A polo we have seen on the likes of Rory McIlroy, this Striped polo is a nod to classic looking rugby tops and it really looks good both on and off the golf course. It is part of Nike's continued impetus into environmental issues as it is made from 100% recycled materials using a blend of both recycled polyester and organic cotton fibres.  Additionally what we really like about Nike clothing is the attention to detail, with small things like the orange labels which pay homage to the original shoe box.

Nike Dri-FIT Vapor Texture Polo

Available in several colors, and seen out on Tour with the likes of Brooks Koepka and Tiger Woods wearing it, the Vapor polo is made using predominately polyester (61% & 39% Nylon), which allows it to be both breathable and moisture-wicking. Given some of the other designs you will see below, it is also understated and simple which many golfers will prefer.

What seems to be a favourite of Rory McIlroy, this Color Block design is part of the Player range and looks great. The polo has Dri-FIT technology at the core of the construction which helps Rory stay dry and comfortable, and the Player moniker adds a couple of premium details like the pearlised buttons and soft feel.

Another popular model out on Tour, the Vapor line actually consists of rather muted designs, and ones like the Striped, and Graphic versions as well (pictured above).

The back of the collar is perforated for breathability in this high-heat area too which is a nice touch.

Nike may not make golf clubs anymore but it continues to draw a lot of attention in the golf apparel and golf shoe market. The latest illustration of that is this new Nike 'Tiger Woods (opens in new tab)' polo which features a patch on the chest that is a silhouette of Wood's iconic fist pump

The striped design looks great, and we like the fact it is made from 100% sustainable materials using a blend of both recycled polyester and organic cotton fibres. Lots of brands are going down the environmentally friendly route and it is good to see Nike continuing to do so in its premium products.

Other premium details include the classic Nike Golf Shield patch which is featured below the back of the collar, as well as the presence of Dri-FIT technology which moves sweat away from your skin for quicker evaporation, helping you stay dry and comfortable.

A Nike shirt that also mimics the lines and markings of a golf course, this polo brings a touch of fashion to the fairways. We think it differentiates it from most other polos on the market whilst also being subtle enough to wear at any golfing establishment. It's been made using predominately polyester (61% & 39% Nylon) which allows it to be both breathable and moisture-wicking.

Nike Dri-Fit Victory Stripe Polo

Specifications

Sizes: XS-4XL
Colors: 6

One of the best men's golf shirts to use both on and off the course, this Striped model has proven very popular amongst the world's elite golfers. Much like the models above, it feels great on the skin, performs well and we particularly liked the dropped tail hem which means it looks great both tucked in and untucked. Unquestionably its versatility is the main advantage though because you can use it anywhere making it good value for money.

Sizes: S-4XL

An understated design, what sets this apart is its 75% recycled polyester construction. Nike achieve this by taking recycled plastic bottles, which are then cleaned, shredded into flakes and converted into pellets. These pellets are then spun into new, high-quality yarn, which is then transformed into a shirt that performs well, but with a lower impact on the environment.

How we test golf apparel

We test golf apparel (opens in new tab) in the same way we test all golf equipment, by using products properly. In relation to polo shirts this means putting them to the test out on the golf course to see if the design is well thought out, if it moves nicely throughout the swing, and simply if the polo is usable. Additionally, wearing it on the course in different conditions gives us an idea on breathability, warmth if needed, and looks. 

We would also wear the polos off the golf course as well because versatility to use a garment anywhere is a great way to get value for money. The final point we wanted to mention here is no manufacturer can pay for a good review because our thorough testing team tells it how it is. 

What to consider when buying a golf shirt

As mentioned, there is a lot to think about when picking the right polo shirt for you. With that in mind, we have come up with several things for you to think about before purchasing a Nike model.

Length - During the golf swing if you find your shirt coming untucked often, or your belly starts to show then you should think about a polo with a longer length. That way it will remain tucked in throughout the round and beyond.

Fit - Do you want a more loose fitting polo or something with more of an athletic fit? Slim fit or classic fit? Most polos come in lots of sizes so be wary of getting something that isn't fitting correctly for you.

Sleeves - It doesn't sound that important, but a polo with sleeves too long or too short can be annoying. They should come to the middle of the upper arm, and the seam should align with the middle of the shoulders.

Fabric - Have a think about what fabric you would like the polo to be made from. For example, there are loads of materials used these days such as polyester, spandex, lycra, nylon and cotton. Often polos are made with a combination of these.

Technology - Brands like Nike make polo shirts that offer technology to help in a variety of ways. For example, many help with moisture management and sweat wicking which keeps the body dry and comfortable. Some also offer UV protection and anti-microbial properties too, so it is worth thinking about what aspect you find important here. Of course, several of the models above have been designed with all of these facets in mind.

Design - Striped? Floral? An all-over print? Gone are the days of drab boring polo designs and in modern golf brands like Nike really push the boat out. The sheer array of polo shirts we picked out above shows this clearly. Whatever fashion sense you have, there will be a polo for you.

Price - Of course the price is always something people should think about. There is great value to be had with the models above but there are also more premium models for those wanting to spend a little more. Put simply, there is something for everyone.
