Clothing range from Wilson Staff

Wilson Staff is introducing a branded collection of affordable golf shirts, pullovers and a windproof tops in colourful, lightweight and breathable fabrics, many of which will be worn by Padraig Harrington's caddie Ronan Flood, himself a 2-handicap golfer.

The lightweight and breathable Classic Dry shirt (£34.99) in white, black or sand colours, features a moisture management system to allow heat and perspiration to escape and air to circulate, while the Authentic shirt (£29.99) features cool-feeling polyamid fabric in red, grey, black or sky blue. Soft, but hard wearing, the Retro shirt (£34.99) is available with contrasting cuffs, five buttons and a chest pocket in black, rose or navy.

In cooler weather the Thermal Tech half-zip pullover (£39.99) provides lightweight protection against the cold yet excellent breathability in black or navy and the Vintage V-neck (£59.99) comes in black or grey. The black Wind Tech top (£59.99) is water repellent with a zip neck.

Completing the collection is the soft women's Martina golf shirt (£29.99) is made from stretch cotton and elasthan for improved freedom of movement white or pink colour options.

“The is our first golf apparel range for some time, but the reaction to it from both trade customers and consumer tests has been really positive,” said Rick Hazelden, UK brand manager for Wilson Golf. “We’ve taken advantage of a range of new materials that can help golfers to concentrate on their games without having to worry about heavy, bulky clothing impeding their swings. What’s more, our garments won’t break the bank!”
