When you walk out on a course these days, what do you see? Who do you see?
More than likely even your high-end country clubs have at least one golfer in every foursome who ditched the conservative Polo and wing-tip loafers for the athletic joggers and latest nike kicks. It's the evolving world of golf. Since Tiger Woods, we've seen a dramatic change in what golfers wear out on a round. It's become an athlete's runway. Statements are being made, but not at the expense of comfort and agility.
I make this point because the truth is that golf is evolving constantly. People used to say golf was a dying sport, but it's very much kept alive by more young people heading to the course and feeling part of a new generation of golfers. And hey, we want to keep our personal style and personalities intact.
When Jay from Thirty6ix Golf Co. contacted me, I was incredibly intrigued. He took the time to write out his whole story - his passion for golf, his journey to get to where him and his business partner Chevy are now, his mission and purpose for contacting me. It was truly an honor to read it and it certainly made me feel like this was a guy who knows what he's after. His brand really means something.
Here's a little bit of what he had to say:
"Fast forward about a year to April 2016. I had quit my job and moved home. Chevy and I were reminiscing about the “glory days” in California as the golf season was just getting underway. We realized that aside from the 6 major golf companies, there weren’t too many options that allowed us to represent ourselves as the golfers we were. We don’t care so much about the latest technology, we’re just going to slice it anyways. We’re not worried about the conditions of the golf course- just put a hole in the ground and we’re pumped. All we want to do is golf as much as possible, because life is short. Thirty6ix Golf Co. is all about good vibes, on and off the course. We want to help golfers, especially millennials, to connect by providing apparel that represents the modern golf lifestyle. Our mission is to grow the game, and the more people that understand what makes Golf so great, the more that will be drawn to playing it."
That hit home for me.
Good vibes, love of the game and just plain fun are why I continue golfing. It got me thinking - this is a brand I could get behind.
Chevy and Jay have created a golf company that caters to the everyday golfer. Want to feel comfortable, still be yourself and make a statement on the course? Wear the Thirty6ix Golf Co. brand. Be prideful when you go out to hit some shots and just have fun with it. There's no need to try to be something you're not.

Everyone wants comfort when they golf, especially if you're living in a warmer climate and enjoy golfing year round. So, when I can find a golf clothing brand that sells comfort and style, I am all in.
Eighteen Eves is an Australia-based women's golf clothing company that has perfected the art of creating women's golf fashion that is both stylish and comfortable. Their mission? To bring more fun, femininity and fashion into the women's golf scene. Honestly, it's a relief to have a brand that cares about the style and comfort of women golfers and it's exciting to be part of.
Today's women's golf clothing is really ruled by only a few top companies that dictate what we have to wear while on the course. But, new and up and coming golf brands like Eighteen Eves are a breath of fresh air. The fit is as close to perfect as you can find and the way the Eighteen Eves crew has paid attention to details to get the feminine look just right, is incredibly inspiring to see.
For someone who cares about fashion, Eighteen Eves has truly given me something to look forward to. In the pictures, I'm wearing the Rainbow Shirt and Skort. The shirt has a nice trim fit and the skort sports a zipper on the side that makes the fit perfect. The feel of the clothing is quality and sturdy, unlike some clothing that is thin and seems like it doesn't flatter. Eighteen Eves has perfected the way the clothes snug the body, but also are free for the movement of golf. And yes, the gloves have the same amazing fit and quality feel.
I am sporting the Polka Dot Navy White glove in the photos and I have to say, I'm not sure I will ever find a glove that I love more than this one. The fabric makes it feel almost like its part of me when I'm out on the course and doesn't interrupt the feel of the club. Plus, the Eighteen Eves gloves are fashionable and come in many different styles and colors to match any outfit.
If you love making a fashion statement on the course without jeopardizing movement, then this is definitely the brand for you. Lucky for you, I've scored an amazing promotion that will only last for one week! This is a great opportunity to share with your friends and family, to also have the chance to win an Eighteen Eves outfit.

Have you ever tried a 6 piece golf ball? Maybe not. This golf ball is the world's first and has some pretty impressive technology to try. The Apex-6 is FORTÈ's most expensive, yet most intricate design. Between the two balls I took for a spin (pun intended), this was probably the one that I jived with the best.
The Apex-6 has a lot of feel to it, which is something I look for on the green. Compared to other balls I've used, it's the most compatible with how I like the touch of a lag putt to feel. The ball is soft, but it doesn't feel dead. There is some hardness to the feel of it that makes me feel confident as it comes off the face of my putter. It helps me keep my head down and feel strong through each putt. I also like that it feels like I've actually hit something, unlike softer balls that have the touch of air.
Around the green? It compares to a top tour ball in terms of green-side spin and feel.
So, what makes this ball so unique? Well, it boasts a lot of incredible technology, including:
Who is this ball really good for? It's probably more apt for a professional golfer or someone who is pretty advanced on the golf course. I personally like it, but a lot of amateurs also prefer Pro V1's, so that shouldn't steer you away from trying it. Just keep in mind the cost.
