Lacoste Shirts

When I visited Bangkok, Thailand for an educational tour in 1997, the tourist guide would tell us that Filipinos are fond of the Lacoste T-shirt. We just laughed because we knew that the fake Lacoste T-shirts being sold at Greenhills came from Bangkok, Thailand.

In golf, the Pinoy Golfer would be proud to wear his Lacoste shirt, not a fake one, even if it is already old and faded. He wants to wear the loose golf shirts from Lacoste because it an expensive shirt and he looks “cool” and fresh wearing the bright and pastel colors of the shirt. The Pinoy Golfer is not only satisfied to wear a Golf Shirt but he tries also to pair it with a Lacoste Golf Pants and Lacoste Golf Shoes.

I like also to wear the Lacoste shirt, not because it’s the status symbol among golfers, but I like the stiffness of the collar. I am fond of having a “standing collar” with my Cotton Pique Lacoste shirt while playing golf. The collar does not bend or fall as compared to other expensive Golf Shirts. Playing with a standing collar would protect the nape from the heat of the sun when you tend to bend when putting your ball on the green. Sporting a standing collar would also give you a “mean-look” to your opponent of which you are much better looking if you are also wearing a nice sports sunglasses.

It is advisable not to wear “fake” Lacoste apparel in the golf course with your golfmates because it is sending a message that you are also a “fake”. The Pinoy Golfer being fond of Lacoste could determine a real from a fake one at a distance.

Seldom you could see Sports Lacoste Cotton Long-Sleeved T-shirts in Lacoste outlets because they are being bought immediately by Pinoy Golfers. This is the most sought after Golf Shirt by the Pinoy Golfer because it covers the whole length of the arms as it protects the player from the heat of the sun and it has a good selection of colors with it. 

For you want to look good and feel good in the golf course, wear a “real” Lacoste shirt during your golf game. Get the pastel colored ones. If you have a nice body and flat stomach, buy and wear the latest stretchable cotton pique Lacoste shirts.

Lastly, don’t forget to sport a “standing collar” look with your Lacoste shirt.

It is Good Friday and it is a very slow day for me. While watching TV on the Solar Sports’ coverage of the Puerto Rico Open’s First Round, I thought of starting a blog about golf in the Philippines. After “googling” on blogs about golf, I found out that there is not much blogs on the Philippine setting. So, I decided to venture on this one.

Five months ago, I started my running blog as the Bald Runner where I renewed my love and passion with long distance running. Now, I am starting this blog to recall my experiences in the game of golf from the time I started learning and playing it. This is also my tool to motivate me again to play golf regularly.

My blog is entitled, “The Bald Golfer” because I am entirely a bald-headed golfer. I consider myself as a weekend golfer and I have a handicap of +20.

So, join me in my stories and hope to play more of golf this time.

Welcome to my blog.
