Favorite Golf Shirt


TCUfrog

Recommended Posts

Posted earlier, but an update. I will never buy another Travis Matthews polo shirt again. I have two, the collars always look like crap, and they run (very) small and even shrink a little (nowadays that's unnecessary). Maybe they're great if you're a young buck in top shape who is looking for tight fitting clothes (with a crappy collar), but not for larger or even average sized guys IMO. I am far happier with all my Nike, UA, Callaway polos than the TMs I paid way more for!

I have a pair to TM Beck shorts too. Liked them better, but I am noticing UV is attacking the color for more than any other brand of shorts I own (Callaway, Adidas, IZOD, WH).

I don't see any reason to pay a premium for TM...YMMV

I know there are a lot of Peter Millar fans in this forum (and some who think they are too expensive to sweat in...) for the fans you might enjoy this GD article about them - https://www.golfdigest.com/story/why-golf-shirt-brands-have-staying-power-survival-of-the-fitted

Looking to find an authentic good quality linen, not cotton, shirt for next summer.  I've heard real linen is cooler in summer and warmer in winter and the older they get the better they perform.  Sounds like just the thing for a walk-carry player.  I know linen shirts can get quite expensive so looking for insights from one's direct golf experience with them, or from just regular wear, as well as supplier sources. 

Linen shrinks more than cotton and wrinkles badly; must steam iron.  I'm sure it looks great when properly cared for, but I'm not going to work that hard to wear a shirt.

Good quality linen that does not wrinkle but instead rumples is expensive due to being thicker while still very comfortable to wear.  I have a couple better quality linen polo shirts that I occasionally wear while playing golf.  Have never seen this quality level in golf shirts and will end up being very expensive from a top tier brand.

For golf shirts the two main brands I wear are J Lindeberg and Galvin Green.  Slim fits and they always seem to last 3+ years of hard wear.  Generally can buy for around 50% retail in the off season which I think is good value.

I have been lucky to get two full seasons out of other golf polos.  Polos from Travis Mathews and Penguin can't even make it through one year for me.

The golf shirts I wear mostly are 100% cotton from the Augusta National Golf Club. They are a mix of private label — Augusta, Masters, etc. — and Bobby Jones, Peter Millar, Slazenger, and Polo by Ralph Lauren. Since any shirt with a polyester-cotton blend pills, I refuse to purchase them, and 100% polyester shirts are just way too hot and sticky. 100% Sea Island cotton golf shirts by Brioni, Turnbull and Asser, Gucci, Proper Cloth, Apposta, and Sunspel are silky smooth and soft. The very BEST golf shirts in the world are 100% Sea Island Cotton by Loro Piana, but they start at $2250 each.

Peter Millar, LinkSoul, Travis Matthews do not want my business, so I never wear their shirts.  They do not make any larger sizes (3X for me), so its an easy pass.

FootJoy are my favorites, though they are limited in larger sizes. But I also truly enjoy wearing William Murray, since they started adding larger sizes a few years ago.  Nice weight, cool in summer, and fun designs without getting too LoudMouth-like,

Used to have a lot of Puma, UA but a couple years ago Kjus had a sale (buy 1 get 2 free) and they are the best.  I also really like Linksoul shirts and shorts, they are my go to shorts.  More recently I found out about TASC.  TASC has bamboo in the mix and are some of the softest shirts ever.  Hard to beat the Rhoback designs as well, very well made and comfortable.  And since we have a Rhodesian Ridgeback, I could not resist getting one of their shirts.  🙂

Donald Ross shirts are great , also Dunning, Greyson, Devereau, and G-Fore are my go to shirts.  These shirts offer great fit, comfort, and their designs are unique.

I have a golfing buddy who keeps us laughing.  Before teeing off there was this guy with a big beer belly and a nice shirt.  My buddy says "nice shirt, where did you get it?"  The guy answered and my buddy says "Oh, I thought you got it in the maternity section".  Everyone around us cracked up including the guy with the beer gut.

I am a total Donald Ross guy, been buying them for about 6 years, especially when they're on sale, a bit pricey, but not any more than Peter Millar. I used to be an Ashworth guy till they were bought out and ruined by Taylor Made/Addidas.  Ross has two fits, regular for guys who like the more "traditional" fit and a new more youthful fit. I will also buy Footjoy once in a while(very good quality) especially when it's on sale.

For a selection of more 'interesting' patterns, as well as traditional polos, give this YouTuber's site a look. I have several in my collection and can say that they are very well made and comfortable - and fun - to wear on the course. Nice selection of other golf apparel and goodies as well.

Antigua is a favorite of mine. Light weight comfortable not the most expensive and not the cheapest either. There used to be an Antigua Store in Anthem, AZ but that was 20 years ago. My family just got another one with my favorite sports team on it for Christmas. Haven't worm it yet during play. Maybe this weekend for my match play round. Hopefully the team decides to show up for the next game.

I have a bunch of synthetic material type shirts as I can't stand cotton when it's hot out. My 3 latest shirts: Addias and 2 Greg Norman. All 3 are 100% polyester and very comfortable in hot humid Florida weather. Note: I buy them at our pro shop which runs some pretty deep discount sales.

PM makes great apparel and can be found in certain pro shops so you can at least try on before dropping a C- note. Our company  shirts were PMs until we transitioned to Stitch, which in my opinion are better fitting and just as comfortable with more distinct patterns than PM and love their stay button collars.   I have however purchased a few Greyson and PXG shirts which are excellent well fitting shirts and very comfortable and stylish.   My off and on course shirt rotation are the 4 above.  My son has a few Johnny O shirts that he loves but has recently taken a liking to Stitch shirts 🙂

PM is top notch. They definitely are not cheap. I believe the one someone was mention that is more fitted without the wings is the “crown crafted” fit. This is by far their best shirts. They are tailored fit and very breathable and comfortable. The summer comfort and other fits are just too loose for my liking. Sleeves are usually way too long as well. Crown crafted is the only polo I’ll buy in PM now. 
Other great options that I like are the Polo Ralph Lauren RLX golf line. Very light and breathable, awesome fit. Greyson is another great option, as well as G/Fore. They will all cost you a pretty penny, but those 4 are very hard to beat.

Just bought and wore my first Peter Millar golf shirt, probably the nicest golf shirt I've ever owned. It cost me $88 (on sale), but I don't mind paying for quality (what I haven't gotten from Travis Mathews polos or shorts 😠). TM looks good on the rack, but sizing isn't accurate, the collars are garbage, and they don't wash well.

So I am looking at a new shirt (I need an orange mixed with some white) to go with my titleist hat....Bought one a few weeks ago that looked and said orange but its not quote orange, closer to red. Its a great shirt and going to keep it but has not solved my issue!

I saw Rhoback has been replied to in here and am going to read through but figured I would ask the question and see who responds. Anyone buy from rhoback here? Quality good?

There are many great golf shirt brands on the market that offer high-quality fabrics and stylish designs to enhance your game-day look. One popular option is Nike Golf, which offers a range of polo shirts made with sweat-wicking materials and mesh panels for breathability during hot rounds. Another reputable brand is Under Armour Golf, known for their comfortable yet performance-driven polos made with stretchy fabrics that allow you to move freely and swing with ease. Additionally, TravisMathew has become increasingly popular among golfers due to their trendy patterns and modern fits. Ultimately it comes down to personal preference when selecting a new golf polo - comfort, style, fit etc., so try out different brands until you find the one that best suits your needs.

The PM lines are always top tier, Greyson makes my personal favorites though! Others to look at: J.Lindenburg (Viktor Hovland wears this) and Good Good Golf (seriously, not a joke). The quality on both of those brands is just as high as the PM. although they are both priced similarly, you won’t be wearing the same shirt as the other guys in your weekly foursome.
