LA Galaxy’s Omar Gonzalez Above Par

By : Marissa Foglia for DBOT5

Omar Gonzalez isn’t your average MLS player.

When he isn’t dominating the soccer fields, he can be found swinging, or in this case, seducing any of the golf courses in Southern California….and we love that his oh-so-lovely DBOT5 clubs get to share the Omar Experience while he is on the course.

LA Galaxy's Omar Gonzalez

The 21-year-old Los Angeles Galaxy player was drafted in the first round (3rd overall) of the 2009 MLS SuperDraft. He earned his keep that same season as he won MLS Rookie of the Year Award. We’re happy that our clubs get to accompany Omar as he hones his talents for golf in his free time.

Stay tuned to DBOT5’s website for more info. We’ll be checking in with Omar every now and again as he and his DBOT5 gear make their way around the green!

LA Galaxy’s Josh Saunders Tees Off At Trump National Golf Club

With the World Cup in full force, DBOT5 thought it’d be fun to hunt down some MLS players who have a thing for golf. So we chatted up one of our favorite lifestyle golfers, the LA Galaxy’s Josh Saunders.

Saunders recently took some time out from cheering on teammate Landon Donovan and the U.S., to hit the impressive course over at Trump National Golf Club in Los Angeles.

Sure Saunders’ day may have entailed a challenging course, punk music, and a little anger release on the 18th hole, but it remained a luxury golf experience nonetheless. We’d expect nothing less from a Trump course.

“The views of Catalina were amazing,” he said. “I brought along the radio blasting’ a little punk and ska, DJ’d by my golf partner Rory Campbell, lead singer of Just Because.”

And you already know the 29-year-old Galaxy goalkeeper was stylin’ with his DBOT5 clubs as he meandered his way through the 18 holes along Trump’s perfectly-manicured, yet somewhat frustrating course.

“Got out a little frustration on Hole 18,” he said. “Bangin’ a couple balls into the ocean…much to the dismay of the course manager. Nothin’ like a little 7 iron birdies on the par threes. Probably the hardest course ever. Even the pros say it’s enough to make you take a couple Patron shots along the way.”

Hey, at least he’s honest!

“All in all a good great day at the course. Sun, golf, tunes…and a little Patron.”
