New Sideways 9 T-shirt Proves Tiger is the 'GOAT'

With his recent Masters win, a new t-shirt states Tiger is the GOAT.

Sideways 9, a casual golf apparel company owned and operated by founder and PGA professional Chad Maveus debuted during the 2019 Masters, with apparently perfect timing as its signature “Tiger GOAT” design was unveiled. This is great as it has been difficult for years to find a unique golf t-shirt to wear.

“I always knew Tiger Woods would win another major, but never imagined it would happen during the launch of my new company,” said Maveus.  “I was overwhelmed by the positive response I received while wearing my “tiger goat” shirt during the tournament.”

Maveus conceived of Sideways 9 during his years at Pebble Beach Golf Links, where he served as first assistant golf professional, and later as general manager at Forest Dunes Golf Club in Roscommon, Michigan.  The line is derived from a true player's perspective (sprinkle in a little sarcasm and wit), which all golfers will truly appreciate. Sideways 9 will introduce new designs throughout the year and add a new hat collection later this spring.

“I really wanted to create a casual golf apparel line that golfers can wear off the course,” Maveus said. “All of my ideas and designs are formed from decades of working in the golf industry and countless hours playing the game I love.”

Sideways 9 will be available in select pro shops starting this season, as well as online.  For additional information or to order, access the web site at  Follow on Facebook @sidewaysnine, Instagram @sideways.9, and Twitter @Sideways_9.

adidas Georgia Peach Ice Cream Sandwich Golf Shoes

adidas wants you to know that some majors are worth melting for. Today, adidas Golf announced the availability of a limited-edition version of the popular  Crossknit 3.0  , where the special design is inspired by the Georgia  Peach Ice Cream Sandwich that’s often enjoyed by many during the month of April inside the gates off Magnolia Lane. The footwear will be available in limited quantities beginning April 8 at 8:00 a.m. PT, and only on

While this special design is inspired by the Georgia  Peach Ice Cream Sandwich, luckily after fans unwrap these they won’t melt in your hands. Just like the cookies on the outside of the sandwich, the rubber outsole and BOOST midsole take on a distinct sugar cookie-like colorway, representing the cookie crust of the ice cream sandwich. It wouldn’t be an ice cream sandwich without these sugar cookies, just as the  Crossknit 3.0   wouldn’t be the same without BOOST, the best cushioning in the game that offers endless energy return.

The upper represents the mouth-watering Georgia  Peach Ice Cream portion of the sandwich, with a creme colorway that looks good enough to eat. The water-repellant textile upper of the  Crossknit 3.0   also features reinforcements on the sides of the shoe for support where golfers need it most.

Since the peach ice cream is what gives the sandwich its unique flavor, as an added touch, the  Crossknit 3.0  includes a special sockliner that shows scoops of the famous ice cream.

“The menu items found at the year’s first major are talked about almost as much as the holes on the course,” said Masun Denison, global director of footwear, adidas Golf. “Fans everywhere loved our limited-edition pimento cheese version of the original Crossknit BOOST that we designed in 2017, so we had to whet their appetites once again with another favorite that patrons enjoy.”

The limited-edition  Crossknit 3.0   will be sold for $170 beginning April 8 at 8:00 a.m. PT and exclusively on .
