Ralph Lauren & RLX
Posted at August 31, 2012
We take a look at the very latest collections from Polo Golf and RLX by Ralph Lauren, as worn by major winner Webb Simpson and former World Number One Luke Donald respectively!
The Deutsche Bank Championship is currently in progress on the other side of the Atlantic and it is the last chance saloon for about seven potential contenders to make themselves noticed by US Ryder Cup captain Davis Love before he announces his Captain's Picks this Tuesday. One thing that is for certain though is the participation of Ralph Lauren brand endorsers Webb Simpson and Luke Donald - who each qualified automatically for their respective teams comfortably! Webb wears the very latest apparel from Polo Golf, whilst Luke has been an ambassador for RLX for any seasons and both players are also currently in action at TPC Boston aiming to progress further in the FedEx cup standings!
27 year old Webb Simpson is the defending champion of the Deutsche Bank Championship - a victory which propelled him towards that fantastic US Open victory back in June. Unfortunately, Webb decided to skip the 141st Open Championship at Royal Lytham and St Annes due to the imminent birth of his second child but Simpson cruised to qualification for the US Ryder Cup team, finishing fifth in the final points standings. Webb has been a brand ambassador for Ralph Lauren Polo for over two years with his 'youthfulness and classic style' corresponding with the look of the latest Polo Golf collections.
The brand new Polo Golf collection from Ralph Lauren is fresh and vibrant with some hot colours and trendy styles of polo shirts, knitwear and outerwear. The classic Ralph Lauren pique polo shirt is available in many colours and some of these styles have added stretch for freedom of movement throughout the swing. Another shirt with added stretch specific for golf is the fine stripe polo, made from 100% Peruvian Cotton with breathability capabilities as well. The Pony Pro polo also returns for AW12 in a variety of fashionable colours and this season is accompanied by a long sleeve version too!
Also featured in the Autumn/Winter range from Ralph Lauren - who are also Patrons of the Open Championship - are warm half zip pullovers which embrace simplicity and have a luxurious leather tab on the zipper and a small Pony logo on the left chest. Another great piece of knitwear is the Merino V Neck sweater which looks amazing in the strong Blue Dolphin colour way with a green Polo logo on the sleeve to match the Pony on the chest.
Golfposer favourite Luke Donald has gone another season without that elusive major championship title but we are confident the RLX player will continue with his sparkling form and play a vital role in the defence of the Ryder Cup for team Europe in Illinois. Luke has managed nine top 10 finishes this season and blew away the rest of the field at the BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth by four shots - results which will increase the pressure on the former World Number One to be one of the star performers of José María Olazábal's side for the end of September! Luke wears the very latest in luxury performance golf apparel by RLX - a fantastic range of clothing which you can find online here today!
RLX golf apparel is the ultimate in luxury performance golf wear and the technical fabrics combined with fashionable designs are what makes RLX so great. Micro fibre technology is incorporated into the Pocket Stripe Polo which is sure to keep you dry and comfortable throughout your round, whilst CoolMAX fabric is a main component of the Multi Stripe Tech shirt bringing a high level of breathability with moisture wicking performance. The Solid Tour Tech pique is simpler in design but equally as trendy and also features this excellent CoolMAX technology from RLX.
Brand new for this season are the Greens Corduroy pants which are excellent for golf with added stretch alongside the corduroy fabric which is lightweight but warmer than regular golf pants for the cooler Autumn months. Match these fantastic pants - which also have front pockets and buttoned rear pockets - with any of the latest pieces of outerwear from RLX for a fantastic look this season. We love the trendy quilted golf gilet which looks very classy in Black with the contrast red zipper and is made with a Sherpa Fleece lining to make for an excellent body warmer on the course this season! Also available are two styles of full zip jackets which have added stretch for extra freedom of movement during the golf swing.
The 39th Ryder Cup begins on the 28th of September and come this Tuesday we will know the final teams of 12 for both Europe and the USA who will battle it out at the Medinah Country Club to take home the famous Ryder Cup trophy. Excitement is building here at Golfposer HQ and you can enjoy all the build up and action with us online via our facebook and twitter pages!
