Pantone Color Of The Year 2018 & Ultra Violet Golf Fashion

A Stylish Golfer's Winter Essentials



The much anticipated early December announcement pronouncement has come; Ultra Violet, a deep, blue-purple shade is Pantone’s Color of the Year 2018 . 

Purple, it must be said, can be polarizing. Research from a myriad of market researchers and assorted color scientists (yes, color scientists are a thing) show that while men tend to dislike the hue, women have a clear propensity for purple. Hence we can assume there may be some disaccord along gender lines when it comes to Ultra Violet, however, early reaction has been surprisingly positive. It’s been referred to as counterculture… but also as regal… both in the same blurb. That might say something about its eventual universality. 

In any case I can already testify to the fact that Ultra Violet lends itself very well to fairway fashion, and I look forward to seeing a lot Continue reading “Pantone Color Of The Year 2018 & Ultra Violet Golf Fashion”

It’s an iconic combination to be sure, with red representing hardiness and valor, while white evokes purity and innocence. Then there’s blue, for vigilance and justice. 

That explanation makes it’s easy to understand why the red, white and blue color palette is so powerful. 

Here in the US, where flags fly proudly throughout the year, there’s a special place for the patriotic color scheme in summer. From Memorial Day at the end of May to Labor Day in early September our streets, homes and public buildings are resplendent in red, white and blue.

So, heading into the Independence Day weekend, it’s a perfect time to show your colors on the golf course. With so many stellar designers doing golf apparel these days, the choices are endless.  Happy 4th of July.

Golf deserves better than this piss poor piece of journalism

If you need evidence as to why professional athletes get annoyed with journalists (a minority I hasten to add), then this is exhibit A.
The Sydney Morning Herald's Editor-in-Chief Sean Aylmer, wrote this gob-smacking piece of tripe this week about a recent interview with Greg Norman. I've been sitting on it for a few days unsure of whether I should give it any more publicity but it's annoyed me so much that I need to get it off my chest.

"My recollection is slightly hazy here. Did the opening of the door knock my shoulder?  It doesn’t really matter. In midstream my body shifted. Momentarily, I found myself pissing all over Norman’s trophy."

Presidents Cup – Top 10 Spots Set, Ryo Fans Rejoice

The automatics are in, with ten of the 12 spots on both the international and US teams set… and here they are.  It’s now up to the captains to make their two picks.  In fact, US captain Fred Couples has already confirmed that one of his two will be Tiger Woods, leaving room for just one more US player… and it seems that pick is still very much up in the air.  “We still have another week, but

Norman: “I think it was the best theatre I’ve seen”

Greg Norman was watching the US Masters this morning, obviously keen to see if one of the young Aussies can delete the memory of his past failures at Augusta National. He was reportedly texting back and forth with his son, agonising over every shot.
After Jason Day and Adam Scott put another second place finish into the annals of history for Australians at the US Masters, Norman immediately got on the phone to express his commiserations and tell them how proud he was of their golf.
“I think it was the best theatre I’ve seen,” Norman said. “And I’ve been involved in some there. It really captured my attention.”
Norman rang Geoff Ogilvy leaving a message and also managed to get hold of Adam Scott and Jason Day. As a man who can relate to finishing second at the US Masters, the call would have been well appreciated.
“I told them I was so proud of them,” he said. “I told them to keep their heads high and keep moving forward.”
