Bros! Welcome to Brofessional Golfer!
First, a couple quick definitions:
Brofessional – an individual who masters the art of being a bro or living the bro lifestyle. The bro mindset has no age restrictions and no gender limitations. Brofessionals tend to do whatever is necessary to make the most of any given moment or situation.
“Sneaking a flask into a movie theater via the pocket of a Patagonia is a brofessional move.”
Brofessional Golfer – an individual who continues to portray the carefree bro lifestyle on the golf course regardless of age, social status, and wealth.
“Their visors, croakies, and power swings has led me to believe there is a group of Brofessional Golfers in front of us.”
Golfing and bro lifestyle go hand in hand. The golf blogs, communities, site, etc. don’t cater to the bromosapien lifestyle. The majority cater to old men in their mid-life crisis along with pga bound adolescents. The content was too somber and real for me. Hey LongDrive573, I don’t give a shit about your 5 wood problems. I don’t need or want you commenting on a post asking for tips among the community. Save that shit for your private instructor that you pay too much for rather than sending your kids to college.
The popularity of golf has taken a dip in recent years. It’s because Tiger Woods is no longer a factor on tour. When he frequented strip clubs, that tension on his back and hips did not exist. Now that he has “cleaned up his life”, the inability to unwind before and after a round has led to numerous injuries to the aging veteran.
The loss of Tiger has an impact on golf, but maybe it’s deeper than that. Since its inception, golf has always been looked at as the gentlemen’s game. Why is that? It’s because for the majority of golf’s existence, only rich white men played it. They looked to themselves as gentlemen while minorities and women were treated like crap.
The notion of a gentlemen’s game alludes to constant proper mannerisms and extensive work on your individual game. Golf has the capacity to actually be fun. The Brofessional Golfer is about celebrating and embracing the enjoyable aspects of this great game. Yes, we will absolutely take some posts way too far and we will have plenty of haters. But the goal is that we can somehow positively impact the golf community in even the smallest of ways.
