You get practice swings, but only one shot with the sun on the green

Sunny skies and golf rounds go hand in hand. Before you start swinging, it’s important to protect yourself from skin-damaging UV rays. Sunscreen is the obvious preventative measure, but did you know your wardrobe can help keep you protected? When choosing your next golf outfit, keep in mind these essential features.

Don’t let your clothes weigh you down. Lightweight options are easy to find at Golf Town. The PGA TOUR - Men's 1/4 Zip Sun Protection Pullover will allow your skin to breathe while protecting you from the sun's radiation. PGA Tour Apparel combines practicality and style with its moisture-wicking design. Which brings us to our next feature:

Stay dry through every swing with moisture-wicking fabric. Puma Women's YouV Solid 1/4 Zip Long Sleeve Top is made from lightweight, 4-way stretch fabric to help wick away annoying sweat. Puma’s added YOU-V feature is a sun-protecting must-have. All Puma YOU-V products feature UPF 50+ protection against the sun's harmful rays.

Built-in UV protection is a game changer. Callaway Men's Printed Sun Protection 1/4 Zip Pullover provides UPF 50 sun protection to ensure it’s as functional as it is fashionable. A mock neck collar and long sleeves provide extra coverage from the sun, while the quarter-zip closure allows for custom styling and easy on-and-off functions.

No need to buy a whole new wardrobe; you can still wear short sleeves while protecting yourself from the sun. Unisex Nike UV 2.0 Golf Sleeve is a versatile and essential golf item. Nike UV incorporates a special treatment to deflect UV rays. Its Dri-Fit technology helps you stay dry and comfortable all year.

With a wide selection of golf apparel available, you can look great and stay cool, too. Your game may even improve now that you don’t have to worry about the sun.
