Quick quiz: Who is the all-time best amateur in the history of golf, and who happens to have the same name as one of the best golf apparel brands on the planet, and who also was the founder of Augusta National Golf Club and the Masters Tournament, and whose photo is the only photo on the wall above my workstation at HOG world headquarters?
Bobby Jones is my favorite golfer in history, with Jack Nicklaus a close second. I wish I could have met the man before he passed. It would have been a lifetime event. Bobby Jones is also one of my favorite apparel brands and I’ve reviewed many of their fine pieces. See some links at the end of this post.
I almost didn’t want to post this in order to give myself a better chance at winning this, but Bobby Jones apparel is running a Masters contest. Pick the winner and have a chance at winning a $1000 Bobby Jones gift card. I could melt a Bobby Jones gift card in seconds. SECONDS!
If I don’t win, I hope you do. If you do win, my shirt size is XL. Just sayin’.

Bobby Jones XH20 Aero Golf Polo
My current outerwear script features this new Carnoustie Sportswear Quarter Zip Suede Vest. My color is “Bordeaux,” which is a good match for my evening adult beverage scripting. The other color available in this product is Grape. Love the color names.
- 100% cotton, lining 100% polyester
- Lining for extra warmth
- Covered zipper treatment
- Classic fit
- Hand or machine wash, cold water, gentle cycle
I may actually wear this vest at Carnoustie golf links in Scotland when I visit in July, which is ironically cool.
Stay tuned for my full review.

Stableford Jacqard Luxe Polo by Bobby Jones
This is a fantastically comfortable cotton polo which I’m wearing for the 2nd time now. Today’s post is an introduction to give me time to fully review this polo on the course and out on the town. Stay tuned for my full review soon. Along with this polo I have a pair of trousers and an unreal mint green jacket which I’ll be covering during Masters week. Stay tuned.
One cannot be too prepared. Proper prior preparation prevents piss poor performance. I’m officially prepared for my club’s upcoming 4th of July tournament with my new Royal and Awesome American flag golf shorts. Just look at these beauties.
These shorts feature a great graphic pattern, the flag of the greatest country in the world. Sorry England. Another neat feature is an included divot tool and a place on the side of the pants to put some golf tees (pictured).
My only question so far in these stars and stripes shorts is, “where do the batteries go?”
IJP Design Black Watch Sweater
I’ve been enjoying the first few days wearing this new IJP Design (Ian James Poulter) Black Watch Golf Sweater. It has been very cold here in northern Utah and this sweater has been doing a fantastic job keeping me warm, stylish and comfortable off the course.
As soon as the snow melts I’ll put this brilliant looking sweater into actual play and post a full review. Until then, here are some specs.

• Durable textured chunky knit with shawl collar
