In this seemingly never-ending winter golf season, layering your clothing is key. From marathon runners to college golfers, athletes are finding new ways to stay warm while competing. And most importantly, they’re doing it all without apparel interference. Staying warm is essential to keep your muscles loose and limber. It’s also important to do so without adding restriction or access fabric in places that can sometimes prohibit certain movements. With cooler temps in the mornings and at dusk, golfers need to remember to bundle up to help keep their core body temperature regulated. However, there is a fine line between bundling up and bulking up.

One great option seen on fairways? Nike’s Thermasleeves.

Rather than wearing bulky jackets, sweaters or vests, the Thermasleeve allows for easy on and off application. They also provide UV protection and have Dri-FIT moisture-wicking properties that help to regulate your body temperature.

So, next time you’re headed to the course and are unsure of how many layers to wear, consider grabbing a set of Thermasleeves and feel the warmth only where you want it.
