Ergonomically designed to follow natural body lines, the collection includes a mezzocollo sweater and a gilet, made from the iconic Loro Piana cashmere, and is expertly designed to keep athletes warm through a revolutionary fleecy construction without any added weight or bulk. Of course, no golf collection would be complete without a polo, and the manica corta is the ideal piece for ample movement without restriction and breathability when it comes in contact with skin. The pants, complete with a patented Rain System finish, utilize waterproof fabric to ensure that no matter the climate, the European team is ready to go for gold.

The MatchPlay collection, including the travel and Sunday outfits, will be available early 2017 online.
