So far, on Golf Questions You’re Afraid to Ask, we’ve covered some of the fundamental principles of golf: we’ve learned its origins and history, important skills to know before hitting the links, some of the most basic terminology in the game— like the fade and the slice — and an introduction to equipment.

However, there is one critical element to the game we’ve neglected to discuss: proper dress etiquette and how to style oneself on the course.  To learn more about the matter, I spoke to Emily Haas — the resident-style expert for GOLF.com, and someone I personally trust in terms of crafting an excellent outfit for the course. You can see some of her work here and here.

Common mistakes and tips for shopping deals

Thanks to the Covid-19 pandemic, Amazon wasn’t able to have Prime Day in July this year, but from midnight pacific time on Tuesday, Oct. 13 through Wednesday, Oct. 14, the sale is on with exclusive discounts for Amazon Prime members. 

According consumer psychology expert Kelly Haws, like Black Friday or Cyber Monday, the idea with Prime Day is that Amazon “tries to throw a lot at a consumer to get them excited about this very limited time opportunity,” the Vanderbilt University marketing professor says.

Given that, it can be challenging for consumers to navigate the sale without over-spending or buying things that they have no use for. So it’s important to be aware of how behave around sales and why, says Priya Raghubir, a marketing professor at New York University’s Stern School of Business who specializes in consumer behavior and psychology.

“It’s not just the very strong cognitive economic benefit

Follow these tips for tux shopping to make sure your wedding attire measures up | Weddings

“Since March 15, we’ve had several weddings where the couples had bought and paid for rentals of tuxedos and suits online and the retailers simply stopped communicating with them,” Lerner says. “The weddings were happening, and the couples had no response.”

The pandemic no doubt has been a contributing factor, with layoffs, closures, mail delays and shortages of manufactured goods and raw materials in the apparel industry, he says.

“When you have things bought and paid for and you don’t communicate with the bride and groom in the weeks leading up to the wedding, that’s a problem,” Lerner says.

Lerner’s shop, Bel Air Fashions, sometimes has come to the rescue with just two weeks to pull everything together. “We’ve had Zoom and FaceTime calls and after-hours appointments to help couples.”

The clothier stresses the need to finalize your wedding attire six to nine months in advance. And to get everyone

Amazon Prime Day 2020: What to expect, plus our shopping tips

Prime Day deals — what will be on sale?

3rd generation Amazon Echo Dot


Amazon Prime Day is chock full of deals across the entirety of Amazon’s catalog, meaning no one person can sift through them all alone. Discounts and sales will also go live throughout the 48-hour event, so while some products may be on sale for a full day, others may only be discounted for a few hours (or while supplies last). That means you won’t want to wait too long after seeing a price drop to buy an item on your list.

As far as deal variety goes, Prime Day is always unpredictable. There’s no guarantee that a certain item will go on sale. However, the devices that are most likely to go on sale during Prime Day are — you guessed it — Amazon devices. Echo speakers, Fire TV devices, Kindles and other Amazon-made products typically fall to all-time-lows during

The holiday season is already a booming time for online shopping. The COVID-19 pandemic only increases the likelihood that when people shop this holiday season, they will choose online shopping over brick-and-mortar stores. However, this also means there is likely to be a boom in online scams.

Already, multiple companies from outside the U.S. are advertising relatively unchecked on the internet, selling – or even just pretending to sell – all manner of products. The items are typically advertised using designs stolen from legitimate businesses and artists, often ripped off from Etsy, especially if those designs have been featured on popular sites like Bored Panda.

When people buy these scam products, what arrives is typically of low quality. That’s if anything ever arrives. Often the company just shutters and renames itself without sending
