Gift Bag Looks great again this year! Love that we have went back to the CG Caddy Towels, I know some people get tired of towels, but when its hot and humid sometimes you just cant have enough towels, and plus to people can finally get rid of some of their dirty old towels they have been using for way to long that probably aren’t doing any good! I hope the World Am Logo’d Bag Tag is in the gift bag as well, always love sticking them on golf bags that I have! Glad to see the tumbler back and NexBelt (looks like a nice dress belt)!
The only question I have have is about the pullover, the tab says its a Pullover and looks similar to the one from approx. 2 years ago that was 1/4zip, but the info says it says that it is a full zip jacket??? So is it full zip or is it 1/4 zip like the picture, hopefully the picture wins out!April 7, 2017 at 2:47 pm #38060
Not another 1/4 zip pullover from Greg Norman, I have 3 now, a blue, black and a light gray, still got the tags on the gray. The jacket we got last year was much better than the pullovers. I was hoping that we would get this again in another color ( Blue or Khaki ). For the repeat player the gift bag is the same old same old from the last 4 or 5 years, just change the color of the towel, shirt and the pullover. If most players are like me just give me a new different colored shirt and keep all the other crap and reduce the price of the entry fee.April 9, 2017 at 7:12 am #38061chuck coleBlocked
I agree with you Lee !! How about a pair of shoes instead? How many jackets can you wear at one time?April 9, 2017 at 7:58 am #38062Bob NewmanParticipant
The gift bag used to be of more meager contents and was basically a shirt, hat , cart tag and a couple other trinkets. A lot of people complained (basically the ones that enter and will never stand a chance of winning anything on skill) and now we have a gift bag that has a lot more in it, random drawings for prizes , etc so everyone has a chance on winning something to get more people to sign up for the event. I think the WA staff just responded to what people said they want in the survey. this is just my take on what I have seen happen in the 12 years I have played in this event.April 10, 2017 at 1:18 pm #38070
I guess mostly the polo, pullover and hat seem to be the same yearly, maybe a polo with more color to it than just a solid color, the one I got at last years Calabash Cup was really nice! As far as a full zip jacket or whatever I guess it depends on where ya live, I rarely even wear a coat cause it never gets just that cold in Charlotte NC that I need a jacket, I can either get by on a pullover or else I have to wear a real coat! The hat is hit/miss for me, I end up giving mine away cause its not fitted and I don’t wear anything but a fitted hat! Now the towels, I personally cant run out of quality towels, and can switch them up so they aren’t so filthy and covered in dirt/mud!April 10, 2017 at 3:21 pm #38073Jon CraigParticipant
Only my second year, so I don’t have a closet full. I like the gift bag. Myself, I think I will like the pullover. I can’t play in a full zip. Hinders what swing I have(which is not much of a swing).April 11, 2017 at 11:07 am #38076Rick KimbrellParticipant
Personally, I prefer the 1/4 zip pullover to the full zip. Hope to get a color this year I do not already have.April 12, 2017 at 9:55 am #38095James CarterParticipant
I would love to see them throw in some balls or really nice plastic tees. Really glad to see them go back to the CG Caddy towels.April 13, 2017 at 12:48 am #38105
Im with ya on that notion James, maybe in the future ditch the hat for a dozen balls and pack of the nice plastic tees, or something along those lines!April 13, 2017 at 3:07 am #38106
Aaron, I’m like you, I live in Greenville, S.C. so we get about the same weather , might even be a little warmer in the winter, so I don’t wear a jacket to play, just a long sleeve turtleneck, short sleeve golf shirt and a sweater. I liked the full zip jacket last year just as a wind breaker and not to play golf, just easier to get on and off when your in and out of your house. I also like the idea of a dozen top of the line golf balls and long plastic tees. A nice long sleeve turtleneck would be nice too. As for the jacket this year, I guess my girlfriend’s daughter’s fiancee will be get this for his birthday instead of a dozen golf balls.April 13, 2017 at 8:25 pm #38115Dave KOHLERSpectator
LEE, your gray pull over is it light gray or the dark gray and size ? if you want too sell it, I lost my Dark gray, ThxApril 14, 2017 at 8:05 am #38118Bob NewmanParticipant
Guys, let me tell you about a trick I do with one of my windshirts–I have taken one and sprayed it with a Rustolem product called ” Never Wet” (tried Scotchgueard but did not last very long) and use it as a rain jackey. Stays in bag, doesn’t take up much room, and is there when I need it. I mainly use it in cooler weather. I only use a short sleeve rainjacket and this keeps arms from getting wet, tight fitting and does not interfere with swing. Have never actually used it in a downpour as I am seeking shelter then but it does work. I usally treat it again after 2 uses. The Never Wet is sold in Home Depot stores and is the one step product made for fabrics. I have used the 2 step product on shoes and boots. at first I was afraid of messing the shirt up but then I figured, I’ll get another one next year. LOLApril 14, 2017 at 3:18 pm #38120
Dave, the color is GRHE on the label and is a XXL. I got this 2 years ago and is a Greg Norman that was given out at the WorldAm. I think it is called a heather gray color more of a mid or blue steel gray not real dark, but after getting it out of the closet it is not light gray at all. If you are interested let me know and I’ll sent you my phone number to talk about it.April 14, 2017 at 4:18 pm #38122Dave KOHLERSpectator
Lee, I believe the one I lost is a dark grey and was my favorite of the five I got, figures, GREAT news I need a XXL any chance of sending me a picture of it too firstname.lastname@example.org , Thx DaveApril 17, 2017 at 12:19 am #38129
