NOBULL Tour Shorts Review

The NOBULL brand is slowly growing since its conception in 2015 and has started to gain traction in the golf world thanks to a partnership with the PGA Tour. In fact NOBULL is the official training partner for the Tour and its gear is worn by Scott Stallings. The company boasts a collection of golf items from pants to polo shirts which all follow their performance wear 360 plan - that every item can be worn for any sport on any occasion. 

NOBULL’s Tour Shorts are just one item in the NOBULL range that I would say are more golf specific than anything else. The material is light and and has an elasticity to it so I was never worried about the shorts tearing or feeling restrictive. The shorts come in two different lengths - 7-inch and 9-inch - a great touch as it allows golfers to choose the length short that they feel most comfortable in. For someone like myself with long legs, the 9-inch shorts work perfectly.

I am a big fan of the elastic waistband and the slight flair that the shorts offer - quite a 90s look to them. They felt secure around my waist and offered plenty of room around the thigh. When it comes to lining up your putts the shorts offer plenty of comfort and give as you crouch down. With their anti-chaffing design there are ‘No Excuses’ for missing a putt. The pockets are deep so you don’t have to worry about tees, ball markers or pitch mark repairers falling to the ground as you continuously reach your hand in and out.

In terms of extra details, you'll notice the ‘NOBULL’ logo across the right back pocket in its reflective print. The shorts also offer a zip pocket on the right hip, suitable to store loose change for your game of skins, or just your golf essentials like a ball marker. It’s a nice touch as it adds an extra space for you to store valuables. 

Monty McPhee

Monty is an upcoming golf journalist having completed his Multimedia Journalism degree at Bournemouth University; where he was also apart of the University’s well renowned golf team. He has had a passion for golf ever since he picked up a club at 12 years old and this love for the sport only grew stronger over time as his game developed and he pursued golf through different avenues. His game took him over to the United States on a golf scholarship and has had him travelling the UK to take part in competitions like the Nick Faldo series and general club scratch matches. Monty worked on ‘The Open’ radio team when it was hosted at Royal St George’s getting to walk inside the ropes with some of the top players like Justin Thomas, Rory McIlroy and of course that year's winner - Collin Morikawa. Monty has been lucky enough to have three holes-in-one in his short golfing career and he looks to continue growing that number. Monty believes the ability to continue playing golf well lies in his dedication to keeping fit through his other passion, which is CrossFit.
