CROMWELL, Conn. â€“ Monday qualifier James Driscoll is not taking any chances this week â€“ specifically in protecting himself against the sun. The 40-year-old Boston native, making his first PGA TOUR start in 2-1/1 years, is not only wearing a long-sleeve shirt under his golf polo, he also wears a scarf that wraps around his face and covers his neck, along with a Byron Nelson-style Panama hat. Itâ€™s a different look from everybody else in the Travelers Championship field â€“ especially this week as temperatures threatened to break 80 degrees on Friday — but nobody can argue about its effectiveness against the sunâ€™s damaging rays. â€œEvery dermatologist would recommend staying out of the sun as much as possible,â€� said Driscoll, who turned pro in 2001 and is making his 241st start on TOUR. â€œI just know everyone should protect themselves from the sun as much as possible.â€� To that end, Driscoll â€“ whoâ€™s best TOUR finishes are two playoff losses in 2005 and 2009 — is working on launching his own golf clothing line that will specialize in long-sleeve apparel emphasizing sun protection. He expects to receive his first samples soon and would like to launch his line within the next year. â€œThe last thing golf needs is another clothing company,â€� said Driscoll, who currently lives in Jupiter, Florida, and was a full-time Web.com Tour member last season. â€œBut this is a long-sleeved golf shirt for the sun. â€¦ â€œI think the future is that people are going to be wearing a lot more coverage.â€� Asked what he thought of the long-sleeve button-down shirts that Phil Mickelson wore at THE PLAYERS Championship in May, Driscoll replied: â€œI like that itâ€™s long sleeves and protects you from the sun. But itâ€™s a little too formal for me. Mineâ€™s a little bit more casual.â€� As for this week, Driscoll opened with a 4-under 66 and followed that Friday with a 2-over 72 that leaves him at 2 under, which had him sitting on the cut line when he signed his scorecard. Provided he makes the cut, he can credit a hole-out from the greenside bunker for birdie at the par-3 eighth, which was his next-to-last hole for the day. And as for what kind of reaction his apparel has received from the gallery, Driscoll â€“ who began wearing a Mohawk a couple of years ago â€“ just shrugged. â€œPeople think Iâ€™m a little weird anyway,â€� he said, â€œso I donâ€™t think people are too surprised.â€�
