KENTWOOL is the only company in the western hemisphere â€“ and one of 50 in the world â€“ to receive the Usterized Quality Certification indicating the highest level of quality assurance in yarn production. An avid golfer, KENTWOOL CEO Mark Kent had the idea to produce the â€œWorld's Best Golf Sockâ€ after standing in the 18th fairway of the BMW Nationwide Tour Pro-Am tending to blistered, bleeding feet instead of concentrating on the eagle opportunity guaranteeing him a spot in the final round. Born from that moment is golf's leading, premium merino wool golf sock. It enables golfers of all abilities to play their best while benefiting from abrasion and fatigue resistance, as well as KENTWOOL's blister-free guarantee.

Bubba Watson is quite a car guy. He's not in the Ian Poulter category – at least not yet – but is the proud owner of the General Lee, not to mention a bulletproof pickup truck, one sexy Corvette and a hovercraft that doubles as a golf cart. As it turns out, his collection also included the beauty in the photo above – until Friday night, when he sold it during the big Barrett-Jackson winter auction in Scottsdale, Arizona. Watson's car went for a whopping $410,000, and the two-time Masters champ donated every cent of the proceeds to Birdies for the Brave. The car is a custom-built homage to the 1939 Cadillac LaSalle C-Hawk Custom Roadster, which was a favorite of legendary car designer Harley Earl. It's handcrafted out of steel and outfitted with a fuel-injected, supercharged 556-horsepower Cadillac LSA engine with a 6-speed automatic transmission and custom Borla exhaust. This C-Hawk, as it's known, also has air conditioning, custom-designed billet wheels, power windows, a C4 Corvette suspension with DANA 44 rear end, Dakota digital instrumentation, hidden headlights, and both GPS and a sound system. "It's an honor to support the Green Beret Foundation and Birdies for the Brave, who do so much to give back to members of our U.S. Armed Forces and their families," Watson said when he entered the car into the auction a few weeks ago. Birdies for the Brave was created in 2006 by Phil and Amy Mickelson to support combat-injured troops, and the PGA Tour subsequently adopted it and expanded it to include a variety of military outreach and appreciation activities. To date, it has raised more than $13 million for charities that directly serve wounded warriors and military families. The Green Beret Foundation, which works with Birdies for the Brave, is also close to Watson's heart, seeing as how his late father, Gerry Watson, was a lieutenant in the U.S. Army Special Forces during the Vietnam War, and taught Watson to play golf at the age of six. Bubba, by the way, spent part of his day playing golf with John Schneider, who of course played Bo Duke on "The Dukes of Hazzard." Even better, Watson got Schneider to autograph the General Lee – which, he stressed, is not for sale.
