By Jason Bruno

Featured in our Best New Products from the '18 PGA Merchandise

Show earlier this year were product lines from two of the game's most

iconic brands - Greg Norman and Antigua. Both leaders of industry not

only for their fabrics and styles, but for what they consistently offer the

consumer in terms of value. So here's a few of our favorite items from

both available this spring . . .

 

 

GREG NORMAN COLLECTION

 

The Greg Norman Collection for 2018 features their Foreward Series,

a mix of comfort, performance and cutting edge technology. A vast

combination of fabrics, colors and classic styles (like subtle stripes,

heathers and solids) make up what the Shark considers a lifestyle

brand rather than just your standard run of mill golf apparel.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Greg Norman's new Brisbane Chino short is 98% cotton/2% spandex

that features an extremely soft to the touch cotton that appears heavier

in weight than how it wears. The really convenient performance stretch

waistband is a detail that should not be overlooked (especially for those

no longer sporting a 28" waistline) when searching for comfortable links

shorts (or pants), even more so if you prefer walking your tee to green

activities.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

An example of the variety of polos the Greg Norman Collection offers

consumers in '18. Shown above - ML75 Foulard Print Polo (Sea Glass)

and the new Foreward Series polos (Carribean Blue w/white stripe and

Navy). Moisture Management 1/4 Zip Mock Pullover (Sterling Gray).

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A close up of the ML75 Foulard Print Polo (Sea Glass) collar shows the

impeccable quality, but doesn't convey how fantastic this silky to the

touch garment feels when you're out on the fairways or afterwards at

dinner.

 

 

 

 

 

 


 

The unmistakeable Shark logo is a nice touch on back panel of the

Foulard print.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Every golfer needs gear for those cool early morning tee times and chilly

spring evenings, GN's Moisture Management 1/4 Zip Mock light weight

layering garment is must for all traveling linksters.

 


 

SUMMARY

The Greg Norman philosophy of a lifestyle brand rather than a golf apparel

brand has become what they are known for, and has served them well. In

fact, it's quite common when I'm out somewhere wearing something from

Greg Norman, a colleague or golfing friend will comment "That shirt (or

jacket) is sweet, is it new? And what brand is that?" My usual reply, sounds

like a TV ad - 'Thanks, it's by Greg Norman - they make really nice stuff and

the prices are actually very reasonable considering the quality'.

Antigua Sportswear

 

Antigua is such a huge favorite of so many that consider sportswear to be

their apparel of choice. Their Men's Performance-72 line shows off the iconic

brand's newest links styles for 2018. Featuring Antigua's Desert Dry Xtra-

Lite moisture wicking fabric, THEORY and COVERT (shown above) are sure

to be two of the best selling polos on the shortgrass this year.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

COVERT, 90% polysester/10% spandex features a brilliant mini heather

broken stripe print, self fabric collar, open cuff sleeves and side slits in

a magnificent hue of Boysenberry.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Antigua's THEORY, 92% polyester/8% spandex (shown in Poseidon Blue),

combines a solid top panel with a yarn dye micro verticle stripe on the lower

half. An uncommon pairing that works in perfect harmony. Self fabric collar,

open cuff sleeves and side slits are all more reasons why Antigua has created

the loyal following that they have. First class . . .

that adds a bit of panache to your Sunday Four-ball group.
