FootJoy has launched its new Autumn/Winter Performance Golf Apparel range geared to help golfers of all levels perform to their very best.
FootJoy has re-iterated its commitment to the serious golfer with some of the most advanced performance fabrics and technologies in its latest line. The Autumn/Winter Performance Golf Apparel line focuses on multiple light and breathable pieces, which help boost performance and make it simple for golfers to add and remove garments in order to adapt to changeable weather conditions on the course.
The extensive range – incorporating Outer, Mid and Base Layers – has been put to the test in extreme playing conditions by European Tour regulars Gregory Bourdy, Brett Rumford, Andrew Dodt and Jason Scrivener during the Scottish Open at Castle Stuart, Inverness.
Based on fashion trends from around the world, the line also includes several eye-catching new colourways such as Steel Grey, Fresh Green, Orange and Nautical Blue. Two new colour collections – each boasting three polo shirts and two pullovers – light up the Mid Layer section. The Riverside Collection combines Black, Charcoal, White and Fresh Green, whilst the Lexington Collection is made up of classic Navy, White and Deep Red colourways.
FootJoy’s Outer Layer consists of a wide range of waterproof jackets and trousers, wind shirts, thermal fleeces and softshell jackets and vests. The DryJoys Select (£295 rain jacket; £200 rain trousers) is the flagship garment, offering 25,000mm waterproof protection (WP) and remaining incredibly 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.
The FootJoy 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 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 an incredible 44 polo shirts for golfers to choose from in the latest Autumn/Winter Performance Golf Apparel range.
FootJoy’s ProDry Performance Thermal Base Layer Mock plays a crucial role in maintaining body temperature and is offered in three different colour options. Autumn/Winter 2016 also see the continuation of FootJoy’s ProDry Performance Seamless Base Layer, which provides superb comfort and mobility, as well as body-mapping technology to guarantee breathability.
The Autumn/Winter 2016 Performance Golf Apparel collection from FootJoy will be available in stores from August. For more information on the FJ brand, visit www.FootJoy.co.uk or follow on Twitter at @FootJoyEurope.
