    • I only wear white to match the white sox I wear with my golf sandals.

After seeing Sandy Lyle wear suspenders at the Masters, I feel that gives everybody a free pass to wear any color belt they want.

It would be so cool if Sandy wore white suspenders!

If you have won the Masters and are old enough to collect social security, you get a pass.

Everybody else, not so much…

I am not a psychologist but I have encountered enough, on television and in print, to offer an opinion on the subject.  Wearing a white belt can indicate several things...or not.  It really depends on the circumstances surrounding the individual.  

1)  It could be a part of a uniform.  The guy cops on television shows based in the tropics often wear white belts and might, without really thinking about it, wear the same belts when they hit the links.

2)  The white belt could be a gift.  As such...one might feel obligated to wear it once in a while.

3)  One may have grown up when wearing white belts was normal (along with white shoes) and thus think nothing of it.

4)  It may be one of the few belts one owns.  I own two...one tan and one red.  If I owned a white belt I would probably wear it from time to time.

5)  Or it could be a twisted cry for help.  Although it would be more efficient to simply ask for help...we do not always think clearly when distressed.

6)  Lastly...it is possible that some people like white belts.  There is, after all, no accounting for taste.

White belts should have died with apple hats, plaid pants and the rest of those hideous 70's fashions. (But keep the ladies hip huggers and halter tops)

And when you win a hole slip that thing out of your belt loops and snap it at the putt you just made... that'll really get into your opponent's head.

I wear a white belt if I am wearing white shoes occasionally. I tend to match shoes and belts. Most of the time my shirt isn't tucked in so no one would see it anyway. I don't really care what people think about it but@Piz
I see a lot worse clothes worn on a regular basis on the golf course. Guys wearing jeans, corduroy pants, golf sweat shirts from 1981 and pleated pants! Pleated pants should be banned and burned in every capacity. People make a big deal about a white belt and there's million worse atrocities on the golf course.

Hey, I wear corduroy pants in very cold weather!  Though never wear them in the rain... they can gain up to 30 pounds!  And don't worry about the white belts... they'll be trending back in in 20 years.  And I'll be able to wear my double-breasted suit again, too.

Don't worry, I'll feel ashamed for you.😁 Well I just let you know corduroy is not okay. You're welcome 👍

    • The Smiths should obviously never be allowed to play tournament golf again in their careers. Violence is 100% NO anywhere ever. End of story really. 
    • Worst shot. I still lose balls almost every round, I've shot hundreds of ball OB, shanks, snaphooks and so on. I have two memories of bad shots that stands out a bit more than the rest. 1) This one happened when I played in my first ever tournament back in 2006, the Cresco Invitational at Miklagard GK (a sponsored event for business partners of Cresco). It was a stableford tournament with prices also for closest to the pin on 3 hole 1 and longest drive on hole 7. We all received a sleeve of Prov1s each before teeing off on the first tee (I didn't usually play with premium balls at that time), and looked forward to finally play a round with some fresh premiums. Hole 1 (now 7) on Miklagard back then, a 165 yards downhill par 3 with where you had to carry the ball 80 yards to clear some unplayable "salad", with a crowd, a formal starter to anounce you and the closest to the pin comp....It got to me! All the 3 fresh ProV1s ended up duffed in the "salad".....I won the event though, with a surprisingly low 35 points.  2) This one happened just a couple of weeks ago on hole 3 on my home course, a slightly uphill par 4 usually playing into wind. The tee is just next to the path players use to walk from the tee to the green on hole 2, so on this day the people who just made their approach shot to the 2nd green stopped just next to our tee, well actually 5 yards in front of it and 10 yards to the right (usually a safe place to stand) and made signals to me that it was ok for me to hit my drive. With the spectators I decided to step a little extra on it and hit it as hard as I could.....I hit the ball clean on the edge of the heel and it rocketed towards our audience, clipped the top of the bag (he was fortunately standing behind his bag) of one of them and rickochetted 150 yards into to the wilderness right of hole 2. If he hadn't stood behind his bag, that would have been really ugly....   Best shot:  This one was back in 2006 on hole 2 (now 11) of Solum GK, a short par 4, downhill, into wind, playing 280 yards with a back pin location on a very soft green. I hit my driver so clean. It landed a foot left of the hole and jumped two feet back for a tap in eagle. That was a slow motion moment for me, where I could feel my heartbeat and felt like time stood still for a couple of seconds while the ball was in the air. That feeling... I've holed out a couple of times from between 50 and 100 yards, once for eagle, but this one felt better for me.  I'm on a constant hunt for that feeling you get when you hit a perfect shot.   
    • I’ve been watching a lot of Eureka . Yes I know it’s old, however, I haven’t seen it in a while so I’ve been rewatching.
    • Game 3 & 4 should be some great hockey! I'm rooting for NYI.
