Nike pros beat the heat at Pinehurst

Golfers sponsored by Nike will be wearing apparel from the company’s Elite Cooling range at the US Open, staged at Pinehurst, North Carolina. With temperatures expected to be high Elite Cooling apparel is designed to help players stay cool says Nike, with lightweight, cool-to-touch fabrics; strategically placed mesh panels; and woven constructions for superior ventilation and breathability.

Nike Golf’s Elite Cooling styles for its players at the US Open include the lightweight Innovation Colour Polo that offers ventilation and breathability where athletes need it most, as well as the Ultra Polo 2.0, Key Iconic Polo 2.0, lightweight Innovation Cool polo and flat front trousers.

Nike pro Francesco Molinari (pictured) commented, “We’re lucky as Nike athletes because we get to wear the best apparel for the best performance, which is especially important in those hot and humid conditions. I like that all the fabrics are really stretchy, and really comfortable. So no matter how hot it is or how much I sweat, it really doesn’t matter — it doesn’t affect me when I’m playing. I can still swing without any problems, and that’s the main thing you want when you play golf in that sort of weather.”
