As one of the top golf bloggers for over a decade, I’ve developed many great relationships with some of the best apparel brands on earth, and several other planets. After years of research, writing, and threads-on testing of golf apparel, I’ve developed my own sense of style. Unmatched, classy, unique, but not overstated, this is pure. This is style.

As you know if you are a regular reader of Hooked on Golf Blog, my favorite thing in the world isn’t golf, sex, money, fast cars, power…. Oh no. It’s apparel scripting. I have a new script which I’ve just put together with Linksoul, a very classy and high quality apparel brand by John Ashworth. Yes the same John Ashworth you may be familiar with from the Ashworth brand.
I’ve got a killer Linksoul pair of trousers and a golf polo to review. Since I have stubby legs and the trousers are long enough to fit Minute Bol, I have to get them tailored first before I can start the review.
Stay tuned for my review of this Linksoul apparel scripting, coming soon. To browse some of their great golf and life threads, check out the Linksoul Golf Apparel online shop.
I’ve got some new pants in for review, but I have a slight issue. They’re about a 1/4 mile too long. I think perhaps the pants were supposed to be shipped to Manute Bol and somehow ended up at HOG World Headquarters.
We’ll see if a tailor can make this look right, or will it look like I’m wearing a giant’s shorts?
I have to admit that now that college football season is here I’ve been spending a lot of time working on one of my other websites, UteHub.com. I’m a University of Utah Utes fan and built that site as a forum and fan “hub,” and it has been quite successful. I built a game there to allow the members to pick the weekly Pac-12 football games, called Pick Em. I have some neat prizes, and the grand prize is a custom belt from NXT18 Golf. Check it out.
I reviewed a milled belt by NXT18 Golf back in 2015. It’s a Hooked on Golf Blog version.

The new college version is a little more mature and cleaner looking I must admit. Plus it works with a standard belt, which is interchangeable.
My new Utah Utes belt is great. I’m wearing it proudly, even this moment. If you want a belt like this, or with your own custom logo of your favorite team or golf blog, follow this special link for a discount and free shipping.
For years I’ve been known as “Tony no pants.” Not by the ladies, but my golf buddies. Even in the coldest winter conditions I wear shorts. I have many reasons for wearing shorts. The primary ones are that I tend to get very hot in long pants. I often find long pants to be uncomfortable because I have thick, short legs. Heat, comfort, fit… Good reasons to avoid long pants. This summer I had to get my hands on some golf pants because a couple of the clubs I was going to play in Scotland required “trousers.” “Trousers” is UK speak for pants.
For a pant to work for me I figured it would need to have an athletic fit but be very flexible. Plus it would need to be NOT cotton. I’m not a cotton fan. It would need to be a polyester or spandex. Or perhaps a “poly-span” combo. Enter the Puma Tech pants. Just what the apparel scripter ordered.
My waist is a moving target depending on the time of year, and depending on how many people bring free donuts to the break room at work. I was happy to find the fit on the Puma Tech pants is flexible. A comfortable waist is a must and even with the ups and downs of the summer waistline the Tech Pants are always comfortable. The spandex/poly fabric stretches and moves with me, instead of resisting.

Speaking of spandex/polyester… The fabric on the Tech pants is 97% polyester and 3% spandex. The Puma formulation results in very light and comfortable pants which don’t get me too hot. As mentioned, heat and heat management is a real issue for me when it comes to pants. I’ve been more comfortable in these pants than any other long pants I’ve ever worn.
One reason for that comfort and coolness is the airflow created by the Puma 3D Cell fabric. If you look closely at the fabric, you can see each individual little cell, with gaps between them.
dryCELL technology in the pants wicks moisture away from the wearer. I need this.
Naturally Puma is on the hip end of the style spectrum. I know I’m sporting the latest in style and design with the Tech Pants. But at the same time these classic and classy looking. They work well on the course or at the office. And sometimes those two are the same thing.
On the Course or at the Office
When I have to wear long pants at the office these are a big help between the comfort and heat management. On the course, when I need to dress up a bit, I’m still comfortable.
I’ve got a black pair and a silver pair. I really love the silver pair. The color is great and the versatility is tremendous. Really with the black or silver I can wear nearly any color shirts or tops.
I don’t like to wear long pants. But when must wear long pants the Puma Golf Tech Golf Pants are my gamers.
