Golf get-up with street inflection - Page 4

Luckily, it was a "best ball" kinda thing----we had a ringer that carried us. I wiffed a bunch, but I made good contact quite a bit, long drives, though I tend to slice. I drove to the green once on a par 3. I am sore now, surprisingly. The tricep of my left arm and my lower back on the left side. Oh, and I enjoyed the golf cart too much, I reckon.

Yeah, you can do that too. Except that's a perfectly good waste of expensive shoes.

Footjoys are high quality, and aren't ugly. They are classically styled and are basically what golfers have been wearing for the past hundred years.

I'd never do it to a pair of shoes in it's serviceable life. It's one of those noble send off kind of things. Or something to do with a $20 pair of ebay or thrift shoes. Footjoy makes a wonderfully functional pair of shoes, my wife has a pair she loves. I've just never seen a pair that sends my heart to fluttering.
I've yet to do this by the way, I'm not a golfer though I have played and will play again when my kids grow old enough to take out.

I think you should invent street golfing. I'm talking gutter styles. Straight urban. Cars could be hazards. And a cop's face could be the hole. You could ride through the streets in golf gangs... battling other golf gangs. I could rep the west side and you could rep the east.

It has already been invented---it's gone down in Philly, even. I'd take it to the streets, but I dunno, um... ninjas get shot over parking spaces here.

Not to mention that golf shoes ought to be thought of as more of an athletic shoe than a dress/fashion shoe. I think regular show would lack a tonne of funtion from torsional stiffnes to water resistance.

Just got a catalog from these guys: http://www.golfknicker.com/index.html Not exactly street wear but they have 60 colors of argyle socks. 60! I like.

I worked at a country club as a second job one year, and had to clean the carts, roll the clay courts (in South Florida, that was a hoot during storm season), fish the range balls out of the pond with a long net, etc., and occasionally had to tote clubs around for miserly, irritable, drunken snowbirds. I swore I'd never golf, and despite the best efforts of my colleagues in the legal profession, I've stayed true to my oath.

But God have mercy on my soul, that site has some awesome socks.

Today Geoff Ogilvy won the US Open wearing a Puma golf shirt and shoes. I also saw another young player wearing both pink pants and a pink polo. Chalk up one win for golf get-up with street inflection.

I used to wait tables at a restaurant in a country club. Let me tell you about the pricks that came into that joint. They used to tip with golf balls that they got for free. I should have used those golf balls to put holes in the windows of their suburbanXlexusXaston martin. I think that fueled my disdain for the wealthy.

I was shocked to learn that golf balls can cost $6 a piece... 55 and you got yourself R by 45RPM black overdyed Sorahikos.

Posting in Streetwear and Denim because ideally, I'd like to put these clothes to use after I walk off the course and not get my ass kicked in the subway.

Help!
