White Belts for Golf

  1. 1. What does wearing a white belt while playing golf say about you?

    • I’m on the cutting edge of the golf fashion world!
      2
    • I swing so fast, the vortex created by my arms pulled all the dye color out of my belt.
      2
    • I only wear white to match the white sox I wear with my golf sandals.

    • I don’t wear a white belt because I’m a slob and it would get covered with ketchup from my hot dog at the turn,

    • Belts hold up my pants. The color doesn’t matter to me.

    • I am taking Tae Kwon Do and I am at the first level.

    • I went to Chicago Public schools and I don’t understand the question.

The bit about being a slob does ring pretty true. I generally avoid white clothes. But. ...

I'm not secure enough in my masculinity to wear a white belt. More power to those that are. Hopefully, those guys are also wearing tassels on their golf shoes.

I don't eat hot dogs at the turn, but basically this.

I care what color my belt is inasmuch as I'd like it to "work" with my other items of clothing. That doesn't mean everything is the same color, of course, but if I have a blue shirt and grey pants, and the blue shirt has white stripes in it, I might wear a white hat, white belt, and white socks/shoes. Or I might wear those things white and wear a blue belt.

I may wear a white belt, but at least I don’t play a shaft that doesn’t fit my swing just because it’s blue.

Hey in all fairness. Right now there really isn't a shaft made that would actually "fit" my swing. 

@boogielicious I laughed out loud when a read the part about Chicago Public Schools. Thanks, brother totally made my day.

I thought of a few more things the white belt could say about you.

1 - I'm a female pop star, or female pop star wannabe. 

2 - I'm in the navy.

3 - I sell ice cream for a living.

I bet some of them are wearing pink panties too...
 

But only because they’re comfortable in their masculinity!  😂

A few more suggestions for reasons:

- I have more in my closet than 14 shades of khaki.

- I realize there is more to life than my black work belt.

- I like to look good even if I play like 💩

- I realize cargo shorts should only be worn when no one can see you in them.

Oh, my goodness! Those are funny! 

Best part, I never put anything in the cargo pockets of my cargo shorts.

Wait, you don’t even use them for their intended function? You actually like the way they look?

I use the pockets to carry around my shame. 🤣

Then…? Why…?


They NEVER wear out! They are in-de-f-ing-struck-able! 

I bought some back when Eddie Vedder was making grunge into a thing. ... I still have them.

I wouldn't choose to wear a white belt regardless of the fashion statement it might or might not have.  I'd just get it dirty and it wouldn't look good (probably from the charcoal gray seats of my man-cave car).

I still don't get the thing about cargo pants.  The first time I ever had them (long legs, not shorts), it was required of me--my BDU while in the military many moons ago after I had to give up the flight suit. (Seems like a millennium now.)  I only recall seeing them in civilian life after getting out of the military, and didn't think much of it until I heard that it's somehow a fashion faux pas.  Okay, yeah, they're not real stylish in a sense, but they're more of a utility style piece of clothing anyway.

    • Yes I have 2* weaker loft on my irons. Because I love traditional lofts and I hit it equal distance with 36*, but with more spin.
    • And with that, you lose. (In the minds of many.)
    • Perhaps that guy is(was) the exception? Plus, I think the 6,000,000 number might be way low. ... not that it matters. I get your point and I also immediately thought of that guy. It's kind of hard to argue that he's not 100% evil. For now, I think it would be wise to leave him out of the conversation. That one is still very painful for a lot of folks.  Having said all of that. I don't think we've ever had a president who is(was) 100% evil. 
    • Yeah, it’s an old topic. Was more appropriate here than the 2021 TOC topic.
    • Haven't posted a video in a while. I have been working really hard on my swing... REALLY HARD.  Anyway, I don't have any new video to post. But I do have some old video to post.  I'm just sticking these here as a benchmark to where I was. The first one is a 2009 video of my driver swing. This is back when I was working with my previous swing coach. I was playing well at the time, handicap was around 10-14. My miss at the time was a snap hook.  I know the exposure stinks. Again, it's just a benchmark for me.    The next two videos are from 2015. At the time I was between swing coaches. My handicap at the time was around 16. Although I distinctly remember playing some great and some horrible rounds at the time. At the time I was really REALLY REALLY fighting the snap hook. Some days the snap hook would be manageable and I would score really well. Other times, I simply wouldn't be able to get off the tee. The swing coach I would get about a year and a half after these videos were taken would be the swing coach I'd end up sticking with up until now.  Again, I'm just sticking these here for my reference.
