Aveo's comfy, stylish solution for big and tall golfers

By Jason CrookNovember 27, 2013, 3:55 pm

We first brought you the good news of someone finally looking out for the big and tall golfer earlier this year. Well we've had the chance to try out Aveo brand shorts and pants for ourselves and it wouldn't be a stretch to call them a huge success.

Obviously, the first thing that sticks out with any article of clothing is the look, and Aveo shorts are no different. The classic style rivals any big-name golf apparel manufacturer. They are available in blue, black or khaki and in pleated or flat front, so there's something to match any outfit.

Where Aveo shorts really shine is the performance and versatility. As soon as you put these on, you will notice how comfortable they are. They fit properly around the waist but leave plenty of room throughout the legs. And bonus: the waistband is elastic, providing an additional couple inches of stretch – so there's always a little more wiggle room. The polyester blend used throughout the shorts make them extremely multi-functional. For starters they are very lightweight, similar to a dri-fit material, and therefore don't weigh you down on the course. They don't accumulate water, either from rain or sweat, leaving you dry and focused on your game. And maybe most importantly, they don't shrink in the washing machine. Other great features that caught our eye were the double-rear belt loops that increase support and no rear pocket buttons, because the last thing anyone wants to be doing is fidgeting with a button every time they want to get into their pocket during a round.

What can you say about the pants other than that they are just a longer version of the super-comfy, stylish shorts described above. The pants come with the same variety of options – pleated or flat front in black, blue or khaki – and are great for the course, the 19th hole, the office or pretty much anywhere else you can think of.

Aveo's shorts and pants are available in sizes 38-44 and inseam 32 and 34. They retail for $84.99 and $89.99 respectively. While this may seem a bit pricey, as the old saying goes, you get what you pay for. And I'm willing to bet there's plenty of big and tall golfers out there who have been trying to squeeze into uncomfortable pants for far too long. Aveo shorts and pants are available for purchase at Golfsmith. For more information, check out Aveo online or visit them on Facebook.

Cabreras take 1-shot lead in Father/Son

By Associated PressDecember 16, 2017, 11:23 pm

ORLANDO, Fla. - Two-time major champion Angel Cabrera and Angel Cabrera Jr. birdied their last three holes for a 13-under 59 to take a one-shot lead Saturday in the PNC Father-Son Challenge.

Cabrera, a Masters and U.S. Open champion, is making his debut in this popular 36-hole scramble. His son said he practiced hard for 10 days. What helped put him at ease was watching his father make so many putts.

''We combined very well,'' Cabrera said. ''When I hit a bad shot, he hit a good one. That's the key.''

They had a one-shot lead over Mark O'Meara and Shaun O'Meara, who are playing for the first time. That included a birdie on the last hole, which O'Meara attributed to the strength of his son.

''My little man hit it 58 yards by me on the 18th,'' said O'Meara, the Masters and British Open champion in 1998. ''It's a little easier coming in with a 6-iron.''

Defending champions David Duval and Nick Karavites rallied over the back nine at the Ritz-Carlton Golf Club for a 61. They are trying to become the first father-son team to repeat as winners since Bernhard and Stefan Langer in 2006. Larry Nelson won two years in a row in 2007 and 2008, but with different sons.

''I'd imagine we have to break 60 tomorrow to have a chance to win, but hey, stranger things have happened,'' Duval said. ''I've even done it myself.''

Duval shot 59 at the Bob Hope Classic to win in 1999 on his way to reaching No. 1 in the world that year.

Duval and his stepson were tied with Bernhard Langer and 17-year-old Jason Langer, who made two eagles on the last five holes. This Langer tandem won in 2014.

Jack Nicklaus, playing with grandson G.T., opened with a 68.

Woods' 2018 schedule coming into focus ... or is it?

By Golf Channel DigitalDecember 16, 2017, 5:46 pm

Two weeks after his successful return to competition at the Hero World Challenge, Tiger Woods’ 2018 schedule may be coming into focus.

Golfweek reported on Saturday that Woods hopes to play the Genesis Open in February according to an unidentified source with “direct knowledge of the situation.”

Woods’ agent Mark Steinberg declined to confirm the 14-time major champion would play the event and told GolfChannel.com that Woods – who underwent fusion surgery to his lower back in April – is still formulating his ’18 schedule.

Woods’ foundation is the host organization for the Genesis Open and the event supports the Tiger Woods Learning Center in Anaheim, Calif.

The Genesis Open would be Woods’ first start on the PGA Tour since he missed the cut last January at the Farmers Insurance Open.
