Golfers, Get Your Waterproofs and Your Game On!

Don’t let inclement weather stop your play this winter. With the leading golf and sports brands offering a great choice of high-performance golf clothing, you can get your waterproofs and your game on!

Here’s a few tips on what to look for from your winter golf clothing:

Waterproof Jackets

Waterproof Jackets

The incredibly lightweight structure of the latest waterproof jackets makes it possible to fold them into a small bundle and stash them in your golf bag to keep you dry in any season.

When buying a waterproof jacket, look out for breathable, stretchy, Gore-Tex fabrics in a slim-fit cut. They will protect you from rain and icy winds, regulate your temperature to keep you warm and give you the complete range of movement you need for a powerful, accurate swing.

There’s such a wide range available from the likes of Callaway, Footjoy and Galvin Green that you can find a colour, cut and design to suit your personal style. With varied design features such as half or full zips, adjustable cuffs and hems and zipped pockets, you and your belongings are guaranteed to stay dry for the full 18.

Waterproof Trousers

Just like waterproof jackets, waterproof golf trousers are light enough to carry with you at any time of year and offer the same levels of breathable comfort.

However, when shopping for waterproof trousers it’s essential to select the right leg length to prevent water from getting into your footwear and get a comfortable fit that won’t restrict your movements.

You can find a variety of leg lengths from brands like Nike, Oscar Jacobson and the Sunderland golf range, as well as waterproof zip-flies and pocket flaps, and elasticated or cord-adjusted waistbands and hems for personalised comfort and fit.

Choose classic grey, black or navy blue tones or make a statement on the course in eye-catching reds or purples.

Footwear

With your waterproof outerwear taken care of, all that remains to protect you from the elements and play the perfect, dry and comfortable round this winter is some waterproof footwear.

The latest golf shoes, boots and trainers from the leading golf brands all offer outstanding protection from the elements and come with the structured design you need for traction and stable play in any conditions.

Take your pick from fixed spike, removable cleat and moulded lug soles and compare what each brand has to offer; Puma Titans include memory foam soles for customised foot moulding while FootjoyDryJoys come with a weighed out sole for increased stability, so shop around to find golf shoes that are comfortable and support your play.

To get the best performance from your footwear, remember to pair them with the appropriate socks. Look for those which have moisture wicking and antibacterial properties because as much as it’s important to stop water getting into your shoes, it’s just as important to let natural moisture out.

All of the waterproof golf clothing you need is available in an extensive range of colours, fits and styles from Function18, so check out their range, order yours online and get your game on!
