Are you a cool golfer?

Are you a cool golfer?

If you're not sure, you're probably not. But, the editors at GolfDigest put together a Cool/Not Cool slideshow to help you figure it out.

Cool/Not Cool Slideshow

My favorite Cool/Not Cool slide is number eight - Tiger's Sunday red. When he wears it, it's cool. When you wear it, it's not cool (DANG IT!). For the most part, I am cool golfer, however, according to slide six, I'm not cool. I hate to call myself out on this one, but I've definitely changed in the parking lot before a round of golf.

So, are you cool or not?

this was amusing but it is missing one of my own personal setbacks: Cool - Hitting a draw onto the fairway. Not Cool - hitting a slice onto the fairway two holes over...
Kurt the Knife says:
They couldn't fit me into the list, I am that cool.
bkuehn1952 says:
I really would prefer to be uncool. By their definition, however, I am cool. I do not particularly agree with the standards they selected so I choose to still consider myself uncool.
ppinkert says:
For the most part cool according to their list. However, I did once hit four different trees on the same hole in four different strokes. totally not cool. I gave up counting.
GBogey says:
I'm much cooler than I thought. Curious, they didn't rate a few guys I know who deck out like Ricky Fowler from head to toe.
ctvorse says:
unless you are 17-22 or Ricky, leave the PUMA clothes and hats on the rack. I am 47, 265 lbs. I don't shop at American Eagle, Ambercrombie & Fitch, or buy anything labeled "Modern Fit", "Tapered". "Athletic Fit" I am shaped more like Darren Clarke than Ricky
Bryan K says:
I look good in red, but I guess I won't wear it on Sundays anymore.
Matt F says:
According to their list, I'm more cool than not cool....but I really don't care either way. I just play.
Matt McGee says:
Cool: 72 strokes I took on my last round.
Not cool: The other 22.
Kurt the Knife says:
Hats off to you, sir.
Kurt the Knife says:
Ive been thinking of a new stratgey for my game.
Simple solution, really.

The object is to get to as close to 100 as possible wihtout going over.
shorne says:
Why on number 12 is the guy resting his club in the bunker. Uncool - getting penalized for grounding club in sand.
DougE says:
I just want to know from what company they purchased all those godawful stock photos. They look like they are mostly all from the 70s and 80s. NONE of them are cool, except maybe Tiger. Hey Golf Digest, find a better stock photo source.
larrynjr says:
According to my son, Saturday is red day, Sunday is Purple day. While I wear red on whatever day it happens, I rarely golf on Sunday anyhow.

The other consideration is; if you are concerned with looking / being cool. You aren't.
