Easter Festivities yesterday included a round of golf (a.k.a. searching for the white round Easter egg), and a nice Greek style family get together. What’s a perfect pair of shorts that works great on the course, and for Easter dinner right after? What pair of shorts looks great, stylish, classy, but still features a lovely bouquet of skulls? Tattoo Golf Lucky 13 ProCool Golf Shorts of course!
It was fairly warm yesterday too and the fabric of the shorts helped keep me cool, at least physically. Stay tuned for my full review of the Lucky 13 ProCool golf shorts soon. A few more rounds of testing to go.
This photo of Rory McIlory sums up how I’m feeling about my golf game at the moment.
The word to best describe my golf game right now is probably the most-used word by President Trump: disaster. After four+ months of not even swinging a golf club over the winter, the golf game has gone into deep hibernation. Come to think of it, I don’t think I even looked at a golf club in four months.
I’m not sweating it too badly because I know every spring it takes a while to get my game back. I’m sure by the time winter comes and it’s time to shut it down again, my game will be getting close.
Okay this has taken some time but I’ve had a change of heart about Rickie Fowler. When Fowler first hit the PGA Tour it seemed like the only notable thing about him was his orange jumpsuit, or what I like to call the “traffic cone” apparel script. Here it is below.
After this year’s Masters though I’ve changed my tune about Fowler. First I watched some of the pre-Masters interviews and was impressed. Then I saw Rickie on Thursday morning at the ceremonial tee shot, which was just Jack Nicklaus and Gary Player. This was the first time Arnold Palmer was missing following his passing. In my opinion, a historic moment in golf. There may have been, but I didn’t see any other tour players who made the effort to attend that ceremony.
At that point in time I realized something. Rickie gets it.
During the Masters he played very well and ended up in the 2nd to last group, paired with Jordan Spieth. Rickie was at the top of the leaderboard even during the final round, before Justin Rose and Sergio Garcia separated from the field.
So this is an official HOG-style hats off to Rickie Fowler. Looking forward to his first major win. Hopefully it comes before 73 attempts unlike Sergio’s did.
I’ve just launched a new search and search results page here at Hooked on Golf Blog. I used to have a Google site search but I’m not too thrilled with how it worked, and despite having pages of results, the page wouldn’t scroll.
So I’ve put in my own search which is on a look-and-feel level with the rest of the site theme. Try it out. The search field is usually in the upper right of each page.
Here are some fun search terms to punch in (example results for articles featuring “big boobs” in image below):
I’m going to be sporting some proper threads for my apparel scripting today (if you don’t know what apparel scripting is, use the search function here). The latest in my golf apparel review queue is the Devereux Cameron Golf Polo.
Devereux Cameron polo
The photo doesn’t really do it justice. The colors and look are much better in person. Maybe I’ll post a selfie later today. That’s what the young kids do these days.
I’ll be putting this golf polo to the test and posting a full review soon, so stay tuned.
