FootJoy Spring 2018 Golf Apparel
Continuing to Lead the Way in Quality Golf Apparel
By David Theoret
For my money, the FootJoy apparel brand oozes class and professionalism; no wonder it's the apparel of choice for many PGA and LPGA Tour professionals. And, over the last few years, they've really upped their game when it comes to ladies' apparel. For 2018, FootJoy has introduced several new polos for ladies, including the Striped Crew Neck, a truly comfortable piece of ladies' golf apparel. Several performance features combine to keep you cool, dry and smelling fresh. The ProDry Fabric is extremely comfortable and moves with you throughout your golf swing. The easy to care for fabric is machine washable with minimal shrinkage or wrinkling and built-in UV sun protection keeps you protected from the sun's harmful rays. The Striped Crew Neck shirt is available in sizes XS - XL and in three color combinations: Pink/White, Periwinkle/White or Heather Gray/White. Retail price is $72.
Two other must have FootJoy golf polos for women are the Performance Striped Knit Collar Women's Golf Shirt and the Sleeveless Space Dye shirt. Both garments have a few features in common:
- FootJoy's ProDry fabric which offers extreme comfort and stretch throughout the golf swing.
- Moisture wicking technology, which moves moisture away from the body, keeping you dry.
- An anti-microbial finish which keeps odors at bay and you smelling fresh.
- An easy to care for fabric which is machine washable with minimal wrinkling or shrinkage.
The solid colored hems on the sleeves and collar of the ladies' Performance Striped Knit Collar polo provide a nice contrast, as does the contrasting colored back panel on the Sleeveless Space Dye top. Both pieces are available in sizes XS - XL. The Performance Striped Knit Collar polo comes in several colors including Pink, Light Purple, Spearmint, Navy, and Periwinkle and retails for $72. The Sleeveless Space Dyed top comes in Periwinkle, Charcoal and Pink and retails for $68. Either top will have you feeling and looking your best.
FootJoy's Performance Knit Skort offers women contemporary styling in an easy to care for fabric. The ProDry fabric is extraordinarily comfortable and moves with you throughout your golf swing. The anti-microbial finish keeps you smelling fresh even on humid days and built-in mesh shorties add extra confidence. The double stitched seams give the Performance Knit Skort added durability and three pockets keep your valuables and scorecard safe and secure. The Performance Knit Skort is available in sizes XS - XL and in 7 vibrant colors. Retail price is $85.
Ladies, you can still sport that new skort on cold days; just add a pair of FootJoy's Capri Leggings. They're made from an easy to care for fabric, which is machine washable, with minimal wrinkling and shrinkage. The four-way stretch waistband moves with you, providing additional comfort and a mid-rise fit, while the ProDry fabric wicks moisture away from the body. The anti-microbial finish helps keep you smelling you best, even when your game may not! There's even a hidden pocket in the rear waistband to help keep small valuables safe and secure. FootJoy's Capri Leggings are available in sizes XS - XL and in either Black or Charcoal Space Dye, which goes with just about anything. Retail price is $75.
FootJoy has also introduced a Knit Dress with their spring collection. The Knit Dress is fashioned from the company's breathable ProDry fabric, which has superior moisture wicking and UV sun protection. The extra stretch in the fabric moves with you every step of the way. The anti-microbial technology keeps you fresh and the easy to car for fabric makes taking care of it a breeze. FootJoy's Knit Dress is available in sizes XS - XL and in either Periwinkle/White or Charcoal/White. Retail price is $115.
No one does mid-layer apparel like FootJoy and their Half-Zip Stripe Engineered Sleeves for women is no exception. This versatile piece of women's golf attire comes in an easy to care for fabric with an anti-microbial finish to keep you smelling fresh and the breathable ProDry fabric keeps you dry by wicking sweat away from your body. The UV finish keeps you protected from the sun. Contrasting colored collar and sleeves add a nice look and the iconic FootJoy logo on the back of the neck identifies the brand. Two zippered pockets provide a warming spot for your hands. The Half-Zip Stripe Engineered Sleeves is available in sizes XS - XL and in Charcoal, Periwinkle, or White. Retail price is $115.
FootJoy knows that men care less about the weather than women and tend to play in just about any condition. The Color Block Pique Polo with Self Collar features several weather fighting features including an anti-microbial finish which inhibits odor build-up and their exclusive ProDry fabric, which provides superior moisture control that quickly wicks away moisture, keeping you dry and comfortable throughout your round. Lock stitched hems provide reinforced construction with a tailored look and double stitched seams offer added durability. Finally, an extra-long shirt tail makes tucking it in and staying in a breeze. The Color Block Pique Polo with Self Collar is available in sizes S - XXL and in three color combinations: Heather Navy, Heather Grey or White. Retail price is $75.
FootJoy's Lisle Chest Stripe Knit Collar polo for men comes in some pretty brilliant colors. In addition to superior moisture wicking and anti-microbial capabilities, the ProDry fabric has some added stretch to it, so it will move with you throughout your swing. The double stitched seams offer added durability and the lock stitched hem reinforces the shirt's construction, giving it a tailored look. The extra-long shirt tail makes tucking it in a breeze, and the easy-care fabric requires minimal attention. The Lisle Chest Stripe Knit Collar polo is available in sizes S - XL and in several bright color combinations. Retail price is $75.
Another go to piece of apparel from FootJoy are their Flat Front Shorts which are available in 7 colors: Mint, Navy, Khaki, Black, White, Stone and Grey. These performance shorts offer a comfortable fit with superior movement, and extra breathability. They have a button closure and 10" inseam, giving them a classic golf look. The four-way stretch fabric moves with you through your entire golf swing with no pinching or binding and the flat front construction features two deep side pockets and large back pockets. With FootJoy's easy to care for fabric, there is no shrinkage and minimal wrinkling. The Flat Front Shorts are available in sizes 30 - 42 and retail for $75.
I got a pair of the Tonal Plaid Shorts in Melon (Orange) last year and liked the print, fit and feel so much that I got them in Pink - Pink Azalea actually - this year. Not only are they sewn from FootJoy's performance fabric, the colors and patterns will have other players doing a double take. A button closure and 10" inseam make these shorts comfortable for both walking the course or riding in a cart and the four-way stretch fabric moves with you and does not easily wrinkle or shrink. The Tonal Plaid Shorts feature a flat front design and two side pockets with generous depth. The back pockets are large enough to hold even the biggest scorecards. Up your game with the Tonal Plaid Shorts. They're available in sizes 30 -38 and in 4 colors: Pink Azalea, Melon, Navy and Grey. Retail price is $85.
When it comes to taking the wind out of play, FootJoy leads the way with its Short Sleeve Sport Windshirt. This garment provides outstanding comfort and protection on the golf course during windy playing conditions and the side pockets allow for hand comfort and warmth. The half-zip pullover design makes this windshirt easy to get on and off as the weather changes and the Raglan sleeves and honeycomb woven shell material offers 4-way stretch ability for unrestricted movement during the golf swing. It's also water repellent which helps keep you dry in a mist or light rain. FootJoy's Short Sleeve Sport Windshirt is available in sizes M - XXL and in seven well matched color combinations. Retail price is $78.
This is just a small sample of what FootJoy has available this spring for men and women. No matter what you choose, you'll be thrilled with the high quality and good looks of this apparel. For more information, visit the FootJoy website at www.FootJoy.com.

Growing up in Southwestern Ontario, Canada, it was naturally assumed he would play hockey. Beginning at the age of 3 and continuing into his late 30's, he did just that. However, after one too many pucks to the head, he realized that golf was a lot easier on the body (whoever said hockey players were slow) and took the game up.
After moving to Florida and accepting a position with TravelGolf Media (now part of GolfNow) his love for the game grew exponentially. Most Saturdays you will find him on a course somewhere in Florida or on the practice range reinforcing his bad habits. David plays to a 10 handicap - unless there is money involved in which case it goes considerably higher. He currently resides in Lakeland, FL with his wife Belinda and their two "kids", Madyson and Molly.
