Dressing in layers allows golfers to easily adapt to the weather, by adding layers when its cold or removing them when it gets warmer.
Many golfers underestimate just how much heat is generated in a round of golf and frequently dress too warm. It’s also not unusual to play golf with not enough clothing when it gets bitter. Either way, it certainly makes golf less fun.
Thankfully, the remedy is simple. Wear the right clothing that provides warmth without bulk, offers wicking to move moisture away from the skin to keep us in the maximum comfort zone. Particularly in the autumn, we also want to wear something that will keep the wind out.
Putting some thought into your outfit before hitting the course is the way to go, especially when the weather is more demanding. What you wear could be the deciding factor in how well you play and how comfortable you are out on the course.
The Abacus collection offers a range of golf clothing ideally suited to all the conditions that can be experienced on the course. Take a look below at some of the highlights of the Abacus range below.
