It's that time of year again...

If you notice over the next week that all the men in your life are spending an inordinate amount of time in front of the TV, it might have a  little something to do with this:

And of course, even if you don't know a bogey from an eagle, you're probably still a tad bit interested in this year's Masters if only to see how the notorious Mr. Woods will fare in his comeback. I for one am rather curious! Something tells me the muted pastels in his shirt (left) are not a coincidence and are an effort to show a "softer side" of Tiger, don't you think? In previous years his color choices were a bit bolder (right).


I'm trying to get back into the swing of things (ha) with my own golf game and while East Potomac Park is no Augusta (they should probably not even be mentioned in the same sentence), you do what you have to to to get out there on the course.

No matter your golf apparel style, it's safe to say that things have come a loooong way in the last century! (Images from FuzzieLizzie)





Today, golf is one of those areas where you can explore your individual style. Sure, what you wear might depend a bit upon the club or course where you are playing, but still, at even the most traditional golf clubs there's room to have a little bit of fun. These days golf apparel is all over the place. You can be...

A bit sporty (Nike Air Summer golf shoes)

A bit Euro (Camillo Villegas, from Colombia; love how he doesn't wear those frumpy sleeves-to-the-elbows golf shirts!)

A bit "look at me!" (golf bag from Club Contessa)
NEW!  Fern Stand Bag

A bit tacky (Loudmouth Golf Pants)
LoudMouth Pants - John Daly - A-Tisket-A-Tasket Style

A bit trad (monogrammed golf towels from Club Contessa)

A bit daring (club head covers from Club Contessa)
NEW!  Resort Head Covers

Just PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE, I beg you, wherever you play, don't wear these!
FootJoy 'GreenJoys' Ladies' Golf Sandals

And it really burns me up when I see pictures like this. Selena, could you at least pretend to own a polo shirt, or a pair of shorts with an inseam more than 1 inch?

Anyway, it's supposed to be a beautiful weekend, so get out there and hit the links!

A: I love that you have managed to show the EXACT golf bag I have spent the last month coveting, the club covers I stalk online, and even my dirty secret... a penchant for those John Daly Loudmouth pants. It's like you're reading my mind...! ;)

Tiger did indeed show "softer side" I was at the Masters on Tuesday and he was smiling & signing autographs live never before...

Great timing for this blog MoS. We are heading to Augusta EARLY Sunday morning. The cameras never show the spectators except in passing. We needed a clue for attire.
