rust problem. This is Conan Elliot and that's how to remove stuck golf spikes.
