Two extremes. Tourist golfers with latest clothing & gear vs. Hoarder golfers with decades old gear
Recently, I played with a guy who looked like he stepped out of 1992.
His dirty cotton shirt has wide vertical stripes like a referee. Shirt had to be 25 years old.
He wore heavy baggy cotton pleated khaki pants. I have not seen that outdated cut on pants in 30 years.
He wore ratty sneakers that looked decades old.
Of course, I knew his clubs would also be decades old. And they were, blade irons and 90s era woods.
His golf bag looked 50 years old, as well.
Everything about this guy was a time capsule.
He was a 100+ golfer, so equipment and apparel will do nothing for him.
It was refreshing to see someone not give a **** about equipment.
In another thread, someone was mocking tourist golfers at the other extreme.
Tourist golfers. You can tell them in a heart beat dressed to the 9s in the latest and greatest carrying the latest and greatest in equipment.
What is your take on either extreme?
