The European Tour's finest tee up at the Home of Golf in the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship this week, ready to brave the elements on the three-course rota of St Andrews, Carnoustie and Kingsbarns.

Thankfully for the likes of Rory McIlroy, Jon Rahm, Justin Rose and a host of celebrities such as Justin Timberlake, Sir Ian Botham and Bill Murray competing in the Pro-Am format, the players will be armed with all the latest golf waterproof technology to help them focus on the job in hand. 

Forget about the days of giant, heavy, loud waterproof jackets impeding your golf swing on the way down. This is 2019 and waterproof golf technology has gone to a whole new level with the addition of GORE-TEX fabric. It's also become much lighter, carries a lot more style, and a waterproof golf jacket even keeps you warm on the course
