Wearing golf socks is an essential part of a player’s wardrobe. Made from a multitude of materials, the correct golf sock can really help a golfer’s game and give them greater underfoot comfort whole walking the length of the greens.
At American Golf we only stock socks which have been specially manufactured for play, and often come in cotton or wool blends to wick moisture and perspiration away from the feet to allow softer cushioning and freshness.
Buying the right golf socks
Although players are free to wear whatever they like sock-wise on the greens, investing in a golf-specific brand will definitely make a difference in a multitude of ways. Golf socks with plenty of padding in the heel and forefoot will offer excellent bounce in every step and recue the risk of rubbing when walking longer distances.
Impact zones, or places on the foot which are walked constantly, require a little extra protection in order to avoid fatigue or blistering.
Golf sock technology
Most golf socks have some level of technology in their design, and they make it readily apparent. For example, the FootJoy ProDry Socks, Nike Golf Dri-Fit Essential II Socks and GOLFINO Dry Comfort Ladies Socks all call out the fact they are most ideal for keeping players dry and comfortable on the golf course, while the Callaway Golf Tour Series Socks, Green Lamb Diana Polka Dot Ladies Socks and adidas Golf Socks are more about spending serious amounts of time on foot without fatigue.
Golf socks are good value, durable and comfortable when worn on the course and can really help keep the sole, heel and underfoot cool and dry throughout a round. There’s a great range of golf sock available right now from American Golf from all the biggest brands including FootJoy, Nike, Callaway, adidas, Pringle, GOLFINO and Green Lamb.
