A quality jumper is one of the most flattering garments a man can wear on and off the course. It will keep you warm during the colder seasons while giving you a chance to dress up your look on the green. It adds weight to a skinny physique and streamlines a large figure. This season, we have seen a change in the cut of the neckline in our jumper assortment. Long gone are the preppy and classic V neck lines and replaced are the extremely versatile and flattering crew necks. A variety of our top designers have caught on to this trend and have created unique crew necks showcasing prints, colorblocked colors, textures and even solid standouts. Wear these crew necks as a layering piece under a jacket, dressed up with a button-down or solid on the streets with jeans, these runway pieces are a must-have this season. But wait, there’s more…

Golf Books #159 (Golf Tees Teeography)

Oct 28th
2014

Golf Tees Teeography“Talk about humble beginnings… a pile of wet sand.” The development of the golf tee is the last significant change in the rules of golf. The simple little wooden tee may be golf’s most innovative invention. It has affected golf courses, their length and design. It has affected the creation of the new technology used in the development of drivers, irons, shafts and golf balls. It has made playing golf easier and more enjoyable. It has provided the awe of long drives for professionals and amateurs alike.

The ruling authorities, the USGA and the R&A, did not define the golf tee in its rules until 2004. There are numerous mentions and chapters in golf books on the subject of golf tees, but, at best there is very little information about the history of the golf tee. It appears this category of golfing history has been left unattended and underappreciated, probably viewed as lacking sufficient information, interest or importance. It may be they were viewed as being “illegal”. The actions of the USGA over the past fifteen years concerning the development of the oversize high-technology drivers have increased the need and understanding of the use of these artificial golf tees. But wait, there’s more…

Royal Aberdeen Golf Club (Balgownie Links), Scotland

Oct 27th
2014

Although the formation of the (Royal) Aberdeen Golf Club in 1780 was the birth of organized golf in Scotland’s North East, the genesis of the game in this region dates back much further. In fact Aberdeen’s initial layout, the Queen’s Links, was the subject of the world’s earliest recorded description of a golf hole in 1625 and many believe the game itself actually originated here. By 1887 the club had outgrown its increasingly popular links, however, and migrated across the River Don into the magnificent Balgownie linksland two miles north of town. There a new course was designed by Carnoustie golfers, Archie and Robert Simpson, and later re-bunkered and lengthened by the great James Braid.

Royal Aberdeen Golf Club (Balgownie Links), Scotland

One of the oldest, finest and most underrated links in all of Britain, Balgownie has a classic out and back routing with holes laid out on lumpy links ground along the North Sea shoreline. The outward holes are the most celebrated, running beside the roaring ocean they follow deep coastal dune formations while the less intimidating inward nine are set on a slightly elevated plateau but are equally demanding as they are sensibly routed back into the prevailing winds.   But wait, there’s more…
