Like Millennial stereotypes? You’ll love GolfNow’s Super Bowl ad



“I thought I’d get to play more golf when the kids grew up,” says an apron-clad middle-aged dad as he prepares chicken wings for his high chair-sitting 20-something son.

So begins GolfNow’s commercial spot for the big game. If you enjoy MIllennial stereotypes or have felt the pain of boomerang children, you’ll enjoy this commercial.

While the spot is funny, I guess, it kind of breaks down on some level.

“Don’t make the same mistake I did,” the dad says.

What mistake? Coddling his child so that he felt comfortable moving back in to subsist on a diet of pop pop’s wings? Or is the mistake thinking he’d be able to play more golf? And how does the GolfNow app remedy the problem?

And why can’t he play golf presently? Because he has to stay home to feed his son? Preparing chicken parts and resetting the route, generally caring for the “baby”?

Conceptually (an appropriate given the kitchen setting) the concept is a bit half baked, but it has its moments.

“Dad, are these wings free range?”

    Miserable ad. Michael Jordan used to say “Republicans buy sneakers too.” As a younger golfer who enjoys golfing with the few and far between millennials that take up the game, I think it’s a shame this concept saw the light of day.

        I think the ad is funny. Some people wake up looking for something to be offended by. Having said that, why is it that anyone who points out, or suggests, something may be discriminating/offensive/off color they’re called “snowflake”? Are people not allowed to find things offensive anymore?

Which Air Jordan model should Nike release as a golf shoe next?



According to GolfMagic, Nike’s Air Jordan III golf shoe took off from the foul line and soared right out of stock.

Per the site: “Nike launched this new model back in February… but you’ll do very well to get your hands on either them right now as they have sold out on Nike’s website. However, a Nike spokesperson has since commented saying “more is on the way.”

Grammar aside, this is interesting.

Now, it wasn’t long ago that all golf shoes looked like this.

And with all due respect to the Etonic Dri-Lite of yore, and giving wide berth to the traditionalists in the golf footwear space, the transition to sneaker-style golf shoes is cool, isn’t it? I mean, even if you’re monumentally swagger impaired like myself and could never pull the “Js on the fairways” look off, it’s intriguing, no?

With that in mind, and recognizing the demand for the 3s, I thought it’d be interesting to consider what the next Jordan golf shoe ought to be.

Here are my finalists for the next wide release (yes, I know Nike made Ray Allen custom 11s and MJ has had a few customs). Many of these are new colorways of classic (OG) models. I’ve tried for a range of styles and picks from across the Jordan timeline. Images via the excellent catalogue on the Jordan website.

Looks like Tiger is exploring some innovative solutions to his putting woes…



Tiger Woods was 39th in strokes gained: putting in 2018. Historically an excellent putter, Woods was hot-and-cold with the flatstick, even benching his soulmate Scotty Cameron Newport 2.

It looks like Woods may have an ace in the hole for the upcoming season, however, with respect to his green reading and putt sinking. Check out this video posted to his Instagram from the Tiger Woods Invitational on the Monterey Peninsula earlier this week.

Good thing the USGA is restricting the use of green-reading devices and technologies, because this kid looks close to cracking the eternal mystery of the perfect marriage of line and speed for every putt.

Cool stuff, though, isn’t it? It’s also cool to see Tiger so genuinely excited about his “mentee.”

We all know the story of how, after September 11, Woods re-evaluated his charitable endeavors and began to conceive of the Tiger Woods Learning Center. He’s spoken passionately about the students who have made their way through the various programs in the past, and there’s no doubt he cares deeply about the TGR Foundation’s efforts, but seeing a thin slice of that reality is awesome.
