Golf shoes used to all be about formality, fold-down, frill-edged tongues to cover unsightly laces, and inch-long, ground piercing spikes designed to keep you well rooted to the turf below, but a change has come in this field and it has definitely been for the better!
Golf Punk’s Pocket Guide to Sweaters
Golf may have lost its way a little in the fashion stakes throughout the dreary 1990s, but thankfully in the past few years some of the more fashion-forward players on Tour have begun to buck the trend.
This rebellion of sorts has seen the likes of Ian Poulter, Camillo Villegas and Adam Scott embrace their inner Ballesteros and their inner Tom Watson and bring style back into the game.
Of course there have been times when the likes of Poulter have got it horribly wrong themselves, but recently he and many other Tour golfers have been getting it right more often than not.
A big part of this trend has been their embracing of sleek and stylish knitwear and pullovers to partner their slicker- than-your-average polos.
Brands like Lyle and Scott have always led the way in the knitwear department and they still offer a great line in more classical knitwear in addition to their more modern stylings including a shawl neck cardigan that would look great both on and off the course.
If you’re looking for something a little lighter and a little more sporty then Adidas, Nike and Puma all offer a wide range of lightweight, tracksuit-style options as well as stocking plenty of well fitted knitwear themselves.
