Hittin' the Links: Volume Fifty-Five


Recommended Posts

By Jeff Gladchun via TheSandTrap.com
This week, it's all about cool.

htl_title.gifThe explosion of youth in the golf world has done wonders for the game. Golf is now cool. Thanks to the young guns, golfers are now athletes and golf is considered a sport. This newfound level of awesome is unprecedented in our realm and we can all try to look the part, no matter our handicaps. This week is dedicated to cool equipment, cool apparel, and cool accessories.

Hole 1: Footjoy Classics Dry Premiere
These half-leather half-faux-gator cleats are just about the smoothest shoes on the planet. The brown on black two-tone color scheme looks classy with a variety of pant and shirt combination. Plus, its a FootJoy, you know you're getting quality goods. [Link]



Hole 2: Oakley Thump 2
I'm going to be honest, I thought the original Oakley Thumps were pieces of garbage, especially the Lil' John version. They were big, clunky, and flamboyant. However, it looks like Oakley got it right with the Thump 2. They're much slimmer, much less arrogant, and much better looking. There's something to be said for having easy access to music while on the course. [Link]



Hole 3: Ping Hoofer Extreme
The original Ping Hoofer was one of the most successful golf bags of all time and was one of the first to feature legs that actually functioned correctly. The newer Hoofer Extreme is a major step up in the bag world and has a big ol' cool factor. [Link]



Hole 4: J. Lindeberg Clothing
Camilo Villegas is one of the coolest guys on tour, and his attire is a constant conversation piece. This Columbian Slasher is outfitted with some awesome looking threads from Swedish clothier J. Lindeberg as is Jasper Parnevick and countless other swedes on tour. [Link]



Hole 5: FootJoy Performance Rainwear
Only weak lady-men quit their round early because of a little thunderstorm. This excellent looking rain jacket will do its part to protect you and your fragile body out of the wind and rain without impeding your swing.[Link]



Hole 6: Titleist Vokey Spin-Milled Oil Can Wedges
The spin-milled wedges were great, and now they've been made just that much better with the newly available oil can finish. This finish is supposed to add a great feel to the wedges and while they are not out as of yet (they arrive in May) it is certain that they up the cool factor. [Link]



Hole 7: Callaway Golf Apparel X-Series
This apparel line is full of great looking and excellent performing items. Many of which Charles Howell III has been seen wearing and looking good in. While you may not be able to play like CHIII, you can at least dress like him. [Link]



Hole 8: Custom Imprinted Titleist ProV1s
Just one more way to differentiate yourself from the crowd. Get your ProV1s and ProV1xs imprinted with any logo or other similar image. From country club crest to personal photographs, anything is possible with these balls. Go get yourself a dozen. [Link]



Hole 9: Bandon Dunes
Even fully outfitted with great gear and classy apparel, its tough to look cool hacking it around your local muni. Instead try an exotic locale: Oregon. Bandon Dunes specifically. This resort has three world-class golf courses at your fingertips. [Link]
