Golf Australia Express : September 2013
we wear are now almost as important to our feeling of wellbeing on the course as our ball selection and choice of playing partner. Where once, a round of golf meant simply throwing on whichever old pair of khakis and white polo shirt had the least number of stain, now your choice of attire requires more forethought than your club selection when the scores are tied as you stand on the 18th fairway. ONTHE SURFACE, THE idea of dressing well for your weekly round really doesn’t make a lot of sense. You’re kitting yourself out in your Sunday best—likely at considerable expense—for the express pleasure of looking good in front of (at most) three playing partners, who are most likely of the same sex, and the handful of people you’ll pass on the stroll from the 18th green to the carpark. But that hasn’t stopped the golfing world’s ever-expanding obsession with increasingly garish ensembles, matching tops and bottoms, designer threads and shoes that sparkle. Nothing should really surprise us when it comes to golf fashion. This is the sport, after all, that for decades embraced the wearing of socks outside of one’s trousers. But Ben Hogan would no doubt be turning in his grave if he strode to the tee box and saw some of the kits currently out there on course each week. Rickie Fowler, with his trademark neon Sunday orange, encapsulates the new generation of bold and bright when it comes to flaunting the full feather on the fairways.
