Yes, the Phil Mickelson dress shirt is actually comfortable to golf in

Published

on

When Phil Mickelson arrived for his practice round ahead of the Masters at Augusta National earlier this year in a Mizzen+Main dress shirt, there were plenty of questions.

One that was asked jokingly in the social media sphere: Was Lefty running late for his tee time, unable to stop in the locker room to change into a polo?

Actually, that’s kind of the idea. I mean, not exactly, but Mizzen+Main wanted to make a dress shirt that you can comfortably play golf in…if you want to.

And while some might think Mickelson, a partner in the company, was part of a mere marketing stunt, I can confirm that you can actually comfortably wear these shirts on the golf course.

Really.

Mizzen+Main sent me a light blue solid “Nelson Mickelson Edition” shirt, and I put it through the paces on course. It stretches more than you’d expect, is plenty breathable, and still looks like a dress shirt, rather than athletic wear masquerading as a dress shirt (important for the whole “off-course wear” thing).

Alan Bastable hit on what Mizzen+Main is aiming for in a May article for Golf.com.

“Despite Mickelson’s marketing clout, it’s hard to imagine dress shirts sweeping the golf world by storm. But that was never the point, [CEO Kevin] Lavelle said. His hope is that when consumers see that the shirt is comfortable and flexible enough to play golf in — it’s 85% polyester and 15% spandex — they’ll be confident that it will also hold up when they’re grinding out spreadsheets or expense reports.”

So, maybe you don’t love Phil’s dress shirt look (although the company says sales of the Mickelson Edition shirts have exploded). Maybe you would never wear a dress shirt on the golf course (I personally probably never will again). But–as I found out–you can do so comfortably in a Mizzen+Main shirt.

So, to that end, we say.

Don’t @ me, GolfWRX members.

    Comes with a free bowl of soup.

    How about we stop trying to make this happen, like those blade collars or mock turtlenecks. I know this looks stupid. Phil knows it looks stupid. Ben knows it looks stupid. Everyone knows this looks stupid. It’s not going to catch on. It’s very easy to change from the “boardroom” shirt to the polo shirt. You can do it at a red light on the way to the course.

    I feel very sorry for Mizzen & Mast for putting so much money into the production of this stupid thing, and spamming comments sections, but the faster the Mizzen & Main sink beneath the waves, the better.

    You could probably play golf comfortably wearing a tu-tu also, but that doesn’t change how bad the look is. Same with this, it looks ridiculous on a golf course.

    I own over 10 of these shirts. They are stretchy just like a Nike performance polo. They are the real deal.

      Don’t you feel clammy wet and/or burning hot in a 85% polyester and 15% spandex shirt. Polyester is a cheap fabric too …..

Is this the strangest putting stroke ever seen on the PGA Tour?

Published

on

When it comes to putting, we all have our own little quirks and techniques, but during The American Express, one golfer took it to the next level displaying the oddest putting stroke you’ll see for some time.

Mark Hubbard was on his final hole during the second round of the event and knew that he was heading home from the event – comfortably missing the cut.

With that freedom in mind, Hubbard decided to have some fun and faced with a 10-foot putt for par, the 31-year-old hunched over – after doing an Elvis style little move – and placed his pinky just above the hosel.

Check out the bizarre moment here.

Hubbard missed the putt, and it was a moment that had golf fans on the Twittersphere truly baffled.


 

This is not a putting stroke I can see catching on!

‘Angry Golfers’ – Pro golfers visit anger management in hilarious Euro tour video

Published

on

The European Tour has produced many memorable pieces of content over the past couple of years – but they have just outdone themselves with their latest video: ‘Angry Golfers’.

Filmed in Abu Dhabi, the video stars Tommy Fleetwood who hosts a group therapy session for some golfers looking to lose their temper on the course: Matt Wallace, Ian Poulter, Henrik Stenson, Eddie Pepperell, and of course, Tyrrell Hatton.

Check out the funny video below.

Here’s what some of our members have been saying about the video in our forums:

  • Matty01984: “More amazing work from the European Tour social media team!”
  • Frankensteins Monster: “Bloody brilliant.”
  • gators78: “Whatever this strategic partnership/alliance/cuddle buddy deal is between the PGA Tour and the Euro Tour, the PGAT should launch their entire social media staff and use the Euro Tours. Their stuff is just miles better.”

We can only hope we don’t have too long to wait for more great stuff from the Euro Tour content committee!
