Believe it or not, summer is almost over and the cooler temperatures will be here soon enough. But just because autumn is approaching doesn’t mean golf season has to end. All you need to get some new gear that will keep you warmer, like long sleeve polos and shirts.
Golf clothing has come a long way in a short time. New technology such as moisture-wicking and stretch fabrics are staples in most golf shirts today. Quick-drying shirts will keep you sweat-free and cool on the course, while the spandex stretch materials will enable you to get a full range of motion and flexibility on all your golf shots. Many shirts, including some listed below, also offer UV protection from the sun’s harmful rays. All of these are designed to help you stay comfortable and, in turn, more consistent on the course.
