Martin Kaymer's 'scarf'

post #1 of 30
Thread Starter 

It's called a Buff, and the particular style he's wearing at the Accenture is the 'Black Fly UV'.  These things are great at protecting you from the sun and can be worn a ton of different ways.  No, I do not work for Buff but I love the product as I work outdoors.  I started using it for golf a while back and some buddies said I looked really goofy so when I saw Kaymer wearing it I had to laugh and tell them to put the TV on.

In Europe, they're known a snoods and are mostly seen on pro footballers in colder weather.

I, for one, welcome our new snood-wearing German overlord.

Been wondering exactly what the hell that thing was. At first, we thought it was a turtleneck, but then the announcers kept referring to it as a scarf. I'd never seen a scarf look quite like that. Not exactly my kinda thing, but who am I to judge what the #1 player wears, or anyone else for that matter.?? :-)

 

Thanks for the info guys.

How long do you think it'll take Nike, Adidas, Puma, and [insert golf company name here] to start making Buffs/snoods? A Swoosh snood would be interesting...

Yeah I've been wondering also.

 

It looks like it would be great for keeping hail out of your shirt. I can't believe it's hailing there.

I use one when it is cold, not to protect from the sun. Haven't used one when playing golf, but it is not a bad idea. They are light and do a good job at keeping your neck warm. Makes a big difference especially when it is blowing.

I was thinking the same thing... A Titleist snood. I am not ready for that level of marketing just yet.

There worn mostly buy south americans an peoples from warmer climes in Euro football

Germans wore them in ww2 to keep the sand out, eg Rommel in the desert not Kaymer in the desert

We get a few days like this during the winter.  It'll be 70 and sunny again in a day or two.

This would be nice on the cool mornings that I often golf.  I will definitely consider.  Here is link to where Kaymer got his buff.

I used to wear one of these about 7 years ago when I had my motorcycle. Amazing how "fashion" *cough* goes in circles.

 

You won't catch me wearing that crap though; to me it's the same as these ridiculous tassle scarves guys wear nowadays that look like granny Phyllis's headscarf or a 70's table cloth tied around their neck. money.gif

Here is one from Nike, not a buff thought. More like the snoods european footballers sometimes wear...

Id never wear one but if it keeps him warm, more power to him.

Greatest thing ever. Having the wife make me one this week. It's nice to have a live-in designer, tailor, and maker of odd neck and face coverings.

I cant believe that scarf is going over so well in here. I thought it was hideous. There are some much better options for keeping your neck warm. He looked ridiculous.
