I’ve been gaming the Travis Mathew “We Like to Paddy” polo for a couple of months now. It is one of my top go-to shirts, and I have a LOT of shirts. Let’s take a look.
The Paddy (for short) is made from 62% recycled Polyester, 31% cotton and 7% Spandex. The Polyester and Spandex make the polo super easy to mange in terms of washing, wrinkle resistance and not shrinking.
The combo also provides super (really super) comfort and performance.
The cut and fit of this polo is perfect. I’m not big on tight fitting shirts, but I also don’t want a giant, loose fitting frumpy blanket either. This polo fits is a complimentary way without being too tight, binding, or pulling.
The shirt features a floral print with some subtle yellow and green accents.
Out on the course, or out on the town!
On the Course
You know John Rahm? World #1 golfer that just won the Masters Tournament? He games the Paddy. If the polo works for the #1 player in the world, under all the pressure and varying conditions, it works for me.
The fabric stretches and moves easily with athletic activity, or when lifting a frosty beverage up. No restrictions and no uncomfortable tightness in the golf swing.
There is one color way available, white. Obviously that’s the color pictured here.
Sizes run from small to 3XL.
The We Like to Paddy polo is one of my all-time favorites! It’s a perfect combination of style, performance, comfort, and convenience! Snag one for dad! Father’s Day is coming up and this polo would make a fantastic Father’s Day golf gift!
I’ve had the Sunday Golf El Camino Golf Bag in play for awhile now. I really dig the concept of Sunday golf bags, which typically are very small, light, and hold less clubs than a standard bag.
Are 14 clubs really necessary?
Let me tell you a little story. For 578 long decades I was the president of my local men’s golf association. In human years that’s seven. I was in charge of arranging tournaments, scoring, activities and all that goes along with being the club president. Yeah I fielded calls at 3am from disgruntled players wondering why their birdie on #13 didn’t win a skin. It’s really fun to explain to some bonehead at 3am how an eagle beats a birdie. I digress.
One of the tournaments I put on every year was the “4-club” tournament. In that tournament each competitor could use any 4 clubs they wanted from their bag. I’d usually go 3W, 7i, PW, putter or something close to that. Over the years of putting on the 4-club tourney I noticed something very interesting. The scores didn’t change! What? Yes. The score players turned in with four clubs were the same average scores they shot with 14. It was then that I realized that having 14 clubs, including four wedges might not be as critical to my game as I thought.
Back to Sunday
So I’ve had a few Sunday bags in my years of golfing and blogging about golf. I love to walk and carry and a Sunday bag is the best option by far. Now let’s talk about the El Camino.
The El Camino is well designed and thought out. Obviously not just slapped together by someone who doesn’t play golf. I can super-easily fit eight clubs in the bag and I’ve squeezed 12 in there in a pinch. I prefer eight when using the El Camino. Driver, hybrid, a few irons, couple of wedges, putter.
Getting clubs out and putting them in is a breeze. There are four compartments for arranging the clubs.
The pockets on the El Camino are huge, especially considering the small footprint of the bag. I can easily fit in a bunch of extra balls, accessories, rain gear, a towel, some snacks, and even a couple of…. “frosty beverages.”
The stand portion of the bag is solid. It provides a great base and deploys and tucks away without a thought. It’s natural to pick up the bag and just throw it over your shoulder without thinking about the stand.
Aesthetics are a big deal and the El Camino nails them.
The El Camino is super sharp looking. Clean lines, great color scheme (I dig grays).
The El Camino is available in eight colors, including a camo style. My color is Heather Grey.
Walking is no doubt the best way to experience golf. Walk the course with the El Camino.
While you’re at it, rethink your club strategy. You may be carrying too many clubs and not using your brain and creativity to create shots with the clubs you do have.
Great Gift Idea
Father’s Day, Christmas, Holidays, tournament prizes… All great reasons to pick up an El Camino! They’re around $200 on the Sunday Golf website.
Filed under: “How’d they know I needed a new wallet?”
In for review is a fun box with a couple of nice leather pieces from Robert Graham Clubhouse Collection. Inside is wallet with card guard RFID protection, and a fun tee holder with some very cool golf tees included.
The Box: (It’s all about the presentation!)
My current wallet is falling apart! The timing of this product submission is perfecto! I’ll be putting the wallet into play immediately and posting a full review after I’ve beat it up for awhile.
I like the quality and the styling. The color scheme of the inner art is nice. This wallet is a little bigger than my previous, but I need more space to carry all the cash I win on the golf course.
Stay tuned for my full review. Until then I’d consider these items as potential Christmas (“Holiday” for you politically correct folks) gift items!
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.
The Golf Pride MCC grip is the #1 hybrid grip on tour. These grips are a hybrid rubber/cord grip which combines the best performance characteristics of each material. Here’s the whole color spectrum, representing color schemes for most sports teams.
The upper hand area of the grip is brushed cotton cord and the the lower part of the grip is a high performance rubber material. The cord portion naturally gives the player a solid grip and control in all weather conditions while the rubber portion provides feel and responsiveness.
All weather control – cord style wicks away moisture to help prevent slipping.
Max surface texture – “Pebbled” texture increases surface area, increasing control of the club.
Firm feel – Grip provides firm, responsive feel and a high level of feedback. “Feedback” is the vibration and audible sound translated from the club to the golfer.
After careful analysis my team color is the red and black grip, just right of center. This matches well the Utah Utes crimson red.
Which color matches your team?
