As the daylight between Day and the rest of the leaderboard broadens there’s still one super tight tussle going on—the battle of the coolest belt. Jordan Spieth’s style is typically drab and underwhelming but on PGA Championship Sunday at Whistling Straits he is sporting a woven leather belt that pops with flecks of the full grayscale range ($39.99.) Meanwhile awesome Aussie Jason Day is rocking a gunmetal black Adidas Trophy belt with the tri-striped logo popping in corrugated metal that rings the register at $50.
So, got a new Twitter Follower the other day, Bikini Golf: "Our mission is to bring a contemporary edge to golf by broadcasting energetic 9-hole competition from spectacular courses across the world, where our athletic and attractive women golfers compete for “skins” while wearing sporty and stylish bikinis."
Greenville South Carolina’s Kentwool rings in the first Major Championship of the year with the limited re-release of the Bubba Green Tour Profile.
These comfy merino wool and high tech WINDspun fiber ankle high golf socks are a Masters jacket shade of verde with flagstick yellow in the toe and heel for a fresh look that says you’re serious about your game but have a carefree edge. So why’d they bring Bubba’s happy feet coverings back now?
“Shortly after we introduced this style in 2012 Bubba rocked the socks on his way to that dramatic victory,” says Kentwool grand poobah Mark Kent. “We just have to bring it back to commemorate that special occasion and we hope to see a repeat performance.”
Watson isn’t the only PGA Tour stud that wears Kentwool, the long laundry list includes Matt Kuchar, Jonathan Byrd and Brendon de Jonge.
Asher Golf continues to punch up the style game. Check out my full write-up over at AmongMen or enjoy my video review below.
There’s one in every foursome. The guy who routinely plucks a few blades of grass, and then painstakingly observes as gravity does its thing and they fall back to the ground. The hallmark of this pre-shot routine tends to be an inquisitive expression followed by an “I just discovered nuclear fission” grin. When pressed he’ll tell you he’s just taking mental notes on how to adjust his aim in accordance with the wind’s speed and direction.
While feigning meteorological computations is taking things a little overboard for most of us, deciding to pull on a windbreaker when the breeze starts to display some serious bluster is much less of a schmuck move.
