What does everyone think of the new "Blade" collar that Nike has come out with?  It looks intriguing, to say the least.  Rory has been wearing it for about a month now on some of his shirts.

 

I'm thinking about ordering one and seeing how I like it.

So far I am not a fan. Probably it is targeted at demographic younger than me, but I think it looks like he is wearing a regular shirt with something wrong with its collar.

I like the look of it, but I'm not convinced it would be very comfortable.  It almost seems like it'd feel like a mock turtleneck.

It's also $90.

For that price, there are some REALLY nice polo shirts by "premium" companies like Maide Golf.

I'd hate to admit how many multiple shirts I can  buy for  $90. Also I don't want to dress that nice. People will expect to much off the tee. :cry:

For me, it is precisely 3.01003.  ;-)

That one is actually the "roll" collar, but looks very similar to the blade.  The difference is the "roll collar" folds over, almost like a shawl collar, where as the blade does not.

I placed an order for the $80 blade polo.  We will see when I get it in how I like it.  Hopefully it'll be pretty sweet, otherwise it goes right back to Nike.

I had never heard of that site before, but just checked it out, and ut oh.  You may have me hooked.  I really like some of their styles.

Just a quick update, I received my blade collar polo a few weeks ago, and absolutely love it.  I like it even more than I thought I would.  It fits great, and the collar ads something subtly different.  I'll be honest, if they weren't $80-$90 a pop I would buy 1 or 2 more.  For now, just the one will have to do.

 

If these don't sell as Nike hoped I might be able to score a few on sale in a few months.

I get mine at Ross and Burlington Coat Factory. Usually are PGA Golf shirts, Greg Norman, Izod, and even Nike golf shirts for anything from $14.99 to about $22.99. If a golf shirt is priced at $24.99 I say to myself "you're crazy" and put it back on the rack. I do have one  Footjoy golf shirt with my home course name and emblem on it but that was a Christmas present.

As just stated. In a year or two you will be able to get last seasons in Ross or Marshall's etc for less than half price. You may not be as cool as the guy with the current seasons shirt but you will be cooler than popped collar guy...:-P

It's basically a mock collar with a split in the front. Dress shirts with these kind of collars have been around for ages. I like it, but not running to buy it.

Yup. It's also called a banded collared shirt. Looks close enough to me anyway.

Looks like the kind of shirts that a cook working in the kitchen wears...

I think its silly. Is it a golf shirt or a bath robe? 

TTH

Huh?  I fail to see the bath robe resemblance?  Maybe you were referring to the picture with the "roll" collar above. 

 

This is the blade collar polo.

    • Yeah, so I've been doing a bunch of takeaway work over the past week or so to A2 to try and fix the overly bent RIGHT arm that occurs very early on in the backswing. You'll notice this in my somewhat recent video with the sand wedge. I'm 99% sure what is going on there is that my chest and arms are disconnected and instead of turning a good bit with the chest/torso I'm really pulling the club back with like 95% arms. I compared this view at A2 to a bunch of professionals and nobody had anywhere near the amount of flex I did with the right arm at this point. As you noted before, I do get a pretty good turn, but I think it happens somewhat later than it should. To tie this in with what you mentioned, when a disconnect like that exists you essentially don't give your left arm the space it needs to continue to freely turn and instead the bicep of that arm ends up pressing into the left pectoral area which causes the breakdown of the left elbow. I think continuing to work on my takeaway to A2 (I might actually start focusing on taking these practice takeaways to A3) and working on the connection between the torso and arms early on is exactly what I need to remedy this. Thanks for the input. It really helps me affirm that I'm working on the right things (along with my work on not early extending).
    • But $12 extra to ride. That's almost as brutal as the heat.  Either I need to get tougher or the weather needs to get cooler. 
    • You have a nice swing IMO and much better that what I would expect from a 14. The 83 you shot seems like it should be more typical. My guess is you need to get out and play some more!🙂
    • I wish I was as eloquent as you, @billchao. There is no way other pros/pro coaches aren't taking notice of this. There was a Trackman on one of his drives this week. Smash factor was only 1.40 and the drive went over 350. He missed the fairway but was WAAAY close to the green.
    • The USGA states in their guide to setting up a tournament course: "An area two to three feet in radius around the hole should be as nearly level as possible and of uniform grade.  In no case should holes be located in tricky places or on sharp slopes where a ball can gather speed.  A player above the hole should be able to stop the ball at the hole." Of course, this guide is for tournaments but it seems reasonable to expect day-to-day play to generally meet these parameters.  Unfortunately, courses don't always practice what the USGA preaches. Some older greens have slopes that approach unplayable condition when the green speeds are increased to modern standards.  Unfortunately, no course wants to tell everyone, "Our greens are rolling at a 6 on the Stimp Meter!!" When I play, I expect some hole locations to be very challenging and some less. A two putt should never be automatic on every green.  I am not, however, a masochist.  If a course insists on setting the hole locations in extreme positions or brings the green's speed beyond what the design can accommodate, I am with you, vote with your feet and find another place to play.
