Turf war over golf wear might be brewing
Many of Hawaii's golf country clubs zealously impose a "collared-shirt" rule. They turn you away if you are wearing what they consider a lowly T-shirt or you must buy a collared golf shirt in their pro shops in order to play.
But then Tiger woods started wearing "un-collared" shirts in tournaments such as the Open and even (shudder) the Masters. Soon other golfers like Retief Goosen, David Duval, Charles Howell and K.J. Choi started wearing the same, and well-known golf brands such as Nike and Asworth and Callaway started marketing collarless shirts and calling them by cute names like WindCheats and Mocks and woks and such.
But let's face it, a T-shirt by any other name is still a T-shirt. So what will our hoity-toity golf courses do now? Will they still stop you from wearing a T-shirt to play their courses when they are beginning to carry such collarless golf shirts in their own shops? Or will they impose another rule, that only T-shirts with well-known brand names sold in their shops are acceptable?
