Callaway continues the 2017 season with their Opt-Series technology. This fabric technology keeps you dry (Opti-Dri), moves with you (Opti-Stretch), keeps you protected from the sun (Opti-Shield) and offers the ultimate in comfort and performance (Opti-Soft). The Men’s Opti-Dri Chest Stripe Polo has several of these features built-in. Opt-Dri wicks moisture away from the body, keeping you cool under the hot summer sun and Opti-Stretch provides full range of motion, allowing you to swing freely. No need to worry about harmful UV rays either; Opti-Shield provides a UPF 50 layer of protection from the sun’s harmful rays. The self-collar, two-button placket and three horizontal stripes across the chest give this polo a crisp, clean look. The Callaway Tour Logo on the left sleeve identifies the brand. Best of all, the color combinations in this polo will go with just about anything. The Opti-Dri Chest Stripe Polo is available in sizes S-XXL and in two colors: Bright White, which has a Black chest stripe highlighted with Gray, and Bright White/Highrise, a Blue chest stripe highlighted with Gray. Retail price is $70.
The Opti-Soft Heather Printed Stripe Polo is made from Callaway’s 96% Polyester/4% spandex Opti-Stretch fabric and the two-colored horizontal stripes on a heathered background create a two-toned effect that pair beautifully with a solid-color pair of shorts or slacks. With Opt-Dri, you’ll stay dry throughout your round and well protected from the sun’s harmful rays. Opti-Soft gives this polo an ultra-soft feel and delivers unparalleled comfort. To complete the look, there’s a self-collar and three-button placket and the Callaway Chevron TPU Logo on the left sleeve let’s your foursome know what brand you’re wearing. The Opti-Soft Heather Printed Stripe Polo is available in sizes S-XXL and in 4 colorways: Bright White Heather, Moonlight Heather, Cloisonne Heather and Columbia. Retail price is $70.
Last year during the 2016 Masters, I saw Patrick Reed wearing a sharp looking Callaway Polo. As it turns out, it was Callaway’s Performance Color Block Golf Polo. The Performance Color Block Golf Polo is made from Callaway’s 95% Polyester/5% Spandex fabric that features Opti-Dri, Opti-Shield and Opti-Stretch technology. The two-tone color combination links together the shoulders, sleeves, ribbed collar and 3-button placket, and separates them from the shoulders and back. Throw in the Callaway Tour Logo on the left sleeve and you’ll look like a pro, even if you don’t swing like one. The Performance Color Block Golf Polo is available in sizes S-XXL and in 13 colors. Retail price ranges from $27.99 – $60.
Callaway’s Opti-Soft Essential Polo is extra soft to the touch and with all the Opti-Technology in this shirt, it could become the most popular polo in your closet. Opti-Dri keeps the moisture away, Opti-Shield keeps the sun away and Opti-Soft keeps you comfortable. The 94% Polyester/6% Spandex Opti-Stretch fabric uses interwoven layers of spandex to move with you through your golf swing and provides full range of motion for your arms. There’s a Callaway Tour Logo on left sleeve so no one will mistake whose brand your wearing. The Opti-Soft Essential Polo is available in sizes S-XXXL and retails for $60. Available colors include: Bright White, Cayenne, Asphalt and Cloisonne.
Any of the above-mentioned polos will pair well with Callaway’s Lightweight Tech Short with Active Waistband. The 89% Polyester/11% Spandex Opti-Stretch material has four-way stretch technology and the stretch waistband allows these pants to move with you, meaning you can swing away off the tee. With Opti-Dri, you’ll be comfortable no matter where you are on the course and with Opt-Shield you can rest assured you’re well protected from sun. There’s a Callaway Tour Logo embroidered above the back-right pocket. The Lightweight Tech Short with Active Waistband is available in sizes 30-44 and in three colors: Peacoat, Caviar and Highrise.

Callaway has gone the extra mile to create a skort that is so comfortable, it’s more like a pair of shorts. The Opti-Stretch Elastic Waist Sporty Skort has a power mesh panel and four-way stretch inside the shorts for a slimming effect and with all the Opti-Power (Opti-Dri, Opti-Shield and Opti-Stretch), how can you go wrong. There’s also a Callaway Chevron heat seal logo on the back-right side. It’s available in XS-XL and only in Caviar. It too costs a mere $60.
For those ladies that are a little less subdued and want to channel their inner Jon Daly, Callaway has introduced the Opti-Stretch Two-Tone Floral Skort. The 95% Polyester/5% Spandex Opti-Stretch material stays with you through the entire golf swing and the elastic waist band and power mesh panel with tummy control provides a look that slims your figure and delivers incredible comfort. Opti-Dry will keep the moisture away during your round and Opti-Shield keeps you protected from the sun. The all-over Hawaiian style floral pattern will make you the best dressed lady on the course and have others asking questions. The liner mesh shorts and 2″ vent on the front left seam line help to cool things down.
