Damage control - TurfNet.com

I read an interesting article this morning about the impact of "soft" spikes on greens.

I do not remember this being a significant problem at Pine Orchard, but have definitely seen it at other clubs.
Have you noticed any damage from aggressive alternative spikes? Have you tried the less aggressive shoes made by Ecco or Nike?
Share your thoughts and observations.
I watched a bit of golf over the weekend, and with Pebble Beach coming up I am starting to get more excited about golf in 2012.
