Stylish: The January Golf Digest Cover

I know I'm a homer with not an ounce of objectivity, but walking by a newstand the other day I was struck by how impressive the January 2013 Golf Digest cover looks compared to other magazines and how depressing it was that I couldn't come up with four American golf stars who could pull off the Bondesque panache displayed by Mssrs. Westwood, Poulter, McDowell and McIlroy.

The image was taken by the legendary Walter Iooss Jr. 

Oh, and the stuff between the covers is pretty swell too, highlighted by the Ancient Twitter's year-end quiz. But I know you all already know that because you've read your mailed copy or downloaded it to your tablet!

I was struck by the implication that "Rors" and "Westie" chum it up.

Maybe your colleagues at GD can do an American "Buddies" issue with Phil and Vijay.

Here's a great game to play while standing in line at the checkout - find a shot that doesn't show conveniently exposed watch faces.
Must have felt naked in just a black suit with no logos. Good thing they can still promote Timex though!

I would have gone with Fowler and 3 up and comers from America...

Ryan Moore, Bud Cauley, and Sneds

I can't help it, but my eye was drawn to the magazine to the right of GD. Maybe just a photo effect because of the colors, but I didn't notice the Digest cover at first, sorry

Most in shape guys look really good in a tux, just a truism

Every time I see this cover (it's sitting in my living room), the first thought that pops into my head is: "Who's the guy on the left?" Anyone else having trouble recognizing Lee Westwood, or is it just me?

The GD cover is much better looking than the return of canary boy.

@Amer Corner.... Ryan Moore an up and comer? Really? He has been a professional for 8 years and has two wins on the PGA Tour. He has career journeyman written all over him.

How many PGA Tour wins does Poults have? I lose track. But if 40 truly is the new 20, he is a prodigy.

Only slightly related question: is this the shortest issue of GD ever? There are more pages before the TOC in my wife's Marie Claire.

I had the same difficulty as Jeff, I guessed, rightly, it was Westwood but never seen a shot in profile before and could not be sure
