Since 2001 Dunning Golf has been a maker of very high quality, high performance golf apparel. Ralph Dunning uses proprietary performance fabrics and combines them with very classy styles and designs. The end result is the most comfortable, best looking, and highest performance golf apparel I’ve reviewed. Today’s review of the new Tour Edition Players Sweater is no different. Let us take a look.
The Tour Edition Players Sweater is made from 100% Australian merino wool. Before you start thinking you’d be too hot and too itchy, let me tell you that this type of wool is so soft and smooth you might mistake it for silk.
The wool seems to regulate the body temperature. It breathes well and provides insulation and warmth when needed, but does not get too hot.
“It’s slimming…” That’s what the lady said to me the first time I put on the TEPS (Tour Edition Players Sweater). Based on that comment alone I’m sold! I’m not exactly on the radar for modeling in the next men’s apparel magazine or anything…
The style of this sweater is all class, great to wear on or off the course.
No need for a myriad of colors. Two is plenty, “Halo” (blue, pictured) and Charcoal gray.
Sizes range from small to double extra-large.
On The Course / Performance
I’m wearing a sweater on the course because I need a little bit of insulation to stay warm and keep the back loose. Often times wearing these types of layers means a compromise in comfort and movement. Those compromises mean bad golf swings. Not the case with the TEPS. The freedom of movement in the golf swing with this sweater is fantastic.
No restrictions. No binding. No stretching anywhere. Swing freely.
I was surprised to see the pricing on this sweater was only $125 retail. I had it pegged for $199-$249 based on the quality, materials, and style.
When judging golf apparel there four criteria I use, in this order: performance, comfort, style, convenience. The Dunning Golf Tour Edition Players Sweater earns the highest marks across the board. That comes as no surprise. That’s what I would expect from Dunning.
