Crazy Golf Pants

Crazy Golf Pants

By Oliver Mauk

Golf is traditionally a sport where looking clean cut is a must. Collared shirt tucked into golf pants with a belt is pretty much what is expected of golfers playing at any private and many public courses. This doesn't mean you can't look fresh as hell on the golf course, especially when it comes to your pants. Throw out your boring old khakis, find your inner John Daly, and try some of these pants that are sure to make your friends envious (or make them laugh at you, depending on what kind of friends you have).

NCCGA Week 5 Recap & Week 6 Presidents Poll

By Teddy Rettinger

Week 5 Recap:
This past weekend saw cold temperatures and rough weather pretty much all around the NCCGA, and some tournaments were postponed another week. In Texas, #9 Golf Academy of America - Dallas pulled out the win with a 744. Tournament medalist, Taylor Johnson (GAA – Dallas) showed that he was not affected by the 40-degree temps with wind and rain Saturday and fired a 73-68 (-1) to run away with the win. #3 Texas put up a solid tournament with a 755, who benefited from the return of their #1 player from last season, Campbell Ross. #6 Baylor was hurt by the absence of club president, Teddy Rettinger who played B team due to a hand injury.
