New Ping Polo Range

#LovelyStuff

Gone are the days you just grabbed your old-faithful polo out of your wardrobe and chucked it on. These days, the polo shirts on offer from golf brands are put through the kind of technological rigmarole previously reserved for NASA space suits. 

You're not just choosing a nice looking polo that you think will make you look a bit like Brandon Stone. You're buying a tried-and-tested garment that has been through an exhaustive golf-polo-shirt-medical, involving stretching racks, saunas, ice baths and quite a bit of prodding with electric sticks.... Don't worry, you're still just as likely to look like Brandon Stone.

New Ping Polo RangeSo when PING tell us they are launching their most comprehensive and technologically advanced polo-shirt range to date, you better listen up and smell the research.

The new range demonstrates PING’s commitment to source and utilise the world’s finest performance driven fabrics, creating designs that are engineered to perform at the highest level for Tour players, including Open winnner Louis Oosthuizen and, yes, Brandon Stone.

New Ping Polo RangeBrett polo

The collection’s flagship Brett and Harris designs incorporate COOLMAX® ALL SEASON fabric technology.

This transports moisture away from the body to keep the wearer cool and dry on hot days (they call it wicking in the building trade, I believe – stops bricks getting too wet), while the fibre structure provides insulation on colder days, preventing you having to wear too many layers which as we all know, renders your golf swing unleashable in a phone box.

Easton Polo

There isn't, unfortunately an Ellis polo as far as we know. Which is a shame because Ping could then have had the Brett, Easton, Ellis collection... you know, the famous author?.... Of American Psycho?... and  (I think you're fighting a losing battle here... – Ed)

New Ping Polo Range

As well as being designed to enhance both comfort and performance in all playing conditions, the new collection features several new colour stories, including the eye-catching Mercury Rising palette, infused with a Rich Red throughout.

The Ronan and Easton polos benefit from a refined aesthetic and modern fit that is present throughout the range. There's nothing too lairy in this range as far as we can gather. Instead, PING have concentrated on creating smart, cool designs that will inspire you to go and shoot the lights out. No two ways about it, if you look good, you feel good.
