The University of South Florida Bulls Women's Golf team really knows how to grab life by the horns. Maria Rodriguez must have run out of tees but she's a resourceful player so just has teammate Maria Merchan assume the position and then blasts one off her derrière. Incidentally Maria's bro Carlos plays on the Latin American PGA Tour.
Carnoustie, the British Open rotation venue in Angus, Scotland needs no introduction. The California based Golf apparel brand of the same name, over century its junior, traffics in timeless style, fine fabrics, and clothes fit for the links but sophisticated enough to handle your next social outing.
Carnoustie’s performance knits offer the best of both worlds offering the soft feel of natural fibers along with the moisture wicking and UV ray protecting hallmarks of golf sportswear. The silky smooth polos are made of a high-end micro poly and lycra blend, perfect for those craving a soft, comfy fit without sacrificing the technical benefits of sportswear.
Their new polo line is subdivided into a trio of collections. Classic concentrates on a red, white and blue aesthetic, for those looking to bring some patriotic punch to the golf course—a popular motif to rock in a Ryder Cup year. Meanwhile Desert contrasts parched landscapes with orchid purple and citrus orange and let the good times roll by rocking daiquiri green or yellow number from the Resort collection.
CEO Marshall Mancillas is certainly stoked about the collection and its nods to yesteryear: “The use of self collars and placket detailing can do a great deal to update the look of today's polo. I am having fun going retro. As a designer it is always inspirational to look at the past and reinvent it for present...much of the styling we see today is grounded in the looks of the 70's."
It often happens on the range. Days after making a small adjustment that at first seems to cause mechanics to regress and go south, suddenly halfway through a bucket of balls…everything clicks. Muscle memory takes the wheel, rhythm comes back, and a swing feels more fluid, more automatic and as consistent as a piano pendulum. It’s a feeling golfers striving for game improvement relish with aplomb.
Sure, watches are more about wrist bling than utility these days but you can’t pop your phone in your boardshorts while riding swells. Aulta hangs ten on the surf lifestyle wave with this hardened mineral crystal, stainless steel, screw down Miyota movement perfect for keeping tabs on when it’s about time return to the beach.
This Aulta’s army green band also matches nicely with turfgrass. Personally, I’m content to let time stand still when I play the game. I don’t like the feel of anything, no matter how light, impinging on my wrists when I swing. But post round while hitting the 19th hole if I’m going to pop one on, a minimalist number with big digits for easy reading like this makes a lot of sense.
