The distinctive shape signifies the ideals behind the range, crowned with a peak of devotion and excellence. The collection boasts bold garments and designs suitable for all conditions to help deliver the ultimate GameDay experience.

“The margins are incredibly fine when the pressure is on out on the course and peak performance is achieved when mind and body work in perfect harmony,” said CEO Nicholai Stein. “With that in mind, our designers created a range of shirts that will allow every serious golfer to walk on to the course with complete trust in what they are wearing. The new range
offers industry-leading performance and stylish design, with environmental concerns firmly at the forefront of our creative process,” he added.

FootJoy Pro SL shoes

Spikeless with maximum grip. FootJoy can do it. The FootJoy Pro SL shoes once revolutionised the spikeless golf shoe segment. In 2022, the 4th generation tees off and presents its stable and grippy Infinity sole with further improvements.

FootJoy Pro SL shoes – what’s inside

The innovative, particularly light and flexible StratoFoam midsole, which was originally developed for the FJ Stratos and has since proven itself in the HyperFlex models, is now integreated in the entire Pro|SL series.

This patented midsole material is particularly lightweight, provides optimum support and cushioning in all golf conditions, and not only absorbs shock but also returns energy to help golfers perform to the letter time and time again.

Who is this product suitable for?

Featuring a new, sleek Pittards chromoskin leather upper, the Pro|SL Carbon is FJ’s most technologically advanced spikeless performance golf shoe. The outstanding properties of the StratoFoam midsole are complemented in this model by special carbon inserts in the outsole, which combine greater lateral stability in the heel area with outstanding flexibility in the forefoot area.

The Pro|SL Carbon uses the flexibility of the carbon inserts to elastically regain its natural position. This leads to a higher energy return when walking and counteracts foot fatigue – leaving more energy for the game.

“The use of our successful StratoFoam technology together with the improvements to our carbon insert take the shoe to a new level of performance, we are very excited about this,” said Guy Smith, Product Manager FootJoy Footwear.

Features and benefits at a glance

  • ChromoSkin™ leather from Pittards®.
  • 3D foam collar for a perfect upper fit
  • StratoFoam midsole for fatigue-free walking comfort
  • Infinity outsole for tourer-proven grip and premium stability during the swing
  • Carbon inserts in the outsole for maximum stability and comfort (Pro|SL Carbon)

Galvin Green launches second installment of “Gameday” collection

Leading golf apparel brand Galvin Green has built on its award-winning ‘GameDay’ Part One range with the introduction of a 2021 Part Two collection inspired by the uncompromising precision of computer-generated technologies, matched with long-lasting garments that offer exceptional performance in all weather conditions.

Designed for golfers by golfers, the collection includes a host of new products for men, women and juniors – including an array of INSULA™ sweaters made 100% from recycled plastic bottles that recently won a prestigious global Sports Technology Award for Sustainability.

Designs inspired by uncompromising precision and featuring new Golf Green colour tone

Adopting a scientific approach to the latest styling, Galvin Green designers magnified pixels in complex technical patterns to produce complete creations that merge precise elements into pure performance. They also took the opportunity to create a new Golf Green colour tone that features throughout the collection, highlighting the brand’s exclusive focus on golf and its commitment to a ‘Greener’ future.

“It’s in our DNA to do things by design and at pixel level there is a carefully calculated choice built into every detail of our clothing,” said Designer Batur Raza Muhammad. “Once zoomed out, we’ve produced a series of stunning garments that will give golfers the feel-good factor along with pure performance in all playing conditions. We believe these bright and bold designs will prove particularly popular with our ever-growing fan base of younger golfers.

“With the creation of the Golf Green tone, we wanted to establish an iconic colour to reflect our strong environmental credentials and hopefully, become as synonymous with the game of golf as Racing Green is with British motor racing,” he added.

Galvin Green compromises with the world’s needs and wears Eco-friendly

Combining the most advanced fabrics available from around the world with the Science of Excellence, each garment offers comfort and style both on and off the course. Around 70% of the collection is now produced using environmental Bluesign® approved fabric or certified by OEKO-TEX® 100 to cover thread and buttons as well as fabric. Labels and packaging also come in eco-friendly formats.

New to the wide range of men’s GORE-TEX waterproofs is the ABE jacket. Constructed from Bluesign® approved fabric, the jacket is 100% waterproof and windproof, while remaining extremely breathable. Available in three sleek colourways including Sharkskin, the jacket features a lightweight mesh lining and repositioned side seams for optimum comfort. In the popular GORE-TEX Paclite™ style, the lightweight APOLLO full-zip jacket now comes in Golf Green among seven colour choices.

Galvin Green 2021 Part Two collection

In the men’s versatile INTERFACE-1™ range, the fully windproof hybrid LUCAS jacket with a water repellent finish now comes in five colour options, including Golf Green.

An addition to the INSULA™ sweater eco-generation range, the DAMIAN offers additional padding on the shoulders and back for extra warmth made from 100% recyclable polyester from Thermore®. The sweater is extremely breathable, while maintaining a warming effect #3 – the highest level of warmth in the category. It comes in both Navy and Black options.

Headlining the vibrant VENTIL8™PLUS shirt range, the MAC, MADDOX and MARSHALL styles showcase the inspiration behind the range, with innovative pixel designs in bright and bold colours. The shirts provide UV 20+ protection and come in a Quickdry stretch fabric for improved comfort. Other new styles are the MARCO and MORTON.

A new ETHAN vest with a pixel print has been added to the SKINTIGHT™ thermal base layer range.

Galvin Green seeks the quality versus comfort balance.

New to the women’s GORE-TEX range, the ANYA lined jacket is made from Bluesign® approved fabric. The extremely lightweight and windproof jacket is treated with environmentally friendly PFC (EC) Free water repellency and 100% waterproof. It features two front pockets, one inside chest pocket, plus a two-way zipper and adjustable cuffs for greater comfort. Available in Grey and Navy colour options.

The attractive DOLLY sweater joins the INSULA™ range, offering style and comfort in equal measure, thanks to the super-soft and stretchy quick dry fabric that allows complete freedom of movement, while remaining both warm and breathable.
Additions to the VENTIL8™PLUS shirt range include the stylish MAIA that offers golfers UV 20+ protection and comes in Blue Bell/White and Navy/White. The new PETRA shorts round out the collection, providing female golfers with an alternative to the popular skirt, skort and trouser ranges.

Head Covers: Enough with the teddy bears, try these ones instead

I know I’ll probably be alienating not-so-small part of the golf community with this take. But it’s about time that we give a voice to those who can’t stand seeing golf bags lined up in front of the clubhouse you see an array of cute little creatures covering up the drivers, fairway woods and putters and you start to wonder.

Lions and tigers and bears, oh my!

Guys that drive up the club in a Maserati, that claim to hit their driver 270 yards and have three grown up kids pulling plush toys over their toughest clubs? Why not, I guess. It’s a free world after all.

But there are plenty of good alternatives out there, whether you’re looking for simplicity, elegance, bright colours, luxury or anything in between.

We’ve checked some of the brands that focus on head covers and found some real beauties.

Cayce – HIT BOMBS! Driver & Fairway Woods Cover

There’s nothing more satisfying than hitting a bomb straight off the tee. And you won’t manage it if you’re mind is distracted. So, to keep yourself in the right frame of mind and focus on what to do next when you’re pulling out the big gun, Cayce has this little helper to remind you what it’s all about.

I’m a big fan of the Cayce head covers, especially those made of DURA+, making them fully water resistant. Also available as fairway wood cover. $ 64.99 or $ 59.99 (for the FW) on caycegolf.com

(Photo: caycegolf.com)

Bobby Golf – Respect Blade Head Cover

Stylistically Bobby Golf isn’t always the most confident, but this one showing Hideki Matsuyama’s caddie, Shota Hayafuji, respectfully removing his hat and taking a bow after returning the pin at the 2021 Masters, is right on point. What Cayce’s Hit Bombs head cover might be for your driver, the Respect cover is for your putter. Get yourself in a winner’s state of mind. Available for $ 85 at bobbygolf.com

Reinland Golf – Shibori Head Cover

Not a misspelling of the German river region, Rhineland, Reinland Golf is the head cover brand of the Reinlands, a golf-crazed family whose son, Maxton Reinland, was seeking quality head covers for his golf label Muni Kids. His mother Marti spent hours and hours developing and sewing them and soon, Reinland Golf Company was born.

This one is a nice canvas/ fleece two-colour tie-dye version for all the hippies at heart.

Available as driver, wood and hybrid versions for $44.95 or $49.95 on reinlandgolfco.com

Headgear – Electrified Red Styling Edition Covers

Aside from their usual elegant collection, they offer the option for customisation. They come with a no-pill blizzard fleece lining and will be sure to keep your clubs lint-free. This Electrified Red Styling Edition is really good if you’re looking for something to match your brand-new red Ferrari. Get it for $ 50 (woods) to $ 60 (driver) on headgeargolf.com

Desired Line Co. – Barber Pole Cover

Take some fresh colour, add a touch of graphic minimalism and a heavyweight polyester canvas with UV, and you’ll get this weather-proof Nano fabric protection head cover that is 100% made in Australia.

It’s got a sort of vintage touch, as it brings to mind the old-fashioned barbers poles.

Wood/ hybrid $ 54.95, driver $59.95 at desiredline.co

Golf Team Clothing – Arnold Driver & Fairway Wood Head Covers

Now it’s time for one from Europe. Golf Team Clothing specialise in personalised/ branded clothing for your team, friends, club, tournament or golf academy.

Truth be told, I’m just one click away from ordering one for my own hybrid. You can also choose from various colours for the inside fleece lining.

Seamus – Pride Rainbow Head Cover

With golf still being stuck with one foot in ancient times, it’s good to see some brands moving forward, with both feet in the 21st century.

“As a tribute to our friends and customers from all different backgrounds, ethnicities and genders, we are proud to introduce our peace and pride golf head cover”, say Seamus on their page.

Why not show off your LGBT+ pride on the course?

It’s not the cheapest option out there. It’s sewn together from six colourful Cardura pieces, red inner lining and an embroidered peace sign on top. All things considered, it’s still a reasonable price for the craftsmanship you get. If you fancy, you can also add a personalised leather label for an additional $10. Fairway for $85, driver for $95 on seamusgolf.com

Rawhide – Splattered Neon! Covers

Let’s keep it colourful with this one. Ok, it’s not an original Jackson Pollock but still one for the Pop Art lovers.

Rawhide hand cut, embroider and sew all their high quality leather products at their Vancouver facility and also give you the chance to create a custom design. T

his splatter design isn’t printed but splattered manually, so each cover is a one of a kind product.

Hybrid, fairway, driver for $110, $120 and $130 via rawhidegolf.com

Stymie – Fabric no. 22

This piece by Stymie is made put of finest imported wool in an elegant navy and Carolina blue hound’s-tooth pattern with a fleece lining on the inside. Add some style to your bag!

Putter and hybrid covers cost $50, woods cost $55 and driver covers cost $65 at stymiegolfsupply.com

Fillibegs – Tweed Yellow

Now one from my home country, Germany. Fillibegs makes head covers made from tartan and tweed fabrics that are purchased at traditional woollen mills in Scotland and England.

All covers for drivers, woods, putters are manufactured in Germany and come in a very quintessentially British style.


These patterns are available for all clubs, even irons, ranging from €44 to €74 on fillibegs.de

Big Dog Golf – OG White & Tan

Big Dog Golf make genuine leather (as well as some woollen) head covers which are beautifully constructed and handcrafted by a family of third generation leather-smiths from Melbourne, Australia.

All very clean, minimalistic, mostly unicolor or duotone with quiet embroideries and a branded leather patch, these covers are just what they’re supposed to be: quality covers to protect your clubs.

And that’s what they do- with style. Hybrid/ wood $ 85, driver $ 95 at bigdoggolfco.com

Cody Golf Co. – Granite Fairway Cover

Cody Golf, a brand from Utah, started by the two friends, Cole and Brody (combined Cody), make some of the most timeless and classic head covers around.

Simple, functional, effective in a design language that can be best described as understatement. There are no gimmicks with these ones, just elegant covers in the classic sock and barrel design that will be sure to stand the test of time. They offer a relatively limited range of just five different colours.

Fairway covers cost $44.99 and driver covers cost $ 59.99 on codygolf.com

Western Gales – Express Send

Western Gales is a division of State Apparel which makes head covers from up-cycled sails, handmade in San Francisco.

I’m a big fan of the idea of using old sails for head covers. It’s not just a good way to save materials, it’s also worth pointing out that sails tend to be very durable and weather proof.

On top of that, each piece is absolutely unique, a one of a kind cut out of a larger piece.

The best piece in their collection probably is this FedEx one. I like to thnk of it as using the FedEx cover to help “send” your ball to its destination.

From $60 (hybrid) to $68 (driver) at stateapparel.com

Flush – Nose Candy Putter Cover

Remember that Uma Thurman scene in Pulp Fiction where she takes a bump of cocaine in the ladies rest rooms before getting on the dance floor with John Travolta?

Whether you’ve seen it or not, you’ll definitely find the right “line” with this putter cover from Flush.

Available for blade and mallet putters for $65 via rflushgolfco.com

Golden Soul Golf – The Iceberg Putter Cover

Last but not least we it’s another simple and elegant cover. Golden Soul’s Iceberg putter cover is available as mallet and blade putter cover. With its maritime and/or festival look, I can’t help but imagine a putting green aboard a yacht somewhere in the Aegean Sea. That said, I bet it would work out well on any real course anywhere else too.

Golf is a lifestyle! Check out these pieces for the spring season

Finally spring! The next weeks will tell if authorities let us enjoy our beloved sport as we want it or if we need to face more ongoing restrictions. But wether or not we’re still looking for fresh styles to wear on and off the course, great clothes to keep your modern golfer identity up every day, cause we still think: golf is not a sport, it’s a lifestyle. So enjoy and all praise the small labels, the grass roots of our sport. They deserve it!

SOLO – Crew Neck

Run by a couple from New England SOLO Golf is bridging the gap between golf-wear and menswear with a fashionable but clean and timeless approach, just as this crew neck sweater proves. No gimmicks, just clean, warm and looking stylish on and off the course. Check out the rest of their small but profound range of clothes. SOLO is definetely worth to keep an eye on. $ 55 on sologolfco.com

Calcutta Golf Company – The Founders Hoodie

Brand new and fresh from the tailor hails this brand from the US of America. With just a small badge of products, basics as T-shirts, caps, beanies and this „Founders Hoodie“. And since we’ve seen not only Tyrrell but also DJ on the Tour in a hoodie, the modern golfer shouldn’t hesitate to „break the rules“. Just do it. Available for $ 61,99 at thecalcuttagolfco.com

Arayne Golf – Tees Headcover

An Australian accessoiries brand specialising in headcovers that differ from the ones you see normally on course. Clean with a love to detail and craftsmanship. All products are hand made locally crafted items from locally sourced materials. More to come soon. AUD 30 via araynegolf.com

Euforeia – Moondaze Golf Towel

Turning five this year Euforeia already has a broad catalogue of polos, hoodies, gloves, hats, shirts, Jackets and accessoiries and women’s line that’s really worth to be checked out. They might need a little help with their T-shirt graphics in my honest opinion, but the polos and a bunch of other things really look sharp. So does this fleece player’s towel with luxurious soft front and a textured backside. The color mix of this one is really striking me. Get it for $ 30 on euforeiagolf.com

Palos – Hello Friends Trucker Cap

Oh, wait a minute! Right, the Masters are just around the corner! In a few days there’s even a small number of patrons allowed. Even though we deeply wish that you’re one of them chances aren’t really that high, sorry. But you’ll sure grab some beers in front of your telly while rocking this Masters trucker cap in style. Cause you definetely need something to whip off your head when your favorite pro misses his putt. Or makes it. Get it for $ 25 at palos.store

McEwan Golf – Patrons Only Tour Visor

Bubba is wearing them, Bernhard did, still does and even Jon Rahm and JT were spotted in them: visors. Looks like they’re having a big come back. No big logo on this one, just the remarkable patrons only chair of Augusta embroideried in classic Imperial Hats quality by McEwan Golf. For $ 28 from mcewangolf.com

Slackertide – Mastacos T-Shirt

If you check Slackertide’s about page you might be wondering as it’s all about golfing and fishing. Weird you might think, but why not? Why not start a label with funny designs about two things you just like? Richard Blanco, a graphic designer from Florida who likes to fish and golf, did. There’s a good bunch of funny shirt designs worth to be checked out – like this Masters taco shirt for $ 30 on slackertide.com

Manors – Sunday Pin Positions T-Shirt

When it comes to golf themed T-shirt we really like the ones that don’t scream out loud: „HEY, I’M A GOLFER!“. The ones that are doing a subtle job midly begging for a affirmative nod when another golfer recognizes the design. Such as this great one, The Sunday Pin Positions, from Manors. The three brits behing Manors started in 2019 being backed up by American and British investors and accomplished to fuse the style and sophistication of the 50s and 60s with the loose and relaxed twist of the 21st century. Clothes for on and off the course. T available for £ 35 via manorsgolf.com

Burning Cart Society – Support Your Local Caddies T-Shirt

Cut from a similar wood are the guys from Burning Cart Society, who not only love the game of golf, but also love to walk, hence the name. They believe walking a course (unless you can’t because of a physical handicap) is essential for experiencing the game, the layout of the course. This tongue in cheek design that takes the logo of the 80s punk rock band „Circle Jerks“ on to a golf journey perfectly depicts this. Or as they state as their ethos: More public golf and less gates. Self expression over dress codes. Break down the walls. $ 25 via burningcartsociety.com

Asher – Quiet Please T-Shirt

And another brilliant and subtle design only golfers will understand. Inspired by the sign that keeps the peace and puts us on the edge of our seat. And once the sign is down anything goes. Fabulous. Also a great colour. Want it? Get it! $ 30 at ashergolf.com
