Check out some of the best shirts on display during the 2021 PGA Championship

The Best Golf Shirts At The PGA Championship

The second Major of the year, the PGA Championship, is upon us and given the introduction of crowds, and the immense TV coverage of the event, there will be lots of eye balls watching the action from Kiawah Island.

As a result, many brands have sought to get players wearing not only some classic attire, but also some unique options that let them show their personality, and also pay homage to the host course and the state of South Carolina.

Acknowledging this, the Golf Monthly team put forward their favourite golf shirts on display at the event.

The Best Golf Shirts At The PGA Championship

Puma Palmetto Seersucker Polo

On Thursday Rickie Fowler opted for this polo, which is part of the new Palmetto collection for 2021. It features an all over Palmetto palm print which is a tree synonymous with South Carolina, the host state of the tournament.

Performance is not just cosmetic though as the Seersucker fabric has been modernised with moisture wicking technology and enhanced stretch for immaculate performance on the golf course.

Nike Dri-FIT Player Printed Polo

Rory McIlroy also went for an all over print option, the Nike Player Printed Polo. The abstract shapes give a unique look whilst it is also lightweight and stretchy.

adidas Ultimate365 Solid Polo

Xander Schauffele kept things simple and down to business with his golf attire during round one, wearing this classic Ultimate365 Solid polo in an acid mint finish. The colour really popped in the sun so it no doubt will work perfectly won your next golfing holiday.

Puma MATTR Science Polo

It seems right that Bryson would opt for a polo with a science theme for the opening round. The Puma MATTR Science polo has a number of scientific symbols on it in an all-over print style. The MATTR fabric is worth mentioning too because when we tested it in the One Way polo, we thought the performance was excellent as shown by its inclusion in our Editor’s Choice List for 2021.

It is a moisture-wicking, fast-drying fabric that has a breathable, stretchy and lightweight feel to it so you can play your best. It also has UPF 50+ protection to guard you against the sun’s harmful rays.

FootJoy Camo Floral Print Polo Shirt

A shirt design that came to our attention at The Masters, the Camo Floral polo from FootJoy has made an appearance at Kiawah too, by Webb Simpson and Jason Scrivener in the first round. We love the unique styling which is available in several cool colours.

adidas Primeknit Polo

Dustin Johnson may have struggled in his first round but his shirt game was fresh. The collarless design you can see above is the adidas Primeknit polo in an Acid Mint finish which seems to be the go-to colour for golf gear at the PGA Championship this year.

Under Armour Vanish Seamless Blocked Polo

Compared to the other shirts on this list the Seamless Blocked polo Jordan Spieth was wearing was very understated but we still liked it very much. As you would expect with Under Armour there is lots of technology involved in relation to breathability and comfort, but one construction element we should definitely mention is the nearly sew-free design to eliminate chafing. Given how common and uncomfortable that can be, we think that is an excellent design feature.
