Foot Orthotics for Golf

What do you do with a golfer and the need for foot orthotics? Golf involves a lot of walking, so they need a reasonably firm or rigid pair of foot orthotics to control the foot during that activity (assuming that foot orthotics are indicated). The crucial part of the golf game is the swing. The swing stance involves a reasonable amount of inversion and eversion of teh foot to be done efficiently. How much does a rigid orthotic with a rearfoot post interfere with that motion and affect that efficient golf swing? Foot orthotics for golf are going to have to be a compromise. It is surprising how often this issue comes up on some golfing forums for discussion.
