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!
The men’s golf scene is as competitive as it’s ever been, with a number of talented players battling to become the world’s top-ranked player. Who is likely to end 2023 as the number one golfer according to the official rankings?
John Rahm – The Current Number One
This Spanish golfer was the number one amateur player for a record 60 weeks before turning pro, and he quickly became the top professional golfer too. He reached the top spot for the first time in mid-2020 and has recently claimed it back from Scottie Scheffler.
With the 2021 US Open and 2023 Masters to his name, Rahm has already shown that he has the mentality and talent to win major tournaments. Only the second golfer from Spain to be world number one, after Seve Ballesteros, Rahm became the fourth Spaniard to win the Masters but the first European to claim both the Masters and the US Open.
That Masters victory that catapulted him back into the number one spot came when he was forced to play 30 holes on the final day after bad weather had caused a backlog. He eventually won the title by four strokes, with a final round of 69 putting him four strokes ahead of Brooks Koepka and Phil Mickelson.
New Jersey-born Scheffler was ranked the number one men’s golfer for 35 weeks over three different spells, with the last one ending with Rahm’s victory in the 2023 Masters. He took the top spot for the first time in March 2022, and it wouldn’t be a major surprise to see him take back the title at some point before 2023 ends.
His sole major championship wins to date came in the 2022 Masters, when he finished with a final round of 71 to win by a total of three strokes from Rory McIlroy. His other biggest win came in the 2023 Players Championship.
A golfer since the age of three, Scheffler was hugely successful at youth level before playing at collegiate level with the University of Texas. He was Rookie of the Year in his first season on the PGA Tour, with highlights including a round of 59 at The Northern Trust tournament and finishing fourth at the 2020 PGA Championship
He moved up to world number one after starting 2022 with three tournament wins before claiming the Masters. Scheffler became only the fifth golfer in history to win the Masters while being the number one in the rankings.
Born in Northern Ireland, Rory McIlroy burst onto the pro scene by winning €10 million in prize money by the age of 22. He was quickly ranked alongside global superstars in other sports as one of the most marketable players on the planet as he won numerous tournaments.
In terms of the number one sport, McIlroy has now spent over 100 weeks at the top of the list. His last period at the top of the sport came between October 2022 and February 2023, before he was overtaken by Scheffler.
McIlroy has collected four major championships in his career to date, starting with the US Open in 2011 and ending with the 2014 PGA Championship, all of which he won at the age of 25. That final major win came by a single stroke over Phil Mickelson, with a par on the final hole enough to confirm his win, and it could be argued that he should have won more majors during this golden spell in his career.
If he reaches number one in the rankings it will be the tenth time in his career, although some of those occasions have seen him stay at the top for only a brief period. Right now, he sits in third place. Despite winning majors in recent years, he’s collected a total of 36 wins in his pro career, the last coming in the Hero Dubai Desert Classic at the start of this year.
Currently in fourth place on the rankings, Patrick Cantlay spent 55 consecutive weeks as the top-ranked amateur golfer in the world, which is still a record, but the Californian has yet to achieve the same feat as a pro. He turned pro in 2012 and has won eight times on the PGA Tour since then.
His first win as a pro came in 2013 at the Colombia Championship. As for his first PGA title, this came at the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open after a playoff. So far in 2023, Cantlay has been challenging strongly but has been in the news headlines for slow play.
If you think Patrick Cantlay or any of the other golfers on this list are likely to win an upcoming tournament, you can find the latest golf odds online. You can either check out the next tournament on the tour or else look further ahead and see what the odds are for the next majors on the list.
All four of these golfers have the talent to reach the top spot during the rest of 2023 and it wouldn’t be a big surprise to find that the number one position on the world golf rankings varies between two or more of them as the year progresses.
I’m always on the lookout for golf clothing that matches my lifestyle and personality. I have tried dozens of brands, and Travis Mathew has stood out for years. Their products are stylish, comfortable, and perfect for both on and off the golf course. Recently I couldn’t help notice the killer styling of newly crowned Masters Tournament champion John Rahm, sporting Travis Mathew apparel.
About Travis Mathew
Travis Mathew is a lifestyle brand that was founded in Southern California in 2007. The brand was created by Travis Johnson and Ryan Ellis, who wanted to create clothing that was stylish, comfortable, and perfect for the modern man’s active lifestyle. Over the years, Travis Mathew has become one of the most popular brands in the golf industry, worn by top players like John Rahm.
What I love about Travis Mathew is their attention to detail. Each product is designed with the customer in mind, ensuring that it meets their needs and preferences. The brand’s commitment to quality and innovation has earned them a loyal following in the golf community and beyond.
First Look at the Travis Mathew Heater Polo
The Travis Mathew Heater Polo is one of the brand’s most popular products, and for a good reason. This golf polo is perfect for the modern golfer who wants to look and feel their best on the course. The Heater Polo is available in a range of colors, from classic black to bold red, so you can choose the one that best matches your style. Sizes range from small to XXXL.
The polo is made from 70% Recycled Polyester, 23% Cotton, 7% Spandex. Polyester and Spandex? Back in the 80’s that meant something a bit different than it does now. These days those fabrics translate to comfort and performance. The material is also moisture-wicking, which keeps you cool and dry even on the hottest days.
Performance Features of the Heater Polo for Golf
The Travis Mathew Heater Polo is designed to perform. The polo has a classic design that is perfect for golfers who want to look their best on the course. The polo features a three-button placket, which gives it a timeless look. The collar is also designed to stay in place, so you don’t have to worry about it getting in your way during your swing.
One of the key features of the Heater Polo is its breathability. The polo has a vented back panel that allows air to circulate, keeping you cool and comfortable during your round. The polo also has a UPF 50+ rating, which means that it provides excellent protection from the sun’s harmful rays.
As with all Travis Mathew polos, the Heater oozes class and style. The lines are clean and elegantly simple.
Can’t wait to up my style game and put the polo through the rigorous HOG testing battery. Stay tuned for the full review, which I’ll post after I’ve put the Heater through some test rounds, test washings, and probably test spilling salsa on it.
