Greg: "Arnie, don't trouble yourself, let me hit that shot..."
Arnie: (slapping his knee) "Ha! Greg, trusting you with a shot on the back nine at Augusta is like leaving Osama Bin Laden unattended in a fireworks store."
Jack: "Let's go Arnie...(to Norman) Sorry Greg, maybe that fourth martini wasn't such a good idea."

People have been asking me lately. "KC, what do you think about all the PING guys wearing these big floppy bucket hats on the course when it isn't raining?" Of course you know my answer; I think they should be burned. Bucket hats, if they must be worn at all, are for a torrential downpour or if you've had a recent bout with melanoma. That is it. The only guy I could ever see getting away with it is Bubba Watson. a) his name is Bubba b) he hits it 300 miles off the tee and c) he's usually dressed pretty well otherwise. (See top photo) Anyways, the photo of Chris Stroud above is why the average person should not wear a bucket hat. Chris, you seem to be a handsome and intelligent young man, take that damn thing off. It looks like you sell maple syrup for a living. If you want to wear a hat that's different, channel Jesper in the pork pie; however please read clause 14a of how to wear a pork pie titled "It helps to be from Sweden"

I'm famous! F.H. Cooper in 1919 knew that some day, 90 years later, a saviour would emerge from the ranks to save golf style as we know it. I look pretty good in chainmail even though I don't wear it much. Note to author, it's Khaki Crusade-r, I roll solo...

What if you got struck by lightening tomorrow and the last thing anyone ever saw you in was that P.F. Chang's hat? I know I'd be pissed. I mean I'm sure the whole free dumplings for life thing sounded appealing when pen hit paper, but please have the rest of us in mind and consider changing sponsors and getting a decent baseball cap.
Peace and love brother,

Be sure to check out Marty Hackel's (Golf Digest's reigning "Mr. Style") year-end review of 2008 golf fashions. It appears myself and Mr. Hackel have a similar eye. Marty-and I say this with complete and utter sincerity- How about a job? Let's spread the KC's message to the world; tight pants + crisp shots = higher understanding.

Here is Luke in a cool, colorblock polo from RLX that may never make it onto shelves. I'm really not a fan of the "RLX" buckle that he always wears. I'm a traditionalist I suppose when it comes to buckles - medium sized and rather square is ideal. I suppose an oval isn't bad as long you're not going all Anthony Kim on me. A red and navy ribbon belt or a square, sterling silver buckle with a black strap would, in my opinion, look better here.

I've been seeing a few companies doing "button-down" or "polo" collars on golf polos and I really like the concept. It keeps the collar nice and upright instead of flopping like many well-washed golf shirt-collars have the tendency to do. In fact, I've gone through life hating how many of what we've come to think of as "traditional" golf shirts lack a stable, sturdy collar. One reason I was always drawn to Peter Millar's shirts were their seemingly starchier collars that stood up to the wash.
Here is Camilo wearing a white J. Lindeberg "BD" polo.
