Be distinctive on the course with Nobis headwear

Send feedback »
Golfers wear a lot of hats. But they don't wear a lot of kinds of hats. Or at least, they don't anymore. There was a time when some golfers were known as much by their headwear as by their swings. Hogan had his ivy cap, Snead had his coconut straw h… more »

Slammin' Sam Beer is a smooth, refreshing homage

After a promising start to the golf season, my game has gone straight to the dogs. And not nice dogs, either – junkyard dogs, with rabies. How many times can I start out 5 over after three holes? That was a rhetorical question. I already know the… more »

Nothing understated about Royal and Awesome golf wear

Watching John Daly rock the Loudmouth golf pants at the PGA Championship makes me think of another brash golf clothier from the other side of the pond -- Royal and Awesome. Think that a British outfit will be more understated than its Yank counterpa… more »

Energy Athletic: Making negative into positive

Sometimes it's hard to write about golf shirts: Shirt X feels good, looks good, doesn't give me a rash. It's a winner! I mean, really, what more can one say? So when a couple of shirts by Energy Athletic landed on my desk, I was happy to see that… more »

Trump International Golf Links Scotland is spectacular and controversial

How much great linksland in Scotland is still undeveloped? This is a question of considerable debate, but when a new links course opens somewhere in The Home of Golf, inevitably the claim is made that it is "the last great links course" in Scotland.… more »

"Dad" and "duffer" both begin with D -- Father's Day gift ideas

Send feedback »
My father has never set foot on a golf course. He doesn’t wear ties, either. As a result, I have no idea what to get him for Father's Day. Fortunately for me, he tells me every year that he doesn't want anything. If your own dear old Dad isn't as lo… more »

As I was putting together this list of golf-related Mother's Day baubles, doo-dads, and gizmos, my wife said to me, "Why are you doing this so late? Any decent child or husband would be done shopping by now." All I could say was, "Of course, Dear, y… more »
