Growing up in Mexico City, Oscar Fraustro was surrounded by lush green golf courses. When his family moved a little further north, he became more curious about the world of golf. Picking up the game at age 12, Oscar turned his curiosity into extreme talent as he grew older. In 2004, Oscar was an All Conference player at the University of South Florida. From 2003 to 2005, he was the top-ranked amateur in Mexico. After turning pro in 2006, he was named “Rookie of the Year” on the Mexican Tour. Following this success, he played the Gateway Tour and the Asian Tour, among other pro tours around the world. Oscar’s ability to play successfully around the globe against the game's elite has reassured him that he made the right decision to pick up golf all those years ago.
WHY HE CHOOSES TO #LIVETRUE
"TRUEs give me the best feel and balance through my swing, plus they’re the only golf shoes I have ever worn that I can keep on for hours after finishing a round. They are so comfortable, and that makes a huge difference after playing a few weeks in a row and spending countless hours on the golf course." Oscar loves all of the styles that TRUE has to offer, but he is currently wearing the TRUE motion. He believes they have all the characteristics of what he looks for in a shoe.
Q: What sparked your interest in golf at such a young age in Mexico?
A: "Pure curiosity. I was always playing sports (soccer, tennis, rollerblading, etc) and after joining a newly built Country Club with 9 holes, I decided to try it. At the time I had a cast covering my entire left arm, (I broke my left wrist rollerblading) so my first few swings were with one hand!"
Q: You’ve had a very successful international career, who or what would you say contributed most to your success?
A: "I left my house to come to the U.S. without speaking English, to a golf academy when I was 17. I had to learn to be comfortable while being out of my comfort zone very early. Now, I feel at home as long as I am in a golf course."
Q: What goes into your selection process of footwear and how important are your shoes for your game?
A: "They are the contact to the ground, so these shoes are just as important as any part of my equipment. I am a feel player, and I love the bare feel of TRUEs that keep me closest to the ground and give me instant feedback on the surfaces and motion of my swing. I want a shoe that gives me the confidence to swing as hard as I can without limitations, while providing balance and feel. TRUEs accomplish that and more!"
Q: Is there any piece of advice you would offer young aspiring golfers?
A: "Patience. Not only on the course during a round, but with your practice and development. It’s in our nature to want everything right away, especially when we are young, but in order to succeed in golf you need perseverance and patiently wait for your hard work to come together and get the results you want."
