Phil Mickelson’s long-sleeved dress shirt at the Masters. Love it or hate it?

Published

on

While Phil Mickelson and Tiger Woods’ practice round is the talk of Augusta National Tuesday, plenty of eyes are trained on Lefty–for reasons more runway than fairway.

As ESPN’s Darren Rovell tweeted–or more likely presented an image someone sent him without credit–Mickelson is sporting a long-sleeved dress shirt from Mizzen+Main. And is that a Mickelson logo on the cuff?!

No word on how much Phil was paid to do so/if he’s an investor in the company. The performance dress shirts wick moisture and stretch in four directions. They’re 85 percent polyester, 15 percent spandex.

As golf continues its lurch toward the informal, with players in the field wearing high-top sneakers and collarless shirts, what do you think about Mickelson’s “modern throwback” look?

Love it or hate it?

    It would look better if it fit him correctly. Sleeves are about 2 inches too long and it’s coming untucked in a very unflattering way. Ricky’s short sleeve, untucked button-down is 10 times better. I’d still wear it though.

    The fit is loose and gross. The style is not that bad.

      Once an athlete steps off the playing field I am not the least bit interested in them. But that is just me.

        Of course you are not. Maybe some people with kids are. But then again I would never suggest that Woods be a role model for any kid.

    I like the look. Also works well for sun protection.

    It’s better than talk of Eldrick wanting yet another Orange colored driver shaft that doesn’t work.
    A shirt is a vital piece of equipment

    What kind of article is this??????? Really struggling for content? With all that is going on at Augusta this is what you write about? What a joke.

Pat Perez: The R&A “do it right, not like the USGA”

Published

on

Pat Perez opened The Open, as it were, with a 2-under 69, and at the time of this writing, he’s 4 under for the second round and tied for the lead.

Clearly, there’s something Double P likes about links golf. And when he was asked whether he was surprised by how receptive the greens at Carnoustie were after his opening round, Perez shook his head with conviction and said.

“They (the R&A) do it right, not like the USGA…They’ve got the opposite [philosophy] here. I told them, you guys have it right, let the course get baked, but you’ve got the greens receptive. They’re not going to run and be out of control. They could have easily had the greens just like the fairway, but they didn’t. The course is just set up perfect.”

“The U.S. Open could have been like this more if they wanted to. They could have made the greens a bit more receptive,” Perez said. “These greens are really flat compared to Shinnecock. So that was kind of the problem there is they let it get out of control and they made the greens too hard.”

Pat Perez has no problem speaking his mind. While it has gotten him in trouble in the past, you have to respect his candor. The interesting question, as I asked in the Morning 9, is how many Tour pros agree him?

Sure, it’s unlikely any of Perez’s compatriots will join him publicly in his “R&A does it right, USGA does it wrong” stance, but it’d be very interesting to know what percentage are of the same mind.

68 at the British Open in the morning, golf with hickories at St Andrews in the afternoon

Published

Yes, golf fans, just another day in the charmed life (or week, at least) of one Brandon Stone.

Stoney (as I assume his friends call him), came to Carnoustie on the heels of a final-round 60 to win the Scottish Open. All he did in his opening round was fire a 3-under 68. Not bad!

But his Thursday to remember was only getting started as Stone made the 25-mile trip south to the Old Course to peg it…with a set of hickory clubs! Well played, sir, well played.

Jean van de Velde’s 1999 British Open collapse is still tough to watch in LEGO form

Published

on

Gather ‘round, golf fans, for the saddest British Open story ever told–in LEGOs.

Maestro of the plastic medium, Jared Jacobs, worked his singular magic on Jean van de Velde’s notorious final-hole collapse at Carnoustie in 1999.

The interlocking plastic brick cinema begins after van de Velde’s approach shot has caromed off a grandstand railing to land on the opposite side of the Barry Burn.
