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.

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: Rhoback Performance Activewear

I may not be able to swing a golf club with two bad shoulders at the moment, but I can sure wear apparel like a mutha. I’m excited to debut a new apparel brand today, Rhoback.  Rhoback is performance activewear company based in Charlottesville, VA.  Here are a few of their offerings, currently in the rigorous HOG evaluation period.

Game Day Polos

I’ve got two Rhoback Game Day polos to test out.  Of course I’ve got a red and white for my Utah Utes, plus a neutral gray that will match with just about anything.

Foghorn 1/4 Zip

For the fall (not now, it is 100+ degrees) I’ll be ready with the Foghorn 1/4 zip long sleeve pullover.

I’m currently testing out the polos now.  The fabric is super soft and comfortable.  When the temps start to drop, I’ll throw the pullover into the review queue as well.

Stay tuned for the full review of the Game Day polos soon.



Lifestyle Alert – Boxer Briefs from Warriors and Scholars

I can’t make birdies if my panties are all in a bunch. You can quote me on that. Seriously. I’ll do just about anything (other than practice or take lessons) to improve my scores. To that end I’ve been “testing” some new boxer briefs from a company called Warriors and Scholars. Let’s check them out.

I would have posted a picture of myself in these boxer briefs, but I’m too busy right now to field calls and emails from modeling agencies or inquisitive ladies. 🙂

Above are the “Daniel” model boxer briefs from Warriors and Scholars.  They’re made from 93% polyester and 7% spandex.  No cotton, which is good.  Not a cotton fan for just about any apparel item, especially items so “intimate,” if  you will.

The poly/spandex blend makes the undies not only super soft and comfortable, but moisture wicking as well.  And let’s face it, I have enough to sweat over when I have a 3-footer for birdie to keep myself from losing a $2 bet.

The materials stretch and move as needed.

Lastly the “spacious pouch” provides room for comfort, but proper support to make sure everything is in the right place.  Nothing worse that trying to smash a drive on a tight hole when things aren’t in the “right place.”


Sizes run from small to double-extra large and the patters are very fun and unique.  There are 24 different patterns to choose from.


Warriors and Scholars offers subscriptions.  You can get one to three pairs delivered to your door per month.  One pair per month runs $12/month. I should do the 3-pairs package which runs $30/month.  In a few months I could replace all my old boxers.  There’s a pair of my old boxers at the Smithsonian right now being carbon dated to determine their age.

In for review are some very nice trousers from The Savile Row Company, a family run business in the heart of London’s Savile Row, where some of the world’s finest tailors are based. I’m thrilled to put the Savile Row Men’s Grey Classic Fit Chinos through the HOG test battery. Check them out.

My photo doesn’t do them justice. I’ve tried them on and they’re super comfortable and the fit is just right.


  • Classic fit, pleat front, zip fly
  • 98% cotton; 2% elastane
  • Improved fabric giving more comfort
  • 2 pleats at front, fits through thigh with a slightly tapered leg
  • Slanted pockets; jetted buttoned back pockets
  • Machine washable at 40°C (Hey, they’re from London. That’s 104 Fahrenheit)

I’ll be testing these trousers out on and off the course and posting my full findings soon. Stay tuned.
