White Belts

135 posts in this topic

Okay, I don't want to sound like a jerk BUT I absolutely HATE the white belt look. I think it is horrible and looks weird. Sorry to those who wear them. I am just not a fan. I am a simple black or brown kinda guy. Anyone else feel the same or oppose?

Have a white J Lindeberg belt that I wear with my JL pants and Nike shorts. Think it looks fairly good without overdoing it. I'm a pants size 30-32 and I think if you are over 34, you shouldn't really be wearing a white belt.

I would agree with the over 34 waist. I am a 34 waist but just really don't like the look. Good thing I am not in charge of golf apparel making and marketing. I think someone on the golf channel said something about the white belt and over a 34 waist, he said the Michelin man comes to mind, ha kinda funny

I have a Nike TW white belt, but I haven't worn it yet.  One of my favorite looks I've seen on Tour is the charcoal pants and light blue shirt.  I have charcoal shorts and a light blue shirt, but I generally wear a black belt with it.  One of these days, I'll have the courage to wear the white belt.  I feel you need to be a good player to wear it (my small waist has to help here, too), and that may be why I haven't.

It sounds strange to say but I really like the strip polo look on the course. Next season will look into picking up a few. Is it okay to wear Adidas golf shoes and a Nike shirt? Are there rules for this? I say this because Nike makes some really nice golf shirts.

YOU CAN'T WEAR A WHITE BELT IF YOUR WAIST IS BIGGER THAN 34".....REALLY?!  Come on seriously?!  I have a 36 waist and I wear a white belt and I normally get comments from the ladies on my attire which includes a white belt.  I think a white belt can be pulled off as long as you are wearing the appropriate clothes to go with it.  These are some of the rules that I follow when dressing:

- Your belt and your shoes should match (no brainer).

- Your hat / visor should either match your shirt or your belt/shoes.

- You wear socks that match your shoes...this means no white socks with black shoes.

- Don't wear plaid shorts with a busy shirt.  I try to wear a solid color with plaid shorts.

These are just the basics...I am sure there are more I just can't think of any.

i think white belts should only be associted with low handicappers

and black belts to mid and brown to high

this way we know how good your game is before we bet on the match......[/sarcasm]

I completly agree with this post. Why in the world do you feel I cant I wear a white belt cause my waist size is a 36" I play hockey and have really big legs so alot of times I have to buy bigger pants just to fit my legs not cause of my waist.

And bro thanks for giving people the basics of matching I have seen so many ppl wear crazy shirts with plaid shorts and white socks with black shoes it look absolutely terrible.

I said I agreed about the 34 waist thing because like I had mentioned I heard an announcer say that anyone over a 34 waist the Michelin Man comes to mind. I think its a funny comment. I personally am not a fan of the look and won't wear a white belt. To each there own.

I associate waistlines in excess of 34 inches being overweight and my friends who don white belts don't look good in them. I find it looks best on slimmer people like Camilo Villegas and Geoff Ogilvy. I don't dictate what you should or should not do so don't know why you guys are getting so worked up over it. I probably put on some golf outfits that you may not agree with but if I think it looks good, it won't matter.

I'm not a huge fan of white belts, or really any fancy belts. They simply don't look good on me. I only have one belt anyways.

I was strictly a black or brown belt guy until a few weeks ago. I wanted a white belt to match my shoes. I am currently a 38 waist and have lost 35 lbs since April. I plan on fitting into the 34's or less by this coming July. Either way you really have to get the whole outfit working to sport the white belt. I have received the Micheline Man comment from one or two guys and laughed it off, cuz Im likely gonna throw something back at them anyways. I was actually thinking about getting a red belt so I can wear black shoes, black or khaki shorts, black Tampa Bay Buccaneers shirt and red or black Titleist hat. You really have to plan out your outfit if your going to go outside the norm of black shorts/belt and solid golf shirt.

This is the outfit I usually wear the white belt with:

I find the whole white belt thing lame. Folks trying to look like the pros on TV. For that matter, I think the pros look lame wearing them. Everyone wants to hit the same driver, use the same shaft, wear the same belt, etc.. as the pros. I think it hurts their golf game and makes them look silly at the same time. The majority of us should not be trying to use the same equipment as our favorite pro, and sure as hell should not be trying to look like them. Like I said, it hurts your game and makes you look lame.

It hurts your game and you'll look lame. Ask him again and he'll tell you the same.

Good one

Truth is, I am just mad because they don't sell white belts with cool belt buckles in size 54

Nah, they are lame. In 5 years most of you will agree.

I am not sure I follow how trying to look like a pro hurts someones game.  I understand trying to play the same equipment might hurt someones game, but the last time I checked wearing a certain type of shirt, short or belt did affect my ability.  Unless there is some sort of research that I haven't seen...I just can't agree with you there.

Just for the record, white belts exist in fashion outside of golf as well.

    • 2016 Waste Management Phoenix Open Discussion
      Actually, they mentioned today that it's an environmental requirement imposed by the government; local, state or federal, they weren't sure.
    • Steel vs Graphite generic question
      Spin is OK though? I could be flipping a little but I may need work on Key #3 to get that launch down to where it needs to be... Because I SHOULD be carrying my 7-iron 160-165 with that speed.  Maybe the motor is fine (the shaft), just need to work on in-line impact more...
    • Finding Value in The Used Club Market
      I'm liking this:   That makes a lot of sense.  Local Retailers may be getting some of the last years models dumped on them when the new clubs start cycling through.  I was thinking about doing the demo days thing to get a taste of what is out there.  The R7 limited and R11 Taylormade Drivers were good to me.  I think a X2 hot/Big Bertha/etc/ect would probably be more forgiving.  Still, I look at the clubs of old... the Cleveland Launcher Comp / Callaway Hawkeye and think: "If I can buy that club for $20... and I can buy newer (used) for $50-$100... hmmm.  Spinning the wheels.  Thanks for the advice though I really appreciate it. If anyone has a Driver / had a Driver they loved from (2009-2014) let me know about it!  What did you like/didn't like?
    • My ex-home courses closing, changing - proofs that golf is in decline
      I just found out that my ex-home course, Sunol Valley Golf course, went out of business last month.  I played 2 - 3 times a week for 2 years not too long ago.  The course was done in by shrinking golfers, and 500% increase in water cost in the last 4 years of CA drought.  They could not make money.   Another ex-home course is now doing business as a golf and foot golf (soccer golf) course.  Golfing customers were not enough. Another course nearby (Santa Clara Tennis and Golf Club) is going to turn into a parking lot for a recently built football stadium. It is sad that despite improved economy in Bay Area, CA, golf business is in decline.  They have been in decline since 1990s but most of the courses around here survived 2008-9 recession.  The current drought and the resulting water cost going through the roof appears to be the final nail in the coffin for the weaker courses.   Sad.
    • Injury Question
      I didn't play golf for about 11 weeks due to it being difficult to play with work after day light savings time fell back.  Now, from the sounds of it, I played through the majority of the repair time as I walked 9 holes 4-5 times a week with 1 day of walking 18 for 7-9 weeks after the injury....I know, I'm an idiot. As it stands now I don't really notice it 90% of the time, its just something that pops up on a swing every now and then.  From the sounds of your healing time, I may have caused it to heal improperly leaving me with a hitch....  If I really just need to not do anything and it'll heal over time then I'd gladly do it, kicking and screaming the entire way as I already had a plan in place to push my handicap into the single digits by years end. I don't like the sound of having something happen as "I get older," I'm only 26 damn it .
