2020 Golf Polo Shirts

Golf shirts are traditional polo shirts designed for the golf course. Consisting of a collar, placket and short sleeves, a golf shirt will keep players cool in the summer, warm in winter, and will guarantee comfort. The most important things to consider when buying golf tops is comfort, design, style, fit and sizing, as these are the most important aspects. Once this has been decided, then it’s time to start looking at favourite brands, colours etc.

Some of the polo shirt options include the Under Armour Tonal Heather Playoff 2.0 Polo Shirt. This garment has been constructed with moisture wicking material that dries really fast, with a UPF 30+ protection rating to keep you safe from harmful rays. For added performance, a 4-way stretch ensures you can move freely during any athletic movements associated with the golf swing

The PUMA Golf Taylor Polo Shirt is designed with a stretch fabric to give you more mobility through any athletic movements associated with the golf swing..

Another great option is the Galvin Green Miguel Stripe Polo Shirt. This premium quality short sleeve polo shirt is perfect for playing golf and offers extra protection from the sun. It features VENTIL8™ PLUS technology fabric which offers high levels of breathability and excellent moisture management to keep you dry and comfortable when playing the sport of golf.

Polo Shirt Comfort

Comfort is key with all golf attire. When choosing a golf shirt, it is advisable to select one which doesn’t hinder movement or flexibility. Wearing a golf polo which is lightweight, breathable, and protects from harsh sunlight are important features to look out for. If it’s too tight or too baggy, this can hinder your game, so know the size required before grabbing a shirt. Unrestricted movement is a winning movement!

Some of the big brands in golf polo shirts include Under Armour, adidas Golf, PUMA Golf and Nike Golf to name but a few.

Polo Shirt Technologies

Polo Shirt technologies vary from brand to brand but usually offer the same benefits. Most polo shirts tend to have a stretch element to the fabric to allow for a full range of motion in the swing as well as technologies that offer moisture wicking properties, breathability and sun protection. Some of these technologies include SmartTec Fabric (Calvin Klein), VENTIL8™ PLUS (Galvin Green), dryCELL (PUMA) and Dri-FIT (Nike).

Polo Shirt Design, Style, Size & Fit

Design and style is all that matters to some golfers, and fashionable attire is always present in golf polos. A design might include polka dots, stripes, hoops or a more abstract approach. Polo shirts often sport a collar, button placket and the brand logo on the collar, sleeve or rear.

Getting the sizing right is all-important for both men and women golfers, with women’s polo shirts often being closer fitted than men’s. American Golf has a size guide available online, as well as our in-store pros being able to help with any sizing queries.
