New Favorite Hoodie from Real Golfers – The Flop Shot

Have to give my apologies to Real Golfers for the delay in posting. It’s winter (a.k.a ski season) here and not much golf is being had. But what a perfect time to sport my new Real Golfers Flop Shot hoodie!  This is the most comfortable hoodie I’ve ever had and it isn’t even close.

When it comes to golf gear that doesn’t just look good but feels amazing too, the Flop Shot Hoodie from Real Golfers is like executing a perfect flop shot with your lob wedge pancaked open. This isn’t just any hoodie; it’s a blend of all things cozy, stylish, and perfectly golf. Imagine wrapping up in the softest blanket – that’s the kind of comfort we’re talking about, thanks to its plush fleece interior. Whether you’re getting ready to take on the course or just kicking back after a round well-played, this hoodie is all about making you feel great.

No Drawstrings

Ditching the drawstrings was a stroke of genius. See what I did there? No more annoying flaps getting in your way when you’re focusing on that perfect shot. Plus, the ribbed cuffs and hem keep everything snug and warm without cramping your style (or your swing). It’s like this hoodie knows exactly what golfers need. Does it know I need a short game too?


Hidden Zipper Pockets

And let’s talk about those hidden zipper pockets. They’re not just for show. They’re for dough! They’re super practical, keeping your hands warm or your essentials safe without bulging out and ruining the hoodie’s sleek look. It’s the little details like this that make the Flop Shot Hoodie a total game-changer.

Made from a dreamy mix of rayon, polyester, and spandex, this hoodie feels soft yet durable. It’s designed to keep its cool, wash after wash, swing after swing. The tight hood stitching? That’s just the cherry on top, making sure nothing messes with your focus on the game.


The Flop Shot hoodie is available in five sizes.  I went with a large. Depending on fit I can be a medium or large and large was a perfect choice for me.

Let’s Seal the Deal

What seals the deal is how effortlessly cool this hoodie looks, on or off the course. Its unique color stands out in a sea of golf attire, making it a statement piece that’s as versatile as it is vibrant. Rock it with your golf pants, jeans, or even your workout gear – it’s all good. I’ve worn it to the gym more times than I have the course. Okay okay. I admit that the courses are covered in snow right now… but… With the Flop Shot Hoodie, it’s not just about playing great but feeling and looking great, too.

HOG World Headquarters is in full-on winter mode. Courses are closed. The ski resorts however, are very open and delivering big time.  Here’s a highlight video from last week.

First Look (literally): Lucyd Lyte Audio Sunglasses

What a world we live in.  I’m just taking a first “look” (ahem) at my new Earthbound prescription sunglasses with audio and bluetooth.  With these Lucyd Audio Sunglasses I can speak to ChatGPT and ChatGPT will respond back to me in my ears. I could have used this amazing breakthrough technology back in college! I can listen to music, or podcasts or whatever directly from the glasses as well.


The Lucyd Lyte Earthbound sunglasses are a game-changer in the world of wearable technology, blending the classic aesthetics of optical eyewear with cutting-edge Bluetooth audio capabilities. They embody a fusion of style and functionality, adhering strictly to the design principles of traditional eyewear while seamlessly incorporating advanced features. What sets Earthbound apart is its commitment to maintaining the elegance of classic sunglasses, enhanced with the best-in-class touch controls, microphones, lenses, and battery life. It’s a perfect example of technology and design walking hand in hand, offering a stylish accessory that doubles as a high-tech gadget.

Perhaps the most striking feature of the Earthbound is its ability to make ChatGPT handsfree and voice-accessible, a boon for those who prefer voice commands over typing. Users simply need to download the Lucyd app on their iOS or Android device, and they can start interacting with ChatGPT through Siri on their iPhone or iPad. This integration provides a seamless, convenient way to engage with ChatGPT, making it more accessible than ever. Additionally, with dual high-capacity lithium-ion batteries offering 12 hours of continuous music or talk time, the Earthbound sunglasses ensure that you stay connected and entertained throughout your day, whether it’s for work or leisure. With such longevity, users who listen to a few hours of music or podcasts daily would only need to charge their glasses 1-3x a week, adding to the convenience that these smart sunglasses bring to everyday life.

Stay Tuned (so to speak)

I’m just getting started with these.  First time I’ve ever had to read a manual and watch tutorial videos to figure out how to use my sunglasses. Not sure but I wonder if you can make calls with them too. That would be a fantastic feature. EDIT: YOU CAN!  I just made a call and had an entire conversation with audio to/from my sunglasses.  Game changer.

I’ll post a full review in a few weeks after I’ve put them through the full review process on the golf course, the ski resort, and the mountain bike trail.



Old Trapper Old Fashioned Beef Jerkey

Thanks to Old Trapper for sending in some of their Old Fashioned beef jerky for review. I made great use of my bag of old fashioned in several environments: The golf course, mountain biking, skiing, and on a road trip. It saved me on that road trip. Long day of driving and needed some calories and protein!


Recently I picked up some jerky from Costco.  Can’t remember the brand. It tasted fine but there was a super high amount of gristle. Not much more annoying and gross than chewing on un-chewable material, then having to find some way of politely discarding it.

I was very satisfied with the quality of the Old Fashioned, especially in terms of it NOT having gristle. I mean zero. Fantastic.


This jerky is very tasty, but not too salty. Many jerky brands seem to to overboard on the salt.  I would like to try some of the other flavors, of which there are several. Hot and spicy would probably be the ticket.

Gift Idea

Christmas is almost here. Forget candy. Throw some Old Trapper in your loved one’s stockings!
