Hope springs eternal.

The words adorning the front of our Optimist Hooded Tee are guaranteed to stir the golfer’s soul. This lightweight, any-season layering piece includes a Broken Tee Saw graphic on the right shoulder, and one of our favorite passages from the book above the front pocket.

“We found solace in a game that punishes its participants, only to offer them flashes of future success so tantalizing that they can’t dream of giving it up. Despite its cruelty, golf is a game that encourages irrational optimism.”

—Charlie Warzel, from Above Average – TGJ No. 19
