For the past week, I have been on vacation. As a result, I am combining two weeks’ worth of golf fashion into one supercharged edition of TWIGF. Given how much we have to cover you are going to want to grab a cup of Good Walk Coffee (I suggest the new Organic French Roast) as I ramble on about beer, art, lip balm, and of course, honeybees.

Justin Rose (Bonobos)
My weeklong vacation took me to the great state of Maine for a tour of the amazing breweries the area has to offer (for the record Maine Beer Company was my favorite). The 1/4-zip sweater that Justin Rose wore at the Genesis Invitational had a scotch plaid design that reminds me of my stop at L.L. Bean in Freeport, ME. Not a print that we see on the course much. Nonetheless, it was wicked good. Ayuh.
One of the reasons Maine Beer Company was my most-liked brewery, besides the quality of their product, is their commitment to the environment. Since their inception in 2009, they have been a member of 1% For The Planet and their brewery pledges 100% of the tips received will go to environmental nonprofits.
Bonobos recently released its Spring 2020 Golf lineup and they are also doing their part to be environmentally friendly. My favorite piece in the collection is the new Eco Cotton Sweater Polo. It is made with a yarn using natural fibers sustainably sourced from wood pulp. I guarantee you would look pretty cool drinking a Maine Beer Company brew while wearing this sweater.
Joel Dahmen (Linksoul & TRUE Linkswear)
Somehow I missed that Joel Dahmen has been wearing Linksoul this season! Although nothing official has been released, Joel has also been spotted walking the course in the TRUE Linkswear TL-01. The TRUE x Linksoul Slip-on might be my favorite collaboration so far this year.
Sticking with the sustainability theme; be sure to reduce your carbon footprint by investing in a pair of TRUE ECO Knits. The ECO Knit upper is made from an airy, lightweight, yet durable yarn derived from 100% post-consumer recycled plastic. Meaning each pair is built repurposing waste that otherwise ends up polluting our oceans and courses. Oh, and they are also ditching the shoebox in favor of a reusable shoe/shag bag.
Billy Horschel (Ralph Lauren Golf & FootJoy)
Anyone who spends time with me knows that I am constantly applying lip balm. I caught Billy Horschel doing the same at the WGC-Mexico. I’m not sure what lip balm Billy uses but my go-to is Drew’s Honeybees Balm of the Gods. A small New England company that is all-natural and organic they generously contribute twenty percent of their profits to support research that benefits the honeybee to create a world in which honeybees, and everyone who depends on them, can thrive.
Will Gordon (TravisMathew & Cuater)
Is Will Gordon wearing a pair of Cuater golf shoes that I have never seen before? I hear that Cuater has some really awesome stuff coming out this spring. I also love the woven inspired pattern in this TravisMathew Two Tickets polo.
Jason Dufner (Dunning & FootJoy)
Dude, I love this hat. It makes me think of the Big Lebowski.
Xander Schauffele (adidas Golf)
Greg did a dope job covering the Palace Skateboards x adidas Golf Collection. I loved this look from Xander on Friday at Riviera.
Brian Gay (G/FORE)
Brian Gay is slaying it in the G/FORE Vines Polo. Pairing it with the Core 5 Pocket Pant in Snow, G/FORE Webbed Belt, and the Flamingo accented LE Gallivanters was a total boss move. I might literally kill for the Killer Carry Staff Bag with pink lettering. Have you ever seen a more badass bag?
Danny Willett (Descente & G/FORE)
In my opinion, this is the perfect length for sleeves on a golf polo. If anyone knows where I can get my hands on a Descente shirt, give me a shout, please.
Patrick Rodgers (Oakley & G/FORE)
Maybe it is the Bubba-effect but in the past, I have always associated Oakley golf apparel with being baggy and shapeless. Patrick Rodgers is quickly changing my opinion.
Martin Laird (Galvin Green & adidas Golf)
Galvin Green’s Mick shirt looks sneaky cool during the backswing, eh?
Justin Thomas (Ralph Lauren Golf & FootJoy)
I would be dancing too if I could get my hands on a pair of those trousers. If you want to be the best-dressed guy at your club, purchase a pair of Ralph Lauren printed pants and a white polo. You will look like a million bucks.
Erik van Rooyen (Greyson Clothiers & ECCO)
Because of langue endless limitations, let me leave you with these pictures of Erik van Rooyen in Greyson Clothiers. It is art.
