To be a bit pedantic, winners are only honorary members. They can play with a member, but they don’t have guest privileges and can’t participate in club activities. Jack is the only current member who has won. Arnie was a member too.

I believe that Geoff Yang and Jerry Yang are members.

Like clockwork, an inordinate number of people at the range now trying the pause at the top, and predictably not flushing it. :lurk:

Anyone want to share anything about golf clothing, where they shop for and what they are doing?

A lot of newer brands out there but filled with a whole lot of small collar polos, and Tommy bahama feel.

Interesting articles about Sid Mashburn as golf clothing in WSJ.

Our club covers the spectrum from the guy who thinks Fowler is a fashion icon and rocks the all orange and flat brim

But seems like Galvin Green, GFore, RLX has kind of taken over as the most common. Travis Matthew and J Lindberg did their thing but that faded out.

FootJoy, FJ1857 and Peter Millar is usually pretty safe and what I tend to stick to. I’ll mix in some BDraddy from time to time or something for more conservative or mix in some GFore if I want to be a little louder.

Played the 9 hole municipal course this am. Didn't keep score because when you are bad as i am...

My short game isnt terrible. Not a damnation with faint praise. Like i had some long putts and got them to the hole. Chipped a couple right to the hole. If i played or practiced regularly id get them in consistently. But still takes three to get on the green. Im also fairly consistent. Because no one was behind me id play two ball on a hole and routinely ended up in the same spot.

Best tee shot was n #9 with a 6 iron. My best shot happened by accident. Curved hard right off the tee hit an embankment and popped up to lime 20 yards from the hole.

Attaway - Go easy on the praise being faint - Getting a long putt to the hole with a lag is a pretty good place to be. If you want to start to shave strokes one of the biggest surprises guys have when working to find a way to go lower is how much more important GIR and proximity are compared to putting. Most guys severely overestimate their ability to make putts > 10 ft and overestimate how important those putts are in their grand scheme of their scores.

My favorite thing to see when I'm playing a guy and deciding what our stakes are going to be is the guy standing on the putting green who gets frustrated and can't believe he didn't sink the 15 footer. I'll press the stakes every single time when I see it. To keep it in perspective - I think Webb had the best make stats last season of putts >10 ft - He made about 20% of them over the course of the season.

I never wear pants or shorts made specifically for golf. There’s a lot of performance fabrics that do nothing for me and unnecessary pocket features that look just ugly. I wear pretty standard chinos. Stone color over khaki, because it works with everything. 100% cotton for shorts, but I tried some Rota pants that are 98% cotton and 2% elasthane. The slight stretch seems to matter more for me with pants than shorts, which often have wider thighs.

For shirts, I do think that performance fabrics make a difference in warm weather, so I stay away from cotton shirts. Golf style is funny. I grew-up in Augusta. When I play at clubs back there (not actually there), nobody wears stuff from the big sports brands, like Nike, Adidas, UA, Puma, etc. You get looked at funny when you do. It's much more of the pastels from brands like Peter Millar. It's a much more country club kinda look. It's kinda stupid, but there's a bit of social expectation with how you dress at certain clubs. At my club near D.C., there's a lot more variety. I typically wear a mix of Nike and Peter Millar.

I didn't go to UGA. When you go to college in New England, you're allowed to have a SEC school to cheer for, so I'm a Georgia fan.

I'm not familiar with birddogs. I did try Sid Mashburn cotton shorts for golf. I'm short and don't mind a short inseam, but I thought those still were too short for golf.

Peter Millar striped polos (often with club logos on them), plain Bonobos khakis with a bit of stretch to them. Nothing too crazy. I don't really see people wearing that GFORE/Galvin Greene stuff but I would imagine those are the same kind of people who use iron covers.

A GFORE EMBH hat is on point if you’re trying to get shallow or into USC. Otherwise some combination of Nike, Adidas, Lululemon, PM, Kjus, Greyson, etc. is probably good, depending on setting. B Draddy has some nice stuff too, but very slow shipping.

A bunch of it probably has to do with who your clubs pros have a deal with as well. Nobody wore Galvin Green - New pro came in and had a deal with them. Loaded up the pro shop with it and voila.
