Following yesterday’s FIVE birdie round I felt I’d have enough experience in the new Kentwool KW Series Men’s Sport Socks to post my review. Obviously such great golf play was not a result of having great golf clubs, a great golf ball, or executing shots. It was all attributable to the socks. That’s my story and I’m sticking with it.
Kentwool KW Series Men’s Sport Socks
About the KW Men’s Sport Socks
Kentwool as one might deduce, makes wool socks. I’ve been wearing Kentwools for several years now. I will NOT wear cotton socks again after wearing Kentwools! The KW Men’s Sport Socks are a slight departure. They’re part wool and part bamboo. The great thing about bamboo is that it is probably one of the most eco-friendly and replenishable materials in the world. It grows seriously fast.
The bamboo allows the same performance and moisture wicking, but in a thinner and lighter sock.
This sock is currently available in two colors: black/blue (pictured) and natural grey.
The KW Sport comes in medium, large, and extra-large sizes.
On The Course
The KW Sport is extremely comfortable. The last two rounds I’ve played with them the temperatures were 94 and 92 degrees. No sweat, literally. Feet dry and comfy.
$20.95 is not cheap for a pair of socks. As the saying goes, “you get what you pay for.” This show is well worth the price of admission. Great performance, moisture reduction, comfort. Fabulous.
These would make a great Father’s Day golf gift! Snag a pair of these for dad. If I’m your dad (or even if you want me to be), snag me another pair!
My all time favorite golfer? Not Tiger Woods or Jack Nicklaus (though Jack is a close 2nd place). That distinction belongs to Bobby Jones. Mr. Jones was quite possibly the best golfer ever. Since he retired from golf at age 28, we will never know how many major championships he would have won. When he retired at 28, Jones had 13 majors. Compare that to Tiger who at age 38 has 14. Do the math. Jack and Tiger might have had another dozen to catch Mr. Jones.
Bobby Jones was not only a great golfer, he dressed the part. Decades after Mr. Jones passed away the Bobby Jones apparel line continues the classy tradition. The line is celebrating its 25th year in business.
XH20 Aero Polo by Bobby Jones – click to zoom
Today’s subject is the new Bobby Jones XH20 Aero Polo. Lets take a look.
This polo is made from a proprietary polyester and lycra blend. These are two great fabrics for sport/golf performance in my book. They provide high moisture wicking, no shrinking, durability, comfort, and most of all easy care. Not much needed in terms of ironing and maintenance. Wash it and lay it down flat to dry.

I really dig the Bobby Jones polo line up. The XH20 Aero Polo is very classy. The color scheme is fantastic. The black/green is such a great combination. I just realized this is almost the exact same scheme as the HOG logo and website theme. No wonder I like it so much.
Along with the great scheme, there’s the knitted collar. Inside the 3-button placket is a little embroidered Bobby Jones figure. Nice.
On The Course/At The Office
The comfort level of this polo is fantastic on the course or in the cube.
The look is very sharp. During the golf swing the polo does not bind or pull anywhere. I’m free to swing in comfort with no distractions.
The Bobby Jones XH20 Aero Polo at $85 is a mid-range priced high performance polo with style to spare.
I have a few other Bobby Jones apparel items to review so stay tuned.
Big money game coming up later this morning. Normally I wouldn’t take any chances with new gear but this is the best golf sock maker on this planet, Kentwool. Today’s sock script is their new Men’s Sport edition.
Kentwool KW Men’s Sport Socks
These are a little departure for Kentwool. Normally their socks are made from 100% wool. These are a combination of bamboo and wool. I’ve tried bamboo socks from other brands over the years and liked them. Bamboo is one of the most eco-friendly materials in the world.
Father’s Day is coming up soon. I’d definitely consider Kentwool socks for a great Father’s Day golf gift. I happen to be a father, so take the hint…
After sufficient golf rounds with these I’ll post a full review. Stay tuned.
Today’s apparel script features the Oakley “Delta” Polo. I was quite comfortable in my regular business capacity today, and caught a selfie opening the fridge. You may recognize this shirt as the same one Bubba Watson was wearing during the final round when he won the 2014 Masters Tournament.
Bubba wears the shirt winning the Masters. I wear it opening the fridge. Both great accomplishments in our own worlds.
Stay tuned for my full review of the Oakley Delta Polo after I’ve had a chance to test it out on the golf course.
Look who photobombed my morning golf apparel script. None other than Mr. Bobby Jones himself!
Bobby Jones XH20 Performance Poly Polo
I’m happy to be working with Bobby Jones Apparel, a brand I’ve greatly respected for a long time, on some upcoming apparel reviews. Today’s first look at the XH20 Performance Poly Polo is the beginning. The color of this polo is very hard to capture photographically. It is called Pique. The color is an orange/coral/pink combination. The photo above captured more of the orange of the garment, but looking at it on my body right now I’d say the coral/pink hue is missing a bit. This is one you have to see in person.
Looking forward to my Bobby Jones Apparel reviews coming up. I’ll put this and a few other Bobby Jones pieces through the ringer, pun intended, and post my findings soon.
Father’s Day is coming up. Looks like a good Father’s Day golf gift idea.
Check out this polo and a few other Bobby Jones pieces in the new HOG Bobby Jones Apparel photo gallery.
