Looking for some golf Halloween costume ideas? We have you covered. Here are our top 5.
1. Ryder Cup Captain, Tom Watson
Frankly, the regular Tom Watson is just boring. Ryder Cup Captain, Tom Watson? Now we're talking. Keys to this look: 5 or more lanyards, ear pieces, wires, puffy white jacket, and yelling “you stink” to your best friends throughout the night.
2. Course Architect, Tiger Woods
The regular Tiger Woods is ok, but he's no match for the course architect Tiger. Keys: light blue, 28” waist jeans cinched with white belt, with the baggiest pant legs imaginable. Throw in some old school all-white sneakers, along with a form fitting polo (Nike of course), with some sporty shades, and you’re golden. Bonus for a topographical map in pocket, $100,000 Tag Heuer watch the size of your fist, and if you have a special somebody, a co-partner dressed as Lindsey Vonn.
Special note: If you throw in a cigar, you magically turn into Michael Jordan.
3. Happy Gilmore
The keys to this look: Bruins jersey with Tigeresque baggie blue sweat pants. Look rough. Go to your party with a hockey stick or golf club in hand, or better yet, a limited edition Odyssey hockey stick putter. Just feel the flow…work it, work it.
Keeping in line with the Happy Gilmore theme, we’d be regretful if we didn't recommend the late (It was 1996, but still) Chubbs. Obvious keys to this outfit include a flowing yellow cardigan, yellow newsboy hat, and of course, a right, wooden, prosthetic arm at least 6” longer than your left arm. Tell everybody, "You're actin' like a damn fool!"
5. Miguel Angel Jimenez, formally known as The Mechanic
The most interesting golfer in the world. Of course you want to be him! Find the wig, the cigar, and you’re set…but don’t forget to stretch before, during, and after the party.
Masters Caddie (unisex option)
Old Tom Morris
The Big Break series is like a Honda Civic – you don’t think much of it, but year after year new renditions come out and people just keep on buying in. Nothing too flashy, nothing to write home about, but they just keep spitting out of that assembly line. I am always surprised at how well the show [...]
The USGA’s decision to allow distance-measuring devices in its amateur championships for 2014 is a good one. To me, it’s a no-brainer. To others, it’s a terrible decision. Let's dive in.First, it helps to level the playing field for those who cannot afford or simply don’t have a caddie versus those that do. Searching, pacing, [...]
Lucky Shot? ( See it here) Let’s be frank – had my flop shot not dunked in the hole it would have probably ended up in the 1 point zone. I remember telling Emily after she hit her shot that hers was executed much better. It’s true. Hers flopped over precisely, rolling gently into the 3 point [...]
BBS02E01For those not familiar, the title means Big Break, Season 2 (for me), Episode 1. No this is not about Breaking Bad. Or is it?Big Break NFL is clearly a lot different than Big Break Greenbrier. Teams. Ladies. NFLers. More people, more variables. Even with all of that, it’s equally as fun.When we eventually found [...]
Well, it’s been quite the run.I remember heading to the Greenbrier just hoping not to make a fool out of myself. Remember, I hadn’t really played any competitive golf in the last year heading in. I didn’t know what to expect. I didn’t know how I was playing heading in, nor had I ever participated [...]
It’s remarkable what our minds are able to assess without us even thinking about it – a quarterback leading a posting receiver; a baseball player homering a deceptive curve ball; a hockey player one-timing a hard pass top cheddar. With enough repetition our minds (and body) instinctively find a way to become proficient at that [...]
Let me get it out of the way – mid-range socks are making a comeback. I figured I’d experiment with it a little bit on the latest episode and from my Twitter feed apparently you guys don’t agree. While I’ll never force a trend on anybody, my intuition tells me that mid-rangers are coming back [...]
It’s no secret that in any reality show there must be some editing to the content to make things work, mainly because there is not enough time to show everything. Remember, for every 300 minutes of tape there is 1 minute of the actual show. Obviously they have to make some cuts.While most of the [...]
A lot of you have known about the Saucer Pass for quite some time. You’ve seen the videos, perhaps even tried it yourself, but most of you probably don’t know about its origins.Back in 2008 I was trying to Monday qualify for a Nationwide Tour event in Livermore, CA. After disappointing rounds, myself and current [...]
