From Utah to Michigan I’ve had this pair of men’s golf shorts and golf polo in play, both on and off the course, and in the air.

Retail price on these two is extremely affordable. The polo is at $24.99 and the shorts $29.99.

Polo

I’ve quite enjoyed sporting the Staydri Polo.  I’ve worn it in temps above 100F and down to as low as the 50’s.  Still comfortable all the way.  During the golf swing there is no binding, pulling or any restriction.  Plus it’s long enough that it won’t untuck after being pulled in a full rotation.

In the high temps the Staydri fabric helped keep me cool and dry with its moisture wicking properties.  If only it provided natural bug repellant too. That would have come in handy in northern Michigan a few weeks ago.

Golf Shorts

The shorts are very comfortable and fit true to size with a nice loose fit. They too flex during the swing.  Nothing worse than tightness at the belt line, causing restriction in the body’s rotation.

The fabric in these shorts is very light and smooth to the touch, but still durable and wrinkle resistant.  The pockets and buttons do their job nicely.

Finishing Holes

In a wide variety of conditions on and off the course, the Nicklaus Staydri polo and golf shorts are very comfortable, stylish, and high performance.  Nothing beats them for the very reasonable pricing.

Normally I dread fall and winter. But when I have an apparel piece as nice as this sitting here burning a hole in my psyche it’s a different story.

Say hello to the new Galvin Green Dash Jacket. I just tried it on. I may wear it the rest of the week, even though the temperatures here are still in the upper 90’s.

It may take a few weeks to put this beauty to the full fall test so stay tuned and I’ll get my review posted as soon as conditions allow.

It’s still almost 100 degrees here, but fall is coming. Soon I’ll be hooked on skiing here in northern Utah. For fall I have some new threads to test out from Bermuda Sands, the Woodland polo and Perfection long sleeve with full zip collar.

Here’s the Woodland polo:

And here’s the Perfection long sleeve:

I’ll be testing out these two fine apparel pieces and reviewing them in the fall. I can’t wait to try them. The fabric is devilishly smooth.

I’ve also got some Bermuda Sands women’s apparel to feature here which I’ll post about shortly. No, I’m not going to be wearing it. 🙂

Being a world famous golf blogger has its advantages… the big money, the hot women… but best of all is getting to check out killer golf apparel. Case in point today are some shorts and a polo from Jack Nicklaus apparel that aren’t even on their website yet.

Retail price on these two is extremely affordable. The polo is at $24.99 and the shorts $29.99.

I’ll be testing these out and reviewing them soon so stay tuned.


Craftsman Golf Head Covers

Old-school leather style head covers are the hot ticket right now in the golf accessories world.  There are some very nice ones out there, some which fetch a hefty price.  On the less expensive side and less smug is Craftsman head covers.  These are Chinese made (don’t sigh, 99.9% of golf stuff is made in China).  I’ve played most of the 2017 season with these head covers and they look like brand new and are not wearing out in the slightest.

My Set

My set includes a driver, 3-metal, hybrid, and blade putter cover as shown in the picture below.

On The Course

On the course I find the Craftsman head covers to work well and do their primary job, protect my golf clubs.  They are solid, well made, and durable.  I’m not sure if the colors in my set are supposed to be from the American flag though. The blue is more of a black.

Conclusion

I can’t write a detailed 2,000 word review on golf head covers. Suffice it to say that Craftsman Golf makes solid and simple head covers, including full customizing options. I’d love to see what they could do with some Hooked on Golf Blog logos on there.

I need a head cover to do three jobs: Show up, keep up, shut up. Oh sorry, that’s a caddie’s job.  I need head covers to protect my expensive golf investment. I need them to be easy to use. I need them to be durable and light weight. Finally, I need them to look decent.  Craftsman Golf’s covers cover all the bases, and all the clubs.
