With golf season fully upon us, and the PGA THE PLAYERS Championship taking place next week, we thought it’s only fitting to feature some of the latest and greatest in golf gear to get you prepared for months of perfecting your strokes.
Here are some great golf essentials for men and women to kick off the season:
-The perfect polo shirt: Nothing epitomizes the classic golf look quite like a clean, crisp polo shirt. The Nike Method Polo Shirt for women and the Nike Colorblock Polo Shirt both feature their famous Dri-FIT™ technology that wicks away moisture. And if you’ve ever played a round of golf under a beating sun, you know just how important it is to wear breathable fabrics on the course.
-Cool and comfy golf shorts: Shorts are essential during the warmer months, and even more so on the golf course. Capri shorts are a great option for the lady golfer. Try the Nike Tech Long Sport Short with its handy cargo pockets. For men, pick a pair of shorts that are roomy enough to allow for a full range of motion. The Nike Core Plaid Short has a relaxed, casual feel that’s perfect for summer. Of course, both feature the same Dri-FIT™ fabric to keep you focused on the game and not the heat.
-Lightweight, sporty golf shoes: Comfort is key when it comes to golf shoes, but it certainly doesn’t mean they can’t be stylish. The sleek PUMA Sunny for women is a great option if you’re concerned about the possibilities of a sudden spring shower. For men, the Ecco Golf Biom has the same anatomical last and super lightweight comfort of the regular Biom Natural Motion series, with excellent traction that’s essential on the course. It also has a water and stain-resistant upper treatment, which comes in handy after a full 18 holes.
