Golf Clothing should not only be beautiful, it is more important that it is comfortable and functional. There are no specific rules on the course regarding golfers’ uniforms, although most private and country clubs have certain standards. Usually no tracksuits for men, denim jeans, collarless shirts, short shorts and sleeveless shirts.
Some clubs insist that men wear long socks with shorts. According to other rules, it is forbidden for ladies to be in the club building in shorts or even trousers. In different countries and clubs, the shape of golfers is different.
You need clothing that allows the various parts of the body to move completely freely for the main punches. There is no shortage of choice when it comes to shirts, sweaters, trousers, shorts, slacks or skirts.
Remember that you need to spend several hours in the field, during which time significant changes in weather conditions can occur. If the weather seems erratic, make sure you have enough extra clothing to keep you warm, as frozen limbs and joints are the biggest enemy when playing golf, put a raincoat in your bag in case of rain.
When choosing a raincoat, remember that you are unlikely to find clothing that is completely waterproof. The cheapest raincoat is usually lightweight nylon, which, while not very pretty, has the advantage of being compact and easy to fit in a bag.
No matter which rain protection you choose, pick up wide leg trousers, preferably with zippers at the bottom so that they do not flutter in the wind and at the same time slide easily over golf shoes. The jacket should be loose enough with few seams. It is also important to remember to make as little noise as possible when moving on impact.
Very important as well headdressespecially in wind or rain. Find something to keep your hair out of your eyes, keep rain out of your glasses, and keep your hat on well when the wind blows. The selection of hats is huge.
Golfers don’t want to look spectacular in the rain. You can see headdresses from tassel hats to caps with headsets. Fashion should come second after functionality! Also, remember that in good weather you need to hide your eyes from the sun with a visor cap or a sun visor.
A durable pair of shoes plays an important role in a secure grip and good foot function. The most expensive shoes have an upper made of genuine leather, as well as a leather sole with spikes. However, these shoes can be very stiff, and if the sole does not flex freely, you can get blisters on your feet.
For most players the ideal combination is a breathable leather upper with a rubber sole that has either spikes or bumps. The outsole should be flexible enough to provide good footwork. A stiff sole will not only be uncomfortable, it will create problems when swinging.
Choose shoes with sturdy toes. It also contributes to good leg work as the right foot extends forward to the toes. Shoes that are too flexible will not provide adequate support. Also, remember that heel height can vary slightly, which affects balance and footwork. Heels that are too high can shift the weight of your left foot forward towards the ball when they make contact with the ball, instead of allowing you to return to the heel.
Recently, the popularity of lightweight tennis shoes has grown more and more, as they wear less feet in these shoes during the time spent on the field.
Most players wear a glove on their left handwhich helps to maintain a consistent grip. High-priced genuine leather is by far the nicest, but it doesn’t last as long as some good synthetic materials. The extra padding at the base of the hand will help prevent quick wear on the glove. Such a glove will fit more tightly on the hand than a regular one.
Wear the glove carefully, pulling it gently over all fingers, rather than simply pulling away from your wrist. In winter, it is usually easier to wear a pair of thick mittens over a golf glove than to play with a pair of gloves. There are special trolley mittens that cover both the trolley handle and the arms.
