FootJoy has unveiled its new Autumn/Winter Performance Golf Apparel, designed to be easy to take on and off so players can adapt to changeable weather conditions with ease.

The garments are made with some of the most high performance fabrics and technologies, and are light and breathable.

The line- consisting of Outer, Mid and Base layers – have been tested by a range of golfers, including European Tour players Gregory Bourdy Brett Rumford, Andrew Dodt and Jason Scrivener.

“We’re really excited about our new Autumn/Winter range and it’s great to hear the feedback from our Tour players, which mirrors that excitement.” said Paul O’Hagan, FootJoy Marketing Executive.

“The new colours and stylings promise to appeal to a wider range of golfers than ever before, whilst several of our best-selling garments have remained in the line-up due to popular demand.

“We understand that it can be tough to find the motivation to get out on the course during the British winter, but our new range is designed to help golfers perform in those challenging conditions and look the part at the same time,” added O’Hagan.

OUTER LAYER

FootJoy’s Outer Layer consists of a wide range of waterproof jackets and trousers, wind shirts, thermal fleeces and softshell jackets and vests.

Created from Japanese fabrics, the DryJoys Select (£295 rain jacket; £200 rain trousers) is the flagship garment, offering 25,000mm waterproof protection (WP) and remaining lightweight to allow for other layers to be worn underneath.

Bringing new colour to the range are the DryJoys Tour XP waterproofs (£200 rain jacket; £185 rain shirt; £165 rain trousers), with the jacket boasting a StaDry Collar based on feedback from golfers at all levels of the game.

The collar has been strategically shaped and positioned to ensure it does not interfere with the golfer’s swing, whilst also preventing rain from entering the garment.

MID LAYER

The FJ Mid Layer category includes a host of popular Chill-Out Pullovers, lambswool sweaters and performance polo shirts that can be combined with Outer Layer garments or worn on their own.

In helping golfers perform on the course, the Autumn/Winter Performance Golf Apparel range includes a greater focus on the more technical Chill-Out pullovers over traditional sweaters, with new styles featuring in the Riverside and Lexington Collections.

Featuring splashes of the new colours, FootJoy’s high-performance polo shirts in Stretch Pique, Smooth Pique and Heather Lisle stylings are standout garments, whilst there are also more traditional Lisle Solid and Pique Solid shirts in primary colours for the more traditional golfer.

In total, there are 44 polo shirts for golfers to choose from in the latest Autumn/Winter Performance Golf Apparel range.

BASE LAYERS

Playing a crucial role in maintaining body temperature is FJ’s ProDry Performance Thermal Base Layer Mock, which is offered in three different colour options.

Autumn/Winter 2016 also see the continuation of FJ’s ProDry Performance Seamless Base Layer, which provides superb comfort and mobility, as well as body-mapping technology to guarantee breathability.

Available: August
