Bogey Is Life Golf T-Shirts

A new fad in golf is t-shirts, for the millennial crowd I suppose. Maybe it’s the Top Golf thing. A new brand in the T space is “Bogey Is Life.” Bogey Is Life makes a few comfy casual apparel pieces like this one below, as well ask long sleeves, tank tops and hats.

Bogey Is Life

I’ve been enjoying this T around HOG World Headquarters and the fabric is super soft and comfortable. It’s a “tri-blend” of 50% polyester, 25% cotton and 25% rayon.

The name is inspired by the creator of the brand, an average golfer.  Average golfers shoot bogey golf and probably worse if they played by the rules!

At only $24.99 direct from the Bogey Is Life website, this is a great golf related Father’s Day gift idea that dad can wear on or off the course.  For us golfers who shoot better than bogey golf though I wonder when the “Birdie Is Life” version comes out?


Antigua Vista Pullover Review

Lately I’ve been greatly enjoying and needing to put into play my new Antigua Vista Pullover.

Antigua Vista Pullover

Antigua Vista Pullover

Right now in northern Utah we are in what I call the “decoy spring.” Some days it’s warm, some days its cold. Some days it’s 80. Some days it snows. There are lots of days between where a light pullover layer is just right. I’ve been gaming the Vista on the course and at the office as I’m right under an air conditioning vent.

Vista Details

  • 100% polyester
  • Desert DryTM moisture wicking heather twill knit
  • 1/4 zip pullover with contrast taping & dyed to match cover stitch detail
  • Stand up collar
  • Open bottom & contrast zipper placket
  • 3D silver reflective Antigua logo
  • Five colors available
  • Sizes up to XXL

On The Course

On the course this pullover has been fantastic and a real lifesaver.  Right now it’s just cold enough that a simple golf polo isn’t enough.  Once you get the chill it’s hard to hit good golf shots and enjoy the round.  The Vista has provided a perfect layer of protection.

The fit of the Vista works very well for me.  I bend over fairly far to putt, not quite Michelle Wie style, but pretty far.  Baggy and loose fitting outerwear often gets in the way of my putter grip and often catches, sending the putts off line.  The Vista somehow fits closely, but comfortably and loose enough that I can move.  The sleeves are a perfect length and during the golf swing there’s no pulling or restriction.

I’ve used the stand up collar several times already, to help keep my neck warm and keep the elements out.

Price Point

Perhaps the most amazing thing about the Vista is the price point.  A quick Google search pointed to me to an outlet which hat this piece for only $59.00.

Conclusion

The Vista by Antigua is a great way to take the edge of a slight chill in the air.  This would be a great option for golf in spring or fall, southern California in the spring, or Scotland just about any day of the summer!

Father’s Day is coming up.  The Vista would be a great choice for the golfing dad on your list.

“Skullicious” Tattoo Golf Lucky 13 ProCool Golf Shorts Review

“What are you doing in there?” the lovely bride inquired. “Counting the skulls on my new shorts,” I replied. 

Hats off to Tattoo Golf for shaking up the golf apparel world and making it more fun and less stuffy.  Love the rock-&-roll attitude and of course, based on the HOG logo, I love skulls.

Lucky 13 ProCool Golf Shorts

Speaking of skulls, I’ve been sporting Tattoo Golf’s “skullicious” Lucky 13 ProCool Golf Shorts.  I counted them up, and there are about 100 skulls on the outside these shorts, right up my alley.  If you count the inner waistband, there are closer to 200 skulls.

Specs, Style, Performance

Tattoo Golf could rest on its laurels and be satisfied with making the golf shorts with the most skulls on them, but that’s not how they roll.  TG isn’t just a gimmick brand.  These are real “pro” level shorts.  The 100% polyester ProCool fabric is super-light and comfortable and provides moisture wicking to help keep the wearer cool and dry, whether on the golf course or at at Mastodon concert.  The style is 100% Tattoo Golf.  100% cool.

The shorts perform brilliantly for me on the golf course, adapting and stretching with every granny over the top dual chicken wing part of my seizure-like unfolding lawn chair golf swing. And trust me, that’s not easy to do.

Caring for these shorts is as easy Freddie Couples’ golf swing.  The polyester doesn’t shrink and doesn’t wrinkle.  Wear them right out of the dryer, which you can use freely.

Final Thoughts

As Tattoo Golf says, these shorts are lightweight and heavy in style.  I like my style and my rock and roll heavy.

Devereux Cameron Golf Polo Review

I’ve been sporting some “proper threads” from golf apparel and lifestyle brand Devereux.  Say hello to the Cameron Golf Polo.

About Devereux

Devereux is an excellent golf apparel brand.  Every product I’ve checked out in the line is superior quality.  The fabrics, designs, and comfort in the Devereux brand are the highest quality available.

Cameron Golf Polo Details

The Cameron is a fantastic polo comprised of 96% polyester and 4% spandex.  The “air-flow knit” of the fabric is a combination of two knitting styles.  The knit is designed to air condition the wearer and help regulate the body temperature.  The fabric provides “moisture wicking” which is the process of drawing moisture (sweat) from the body and moving it to the outside of the fabric, where it evaporates.

Sizes/Colors

The polo comes in two colors, Agave (pictured) and Waves, a blue and white stripe.  Sizes for the Cameron include: small, medium, large, extra-large, and double extra-large.

On the Course/On the Town

The style and comfort of the Cameron are fantastic, whether I’m crushing massive drives on the golf course, writing Blogizer Prize winning golf reviews, or coding at work.  In the golf swing the shirt moves with my body, even in the strange jerky un-natural contortions my dual chicken wing granny over the top move has.

Final Thoughts

Total comfort, performance and style are why the Devereux Cameron golf polo is the real-deal.  At $85 the Cameron isn’t the least expensive polo out there, nor is it the most expensive though.  The Cameron is as good as any high-end polo I’ve worn.

Father’s Day is coming up.  Pick up pops a Cameron and he’ll be the most stylish and cool person in his group.

aahSoles Green Coral Flip Flops

Finally the temperatures are rising to the point where after a round of golf I have no desire to replace my golf shoes with shoes and socks. Flip flop season is upon us, with the occasional northern Utah decoy spring snow storm. I’ve been happily wearing my Green Coral flip flops by aahSoles, shown below.

Funny name, yes. Funny look, yes. Fun marketing for sure and that’s all I thought aahSoles was about until I wore them. The footbed of these flip flops is tremendous. The material pattern/texture gives my feet an amazing massage with every footstep. I’m trying to figure out how to wear these to work.


The texture, along with perfectly designed straps, making the act of walking easier than any flip flop or sandal I’ve ever worn. No slippage and no irritation of the toes.

Conclusion

I had some Vans flip flops which were my gamers, but now they’re in the backup bag.  The gamers are now ahhSoles.  Sounds dorky, but I can’t wait to wear them again.  This could be the best $30 investment ever.

Father’s Day is coming up. These would make a great golf or non-golf related Father’s Day gift idea and very reasonably priced too.
