Protect yourself from the sun's powerful UV rays with this collection of great sunscreens for golf

That’s why we’ve put this buyer’s guide together to give you our favourite sunscreen options for the modern golfer.

But if you’re asking yourself “which sunscreen should I use for golf?”, then you’ve come to the right place.
