Ah, it’s that time of year again when a would-be golfer girl’s fancy turns to the greens. Is there a more evocative golf event than the history-laden Masters Tournament at Augusta National, a veritable cathedral to the sport? For those that can’t make the pilgrimage south to golf mecca, you can catch all of the drama and excitement, including Schedules, Latest Results, Profiles, History and Live Coverage at Masters.com.
If you are looking to tee off with great golf attire, nothing beats J. McLaughlin. Even when your shots are not-in-the-groove, they can keep you looking like a pro. It is the way the “Catalina” fabric stretches, and the flattering fit it provides, that makes it such a leaderboard for both spectating and playing.
TOP 10 DO’s and DONT’S for the MASTERS.
#1. DO Dress Comfortably. DON’T Wear Jeans.
This J. McLaughlin dress is absolutely perfect for the greens. And while you could wear slacks, skirt, or shorts* this dress has it all for style and comfort and is fresh as the fairway. *NB: Women of a certain age, should avoid shorts whenever and wherever possible.
#2. DO Dress in Layers.
Tuck a sweater in your bag or throw it over your shoulders to ward off a sudden chill. Don’t forget to go to Weather.com for the latest update.
3. DO Wear Comfortable Shoes.
#4. DO Bring a Bag Not Larger Than 10″ x 10″x 12.”
#5. DO Wear a Hat.
We recommend Eric Javits packable for maximum wearability and foldability. Eric Javits ‘Squishee® Shade’ Sun Hat $198
#6. DO Bring Binoculars
