A respectable set of irons, a titanium driver modern enough to make your fellow foursome gasp upon impact, and a trusty putter (even one not designed by Robert Bettinardi) will set you back a fair chunk of change—hundreds, maybe thousands, of dollars.
That’s before we enter membership and greens fees, a glove, balls, tees, ball markers, divot repair tools, etc. into the discussion.
Then there’s the established dress code. You can always tell when someone’s either heading to a golf course or just wrapped up 18 holes of peaceful serenity. For most of America, their polo shirt is neatly tucked into a pair of khakis. Their feet rest inside spiked, two-tone saddle shoes.
Fortunately, this is one area where golf doesn’t have to make your wallet sob.
ClothingShopOnline has apparel from some of the game’s most beloved allies, including TaylorMade, Callaway, and Puma. Here are a few items that’ll keep you looking great on the course, even if your swing could use some tweaking.
First up is a Core Performance Cap by Adidas. This hat is perfect for those who equate crummy visors and super-pricey designer caps with a bad sun burn.
If Puma’s bright style is a bit too eccentric for you, Clothing Shop Online also has more traditional hats from Valucap and Yupoong. Valucap’s Econ Cap and Yupoong’s Snap Back Hat with Curved Visor are both outstanding for the golfer who wants to let his game do the talking.
Even more important, however, is the shirt. This is where price tags tend to unnecessarily explode. On the course, you need something with a collar, and a perfect solution is this Short Sleeve Sport Shirt by IZOD. It’s stylish and breathable, especially on those scorching July afternoons. For ladies, this Wicking Mesh Sport Shirt is perfect for the same reasons. (When it’s chilly, throw on this quarter zip lightweight pullover and feel as good as you look.)
Better clothes don’t result in a better game. But they certainly won’t make you worse, especially if the money you save here is re-invested in a Scotty Cameron putter and some individual lessons. It’s still October. Hit the links in style before golf takes a break until spring.
