Kilted Golfing Is A Breeze

BLAIRSVILLE, Ga. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Hitting the links in a Scottish kilt could potentially make golfing a breeze.

The 6th Annual Kilted Golf Classic swings into Blairsville, Georgia, tomorrow (Jun. 12), where golfers wear kilts in lieu of traditional gear to celebrate the town’s Scottish Festival.

According to Blairsville Chamber president Cindy Williams, golfing in a kilt is quite comfortable since there’s more room to move around while teeing off.

She says the kilted golfers look totally at ease on the course, but she can’t confirm if the Scottish skirt makes their game any better.

Williams says most guys wear shorts under their kilts during the tournament, but perhaps “true Scots” secretly opt to go commando.

The skirt-clad men have fun with the get-up and Williams says it’s not uncommon to see them joking around and “swinging their hips” as they swing their clubs.

The golfers are treated to a bagpiper along the course who plays traditional Scottish ditties atop the hills so inspirational, it’s Braveheart all over again.
