Outdoor apparel that's great for golf and tips for pace of play (and other reminders)
Click here to listen.
“The problem is up ahead about two or three groups,” is the usual canned reply from the golf course ranger as our foursome is eagerly waiting to tee off. Patience is supposed to be a virtue but completing a round in over five hours is just ridiculous!
We all know that the publinks are generally known for slow play and other etiquette faux pas so Barry and I, with help from the National Golf Foundation, have made it a point this week to assist both newer golfers and those duffers who have forgotten the basic niceties of the game.
“Baby, it’s hot outside!” With the ‘dog days’ of summer in full swing, golf apparel has to wick moisture while keeping the body cool as well as feel featherweight as you swing your golf club. Royal Robbins has taken outdoor wear to the extreme, incorporating UPF40 into their clothing as well as adding ventilation to assure a gentle breeze at your back. Climbing pioneers Royal and Liz founded this company over thirty years ago “to enhance the lives of their customers and make the world a better place through comfortable, rugged clothing that fits well and looks great.” In addition to garments keeping you cool and dry, remember to drink plenty of water, find shade where ever you can and make sure to use sunscreen!
Do you really want to feel like this during a round of golf?
Finally, be sure to check out my upcoming interviews with both Hank Haney and Jim Furyk. Fans will appreciate the great golf tips and Jim Furyk will even give us some of his strategy for defeating Harrington and Garcia for the coveted Ryder Cup!

If you've been listening, you would know we are not just like all the other journalists. We are entertainment. We hope to leave you laughing.
Perhaps we should have given more tips for pace of play...duly noted.
Also, when we find a product that we either like, or not, we report on it fairly. In this case, Royal Robbins' clothing is really good stuff! Maybe you should give it a try.
Be assured, when we evaluate a product that we don't like, we'll also let you know! Check our archives...
Thanks for listening!
