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.

First Look: Three Sixty Six Collarless Golf Polo Shirt

I’m all about supporting the entrepreneurs and small golf companies. I love helping promote and expose cool products in the golf world, from equipment to apparel. Today I’m taking my very first look at shirts by Three Sixty Six.

Men’s Quick-Dry Collarless Golf Polo

Very interesting design. It’s a collarless, but has a sort of a mock collar. Will the country club collar police approve?  Probably.

Here are some highlights from Three Sixty Six

  • 100% Polyester
  • Button closure
  • Machine Wash
  • DRY FIT AND ANTI-ODOR TECHNOLOGY – Designed with moisture-wicking fabric, Three Sixty Six’s mens golf shirts wick sweat away from your skin and evaporate it, keeping you cool, dry and comfortable on and off the golf course.
  • LIGHTWEIGHT AND BREATHABLE GOLF SHIRTS FOR MEN – Made with ultra-soft jersey fabric, this mens polo shirt is lightweight and breathable, giving you maximum ventilation and allowing you to keep cool during those hot days on the golf course.
  • COLLARLESS AND RAGLAN DESIGN – These polos are designed with a modern collarless look, a button up placket, and a hidden button flap for extra sleekness. Not only that, these polo shirts are considered raglans, which have sleeves that stretch fully to the collar in one piece allowing you to extend your arms with full mobility.
  • LIGHTWEIGHT AND BREATHABLE – Made with 100% polyester, this mens collarless golf polo shirt is thin to the skin but made with maximum durability and extreme breathability. Features a thinly striped design embedded into the fabric and side vents for better mobility and style.

As far as I can tell, there are somewhere between 19-24 colors. Depends on what website you go to. The sizes range from small to XXXX-Large! Big boys rejoice!

Non Stock Photo

I always try to post my own images, but I struggle getting decent apparel shots. That is why I included a stock photo above. I think this polo is better looking in person than the stock photo!

I haven’t even tried this on yet, but I already can tell I’m going to dig it. The fabric is super soft and it’s obviously going to fit comfortably.

Stay tuned for my pending review. I’ll put it through a few cycles and see how it performs!

Player2 Apparel Review – Drop Another

I’m happy to help support new golf brands and entrepreneurs. Here’s your chance to do the same with Father’s Day just around the corner. Check out some Player2 apparel.

On the left side of the photo above is the Player2 “3-Putt” polo.  I must admit that I would normally shy away from any golf product whose name implies something bad, but we’re going to let it slide… this time. The 3-Putt is a performance polo with a classic fit and 4-way stretch.  The polo employs active wicking to pull moisture away from the player and help it quickly evaporate.  The polo keeps the player cool (physically) with “brrr Triple Effect Cooling.  It was 96 degrees here today, so I need a bunch of that brrr Triple Effect NOW!

On the right is a classic T for apres golf. The fabric is mega-soft due to a tri-blend of fabrics.  I dig chilling out in this one.  Sizes run from small to XXL and there are four available colors.

Finally in the center is the Trucker Mesh Hat… er, a “lid.” I dig trucker lids.  Sizes available for adults and kids.

Best of luck to Player2. May your birdies, and your sales be plentiful.


First Look: 2021 Galway Bay Raingear Line

Let’s hope that the arrival of the 2021 Galway Bay Raingear Line to HOG World Headquarters signals a change in the weather for the better here in northern Utah.  We are in a severe drought.  We are breaking high temp records faster than Bryson DeChambeau’s ball speed. Some rain, and lots of it, would be welcomed and is sorely needed here. And now I have some gear to test out, so it is even more important!

All-Weather Unlined Pant


I have a gray pair of the 2020 version of these pants and they are fantastic. In the spring, when the snow was melting and temps not super high, I used these as mountain biking pants. They were awesome until I caught them in the chain and sliced off a chunk of them.


These pants use a proprietary “Hydro-Flex 32” fabric – a breathable stretch fabric that’s waterproof and windproof.

All-Weather Long Sleeve Jacket


The All-Weather Long Sleeve Jacket also features the Hydro-Flex 32 fabric, which keeps the rain and wind out, but allows the golfer to move freely and comfortably.


The collar of the jacket is smartly designed with a high back to keep rain out, and lower in the front where it isn’t needed as much.

Stay Tuned and Pray for Rain

I’ll be testing these items out as soon as we get some rain! Hopefully that’s very soon. I’ll post my full review following testing.
