Golf on Kickstarter: Abendroth Golf is launching a new women’s jogger pant designed for both on and off the course

Published

on

Editor’s Note: Although we haven’t done so since the now-famous (you’re welcome) Erik Anders Lang’s 2014 Kickstarter, we’ve long wanted to feature more golf-related products in development, which we think dovetails with our “first to know” orientation. With that in mind, Emily Farrell’s Abendroth Golf pants are getting some buzz on social media, and we found the effort worthy of a restart to the initiative, which we’re brilliantly calling “Golf on Kickstarter.” Drop us a line if you spot any other products you find worthy of a feature!

Abendroth Golf is bringing a new women’s professional golf pant to the market, which is designed to be fully functional both on and off the course.

The Peggy Pant, is the creation of Abendroth founder and PGA Professional, Emily Farrell, and focuses on three core values “Feminine, Fit and Function”.

Femininely cut high-waisted, the Peggy Pant features a four-way stretch, water-resistant, sweat-wicking material to allow female golfers to play their best in all weather conditions.

The jogger performance pants also contain four pockets big enough to comfortably hold your scorecard and other golf essentials, plus a hidden side zipper pocket for a phone (can fit up to iPhone X) or other small valuables.

@europeantour

Tiger Woods may not be playing at this week’s WGC-Mexico, but those in the field who are will see a new commemorative plaque on the ninth hole dedicated to a shot from the 15-time major champion at the 2019 tournament.

The plaque sits just outside the fairway bunker on the par-4 ninth hole and pays homage to Woods’ spectacular 134-yard shot with a 9-iron which he carved around a tree and spun to 12-feet.

Check out the shot below.

Woods went onto miss the putt, and eventually finished the event in a tie for 10th place.

Do you feel the shot merits its own plaque, WRXers?

Let us know your thoughts!

Brooks Koepka talks the Olympics, Kobe Bryant, and Tiger at the Masters in a SiriusXM Town Hall broadcast

While Brooks Koepka’s comments on SiriusXM regarding Patrick Reed grabbed the headlines this week, the four-time major champion spoke about several interesting subjects in the town hall broadcast, including the Olympics, Kobe Bryant and what Tiger Woods said to him following the 2019 Masters.

On the subject of the Olympics, Koepka stated how he was currently on the fence about the event, explaining how he believes it would be “cool to be an Olympian” but that it has “thrown a kind of a wrench in the schedule.”

“Right now, to be honest with you, I’m kind of 50-50. I want to do it, yes, I think it would be awesome to do. But at the same time we have majors, WGCs, the playoffs, its all kind of… I mean, these (motions to PGA Championship trophy) take it out of me, I’ll be honest with you. You come down and I need two days just to kind of mentally recharge.

It’ll be interesting just the timing of it, where it is at. The playoffs are kind of important. I’d like $15 mil. I think that’d be nice. I’d like to be fresh for that. If anything I’m leaning more towards going. It’s an honor. You play for your country.”

On hearing of Kobe Bryant’s death, Koepka spoke about how he was blown away, how he found it difficult to believe it was real, and how despite never meeting Bryant, the loss hit him so hard that he ended up crying in his hotel room.

As Bryant was his childhood idol, Koepka said he got on the phone that night to Nike to ensure that the unfinished project of his Kobe Bryant-inspired golf shoes would be completed to honor the basketball great.

The 31-year-old lost out to Tiger Woods by one stroke at the 2019 Masters, and recounted how Woods was quick to remind him that this levelled up their affair after Koepka had seen off Woods’ challenge at the 2018 PGA Championship.

“Augusta was interesting because, coming down the stretch I rinsed one on 12. We all know what happened. We all know he won. But it was crazy walking off the green and being there to congratulate him. The first thing he said was, ‘One-and-one now.’ (laughs)”

The entire Brooks Koepka Town Hall special will be rebroadcast on SiriusXM PGA Tour Radio on Wednesday, Feb. 19 (10:00 pm ET), Friday, Feb. 21 (8:00 pm ET) and Sunday, Feb. 23 (noon ET). The full special is also available now on SiriusXM On Demand.
