It’s now only a matter of weeks until we’re back on the course again – but how prepared are you? When golf returns in spring, it’s likely to be quite chilly out there – so now is the time to invest in a new jumper.
These days, there are plenty of options to choose from – lambswool, merino, quarter-zip, half-zip, mid-layer, fleece. The beauty of modern golf jumpers is that they’re constructed with technologically-advanced fabrics to ensure they’re stretchy, warm, water-repellent, and durable.
Put simply: a good golf jumper is an essential piece of golf clothing. So, which one will you choose? Let’s take a closer look at some of the best golf jumpers of 2021.
Nothing quite beats the feel of a soft fleece on a cold day, especially when the wind is whipping across the fairways. As well as a fleece lining that offers body heat retention, this performance sweater allows plenty of movement throughout the golf swing. Meanwhile, engineered woven panels on the chest and rear yoke provide abrasion protection.
This half-zip sweater features a stretch fleece with a quality styled Jacquard design material to the upper body. Ping’s SensorWarm technology helps keep the cold at bay, with the thermal layers trapping warm air and resisting wind chill. Breathable fabrics help provide warmth, too. They also stretch, so your swing won’t feel hindered.
This jumper is Rickie Fowler’s choice for when the temperature drops. The fabric is soft, lightweight, and has four-way stretch for ultimate comfort. Puma’s DryCELL technology provides a moisture-wicking finish to keep you feeling fresh, whilst the brushed back, fleece-lined design retains heat close to the body so that optimum temperature can be maintained.
A jumper that repels water is worth its weight in gold, especially with the changeable weather that comes with spring. Insulation panels and the front woven overlay provide warmth and wind protection. Designed with a contemporary style and worn by the likes of Jordan Spieth, it’s wonderfully light and breathable. It looks great off the course, too.
This fully thermal Insula garment is one of several really smart offerings in the premium brand’s range. With its Insula technology, it’s designed to provide unmatched comfort and warmth. It features a chest pocket, contrast shoulder, zipper, and front detail along with Galvin Green branding on the right chest for added style.
This premium garment provides plenty of warmth without compromising breathability. It’s shower resistant, too, so it’s going to get plenty of use throughout the year. There are some really smart colours in the range, but the blue/black gets the nod. This jumper will help inject a bit of colour into your winter wardrobe.
With a lightweight stretch polyester fabric, the garment offers added thermal insulation and helps regulate your body temperature. The colour block detail and a contrast Stuburt brand logo on the right shoulder add style to this modern garment. The price makes this jumper even more attractive, with most of Stuburt’s jumpers coming in at under £40.
Sometimes classic is best. This quarter-zip jumper has you well covered, offering protection against the wind and plenty of warmth for when the temperature drops. As well as grey, this smart jumper from Mizuno’s Autumn/Winter 2020 collection is also available in black and deep navy.
It might be referred to as a jacket, but the soft fleece material really makes it more of a jumper. Let’s call it a hybrid – either way, Callaway’s Opti-Therm technology creates an extra layer of thermal comfort whilst the Swing Tech fabric ensures golfers can swing without feeling restricted. It’s lightweight, trendy, and a favourite amongst many of Callaway’s Tour players.
Every golfer should own a premium quality knitted garment. This stylish golf jumper, which combines both tasteful modern design with premium quality, is inspired by Glenmuir’s rich legacy. Made from 100% premium lambswool, it’s designed to offer maximum comfort and freedom of movement. With plenty of colours to choose from, it wouldn’t be a bad idea to pick a couple.
Part of the ‘Tour’ range, this jumper features a fleece fabric for extra warmth and a moisture-wicking finish to aid comfort. It’s a popular choice amongst Tour professionals, which will be because of its sporty look. The stand collar, heather detail, and adidas brand logo on the left chest really add style.
This modern garment represents the perfect mid-layer, and because of its full stretch technical fabric, it won’t bulk up if you need to wear it under a waterproof jacket. It’s finished with a contrast Oscar Jacobson logo on the right shoulder for added style.
