Under Armour Spring 2018 Golf Apparel
- Try on Something New This Year
By David Theoret
Once again, Under Armour leads the way with golf apparel for both men and women. The combination of fabrics, technology, cutting-edge designs and a wide palette of colors has helped to set them apart.
Under Armour's Flawless Men's Golf Polo is sure to be a game changer. Bigger guys will love its comfort because of the loose, fuller cut. The 55% Cotton/34% Polyester/11% Rayon fabric has an anti-pick. anti-pill, snag free finish. This polo wicks away moisture for quick evaporation and has been treated with an anti-microbial agent that prevents the growth of odor-causing microbes. UPF 30+ sun protection keeps those harmful rays at bay. But what sets this polo apart is the hypnotic gradient pattern; it's sure to turn some heads. The Flawless Men's Golf Polo is available in sizes S - 3XL and in 7 color combinations: Pierce/Pierce, Mediterranean/Academy, Black/Black, Tropical Tide/Teal Punch, Academy/Academy, Neon Coral/Red, or White/Zinc Gray. Retail price is $65.
You'll need some shorts to go with your new polo and the Showdown Pattern Men's Shorts are the perfect fit (pun intended). The Showdown Shorts are sewn from a light, stretchy woven fabric that flexes with your every move and a stretch waistband that delivers superior comfort and uncompromised mobility. Under Armour's new streamlined fit reduces drag on every swing and the moisture wicking fabric keeps you cool and comfortable for the entire round. The two front pockets are deep enough for your treasured golf possessions and the back pockets provide ample space for a golf card. The Showdown Pattern Men's Shorts are available in sizes 30 - 40 and in Academy/Zinc Gray, Black/Steel Medium Heather, or White/Steel Medium Heather. Retail price is $75.
If long pants are more your style, the Under Armour Perpetual Golf Pants show off exhibit 20 years of cutting-edge Under Armour technology. Nothing has been overlooked starting with lightweight stretch-woven fabrics that are not only comfortable but are engineered to stretch every which way - but not loose. UA Storm technology repels water without sacrificing breathability and an anti-odor agent prevents the growth of odor-causing microbes. The stretch-engineered waistband only adds to the comfort of these pants and the straight leg fit allows you to show off your new Under Armour Golf shoes. Available in sizes 30 - 42 and in either Zink Gray or Black, the Perpetual Golf Pants retail for $130.
Even if you're not a Jordan Spieth fan, the Elevated Jordan Spieth Tour Cap features a pre-curved visor & structured front that help to maintain its shape with a low-profile fit. It has a unique one-panel construction, and the UA Microthread fabric gives this lid greater stretch and recovery, an ultra-soft feel and more breathable performance. The built-in HeatGear sweatband wicks away sweat to keep you cool & dry and the seamless fit eliminates all distractions. Except of course from adoring fans. A raised TPU front logo and heat seal Jordan Spieth logo on back, lets everyone know your favorite player. As fitted hats go, the Elevated Jordan Spieth Tour Cap is one of the most comfortable hats you'll find. It's available in either M/L or L/XL and in Black, White, Academy, or Gray. Retail price is $35.
When it comes to ladies' golf apparel, Under Armour gives women a lot of choices. One of the more popular skorts is the Links Knit Skort is one of those comfortable garments that you can wear to the course in the morning and leave it on all day long. The super-soft performance knit construction delivers an unprecedented level of comfort and the skintight fit won't inch or bind. Built in compression shorts add an extra level of coverage and support and the moisture wicking fabric keeps you dry all day long. The 4-way stretch construction moves with you every step of the way and the wide, flat waistband has a hidden storage pocket. What sets this skort apart is the woven pleated back panel, which adds style and flair. To keep your valuables safe and secure, there are open hand pockets in the front and a zippered back pocket. The Links Knit Skort is available in sizes XS - XL and in Tourmaline Teal. Retail price is $70 Fitted: Next-to-skin without the squeeze.
Under Armour's Links Printed 4" Shorts are sewn from a lightweight and durable stretch woven fabric with superior comfort and breathability and a stretch-engineered waistband with an adjustable inner elastic that delivers a perfect fit. The fabric has been treated with UA Storm technology which repels water. Although these short shorts only have a 4" inseam, they have five pockets and a working zipper. Come on, it's time to show off those legs you worked on all winter! The Links Printed 4" Shorts are available in sizes 0- 16, and in either Academy/Moroccan Blue Light Heather or Black/Moroccan Blue. Retail price is $75.
Ladies love Under Armour's Threadborne Printed Short Sleeve Polo for a couple of reasons. One may be the loose fit which is generous and more relaxed. Another may be the Threadborne Siro fabric, which is super-light, dries incredibly fast & won't cling to you when things heat up. Or maybe it's the anti-odor technology which prevents the growth of odor-causing microbes, keeping you smelling your best all day long. My guess the overall feminine appeal, with the mock neck, open V-neck placket and pleats in the back. The allover print adds to a truly unique look. The Threadborne Printed Short Sleeve Polo is available in sizes XS -XXL and in either Talc Blue or White. Retail price is $65. Also from the ladies' Threadborne family is the Threadborne Jacquard Short Sleeve Polo, which is available in Tropical Tide/Tourmaline Teal.
These days a lot of ladies are wearing leggings to make a statement. Not only do they keep your legs warm, the bright colors and crazy designs you see give others an idea of your take on life. Under Armour has a number of leggings that golfing gals will find golf-appropriate. Their Vanish Crop Studio Leggings fit next to the skin without any squeeze or pinch and the super-silky performance fabric stretches without sacrificing and has the staying power to support and conceal without looking big and bulky. The UA Microthread finish in the fabric dries faster without cling to you and the advanced seam placement eliminates pressure points and reduces chafing. The waistband has also been outfitted with an envelope back storage pocket. The Vanish Crop Studio Leggings are available in XS - XXL and in Merlot/Neon Coral, Tourmaline Teal, or Black. Retail price is $60.
If you're a fan of Under Armour golf apparel, you probably already have a Zinger Sleeveless Polo or two in your closet. It's available in 7 different colors and lets a gal show off her tan. The soft anti-pick, anti-pill fabric has a cleaner, snag-free finish and the 4-way stretch construction moves with her in every direction. Moisture-wicking and an anti-microbial finish keep you dry and fresh all day. The Zinger features a self-collar and a great look. Retail price is $55.

David Theoret has been in the golf and golf travel industry for over 10 years, primarily selling online advertising. For the past seven years, he has also been a golf writer, reviewing golf courses, resorts, destinations, equipment, golf apparel, and training aids - the latter of which never seems to help. David's articles and reviews have been posted on many golf travel and equipment websites.
Growing up in Southwestern Ontario, Canada, it was naturally assumed he would play hockey. Beginning at the age of 3 and continuing into his late 30's, he did just that. However, after one too many pucks to the head, he realized that golf was a lot easier on the body (whoever said hockey players were slow) and took the game up.
After moving to Florida and accepting a position with TravelGolf Media (now part of GolfNow) his love for the game grew exponentially. Most Saturdays you will find him on a course somewhere in Florida or on the practice range reinforcing his bad habits. David plays to a 10 handicap - unless there is money involved in which case it goes considerably higher. He currently resides in Lakeland, FL with his wife Belinda and their two "kids", Madyson and Molly.
