BO KNOWS FASHION: GOLFWEEK's Forecaddie reports golfer Bo Van Pelt has "taken an equity interest" in Tulsa-based start-up apparel company Flare. Van Pelt said, "From designing the clothes to getting contracts with different things, I'm trying to take a pretty active role." Van Pelt "debuted new Flare pants and shirts" at last weekend's PGA Tour SBS Championship (GOLFWEEK, 1/15 issue).
