The Do’s and Don’ts of Golf Apparel


The Do’s and Don’ts of Golf Apparel is a blog about golf apparel in general including the benefits of buying quality golf clothing. The blog is for golfers and company employees, who will appreciate the information I’ll be providing on golf apparel.

The Do’s and Don’ts of Golf Apparel focuses on ways to improve your game. I will be writing about golf apparel, how to choose the right golf shoes, how to choose the right clubs and much more.

I will be reviewing golf apparel companies and giving my opinion on which ones are good and which ones are not. I will also give my opinion on which golf retailers are good and which ones are not.

There will be a lot of reviews of different merchandise in the coming months. This blog is solely dedicated to helping you find quality products that you’ll love while playing your favorite sport passions.

The Do’s and Don’ts of Golf Apparel is a blog about golf apparel in general. In this post I will be covering what happens when you buy too much golf apparel and how to talk to employees at golf shops about the importance of buying quality clothing for the avid golfer.

This post is not about finding an affordable golf shirt that fits, nor is it about finding a bargain in the golf equipment department. It is instead about the importance of buying quality clothing for the avid golfer, especially if they are not playing as often as they used to.

The term “avid golfer” can mean many things: a recreational golfer, a weekend warrior, someone who plays once or twice a year, or someone who plays every day. So what are you buying when you buy quality golf apparel? If you are shopping for a casual golfer or someone who plays once or twice a year then the answer is probably “nothing.” If you are shopping for someone who plays every day then the answer is probably “a lot.”

If you are shopping for an avid golfer (someone who plays every day) then don’t assume that just because it’s cheap it must be good. The same thing goes if you see something in a clearance bin

Golf apparel has changed tremendously in recent years. When I started playing golf many years ago, I recall that every golf shirt was cotton and white. Today, golf shirts are made of polyester and come in a rainbow of colors and patterns.

I have always had difficulty with golf shirts. They tend to shrink in the wash, lose their shape after a few washes, and become more like a vest than a shirt. After researching the matter sufficiently to find the best golf shirts on the market, I discovered that they are called “Eagle” shirts because they are made by “Eagle Brand.” The Eagle Brand Golf Apparel Blog was started by Tim Gentry to discuss the various brands of golf clothing available today and their benefits and drawbacks.

In this post we will look at the do’s and don’ts of golf apparel.

I am not a golfer. I’m a writer. But I have always been fascinated by golf. I’d watch TV golf tournaments when I was little. Even though I couldn’t play the game, I loved the drama of it: that slow, steady rise and fall of the ball in flight, the suspense as you wait for the pro to give your putt a tap or roll it over; the way you can feel everything with your hands, from the softness of the green to the firmness of your grip to the solidity of your club-head in your hands; and most of all, how clear and compelling it is that you are carrying out some serious business on this course.

My interest in golf apparel got started when I realized that no one had written about what kinds of things we should be buying for this game we all love so much. And because clothing is always changing, there was no such thing as a definitive answer: what worked yesterday won’t work tomorrow (or vice versa). It is an industry that has been growing at an astonishing rate–yesterday’s golf clothes are today’s t-shirts and jeans–which also means it can move quickly in directions you don’t expect.

Golf clothing is a luxury product. If you want to buy something for its utility and can find it at a better price at Wal-Mart, you should. But if you’re looking for a great-looking jacket or pants, you probably have to pay more. And if you have an important game in mind, there’s no fun in picking out the boring clothes that cost $20.

There are a lot of people who would like to spend more money on golf clothes than they do. That may seem silly, but those people don’t necessarily feel silly when they see other people buying $500 shoes and $350 golf bags. They don’t mean their opinion of golf fashion is lower just because their own choices are less expensive; they’re just willing to spend more on clothes than other people do.

So I’d like to make a suggestion: think about the sorts of things other people wear and why they wear them, and use that as your guide for buying things.

There are sports which everyone has heard of and know how they are played. Baseball, bowling, crew, golf, hockey, soccer, tennis and basketball. But then there are the sports that most people have never heard of and don’t know how to play. Basketball is one of them but I bet golf is the biggest.

This is a shame because when you play golf you are not playing on a level field; there are no baselines or goalposts. It’s like playing shuffleboard with a full set of clubs in one hand and an umbrella in the other. Not only do you have to be clever about what club to use at what time but also you must think fast because every shot could be your last for all you know.

So it’s about as far removed from “playing the game” as it gets and yet it is probably the most important game for a golfer to play because you need to learn to play it well and that is what makes good players great golfers.

Do not wear golf clothing on the course. It may be hot, you may want to camouflage yourself, or you may want to look good. Whatever the reason, it will not make you a better golfer.

Still, I’ve begun to notice that even professional golfers with an obvious handicap tend to wear golf shirts and pants when they’re out on the course. And I think I know why: They like to feel like professionals when they’re playing golf.

A lot of people who play golf have that same thought.

The best way to look like a pro is probably not by wearing a pro’s uniform but by wearing something that feels more like a uniform than any pro’s uniform would. That is, buy clothes that you wouldn’t wear off the course and then put them on when you’re playing golf.
