Usually when we see Jordan Spieth, Rickie Fowler, Justin Thomas, and Smylie Kaufman on their off days, playing some golf, it’s usually in casual attire.
And sometimes, not even that.
But following The Barlcays at Bethpage Black, the foursome hung around New York, and enjoyed some dinner at TAO Downtown.
They then booked a tee time at Friar’s Head, and made the road trip to the super-exclusive golf course on Long Island Sound. Take a notice of the backwards hat on Fowler and side flip on Thomas.
See how neat they look once on the course, though, with hats on straight, perfectly tucked in shirts, tight belts, collared shirts.
Proper attire is required while at Friar’s Head. Gentlemen shall wear slacks or Bermuda-length shorts, and their shirts must have sleeves and collars and be tucked in at all times. Golf attire shall be permitted in the clubhouse at all times, provided that slacks and long sleeved collared shirts shall be required for men enjoying dinner in our main dining room. Ladies shall wear slacks, skirts or Bermuda-length shorts, and their shirts, which must have either collars or sleeves, must be tucked in unless they are specifically made to be worn untucked. Flip flops, denim, tank tops, tee shirts, swimwear, tennis apparel, cargo shorts or pants, jogging shorts and other athletic clothing shall not be considered proper attire at any time. Hats may not be worn backwards and gentlemen shall remove their hats while indoors. Spikeless or non-metal spiked shoes are required on the golf course and practice facilities. All golf shoes used at other golf facilities must be cleaned by the Locker Room Attendant prior to being used at Friar’s Head.
We’re also not sure who even took this photo, since pictures are not allowed at Friar’s Head.
Non- verbal use of your smartphone shall be permitted in the following areas:
Billiard Room and Library on the second floor of the Clubhouse when these areas are not being used for general member functions
Use of smartphones, including all of their functions (i.e., phone, email, text, PDA, camera, photo album, etc.), shall continue to be prohibited in all other areas, outside of your car, and they shall continue to be concealed from view at all times (not clipped on belt, etc.) outside of the permitted areas set forth above. Kindles, iPads, etc. shall be considered to be smartphones for these purposes except when they are being used as e-book readers.
