Use this fail-proof recovery shot next time you get into trouble

Everyone loves to practice their stock shots when they go to the range. They make full swings and try to hit the ball dead straight at a target. It feels good when you pull them off, and it makes your confidence skyrocket when you get ready for your next round.

Olympic men’s golf field: Here’s every competitor in Tokyo, ranked

Up to this point the focus on the Olympic men’s golf competition has focused on who won’t be in attendance. Some opted out, like Dustin Johnson or Louis Oosthuizen. Others ran into Covid-positive tests, like Jon Rahm and Bryson DeChambeau. Phil Mickelson and Jordan Spieth didn’t finish high enough in the U.S. rankings. Tiger Woods is injured. Brooks Koepka passed on an alternate spot. You get the idea.

2020 Olympics golf odds, picks: Best bets for Tokyo Games include Xander Schauffele, Viktor Hovland

Style Scenario: A Round of Golf with friends

What are you going to wear? Sometimes it’s good to look at a few suggestions then add your own tweaks and ideas. That’s what these are for. Whether you golf or not, taking a few hours to go play 9, a round, or just hit the driving range, is a great way to practice some athleticism, socialize with friends, and perhaps knock back a few beers but work them off while you play. Here’s a casual take on a look for the course. And don’t forget, there’s no shame in BIPSIC (ball in pocket, sitting in cart), when a hole has gotten the best of you.
