Masters week should give you all the motivation you need to up your golf game – and that shouldn’t just be limited to improving your handicap. Now more than ever, your style options for the fairway aren’t just limited to the patterned trousers and Argyll sweaters of your dad’s generation. This isn’t only thanks to activewear innovators like Castore and Kjus Golf working on sleeker, more stylish collections, but also down to more traditional tailoring labels such as Oscar Jacobson and Loro Piano releasing golf lines which combine their eye for cuts and technical fabrics. Even if you’ll never make it to Augusta, your next eighteen holes have never looked so good.
TAG Heuer Connected Modular 45 ‘Golf Edition’
Make like a golf pro, and get the best feedback on your latest round with TAG Heuer’s latest contribution to the smart watch world. The TAG Heuer Connected Modular 45 ‘Golf Edition’ is linked to the new TAG Heuer Golf app, which gives access to 3D renderings of more than 39,000 courses, records scores, and provides comprehensive performance analysis as you play, including putting average, longest drive, score distribution and more. Outside the golf course, it can also do anything that the other TAG Heuer Connected watches can do, including send messages, receive notifications, and play music.
Peter Millar jacket
British golf courses can’t promise the blue skies of Augusta, but with the right equipment you shouldn’t let that affect your round. This jacket from elegant golfing outfitter Peter Millar is constructed from clever stretch fabric with a breathable membrane, meaning it’s windproof, water-resistant and warm. The slim-cut design with two-way zip also means there’s no uncomfortable bulk or resistance when you reach for the driver, too.
Castore Keane polo shirt
Activewear start-up Castore has just launched its first golf collection. Just like the rest of its range, it has invested in creating thoroughly innovative designs. This Keane polo, for example, is constructed for maximum swing-friendly flexibility. It’s got a UPF (Ultraviolet Protection Factor) rating of 50+, and is cut from a single piece of cloth, in order to reduce chafing. What’s more, it’s crafted from super lightweight fabric that’s 50 per cent thinner than other fabrics with a similar weight, and is specially treated to eliminate odours while you wear it.
Under Armour Spieth 3 GTX E golf shoes
Under Armour has teamed up with Masters competitor Jordan Spieth to make these innovative golf shoes, just in time for the Masters. With a breathable microfibre upper and lightweight waterproof membrane to keep you cool and dry, the shoes are engineered to biomechanically correct foot support, and feature a outsole with a strategically placed carbon fiber insert to provide lateral stability for your swing.
Oscar Jacobson golf trousers
Swedish tailoring house Oscar Jacobson knows all about cutting a great pair of trousers – so it’s no surprise its golfing range is just as good-looking as its main collection. With a sharp central pleat (and we love pleated trousers) this pair comes with a hidden stretch waistband for added movement as you play.
Loro Piana golf sweater
Loro Piana helps you to bring flawless Italian style to the course – even if the closest you’ll get to Italy is a nice Campari Spritz after the 18th hole. Taking inspiration from the uniforms it designed for the 2018 Ryder Cup European team, this slim fitting half-zip sweater is knitted from a performance-ready cotton-blend that the brand’s fabric experts developed in their own lab.
Kjus golf gilet
Kjus is at the forefront of technical innovation. Its focus for its golf gear is stretch, freedom of movement and range of motion, all things this gilet has built in as standard. It features 3D-stretch technology that allows both the outer fabric to stretch and the lining, as well as stretch side panels. The insulating fabric is also treated to make it water-repellant, meaning if you happen to find yourself in a very British rain shower it won’t matter (too much).
Adidas golf cap
Whether you’re in Augusta or Aberdeen, perfecting the perfect swing means you need to keep the sun out of your eyes. This cap from Adidas is made from moisture-wicking stretch-jersey, with embroidered eyelets for airflow, and UPF 50+ protection to keep off the sun.
