A decade or so ago, khakis and muted color shirts were the standard fashion statement and you rarely saw a golf ball that wasn’t white as snow.
Oh, how things have changed…
Bright vivid colors have engulfed the game of golf with everything from shirts, shorts and pants to gloves, balls and golf bags available in head turning neon colors.
It wasn’t too long ago that you had two color choices for a golf glove, white or black. Now, there are gloves in a wide range of colors and designs. Let’s face it, if your swing looks more like a lumberjack than Rickie Fowler, a flashy golf glove won’t do anything to improve your game. Colorful golf gloves, however, make the game more fun for golfers who don’t take the game too serious. Women love them because they can match other golf attire and enhance their on course fashion statement.
Brilliant Golf Balls
High-visibility golf balls – which manufacturers claim can help you keep better track of your ball – are available in a variety of fluorescent colors. Among the most popular colors are yellow, green, orange, pink and red. Plus, for those who like to play in the snow or rain, these colorful spheres are a godsend especially when you land in snowdrift or puddle. Callaway’s Golf Chrome Soft Truvis, Srixon Soft Feel Golf Balls and Volvik Vivid Soft Golf Balls are some of the best high colored high visibility golf balls available
Polos With Personality
Colors and designs have run wild in the past few years with golf polos. It used to be these flashy shirts were only worn by trick shot artists or zany emcees at tournament awards dinners. Now, more than 20 companies offer shirts in head turning colors and outside-the-box designs with everything from kaleidoscope patterns to flamingos and lobsters.
Sizzling Shorts and Pants
Thanks to fashion forward golfers like John Daly and Rickie Fowler bright, in-your-face colored shorts and pants aren’t frowned upon anymore when you show up at the first tee. Golfers love to tee it up and the bright colors and designs are in some ways an expression of how happy they are to be strolling the fairways and sinking birdie putts. Daly and Fowler have both pushed the fashion envelope with fluorescent colors that just don’t seem that outlandish anymore.
Bold Golf Bags
If you can’t make a statement with your golf game, you might as well do it with your golf bag, right. Just about every major company from Ogio and Sun Mountain to Callaway, Titleist and Ping have golf bags brimming with color and personality.
