I’ve been working on this review and thought perhaps I should wait in light of the Tiger Woods DUI news over the holiday weekend.  Timing is everything I guess.  Say hello to the Panda Tiger tee by Press Golf.

T-shirts are the new rage in golf.  I’ve been receiving contacts from many t-shirt makers asking for me to review their shirts.  These days the millennials who golf are often wearing skinny jeans and t-shirts.  I’m old school though.  Collared shirts only for me on the course, but off the course I’m down with anything which is comfortable.  Plus I don’t think my thighs would fit in the waist of skinny jeans.

Press Golf offers fun golf t-shirts and other products, even baby onesies.

  • Side-seamed
  • Retail fit
  • Unisex sizing
  • Shoulder taping
  • 52% combed and ring-spun cotton 48% polyester

Comfort

The fabric combination and weaving is soooo comfortable and luxurious feeling.  Press Golf tee shirts are my new gamer for evenings at HOG World Headquarters.

I’m sporting a different Press Golf T this morning as I write this post.  Stay tuned for my blog post on “Panda Phil.”


Bogey Is Life Golf T-Shirts

A new fad in golf is t-shirts, for the millennial crowd I suppose. Maybe it’s the Top Golf thing. A new brand in the T space is “Bogey Is Life.” Bogey Is Life makes a few comfy casual apparel pieces like this one below, as well ask long sleeves, tank tops and hats.

Bogey Is Life

I’ve been enjoying this T around HOG World Headquarters and the fabric is super soft and comfortable. It’s a “tri-blend” of 50% polyester, 25% cotton and 25% rayon.

The name is inspired by the creator of the brand, an average golfer.  Average golfers shoot bogey golf and probably worse if they played by the rules!

At only $24.99 direct from the Bogey Is Life website, this is a great golf related Father’s Day gift idea that dad can wear on or off the course.  For us golfers who shoot better than bogey golf though I wonder when the “Birdie Is Life” version comes out?


Weekend Warrior Golf T-Shirts

I need some casual shirts to wear around HOG World Headquarters while writing or shooting gear pictures. You know, something comfortable and golf related.  Enter Weekend Warrior golf tees.

I needed a tee shirt that says "golf" with the Old Course in St Andrews in the background!

These tees are 100% cotton. I’m not big on cotton anymore. I prefer polys and spandex over cotton because of the durability, easy care, and the fact that they don’t shrink. That said these tees are very comfortable and fun.

"Kid, get out of my picture."

“Kid, get out of my picture.”

I love the golf themed shirts. I even got one for the little guy, Seve. He’s still a little too small for it but he loves to wear his beard tee shirt over his jammies.

These tees are fun.  Best of luck to Weekend Warrior and let me know when you get some non-cotton shirts in.  I’d love to feature them.


Golf Apparel Review: Greg Norman ML75 Golf Polo

I’ve been diligently testing two Greg Norman ML75 golf polos recently. I’ve put them through the rigors at the office, through many golf rounds (high and low), laundry batches, and cooking sessions making killer Greek dishes for dinner. Let’s take a look at the ML75 features, then look at how it performed in those varying environments.

Greg Norman ML75 Polo

Greg Norman ML75 Golf Polo

ML75 Features

  • Super fine microfiber polyester yarn
  • Moisture wicking
  • Easy care
  • Aerated knit collar
  • Aerated knit inserts
  • Shark on bottom hem
  • Ultraviolet protection factor 20+

Sizes and Colors

The ML75 comes in many different patterns as well as solid colors.  Too many to list, but the two I tested are a great looking striped purple and striped black (see both photos).

Sizes for the ML75 include small, medium, large, extra-large, and double extra-large.

On The Course, In The Office, In The Kitchen, Out On The Town, In The Laundry

First and foremost this polo is great on the golf course.  I’ve now worn it in all sorts of conditions, including 94 degree temperatures with nearly 100% humidity.  In the high heat and humidity the shirt wicked the moisture away from my body very well and didn’t stick to me during my golf swing.  The fit, especially important during the swing, is very comfortable and doesn’t hang up or bind at any point.

In the office the ML75 is very comfortable and certainly very classy.  In the kitchen, the olive oil came right out as did the marinara and Greek oregano.

Easy Care

The microfiber polyester is so soft.  It feels like silk.  Almost as great as the feel is the fact that if washed and dried properly, the shirt will never shrink or wrinkle.  That’s a big deal for me.

Critiques

Critiques: NONE.  ZERO.  ZILCH.  NADA.

Conclusion

At $69 retail, the Greg Norman ML75 is a very good value.  This polo delivers comfort, style and performance one might expect from polos priced twice as much.

Swag Golf Shirts Are Great

So I’m going to be spending a full day at the Tuesday practice round of the Masters last week.  I have about 12.8 billion golf shirts in my wardrobe to choose from.  I chose to wear my white Swag Golf bamboo charcoal golf shirt.

About Swag Golf Shirts

Swag Golf shirts are made from bamboo charcoal which is basically burnt bamboo.  Bamboo is a fast growing grass and thus more eco-friendly and sustainable as a consumable.

Bamboo charcoal also has some great inherent features.  It is anti-bacterial, anti fungal, anti-static and self deodorizing.  I really need that last feature.

Swag says the shirt promotes the human body’s bio processes such as increased metabolism and blood circulation.  I’m not sure about that one, but I can’t prove ’em wrong since I haven’t measured my blood circulation with and without the shirt on…  🙂

Looks

Bamboo aside, the shirt simply looks awesome.  There’s a hint of an argyle pattern in the body of the shirt which gives it a cool look.  The logo looks nice.  The cut and sizing of the shirt are very stylish.

On the course, or Augusta National as the case may be

I’ve worn my Swag Golf shirt for many golf rounds already, as well as while walking the grounds at Augusta National last week.  The shirt is extremely comfortable and I can tell it breaths very well.  Even in the 85 degree, high moisture conditions in Georgia last week, I was cool and dry.  During golf swings there are no tugs or tight areas.  No swing restriction or compromises in comfort.

Conclusion

Swag Golf shirts are stylish, comfortable, environmentally friendly and they just plain look great.  I wish my pals at Swag Golf great success in their business.
