I need some casual shirts to wear around HOG World Headquarters while writing or shooting gear pictures. You know, something comfortable and golf related.  Enter Weekend Warrior golf tees.

I needed a tee shirt that says "golf" with the Old Course in St Andrews in the background!

These tees are 100% cotton. I’m not big on cotton anymore. I prefer polys and spandex over cotton because of the durability, easy care, and the fact that they don’t shrink. That said these tees are very comfortable and fun.

I love the golf themed shirts. I even got one for the little guy, Seve. He’s still a little too small for it but he loves to wear his beard tee shirt over his jammies.

These tees are fun.  Best of luck to Weekend Warrior and let me know when you get some non-cotton shirts in.  I’d love to feature them.


Golf Apparel Review: Greg Norman ML75 Golf Polo

I’ve been diligently testing two Greg Norman ML75 golf polos recently. I’ve put them through the rigors at the office, through many golf rounds (high and low), laundry batches, and cooking sessions making killer Greek dishes for dinner. Let’s take a look at the ML75 features, then look at how it performed in those varying environments.

ML75 Features

  • Super fine microfiber polyester yarn
  • Moisture wicking
  • Easy care
  • Aerated knit collar
  • Aerated knit inserts
  • Shark on bottom hem
  • Ultraviolet protection factor 20+

Sizes and Colors

The ML75 comes in many different patterns as well as solid colors.  Too many to list, but the two I tested are a great looking striped purple and striped black (see both photos).

Sizes for the ML75 include small, medium, large, extra-large, and double extra-large.

On The Course, In The Office, In The Kitchen, Out On The Town, In The Laundry

First and foremost this polo is great on the golf course.  I’ve now worn it in all sorts of conditions, including 94 degree temperatures with nearly 100% humidity.  In the high heat and humidity the shirt wicked the moisture away from my body very well and didn’t stick to me during my golf swing.  The fit, especially important during the swing, is very comfortable and doesn’t hang up or bind at any point.

In the office the ML75 is very comfortable and certainly very classy.  In the kitchen, the olive oil came right out as did the marinara and Greek oregano.

Easy Care

The microfiber polyester is so soft.  It feels like silk.  Almost as great as the feel is the fact that if washed and dried properly, the shirt will never shrink or wrinkle.  That’s a big deal for me.

Critiques

Critiques: NONE.  ZERO.  ZILCH.  NADA.

Conclusion

At $69 retail, the Greg Norman ML75 is a very good value.  This polo delivers comfort, style and performance one might expect from polos priced twice as much.

Swag Golf Shirts Are Great

So I’m going to be spending a full day at the Tuesday practice round of the Masters last week.  I have about 12.8 billion golf shirts in my wardrobe to choose from.  I chose to wear my white Swag Golf bamboo charcoal golf shirt.

About Swag Golf Shirts

Swag Golf shirts are made from bamboo charcoal which is basically burnt bamboo.  Bamboo is a fast growing grass and thus more eco-friendly and sustainable as a consumable.

Bamboo charcoal also has some great inherent features.  It is anti-bacterial, anti fungal, anti-static and self deodorizing.  I really need that last feature.

Swag says the shirt promotes the human body’s bio processes such as increased metabolism and blood circulation.  I’m not sure about that one, but I can’t prove ’em wrong since I haven’t measured my blood circulation with and without the shirt on…  🙂

Looks

Bamboo aside, the shirt simply looks awesome.  There’s a hint of an argyle pattern in the body of the shirt which gives it a cool look.  The logo looks nice.  The cut and sizing of the shirt are very stylish.

On the course, or Augusta National as the case may be

I’ve worn my Swag Golf shirt for many golf rounds already, as well as while walking the grounds at Augusta National last week.  The shirt is extremely comfortable and I can tell it breaths very well.  Even in the 85 degree, high moisture conditions in Georgia last week, I was cool and dry.  During golf swings there are no tugs or tight areas.  No swing restriction or compromises in comfort.

Conclusion

Swag Golf shirts are stylish, comfortable, environmentally friendly and they just plain look great.  I wish my pals at Swag Golf great success in their business.


FRB Sportswear has some fun and comfortable golf shirts

I’ve been sporting some new threads the last little while from FRB Sportswear.  The unique thing about these shirts is the fun graphics and text imprinted or embroidered on them.

Yesterday I wore my Sandbagger golf shirt, which is a super light weight and very comfortable polyester.  This shirt is perfect for the weather conditions here right now.  It was about 94 yesterday and dry.  The poly didn’t stick to my skin or make me any hotter than I already was.  In fact I feel like it actually kept me cooler.

Funny thing about the Sandbagger shirt.  Whenever I wear it, the conversation of sandbaggers and what jerks they are always comes up.  Awareness baby.

My 13 year old son, who is damn near as tall as me now, has the FRB golf shirt “Bunker Mentality.” He loves how comfortable that one is and it is about his favorite shirt to wear golfing now.

Messages

FRB shirts have some funny statements, themes, sayings…  There are so many FRB shirts/themes that it would be tough to cover them all so you’ll have to check out their web site.  But here are a few of the cool golf themed ones:

Bunker Mentality
The Sandbagger
Menapause
Dick Out
Multi Bogey Attack

Other categories and products.

FRB doesn’t just have golf polos either.  They have a wide array of T-shirts, shorts, hats, holiday wear and more.

Categories you can shop from include bar room attire, extreme gear, Hawaiian, traditional, Holiday and special.

I’m sure there’s a message or theme in there somewhere for just about any occasion.  For a few more images of FRB apparel, click here.
