My all time favorite golfer? Not Tiger Woods or Jack Nicklaus (though Jack is a close 2nd place). That distinction belongs to Bobby Jones. Mr. Jones was quite possibly the best golfer ever. Since he retired from golf at age 28, we will never know how many major championships he would have won. When he retired at 28, Jones had 13 majors. Compare that to Tiger who at age 38 has 14. Do the math. Jack and Tiger might have had another dozen to catch Mr. Jones.
Bobby Jones was not only a great golfer, he dressed the part. Decades after Mr. Jones passed away the Bobby Jones apparel line continues the classy tradition. The line is celebrating its 25th year in business.
XH20 Aero Polo by Bobby Jones – click to zoom
Today’s subject is the new Bobby Jones XH20 Aero Polo. Lets take a look.
This polo is made from a proprietary polyester and lycra blend. These are two great fabrics for sport/golf performance in my book. They provide high moisture wicking, no shrinking, durability, comfort, and most of all easy care. Not much needed in terms of ironing and maintenance. Wash it and lay it down flat to dry.

I really dig the Bobby Jones polo line up. The XH20 Aero Polo is very classy. The color scheme is fantastic. The black/green is such a great combination. I just realized this is almost the exact same scheme as the HOG logo and website theme. No wonder I like it so much.
Along with the great scheme, there’s the knitted collar. Inside the 3-button placket is a little embroidered Bobby Jones figure. Nice.
On The Course/At The Office
The comfort level of this polo is fantastic on the course or in the cube.
The look is very sharp. During the golf swing the polo does not bind or pull anywhere. I’m free to swing in comfort with no distractions.
The Bobby Jones XH20 Aero Polo at $85 is a mid-range priced high performance polo with style to spare.
I have a few other Bobby Jones apparel items to review so stay tuned.
Big money game coming up later this morning. Normally I wouldn’t take any chances with new gear but this is the best golf sock maker on this planet, Kentwool. Today’s sock script is their new Men’s Sport edition.
Kentwool KW Men’s Sport Socks
These are a little departure for Kentwool. Normally their socks are made from 100% wool. These are a combination of bamboo and wool. I’ve tried bamboo socks from other brands over the years and liked them. Bamboo is one of the most eco-friendly materials in the world.
Father’s Day is coming up soon. I’d definitely consider Kentwool socks for a great Father’s Day golf gift. I happen to be a father, so take the hint…
After sufficient golf rounds with these I’ll post a full review. Stay tuned.
Today’s apparel script features the Oakley “Delta” Polo. I was quite comfortable in my regular business capacity today, and caught a selfie opening the fridge. You may recognize this shirt as the same one Bubba Watson was wearing during the final round when he won the 2014 Masters Tournament.
Bubba wears the shirt winning the Masters. I wear it opening the fridge. Both great accomplishments in our own worlds.
Stay tuned for my full review of the Oakley Delta Polo after I’ve had a chance to test it out on the golf course.
Look who photobombed my morning golf apparel script. None other than Mr. Bobby Jones himself!
Bobby Jones XH20 Performance Poly Polo
I’m happy to be working with Bobby Jones Apparel, a brand I’ve greatly respected for a long time, on some upcoming apparel reviews. Today’s first look at the XH20 Performance Poly Polo is the beginning. The color of this polo is very hard to capture photographically. It is called Pique. The color is an orange/coral/pink combination. The photo above captured more of the orange of the garment, but looking at it on my body right now I’d say the coral/pink hue is missing a bit. This is one you have to see in person.
Looking forward to my Bobby Jones Apparel reviews coming up. I’ll put this and a few other Bobby Jones pieces through the ringer, pun intended, and post my findings soon.
Father’s Day is coming up. Looks like a good Father’s Day golf gift idea.
Check out this polo and a few other Bobby Jones pieces in the new HOG Bobby Jones Apparel photo gallery.
Today’s golf belt apparel script gives us the first look at a belt maker called Nexbelt. A golf friend referred Nexbelt to me and I’m happy to make the connection.
Nexbelt Men’s Golf Belt
Nexbelts have a combination of three excellent and convenient features:
Nexbelts all come in one (very long) length. The belt is custom cut down to size. This a fantastic, as many belts I have are just barely the wrong fit.
If you look at the belt photos in this post and in the Nexbelt photo gallery, you’ll notice the belts have no holes. A ratchet mechanism secures the belt and also allows for a perfect fit which is neither too tight or too loose.
Hidden Ball Marker
The belt buckle serves as a doorway to a hidden ball marker. Blow your friends away with this James Bond 007 ball marker setup and for the ladies, including bling.

I’m now in the testing and evaluation stages and will post my review soon. First impressions and conclusions are that my pants are not falling down. So I have that going for me, which is nice.
