As we all know, Halloween is a yearly celebration observed in a number of countries on 31 October, the eve of the Western Christian feast of All Hallows’ Day. It initiates the triduum of Hallowtide, the time in the liturgical year dedicated to remembering the dead, including saints (hallows), martyrs, and all the faithful departed believers.
Today’s Halloween customs are thought to have been influenced by folk customs and beliefs from the Celtic-speaking countries, some of which have pagan roots, and others which may be rooted in Celtic Christianity. But how about golf?
Today, I would like to talk about Halloween golf. Most people would put down their golf clubs and go to Halloween parties. This is common, but not so sensible. Actually, you can also go to play golf even on Halloween. An easy golf-related Halloween costume, this costume only requires a mask and some matching clothes.
With your head as the ball, you’ll need to find a golf ball mask, one that goes completely over your head, or get creative with some white paint. The finishing touch is the tee, or the rest of your body. For this you’ll need to wear pants and a turtleneck that are the same color so you will resemble a tee. With tees available in just about any color under the sun you can wear just about anything and don’t have to worry if your outfit is not a more traditional tee color like white or tan.
Bring back the days of Francis Ouimet and Old Tom Morris with an old time golfer costume.This one is available all over the place and most come complete with an argyle sweater vest, tie, plaid knickers, socks and a beret or Kangol hat. The late Payne Stewart put a modern spin on this TaylorMade R11S Driver, most times leaving out the sweater and tie but always rocking some sweet knickers and matching socks.
In addition, it’s easy to dress like the pros nowadays as so many players who play TaylorMade Tour Preferred MB 2014 are tied to specific apparel brands and wear signature outfits. This costume has taken on a few alternate looks over the last few years after some of Tiger Woods off the course travails, but he is still one of the most popular and recognizable players in the world.
However, for young people, something new and fresh is needed. Young people like to pursue something different. Well, then break out the orange. A Puma flat hat, orange pants and orange shirt and all of a sudden you’re Rickie Fowler, a big hit with the younger crowd on tour. A cigarette, diet coke, blonde wig and crazy-patterned pants and you’re John Daly.
If you are tired of dressing yourselves, you can think about your TaylorMade R11S Fairway Wood. They can also be dressed different from others. Or you can get your clubs the same color with your clothes. Things would be surely different if you make some changes!
