The “Wandering Bares” event at Humpty Doo Golf Course (what a name) in northern Australia, was set up by 69 year-old nudist Bruce Jensen, and his wife #Nice. This year’s event brought out 30 golfers, mixed of men and women, playing golf almost completely naked, with the exception of golf shoes, and a hat for some protection for 16 holes. Since the whole course was not involved in Wandering Bares, the golfers had to skip 8 and 9, or else the clubhouse would have gotten a real show as the golfers made the turn. I mean, more power to these golfers who participated in the event, and began lobbying for an even larger event next year, but this is not the type of golf I want to be a part of, do you?

Sure, it would be nice to just free ball as you’re playing golf in the sunshine, but let’s be practical here….Playing golf naked would be absolutely miserable and let me tell you why.
First of all, I may hit the big stick like the pros, but the big stick I am packing is well, just your average stick, so I wouldn’t be turning heads out there on the links. Second, the amount of bushes, trees, and fescue you need to deal with on the golf course would be brutal if you didn’t have that extra layer of protection. If you are playing naked and you hit it in the woods, but it is still playable, do you just take a penalty and move on? Because I am sure as hell not dealing with prickers and shit while fully naked on the course. Continuing with the concept of a layer of protection, my body would be burnt to a crisp before we even got to the back 9. Sure it would even out my brutal golf tan (see image below), but that doesn’t help when my entire body is so burnt I wouldn’t be able to move. These are only a couple of reasons naked golf sounds like a kind of golf that I don’t plan on trying, but I could be persuaded…
Not to mention if I were playing in the “Wandering Bares”, there would be other golfers who were just letting their balls drag on the green as they crouch to read a putt. That my friends does not sound like a pretty sight as you try and bang in your birdie putt. Now, while I may be completely out on nude golf, there may be one way, or person, to get me stripped down and heading out to the first tee….
Looking back at some nicer weather…unfortunately the round at @monaftermasters was cancelled today😭 It was pouring rain, windy, and cold. But they did a great job getting us ready and handling it all! Excited for tonight. And at least I got to play some golf while in Myrtle Beach at Arcadian Shores. Fun course!
Nude Golf will definitely be a discussion on this weeks episode of High Fade, so be sure to SUBSCRIBE on iTunes. If Nude Golf isn’t your thing, then be sure to listen in for my picks to win the PGA Championship this week in St. Louis, because last week I picked JT to win at the WGC Bridgestone, so I am hot, just like the defending champ….but not as hot as I would be if I were to play 18 holes naked.
