Holiday shopping for golfers on the edge
I love Jennifer Mario, and would love to have her pick out holiday gifts for me. I feel the need to suplement her list, though, with one of my own. I call it, warmly, holiday shopping for golfers on the edge. Traditionalist that I am, I will ennumerate with Roman characters.
I. New Golf Bag–Ogio. Dudes make skate and snow board stuff, as well as BMX and Motocross gear. Enough said. Check out the Grom bag, the lime green one.
II. Wedges–Bad Ass Golf. Beside their hard-hitting name is a tricked-out website that borders on the risque. All right, it is risque, especially the girl on the hog. When it comes to scoring clubs, you might try some BadAss wedges.
III. Shoes–Bite Shoes. Sandal golf shoes, hiker golf shoes, sneaker golf shoes, bowling golf shoes. You name it, they make it, with panache and style.
IV. Clothing-Copley Apparel. I like these guys as much as j.lindeberg. David Branshaw, the guy who won the Nationwide Tour Championship this year, wears Copley. Thought he looked good in it at Rochester, before I knew what he was wearing.
V. Hats–VillageHatShop–All right, I wholesaled this one. It’s hard to find hat makers. As we know, the best golf hats are always borrowed from other sports, or are flat-out goofy ones.

Here in Colorado, "the edge" for us is:
1. a cart cover
2. propane heater
3. Winter gloves AND mittens. Safety orange is a bonus.
4. Wedges with less than 6 degrees of bounce.
5. Heavy putters. Mallets.
Oh, and a hip flask of your favorite whiskey derivative. Scotch, specifically JWB, for me.
Are you guys at Travelgolf.com taking note? I'll be happy to forward my address. If you send these out now, they'll arrive just in time for X-mas...
Agreed! Here in western New York, from which I hale (irwin, that is), we are in the same icebreaker. If only we could see the fairway. We need the following clubs in our bags: one shovel, one coal shovel, one pick, one drill, and one broom. Who needs 14 clubs? If we wear safety orange, the deer shoot us! Seriously, have you seen those heated pads for carts? You attach the clips to the battery, and they heat your bottom. No lie. Balls Out Blog guys is the one with the money and the Santa Claus belly, so write to him. Tell him I sent you.
Not worried about keeping my bottom warm with it, though. I'm worried about my balls...golf balls, that is.
