The Master’s is here! I can’t believe how enthusiastically I just typed that. Maybe my old age is starting to show itself, but I’m not so sure what is happening to me these days. Like, it’s not that I hate golf. I’ve just never been one to follow it regularly or really enjoy watching it on tv. Sure, a leisurely day on the course is enjoyable, but I’ve always found myself perplexed when my bar guests ask me to put golf on the TV.
But here I am, finding myself writing about golf. It’s ok if you are confused. I am too. I’m not going to sit here and pretend to be well informed about most of the players. I’m not gonna lie about
My love affair with the backsides of sports and it’s athletes is well documented on this site. So it should surprise no one that I’m most intrigued by is this latest trend is this one that is generally favoring a slightly more fitted and athletic pant.

Since it’s beginnings centuries ago style has always been a huge part of golf. That being said, golf style has gone through several transformations over its long history. Due to the need for a vast amount of real estate and the leisurely pace of play, it comes as no great shock its origins were established with the upper classes who dressed to reflect their high status.
This Monday, at water coolers around the country, there will be as much discussion of who shot what as who wore what. I, of course, will be talking about how Brooks Koepka and Dustin Johnson were The Masters.
The Masters of the best fitting pants this weekend.
