Puma Golf Shirts – Why Are They So Hot?

The first time we saw Ricky Fowler in that monochromatic, orange outfit on the PGA Tour, it was mesmerizing. He came out with an orange shirt, pants, belt, hat and shoes. He looked like one big piece of fruit. Instantly, his good looks where a hit with the ladies. Not only was his golf swing amazing, but he had a single, unforgetable swagger when he walked up the fairway.

Ricky caused a huge buzz concerning Puma Golf Apparel. Questions abounded: How did they sign this guy? What's up with that outfit? These were some of the rumblings from other golf manufacturers. They were scoffing and scared that they might lose some of their market share to a company that had been on the outs for the last few years. Puma Golf has now turned a new tide in golf shirts and accessories.

For years, the company had been known for their footwear. That is now changing. Puma now offers a full line of shirts, shorts, pants and accessories. Every shirt they produce has a matching pant, short, belt and shoes.

In addition, Puma golf shirts are made very well with 100% Polyester, moisture-wicking material so you do not sweat. They also contain a UPF of 40 to protect you from the suns harsh rays. Most of the product line can be worn on and off the golf course. The pants and shorts have flat fronts and plaids that will make you look like your going to the beach.The colors that Puma offers are exciting, bold and tantalizing. Puma golf shirts are definitely for the young and the fit.

When Ricky hit the scene they did not have enough inventory to fill their orders. In fact, the golf clothing was hard to find in 2011. Now, that has all changed and its full steam ahead for Puma. With new inventory control in place, the company has finally achieved a balance on the amount of pieces they offer. For instance, one of Ricky's hats that was very hard to get a few years back, can now be found just about anyplace. With Ricky Fowler as their spokesperson they are sure to grab a huge piece of the market of the younger golfers.

Puma's biggest rivalry is Adidas. The latter company was at one time owned by two brothers and their ill fated feelings caused them to split into different directions. Now the two brothers fight for market share in the golf industry.

In 2012 Ricky had his first official win on the PGA Tour. Incidentally, 2012 was an incredible year for Puma Golf Apparel, as well. Puma is here to stay and has made their mark in the clothing and fashion industry. Look for Puma Golf shirts at your local golf store or find them online. A word of warning – if you like a piece of Puma Golf apparel, do not hesitate to buy it because it may not be there tomorrow.

Angel Cabrera, son (59) on top of crowded leaderboard at PNC Father/Son Challenge

ORLANDO, Fla. – The Cabreras were not in the original field for this week’s PNC Father/Son Challenge, but their late entry didn’t stop them Saturday.

Angel Cabrera and son Angel Cabrera Jr. fired a 13-under 59 in a scramble format at The Ritz-Carlton Golf Club Orlando, Grande Lakes to move into a one-shot lead through 18 holes at the PNC Father/Son Challenge.

After only earning a spot after the team of Curtis Strange and Tom Strange withdrew, the Cabreras are now 18 holes from victory at this annual bash (the teams of two must consist of a player who has won at least one major or the Players Championship with the other not holding a PGA Tour card).

The first-timers at the Father/Son birdied the first and went out in 6-under 30 before closing in 29 for that lead 59 mark.

“I’m very happy, indeed. It was a great round,” Angel Cabrera said. “Specifically, (my son and I) combined very well. When I hit a bad shot, he hit a good one. That’s the key. I’m very happy to play with him.”

Of course the 48-year-old two-time major champion and his son must now hold off a strong group of chasers.

The team of Mark and Shaun O’Meara, competing in their 10th consecutive Father/Son, closed in eagle to get in at 12-under 60 – good for solo second.

The elder O’Meara, a two-time major champion as well, is hopeful the pair can pull things out Sunday, especially considering where his son is driving it.

The 60-year-old laughed about the fact that he hit a drive as hard as he could at the par-5 18th and was nipped by his son … by 58 yards.

So that part of the game appears all set in a scramble, now it’s if the rest cooperates.

“If we hit our wedges good or our short irons good and we putt good, then we’re going to have a chance tomorrow afternoon,” Mark O’Meara said.

David Duval and stepson Nick Karavites, the defending champions, are another shot back at 11-under 61. They are tied for third with father and son pair Bernhard Langer and Jason Langer (the 2014 champions).

There are four teams tied for fifth at 10 under: John Daly/John Daly II, Stewart Cink/Reagan Cink, Jerry Pate/Wesley Pate and Tom Kite/David Kite.

David Kite, 32, has his twin brother Paul on the bag this week for the first time at this event and chipped in at No. 12 as he and his father made a birdie.

At that point, Paul made a comment about how it’s more fun when David does that.

The twin quipped, You like it when I chip in?

So Paul fired back, “Yeah, chip in some more.”

David did a little better, holing out for eagle from 60 yards at the 13th. Paul jokingly took credit for the shot, sarcastically offering his brother that, “if you need some instructions, I can give you instructions.”

If Paul can offer an edict to his brother Sunday, it might be: Go lower.

With this pooling of talent on this tight a leaderboard, Sunday is likely to offer a fierce battle.

Cabrera & Son take lead in Father-Son Challenge

Published 5:43 p.m. ET Dec. 16, 2017

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — Two-time major champion Angel Cabrera and Angel Cabrera Jr. birdied their last three holes for a 13-under 59 to take a one-shot lead Saturday in the PNC Father-Son Challenge.

Cabrera, a Masters and U.S. Open champion, is making his debut in this popular 36-hole scramble. His son said he practiced hard for 10 days and was certain playing front of cameras. What helped put him at ease was watching his father make so many putts.

“We combined very well,” Cabrera said. “When I hit a bad shot, he hit a good one. That’s the key.”

They had a one-shot lead over Mark O’Meara and Shaun O’Meara, who are playing for the first time. That included a birdie on the last hole, which O’Meara attributed to the strength of his son.

“My little man hit it 58 yards by me on the 18th,” said O’Meara, the Masters and British Open champion in 1998. “It’s a little easier coming in with a 6-iron.”

Defending champions David Duval and Nick Karavites rallying over the back nine at the Ritz-Carlton Golf Club for a 61. They are trying to become the first father-son team to repeat as winners since Bernhard and Stefan Langer in 2006. Larry Nelson won two years in a row in 2007 and 2008, but with different sons.

“I’d imagine we have to break 60 tomorrow to have a chance to win, but hey, stranger things have happened,” Duval said. “I’ve even one it myself.”

Duval shot 59 at the Bob Hope Classic to win in 1999 on his way to reaching No. 1 in the world that year.

Duval and his stepson were tied with Bernhard Langer and 17-year-old Jason Langer, who made two eagles on the last five holes. This Langer tandem won in 2014.

Jack Nicklaus, playing with grandson G.T., opened with a 68.

Tiger Woods to play in the Genesis Open on Feb 15 – GolfWRX

Last season, Tiger Woods withdrew from a press conference at the Genesis Open due to back spasms. This season, Woods will reportedly play in the 2018 Genesis Open at Riviera C.C. in Pacific Palisades, California from February 15-18.

By withdrawing from the 2017 Genesis Open — an event which his Tiger Woods Foundation hosts — Woods ensured that a promising comeback was not to be. At the start of 2017, Woods committed to play in the Farmers Insurance Open, the Omega Dubai Desert Classic, the Genesis Open and the Honda Classic… an aggressive schedule for Woods, who hadn’t played much competitive golf in the previous year due to back injuries and surgeries. Things didn’t go as planned, however, as Woods missed the cut at the Farmers, withdrew after an opening-round 77 in Dubai, and withdrew from the Genesis Open and the Honda.

Since then, Woods has had spinal fusion surgery, and he recently finished T9 at the 18-player 2017 Hero World Challenge. It was there he showed the golfing world — and probably himself, too — that he can still compete among the world’s best golfers when he’s healthy.

At the Hero World Challenge, Woods was consistently hitting 179 mph of ball speed off the tee with his driver, and despite some early concerns with the wedge, he showed prowess around and on the greens. He was yip-less, fast, healthy, and finished 8-under through four rounds. A Tiger Woods comeback seems more plausible now than it has in three years.

Woods will continue to test his game at the 2017 Genesis Open — a start that will come 26 years after competing as a 16-year-old amateur in the 1992 Nissan Open at Riviera. Much like 26 years ago, Woods comes to Riviera as a golfer who needs to prove himself… it’s just that this time around, he has 14 majors and 79 PGA Tour wins to his name.
