This month, I’m really excited to kick off my new makeover series. Anyone who follows me on Instagram knows that on-course apparel is a big deal for me, and I’m looking forward to helping GOLF’s readers look their best.
Now, of course, a makeover doesn’t always require a total overhaul. Take my first featured “client,” Marc Owen. As you can see from his “before” pic, Marc already looks great. As a busy, 50-year-old electrical contracting company VP, he plays golf about twice a month, and he was looking for comfortable, swing-easy pieces to give his golf look a modern spin.
I think we nailed it! The all-black ensemble really flatters Marc’s body type, and the printed polo adds flair without going over the top. The final flourish? Matching the color of his shoes to his pants for a classic, streamlined look. Now Marc’s business is electricity both on and off the course.

Where I’m traveling: Las Vegas, Nev.
Recently, I visited one of the game’s ultimate bucket-list courses: Shadow Creek in Las Vegas. I’ve played there in a few charity pro-ams over the past few years, but this trip was to tee it up with a donor from my alma mater, San Diego State University. He won a round with me in a fundraising auction, and we had a total blast.
What I’m working on: A sand plan
It may sound counter-intuitive, but one of my favorite things to do during a practice round is to aim for the greenside bunkers instead of the pins. The advantage is twofold: Not only does it make for good target practice (purposely hitting into those bunkers is harder than you think!), it’ll sharpen your sand game, too. I give myself a point for each bunker I hit, and another for an up and down. Ten points in 18 holes is a really good day!
