The golf apparel business seems to be in a constant state of expansion, with more brands popping up seemingly every few months. Whatever brand you choose, keep a couple points in mind when it comes to selecting clothes – especially golf shirts – to keep you cool. “Moisture wicking” is a key phrase and fabric trait to look for. Such fibers, often synthetic, are treated to enhance capillary action, which moves sweat from your skin to the outer layer of the shirt, then letting it evaporate so the material doesn’t get sopping wet.
