Prepare for all types of weather

Abstract:
Even in Hawaii during today's final round of the season-opening Mercedes Championship, the conditions under which a round of golf is played are varied and constantly changing.

The fact that a round takes about four hours to complete places golfers firmly at the mercy of the elements. This makes having the proper clothing and equipment with you on the course to deal with inclement weather a necessity.

The players of today are very fortunate to have modern science and technology to equip them, especially with innovations such as nanotechnology, which enables rain to bounce off jackets, shirts to feel warm in the winter and cool in the summer, and grips to resist moisture.

For example, the fabrics of shirts and slacks are designed for movement and comfort in all weather. The material of outerwear is whisper cloth, which is lightweight, quiet and designed to be worn in layers during a round of golf. This type of high-tech clothing allows players to not be impeded when playing a golf shot.
