Today’s apparel script: Greg Norman ML75 Golf Polo
Day one of my rigorous testing of the Greg Norman ML75 Golf Polo. Phase one is the “in office” test. Phase two will be the “on the course” test this afternoon.

Today’s Apparel Script
I’ve been a big OGIO fan for years. Love their design creativity and thoughtfulness when it comes to golf accessories, bags etc. Naturally I was intrigued when I found out they’ve started making apparel. For today’s shift at the office and this afternoon’s round I’m sporting an OGIO Roller polo and OGIO Groove golf shorts.
OGIO Roller Polo
OGIO Groove Shorts
So far I’m really digging the OGIO Roller Polo. The shirt is 100% polyester, but is softer than any cotton shirt I’ve ever worn. The shorts are killer too. Very comfortable.
Stay tuned for a detailed review soon.
Quick, give me a word that rhymes with “Dunning.” For me the word would be “stunning.” Stunning is exactly what the few pieces of Dunning apparel I’ve seen are. I first noticed the brand when I met my now buddy Kevin Foley of Web.com Tour fame. He’ll be of PGA Tour fame if he holds his current position of #17 on the Web.com Tour money list. I’m not sure if Kevin is endorsed by Dunning or just loves their threads. Either way. The first time I saw his threads I was sold.
Stretch Pique Multi Stripe Polo – Style
Naturally based on that I was excited to get my first Dunning apparel review opportunity. When I unboxed the Stretch Pique Multi Stripe Polo (from this point on known as SPMSP), I was stunned.
Dunning Golf Stretch Pique Multi Stripe Polo
My lovely lady and I both let out an “oooh” when we first saw it. This is a beautiful polo. It stands out in my massive golf wardrobe. The photos on Dunning’s website don’t do this polo justice. Mine here does a little better capturing the colors, but you really need to see it in person.
The SPMSP is made of 50% Technical polyester and 50% polyester. I have no idea what the difference is between technical and regular polyester is.
I can tell you that the materials provide fantastic comfort. In very hot and humid conditions, like I’ve been experiencing recently, this polo breathes very well and helps keep me dry.
Playing golf or simply working in the office while wearing this polo is a joy. The comfort level combined with the flexibility and fit of the fabric is…. stunning.
At $95 this may not be a golf polo for everyone. But I’d say the price is well worth it. This polo is tops in all three of my top apparel rating categories: style, comfort, performance.
Here is yet another brilliant golf apparel script from yours truly, my 2013 PGA Championship rendition. My recent gound-breaking release of my Masters apparel script and then my THE PLAYERS Championship apparel script sent golf PR companies scrambling. My scripts blew theirs away… This one is the best one yet.
In my 2013 PGA Championship apparel script (pictured above) I’ve brilliantly covered all the bases. I have all apparel items nicely picked out. They’ve been painstakingly chosen, matched and arranged. Rather than using my own incredible Nikon camera and lens setup, I hired the city’s #1 photographer to do the shoot for me. No small details ignored.
I decided that since I’m going to be watching the PGA Championship glued to my couch, I should simply have all the apparel script items there as well. That way I can accessorize or change ensembles without missing a minute of the tournament.
Yes I realize that Puma, TaylorMade/Adidas, Nike Golf, Ashworth, Antigua, Dunning, and all the other golf apparel companies will likely steal my idea and use it for their future golf apparel scripts. I’m sure we’ll see Tiger Woods, Rory McIlory, Justin Rose, Rickie Fowler and the rest sporting these same scripts in the next big golf event. I’m fine with that. Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.
Antigua Santa Fe Men’s Golf Shorts
In my last golf blog post I reviewed the Antigua Men’s “Quiet” polo, a very stylish and comfortable shirt. A perfect match for the shirt are the shorts I’m wearing even as I write, the Antigua Men’s Santa Fe Shorts.
Santa Fe Overview
Santa Fe is an artsy city located in New Mexico, approximately an hour north of Albuquerque. Santa Fe is the capitol of New Mexico with a population of 68,642. Oh wait, I’m reviewing Santa Fe shorts, not the city…
Santa Fe Shorts
Antigua’s $50 (retail) Santa Fe Shorts are a combination of 95% polyester and 5% spandex. No cotton, which is a very good thing. No wrinkles, no shrinking, no ironing, low maintenance.
The shorts employ the same Desert Dry technology as the Quiet Polo, a technology which pulls moisture from the player’s skin and helps it evaporate, keeping the player dry and comfortable.
A styish “contrast piping detail” runs down the side of the leg.
The Santa Fe Short is available in five colors: Black/Steel (pictured), Navy/Apple, Smoke/Melon, Steel/Margarita, White/Steel.
On The Course
These are some of the most comfortable golf shorts I’ve ever worn. They’re very light on the skin and lightweight. I can definitely attest to the Desert Dry technology, as I feel nice and cool with no excessive moisture, even in some very hot 100+ F rounds.
Even with sweaty hands getting in and out of the pockets is easy.
During the golf swing I feel no tight spots or binding anywhere. The swing is free of restrictions.
One pair of Santa Fe Shorts is most definitely not enough. I could replace all the billions of shorts in my wardrobe with these. I just might. I have yet to find a better combination of style comfort and performance in a pair of golf shorts.
