The European Tour's flagship event returns to Wentworth next week and here we look ahead at the field which includes the full European Ryder Cup team for the first time since Medinah!
The 2013 BMW PGA Championship begins next week and will effectively be a European Ryder Cup reunion with all twelve players from the victorious team competing at Wentworth for the first time since Medinah. Back-to-back champion Luke Donald leads the triumphant squad in his bid to become only the second player after Colin Montgomerie to win the tournament in three successive years, but he is sure to face stern competition from the likes of Rory McIlroy and Justin Rose! Hugo Boss are once again official sponsors of this popular tournament and we can't wait to see how the week unfolds!
Luke Donald MBE will need to re-focus having visited Buckingham Palace just this week to collect his honour, and with his 2013 form not quite at its sparkling best it will be a tough challenge to retain the title for a third year! The brand new RLX golf collection that Luke wears has been a huge hit with GP customers and having re-stocked on several occasions, there is plenty on offer across golf shirts, trousers and outerwear too. Also keep an eye out for young Italian Matteo Manassero wearing the RLX range at the famous Wentworth Club in Surrey this week!
Luke's toughest competition may well come from the world number two and Ryder Cup counterpart Rory McIlroy - who will aim to ignite his season with a strong performance and high finish at the BMW PGA Championship. Having faced much criticism over the switch of his equipment and apparel to big-spenders Nike Golf, Rory will hope to further silence the doubters and excel once again at the highest level. Another player recently signed by Nike is the young Thorbjørn Olesen and we very much hope to see this stylish Dane up near the top of the leaderboard after his sterling Masters finish back in April. All of the media focus at Wentworth will surround the 2012 winning Ryder Cup squad but we believe this future Ryder-Cup star could certainly sneak a top 10 finish this week!
Powerhouse designer label Hugo Boss are very active in their sponsorship of golf events and players and the BMW PGA Championship is one of the key dates on the Boss calendar. Each of the assistants and volunteers will be provided with clothing from the brand new Green Label collection by Boss, whilst players such as Martin Kaymer, Tom Lewis and Alex Noren will all be wearing the new Pro Collection and hopefully scoring well enough to reach the top of the leaderboard come Sunday afternoon! The iconic Boss Hugo Boss logo will be almost everywhere you look at Wentworth and we can't wait to visit the fantastic Boss Green tour truck as seen below!
We hope you enjoy the BMW PGA Championship this week whether you are lucky enough to have tickets or if you are watching on the box at home, and make sure you keep an eye out for the next Golfposer x Hugo Boss competition set to launch later this week!
With the warmer weather showing glimpses of its arrival this week, we thought to take a look at the best of the golf shirts on offer from our latest brand collections!
This season, we have gone bigger and better than ever with the range of choice on offer from across our top golfing brands and here we pick out some of our favourite styles and colours for on the golf course! With the number of technical features rising year upon year, here we will also make sense of the technical jargon used across the brands with an aim of providing some clarity on how these golf shirts aid performance and leave you feeling as comfortable and as fresh as possible in the warmer Spring/Summer weather.
Beginning with a brand best known for their waterproof golf clothing, Galvin Green also provide some fantastic apparel and their fresh Spring/Summer range is a neat collection with some very stylish polo shirts featured. Galvin Green champion the 'Multi Layer Concept' and design every piece in their collections around this idea of mixing and matching garments to build the perfect outfit for any weather conditions and with Summer (hopefully) not too far away, the Max Tour shirt is the perfect golf shirt for warm and sunny weather. Sweating is the human body's natural reaction to an increase in body temperature and the moisture wicking fibres in Galvin Green shirts are fantastic for dispersing this extra moisture to keep you dry in key areas and as a result, far cooler than with many other golf shirts.
Every top professional knows the importance of golf clothing to their game, as we saw at the Masters a few weeks ago with the likes of Rickie Fowler sporting the very latest from Puma Golf, as seen above! Rickie works very closely with Puma to develop a brilliant range every season and using his professional feedback and opinion, the design team can incorporate the best technological features around such as DryCell and TransDry moisture wicking technology. This works very much in the same way as with Galvin shirts to leave you as dry and comfortable as possible whilst also reducing cling - key for maintaining concentration for ever shot on the course.
Other performance style golf shirts which we love for the new golfing season come from two of our newest brands, Oakley and Nike Golf! Since recruiting former Masters champion Bubba Watson, Oakley have gone from strength to strength and we love the look of this latest collection and also include clever anti-bacterial fabric inserts at key areas to prevent odours and maintain the freshness of the shirts for longer. 'Maximum breathability' is something which many golf shirt producers strive for and this term simply refers to the way the fabric prevents body heat and moisture build up, something achieved by Oakley with HydroMAX technology and Nike with their Dri-Fit fabrics.
At the higher end of the golf shirt market is both the Green Collection from Hugo Boss and the sublime RLX golf range from Ralph Lauren. Both of these collections well and truly stand out from the rest of the Spring/Summer ranges and are two of the most popular at Golfposer for sure. Hugo Boss now release four collections per year and the Summer 2013 range is now beginning to arrive online, with fresh colour ways and a few all new designs also included. As worn by Luke Donald, the RLX range has been incredibly successful and as a result - new stock is set to land online and in-store very soon!
The weather is brightening up and we are sure all of you are looking forward to getting more time out on the golf course so it's time to update your wardrobe with a few brand new golf shirts which will have you looking great and feeling better all season! As always, keep an eye out for all our new arrivals via social media such as Twitter and Facebook and also ensure you sign up to our email subscription for the latest news and offers!

With the golf season now finally under way, we thought to take a look at some of the latest golf shoes on offer for Spring/Summer!
So, the first major of the season has been and gone and the Masters 2013 was won in brilliant style by Adam Scott, the first Australian ever to wear the Green Jacket. We hope you enjoyed the week at Augusta as much as we did and we loved having some of the GP favourites contesting at the top of the leaderboard throughout the week - with Sergio, Dustin Johnson and Rickie Fowler each starting strongly and Jason Day eventually managing a top three finish. The Adidas players also caught the eye of many viewers as they wore the exact same outfit across each of the four days - which included the Limited Edition Masters AdiZero shoe!
Having already revolutionized the footwear of other sports such as football and basketball, the AdiZero shoe is without doubt one of the most popular shoes in golf already. Weighing in at an incredible 301 grams (38% less than a standard 360 tour shoe), the AdiZero Masters shoe has been engineered to remove all unneccessary weight but maintain the excellent level of comfort, support and traction for on the course. These standout golf shoes have an ultra thin outsole to bring you closer to the ground, feature the classic ThinTech cleat system for enhanced grip and also feature a SprintSkin microfibre upper with a 2 year waterproof warranty!
Also from the Adidas x Masters 2013 collection are the Ashworth Cardiff shoes in limited edition Masters Green and White - as worn by Justin Rose throughout last week! The spikeless Cardiff shoes are perfect for wearing both on and off the course with the intelligent outsole and these shoes also come with a 2 year waterproof warranty. The Cardiff shoes are very limited in number in the Masters colour way but they are also available in Black or White here.
Other spikeless golf shoes featured online at Golfposer come from an all new brand - Ecco Golf. These brilliant golf shoes feature the patented Ecco sole and the level of comfort on offer is unrivalled, which is possibly why Ecco is the brand of choice for many tour players such as Graeme McDowell, Masters starlet Thobjorn Olesen and also Freddie Couples. With high quality, soft leathers used throughout the new collection, Ecco Golf Shoes are not only top performers but also look fantastic as well.
In terms of regular spiked golf shoes, there is plenty on offer at Golfposer from both Adidas and Puma Golf. The Adidas Samba golf shoes have been extremely popular over the last few seasons since they look and feel just like the classic Samba trainer, but have a 6 spike ThinTech configuration on the sole to create a very trendy golf shoe! Meanwhile, every shoe from the Spring/Summer collection for Puma Golf is available online here - including the fantastic Amp Cell Fusions in Cabaret Pink which is exclusive to Golfposer!
For more information on any of our featured golf shoes, please do not hesitate to get in touch via telephone, email or social networks such as Twitter and Facebook. Our team of experts are on hand to guide you through the process of buying the perfect golf shoes for on (or off) the course this season!
Excitement and anticipation is building for the Masters 2013 at Augusta National Golf Club and here we take a closer look at what each of our brands' players will be wearing from Par 3 Wednesday through to Masters Sunday - should they play well enough!
The Masters 2013 is shaping up to be a fantastic week at Augusta National with the tournament schedule beginning tomorrow evening when the annual Par 3 contest gets under way. This informal, laid back 9 hole tournament has famously never been won by the eventual Masters champion but provides a welcome stress relief on the eve of the first major of the year - whilst the first pairings are set to be announced later today.
We all remember back in 2012 when fans' favourite Bubba Watson won his first ever major in phenomenal style and, having signed with Oakley Golf at the start of 2013, we are very much looking forward to seeing the charismatic lefty making the headlines again this year. Oakley are a brand who are never lacking in inspiration and new ideas, so working together with Bubba is sure to produce great results and below you can see just which Masters outfits Bubba is set to wear this year. If he manages to pull off back to back Masters victories, you can be sure to see #VivaLaBubba trending worldwide on Sunday night!
Rickie Fowler has been enjoying a little run of form and was well in contention in the final pair with eventual winner Tiger Woods at the Arnold Palmer Invitational last month and we hope to be seeing the now famous Rickie Fowler Sunday Orange across our television screens this Sunday! Rickie's Masters outfits for the rest of the week are as vibrant and stylish as ever and you can find it all online here!
For the first time ever, each Adidas tour player is set to wear the exact same outfit across every day of the Masters 2013, with the likes of Dustin Johnson, Jason Day and Sergio Garcia all wearing the same #TeamAdidas polo shirts, trousers and the fantastic Limited Edition Masters AdiZero golf shoes! These shoes are very limited edition and are already selling out in some sizes so make sure you grab a pair while you can!
Luke Donald won the previously mentioned Par 3 contest back in 2011 and he will be hoping to light up his season with a strong performance at Augusta National. Wearing the brand new RLX collection alongside Italian sensation Matteo Manassero, Donald will be looking the part as always this week and perhaps we will see the Englishman around the top of the leaderboard having finished T4 after his Par 3 victory two years ago.
Finally, the new look Nike Golf team for 2013 now features two young stars in Rory McIlroy and Thobjorn Olesen of Denmark and the eyes of the world's media will certainly focus on the former having lost his number one status to fellow Nike player Tiger Woods just a few weeks ago. Much has been made of Rory's new deal and it will be very exciting to watch the action unfold this week - will Rory win, or will he even make the cut? Only time will tell.
Enjoy the Masters 2013 at Golfposer with an exclusive Masters discount code - MASTERS13X - which will take 10% off your complete order through until midnight, Sunday the 14th of April. Join us across our social media pages for all of the build up and action as well and let's hope for a fantastic Masters weekend!
So often, there is such a wide range of colours and styles of golf pants that it is too difficult to choose just one pair - so let us guide you with a look at our favourite funky golf trousers for this season!
Funky golf trousers are becoming more and more popular in the modern game and so it's time for you to steer away from the world of plain golf trousers and take a look at some of the more stand-out options available today! We have carefully selected our favourite funky golf trousers from the collections of the likes of Puma, Galvin Green, Adidas and Hugo Boss - along with our fresh new brands Nike and Oakley Golf - whilst you can also find your favourite Slanj tartan trousers and have them made to measure with Golfposer!
Puma have long been leading the way in terms of daring golf clothing - with Rickie Fowler inspiring lots of creativity and funky combinations! We love the colourful check Plaid styles with three colourways to choose from, seen below! Don't forget, funky golf trousers don't necessarily have to be patterned - fresh solid colours from Puma like the Vibrant Orange, Vivid Blue and also our signature Cabaret Pink which are quite out there too!
The reaction to the brand new golf collection from Oakley, with Bubba Watson the new face of the SS13 campaign, has exceeded our high expectations this year - with GP fans loving the new styles and designs! Oakley are in their element in working with Bubba and with very affordable pricing, these checked Oakley golf trousers come in two colourways which are on display below! Of course, Bubba is the reigning Masters champion and is set to defend his title at Augusta later this week!
Galvin Green produce some of the most comfortable golf trousers around - living up their reputation for high quality golf apparel! For the first time, Golfposer and Galvin Green have come together to produce a limited edition set of Ned Tour golf trousers, with tour Galvin Green logo detail featured above the rear pocket! These cracking trousers are perfect for this season and work with the rest of the current Galvin Green collection, which you can view right here!
However, if it is the ultimate golf trouser which you are looking for, look no further. Hugo Boss trousers, as worn by Martin Kaymer, are arguably the best you can buy and, whilst the majority of the trouser collection is solid in colour this season, the Haddys Pro 5 come in stylish bright colour ways perfect for summer golf! Please note, all Hugo Boss pants are finished to a 34" inside leg which is easily altered.
Slanj of Scotland are one of the most popular tartan specialists in the UK, and now you can choose your favourite tartan from the 16 on offer and have trews made to fit your exact measurements! Please allow for up to two weeks for your order to be fully processed and enjoy free delivery as soon as they are completed! Look great and feel even better in your own custom made Slanj trews!
When wearing a funky pair of golf trousers to mix up your lower half - we suggest sticking with a plainer polo shirt or jumper unless you want to push the boundaries like John Daly! The good news is that you can now mix and match your outfits to see what works best in our new changing room feature! If you love the outfit you have designed, it is now very simple to click the 'Buy this Outfit' button at the bottom of the page!
Introducing: Junior Golfposer featuring junior apparel from brands such as Puma Golf, Adidas and also Galvin Green!
For the first season ever, the team at Golfposer have hand picked a range of Junior Golf Clothing to feature online and in-store having listened to the demand in recent years and with strong junior ranges from Puma, Adidas and Galvin Green, there is certainly a large enough selection to have younger golfers looking the part on the course too! The styles and colours available are very much similar to that of the adults' collections for Spring/Summer, but here we shall go into a bit more depth on what is on offer.
We have noticed a wave of young golfers getting right into the game and their golf clothing all because of one man - none other than Rickie Fowler! The Puma star has inspired the next generation of golfers to express themselves with vibrant colour detail and stylish outfits in order to stand out from the crowd and make a statement on the course, and above you can see a few of our recommended looks for this season! With a wide selection of junior golf shirts, trousers to match and many accessories to complete the outfit - we are confident Puma will have something for every junior golfer this season.
Much like Puma, the Junior Adidas Golf collection uses the same designs and styling as the men's range as worn on tour by Sergio Garcia and Jason Day. With some funky patterns and incredible value clothing, the Junior Adidas collection is well worth a look! Remember, you can also mix and match any junior item using the GP Changing Room facility on our website, allowing you to piece together your perfect outfit for the next Junior Golf Tournament you enter!
Also featured at Junior Golfposer is a very high quality range of outerwear from Galvin Green, including Junior Golf Waterproofs and Insula tec wear. Using the exact same materials as the full size collection, these Junior products from Galvin Green are the ultimate in junior golf as the Gore Tex waterproofs feature full waterproof capabilities and have been engineered to suit junior golfers perfectly. To match with the Richie Gore Tex Jacket and Ross Waterproof Golf Trousers, two colour combinations of both the Windstopper jacket and the Insula full zip sweater look great and round off this neat little Galvin Green collection nicely.
