Best Golfing Base Layers 2020

Take a look at our list of the Best Golfing Base Layers of 2020.

The base layer has become as staple of any serious golfer’s wardrobe. And they’re not just for the very coldest conditions. A good base layer can actually act to cool the body in challenging weathers and it can provide protection from the sun as well as excellent support to the muscles of the arms and the core.

The right base layer could help you to feel more comfortable on course and improve your scoring as a result. Below we highlight some of the best base layers on the market. As Meghan Trainor famously sang, it’s “all about that base!”
