Player’s Corner STYLE

Presents for Pop This Father’s Day, treat him to a round and a gift he’ll enjoy while playing. By Suzanne S. Brown

DRESSED FOR THE NINES They might be hard-pressed to admit it, but while watching tour professionals play, guys not only get golf tips, they also relate to a player’s style—be it Tiger’s mock necks or Rickie Fowler’s orange shirts and pants on Sundays. Jordan Spieth’s apparel, sponsored by Under Armour, tends toward clean, updated classics cut for an athlete’s build and made of performance fabrics. Among Spieth’s recent choices are the Vanish Drive polo, $75; Vanish tapered pants, $100; tour cap, $35; braided 2.0 belt, $40; and Spieth 3 shoes, $200. The Vanish fabric is quick-drying, offers four-way stretch, wicks sweat and incorporates anti-odor technology. underarmour.com

MADE IN THE SHADES Just as functional and good-looking on the course as they are at the clubhouse, Peter Millar’s Voyager sunglasses are made in Italy. Featuring a rounded frame and polarized lenses that offer 100 percent UV protection, the style is available with blue lenses and frames or, as shown, with tortoise frames and dark or clear lenses, $248. A pebble-grained leather case and lens cloth is included. petermillar.com

COVER STORY Sparked by their love of golf, Canadian PGA pros Todd and Jeff Bishop started handcrafting leather headcovers in Nova Scotia five years ago—and their Dormie Workshop designs have been impressing players ever since. (Their younger brother Alex is an equity partner, too). Quirky characters are a signature, as are personalized custom designs, which start at $100 and take three to four weeks to produce. Centennial State residents will love the made-to-order Colorado cover, $145, which takes five to 10 days for delivery. The company’s name comes from the match play term dormie, while the cow logo is a nod to the leather used in the products. dormieworkshop.com

FIT TO A TEE PGA pro Chad Maveus says he always knew Tiger Woods would win another major. He just couldn’t imagine it would come at this year’s Masters and coincide with the launch of his new line of casual golf apparel, Sideways 9. Highlighted by the bestselling vivid green T-shirt with a “Tiger GOAT” image (right), Sideways 9 offers T-shirts with messages relatable to anyone who has spent time on a golf course, but particularly to a seasoned pro like Maveus, who worked at Pebble Beach Golf Links for more than a decade before joining Forest Dunes Golf Club in Roscommon, Mich. “We all hit it a little sideways sometimes,” he says, noting that wearing tops with some sarcasm and wit make off-course time fun. In addition to the Tiger GOAT (“Greatest of All Time,” for the acronymically challenged) shirt, Sideways 9 sells a GLOAT (“Greatest Lefty of All Time”) top, and others with such wording as “Green Grass Hustler” and a wry tribute to the dreaded Frosty Ocho (left). Shirts are $29. sideways9.com COLORADO AVIDGOLFER | June 2019
