This is the most important part of your wardrobe as far as your performance on the course is concerned. Your golf shoes give you traction on the fairway, in the rough and in the bunker. This should give you confidence that you will not slip or lose your footing as you swing at the golf ball. Trying to hit a golf ball from the bunker without golf shoes is a very difficult assignment because you can't grab a foothold without them.
Golfers can purchase wind suits that help to provide stability while swinging the club. A wind suit not only allows the wind to blow by with a limited impact on the golfer, it also protects the golfer from rain or other elements.
A golf shirt is a fashion statement but it also helps the golfer contend with the heat of a round played in the middle of a hot summer day. Made of cotton, the breathable material allows the golfer to stay cool and have a freedom of movement that he otherwise wouldn't have if he was wearing a heavier material.
A golfer generally wears a glove on his left hand only. This is the lead hand for a right-handed golfer and it is the one that steers the club on its backswing, down swing and follow through. It also absorbs the brunt of the impact when the clubhead hits the ball. Wearing a glove lessens friction and helps prevent blisters.
