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.

Final Thoughts

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!

First Look: Travis Mathew Heater Polo

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.

Stay Tuned

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.

Finally U.S. Open Week is Here, Most Importantly APPAREL SCRIPTS!!! GOODIE GOODIE GUMDROPS!

That has to be the best title I’ve ever written.  Journalistic genius that only the top male golf blogger in the world could produce (more on that ranking later…).

Yes, it is U.S. Open week.  Finally!  Will Jordan Spieth win?  Rory McIlory?  Will Tiger Woods make the cut?

WHO CARES about that trivial stuff?  The BEST part of U.S. Open week is the apparel scripts! It’s the time when golf PR sends out useless promotional drivel and lazy brown-nosing “journalists” repost it hoping to get some free swag, rather than working to create their own original content!

I didn’t sleep a wink last night in anticipation of all the great apparel scripts!

For a new HOG feature this year, I’m going to analyze and grade some scripts!  Let’s start with Rory McIlory:

Rory McIlory

No underwear?  #fail

ONE shirt?  One pant?  No underwear? #fail

Rory McIlory will have a tough time winning the U.S. Open with the above apparel script. By the fourth day that one shirt and one pair of pants are going to be pretty icky. Maybe he will have them cleaned between each round? And how is he supposed to compete with no underwear or socks? Chafe city.

Finally, how could he hit any good golf shots at all in a shirt which only has one arm? And oddly, if outerwear is needed that too only has one arm but the opposite one the shirt has! WTF?


Tiger Woods


Tiger’s pant scripter predicts a missed cut!

Tiger Woods’s apparel script above is a little more complete than Rory’s.  At least he has two pairs of pants to wear this week.  Does the pant scripter think Tiger is going to miss the cut?

Once again it is chafe city with no underwear or socks.  Wait… no shoes either?  As violent as Tiger’s swing can be sometimes I doubt he will have good footing or power with no shoes.

Tiger’s right shoulder is going to be much more tan than his left, as none of these shirts have right arms.


Rickie Fowler


I like how Rickie Fowler’s apparel scripts have been moving away from the “traffic cone” look to something a little more subdued.

In this script the very popular one-arm look is in action.  No socks.  No underwear.  Free-balling it.

I’m confused by the three pairs of pants.  Did they forget one?  Is Rickie going to wear one of the three a second time, if he makes the cut?  I suggest the red ones with the blue and orange shirt.


Keegan Bradley

I tried to look at Keegan Bradley’s apparel script by Travis Mathew.  The formatting of the website made me so dizzy I had to leave.


Jason Day (and Sergio Garcia, and Dustin Johnson)


“Jason, try to look interested…”

I have to hand it to adidas.  They are the only apparel script I’ve seen that gives their players both arms of the shirt.  Can’t tell if Jason Day is wearing any underwear or socks.

No need to post Sergio Garcia’s or Dustin Johnson’s.  They pretty much look the same.


Tony Korologos


My apparel script above has everything I’ll need for the U.S. Open at Chambers Bay:  shirts with two arms, soiled underwear, dirty socks, shoes (under the pile)… it’s all there.

I realize Puma and adidas and Nike will probably steal some of these script ideas for the upcoming PGA Championship and Open Championship apparel scripting.   That’s fine.  Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.
