There's nothing wrong with wearing a cotton golf shirt, but over the last couple of years, apparel companies have started to push the envelope with regards to new materials that are highly-breathable and extremely soft feel.
Ashworth Golf is one of the latest to do just that with its new EZ-TEC2 collection, EZ-Sof. Made with 100% polyester jersey, the shirt features soft-feel construction and high-breathable performance fabric, which allows the golf shirt to deliver lightweight comfort and a brushed-like feel.
"This is a new category for Ashworth," said Susan Bush, VP Ashworth Golf. "In the past we've focused primarily on cotton-based apparel. With EZ-Sof, we've created a lightweight polo that not only incorporates the benefits of a best-performing synthetic, it also has a superior hand feel that golfers everywhere are going to love."
A number of PGA TOUR players have been extremely impressed with the new line, including 8-time PGA TOUR Justin Rose."It's important to feel good on the course, golfers need comfort, performance and looks to play well," said Rose. "Ashworth's new fabrics and style delivers everything a golfer needs on and off the course."
EZ-Sof shirts will be worn worldwide by Ashworth staffers including Justin Rose, Justin Leonard, Johnson Wagner and Retief Goosen.
