Ever since 1959, when the company got its start in the garage of Karsten Solheim, the name PING has always been synonymous with golf. And to think that it all started with a putter that made a distinctive sound. Today, PING is synonymous with innovation, quality and service in the world of golf.
Like most big name golf manufacturers, PING is part of the apparel industry and their 2016 Spring Collection for both men and women is quite impressive.
Let’s start with the men. The Rosco II Short is PING’s answer to lightweight. They’re created from PING’s sensorcool technology fabric, which is 100% polyester and provides superior moisture wicking properties. The moisture-moving finish is fast drying and draws perspiration away from the body keeping you dry for complete comfort in play. The mechanical stretch fabric moves with you throughout the golf swing without any pinching and binding; it’s also crease resistant. The Rosco II Short is available in waist sizes 30”-44” and in several colors: Navy, White, Stone and Black. Retail price is $69.95. The Rosco II Shorts pair well with Men’s Shaw Stripe Polo.
The Shaw Stripe Polo is an engineered stripe polo. It also features sensorcool technology which draws perspiration away from the body, keeping you dry for complete comfort in play. The 92% Polyester, 8% Elastane material has that little bit extra stretch to get you through the entire golf swing comfortably. It’s crease resistant and the UPF 45 fabric keeps you protected from the sun’s harmful rays. The Men’s Shaw Stripe Polo is available in sizes S-XXL and in three color combinations: Navy, Deep Sea Blue and Lilac. Retail price is $89.00.
Another great men’s polo from PING is the WES Polo. This solid color polo is a 51% Polyester, 49% Pima Cotton blend and features sensorcool technology designed to keep you and comfortable throughout your entire round. It is cottony fabric is very soft to the touch and it’s crease resistant and has a UPF of 50+. The Wes Polo is available in sizes S-XXL and in three colors: Blue Lagoon, Deep Lilac and Deep Sea Blue. Retail price is $89
PING has a lot to offer the women too. The Domenique Skort has a wrap-around look combined with an asymmetric front hem which creates a very unique look. PING’s sensorcool technology draws moisture away from your body and keeps you cool and dry throughout the day. The Domenique Skort is made from a mechanical stretch material and is a moderate length and measures 17” at the side seam including the waistband; the length of the inside shorts is 4.7” so ladies can wear this garment with confidence. The Domenique Skort is available in sizes 4-16 and in either White or Navy and is available at online retailers for $99.00. This skort pairs well with the Mila Polo.
Ping’s women’s Halie Polo is a printed polo that features fresh guard odor control. The 85% Polyester, 15% Cotton fabric has an ultra-soft, natural feel and dries up to 4 times faster than a 100% cotton polo thanks to PING’s sensorcool technology. Halie is a sharp looking polo that will have others asking about the brand. It’s available in sizes 4-16 and in Viola only and is available at online retailers for $99.00.
Ladies, if shorts are more your style then check out the Alana Shorts for PING. They are made from a 100% Polyester material that provides enough stretch to get you through the golf swing without any pinching, binding or any other unnecessary actions. They are a moderate 9.8” on the inside seam and provide good coverage and the sensorcool technology will keep you dry and comfortable. The Alana Short is available in sizes 4-16 and in either a Deep Cobalt or Mineral Color. They can be found online for $95.00.
The Mila Polo is a sheer paneled polo that also features sensorcool technology and wicks moisture away from the body for quick evaporation. The fabric is very soft to the touch and the 5% Spandex in the Polyester material gives you that extra stretch you need and the fact that this shirt is crease resistant makes it super easy to care for. The Mila Polo is available in sizes 4-16 and in White or Deep Cobalt Blue. It can be found online for $89.00.
From what I’ve seen, none of the women’s garments are available in anything less than a size 4 and according to my wife, run true to size. In other words, some of you ultra-petit woman may be out of luck, unless you are skilled with a needle and thread! Guys, you have nothing to worry about; everything fits as it should. The quality of these garments are what you would expect from a company with such high standards as PING. To see the collection online, visit their website at www.PING.com.
