This has been a good month for the white belt crowd. Not only can they wear them on the course but they can now serve openly in the military. "Not that there is anything wrong with that."

I've been rocking the white belt for quite a while now...I found one of my dad's from the 70's back in '02.  Since I've always like wearing long pants on the course, and prefer black I thought the whi

Who the f cares what you wear. If you want to wear a white belt go for it. I just want to play golf. If my playing mates want to look good then go for it. It doesn't effect anyone. Why are you idiots

Personally, I think you should all meet in the middle with a piano belt.  Black and White, done.  Plus you can all dance in a circle to Michael Jackson...it's black...it's white...yeah yeah yeah.

I don't see why one can't wear a white belt.   wear one and I have been for a long time.  Looking good when playing golf shows respect for the game.  Some of us are hackers who hate others who are better player.  Because a hacker can't beat you, he has to find other ways to put you down.  Let your game speak for you and not your mouth.  Cali

The fact that anyone has an issue with white belts is laughable. Come on people, get a little sense of style. Seeing old guys on the golf course wearing baggy pleated khaki dockers and oversize navy blue polo shirts is depressing. White belts are fashionable and contemporary. They also look classy when paired with the correct shoes and overall outfit. They look a hell of a lot nicer than the old brown leather braided belts some of you guys are probably still wearing. Look good, feel good, play good.

I guess we all have a little to much time on our hands.  I am not sure what is more depressing the fact that this thread was even started?  or the fact there are 113 replies to it?  Or the fact that I just wasted 10 minutes of my morning reading the first 3 pages?  I have a 36 inch waist and I own a white Puma belt....I wasn't sure if I looked stupid but now I know I do.....Belt is going in the trash thanks guys I am glad this is cleared up, it is a huge weight off my shoulders.

I just can not look that flashy out on the range.

Black or Grey slacks, once in a while black or gray shorts.

White, black or Blue polo I don't tuck it in.

White and Black Nike Shoes

Black socks

Black, white or blue hat.

Black and White bag.

I like everything simple maybe one day i will get a more colorful shirt or bag?

I know a bit boring.

I like a white belt with white pants, solid color polo, (mostly) white shoes. To me that's pretty conservative golf attire.

Along with the ban on anchoring belly putters, the USGA is considering a ban on male golfers over age 40 wearing white belts.

And female golfers under the age of 30 will be prohibited from wearing long pants.

I'll have to stock up on those "eggshell" belts for five years from now then.

Hey now, I bought my very first white belt* at 43! Mid-life crisis, probably -- but cheaper than a Harley and/or 25-year-old dental hygienist.

(* Snakeskin, with a black chrome buckle the size of a pack of cards. Oh yeah, Stretch is styling.)

    • Played Quail Brook today, birdied 16 in dramatic fashion. New one for the away composite.
    • I will be brief, since others have weighed in and I echo the vast majority of what they've said (plus I love bullet points).  Naga-Waukee War Memorial - 6 A fun course, architecturally interesting Several nice views Walkable Passes the "I'd play here often" test Club at Lac La Belle - 6.5 Great Parkland golf.  I think the score suffered a little because all the other courses were so unique, but if this place were near my house it'd be one of the better courses available to play publicly. Walkable Firm, well-maintained greens with interesting contours Good combination of tough holes and less-challenging ones Not many real recovery options on a bad shot - most often, you're punching out from trees or laying up from a fairway bunker Passes the "I'd play here often" test  Favorite hole: #16 Lawsonia Links - 8 Unique and visually interesting Walkable Well-maintained greens with interesting contours, with play varying based on hole location (2) Par-3's were too long for me to really enjoy playing them Too many blind tee shots Some of the most fun approach shots I've had to play Passes the "I'd drive a couple hours to play here" test Favorite hole: #7 Mammoth Dunes - 8 Visually stunning Walkable Huge greens and fairways Turns out, I really enjoy "resort golf".  Separation value (which @iacas) referred to above is different for a 14-hcp...I liked that a wider range of shots were rewarded, but you still have to hit the ball solidly. Passes the "I'd drive a long way to stay/play here again" test Sand Valley - 8.5 Visually stunning Walkable Huge greens and fairways This is an aspirational course for me - breaking 90 the second day, even from an easier set of tees, felt like a real accomplishment...something I had to work damn hard for.  This is the kind of course I want to be good enough to play well.  At the end of the day, that's what ticked it 0.5 above Mammoth Dunes. Passes the "I'd drive a long way to stay/play here again" test
    • Our school district announced that they are going back to masks. It will be required for anyone under the age of 11, and then strongly recommended for anyone not vaccinated and recommended for anyone vaccinated. My wife (vaccinated) will likely wear one. My son will have to wear one. Honestly, I’m a little relieved. I think it’s the right choice, given the circumstances. There are probably better ways to do it, but they would involve mandating the vaccine for students and staff. I’m betting that’s coming before the start of 2022, but this is good enough in the interim. 
    • Working with my instructor on some simple grip and setup issues. I actually shortened my driver shaft and regripped with the same grip(gotta love pure grips) after testing some things out. I then added a bit of throw in the DS as mentioned in the last post to get some nice high ball flights with lots of carry and no more bottom half strikes. I am really liking the extension post impact, might need to work on the upper center getting a bit more forward but good progress for now. I don't need as much of a Bubba move as @saevel25 pointed out that I had at SV to counter an over rotating clubface. This will be counted as my yearly swing thread post with video. 😉  
    • This drill will help more for that. Try and keep the right elbow from bending more than 90 degrees too.
