Rather than be stuffed away in your golf bag and saved for a rainy day, modern waterproof jackets should be savoured, looked after and used as a versatile top for both on and off the course.
And the latest in the Ping Collection’s autumn/winter range – the Kingston jacket - is the perfect example. And as you’d expect carries a price tag to match.
However, for a recommended cost of £90 you get Ping’s latest Function 3 technology, softshell lightweight material and a choice of three colours - citrus/steel grey, black/cayenne, turquoise/black and black/steel grey The full-zip jacket comes in sizes from small to XXL.
Other clothing is the Function3 range include the Tour F3D rain suit, Cuba fleece, Phoenix Teflon-coated sweater and several performance polo shirts.
