IJP Design Autumn / Winter Collection Review

Graylyn LoomisProduct Reviews2 Comments

Ian Poulter’s outfits on tour rarely align with my personal taste. The bright coordinated outfits are much bolder than my usually boring country club attire. However, when I was recently given the opportunity to review IJP Design’s new Autumn Winter 2015 Collection by their PR team, I was pleasantly surprised to find quite a few more subdued options available to golfers. … Read More

Tom Morris Travel Bags Review

Graylyn LoomisProduct ReviewsLeave a Comment

My first three years at the University St Andrews were filled with golf trips all over the UK. I always carried my golf shoes and any additional pieces of clothing in a school backpack that I had used since age 13.

FootJoy Contour Casual Review

Graylyn LoomisProduct Reviews2 Comments

I have always been a fan of “classic” style golf shoes. I considered my high school pair of Adidas Tour 360 shoes to be a radical departure from the my typical line of FootJoy Classics. Combine that devotion to traditional golf shoes with four years of rainy links golf in St Andrews, Scotland, and you can imagine my skepticism of casual, spikeless shoes, … Read More

This review is written by my good friend Andrew Rehfeld, who continues to offer his vast knowledge to the site as equipment editor.
