By the time of the 1947 Ryder Cup, common sense had prevailed as golfers began to realise that to dress for golf, the tradition of wearing their trousers tucked into their socks was no longer vogue. Instead, a relaxed fashion was introduced, with casual attire worn on the golf course.
Inspiration spread from Arnold Palmer, who would dress for golf in a short sleeve polo shirt and khaki trousers. The emergence of Arnold Palmer changed the game’s look. ‘The King’ would play in a cotton shirt, lightweight tan trousers and oxford shoes, to emphasise his athleticism. Other golfers like Ben Hogan also set the tone for golf fashion in the 1950s as the casual trend continued and knitted polos became the norm on the course
Can you dress for golf in the winter? – Roll neck jumpers are the best when it comes to comfort and design in winter. Worn casually or formally, there’s no way they won’t work this season.
