Looking Good on the Green: Choosing Golf Apparel

When you’re out golfing, you’ll want to wear clothes that are comfortable and practical. It wouldn’t hurt if they look great on you, too. Here are a few guidelines to keep in mind when picking your golf outfit:
  • Shirts and Jackets. Most of the time, golfers settle for shirts. If the weather is cold though, jackets and sweaters are often tossed on to add some warmth. The main thing that golfers look for in these two is flexibility since swinging your golf club properly requires a wide range of motion (which is why many golfers go for short-sleeve shirts). Of course, the biggest test for your shirt is actually wearing it and taking a swing. Cotton is usually the preferred material since it is both warm and comfortable. You should avoid silk-like materials since those are for more formal settings than the field.
