Bobby Jones golf apparel unveils Spring line
Series: Golf Buzz

Bobby Jones has long been known as one of the more high-end lines when it comes to golf apparel.
That's not changing.
What is changing, however, is that the company's offerings are getting younger, hipper and adopting more of the athletic fit that seems to have taken over the clothing racks in golf shops these last several years.
For example, the new XH20 Performance Technology shirts from Bobby Jones are described by the company as, "Shirts that will keep you cooler and drier throughout the day due to its patented moisture management system. The performance technology transfers moisture away from the body by distributing it across the fabric and quickly evaporating. This technology also has an anti-static element and will not irritate the skin. The fabric has a UV rating of 15 which will protect you from the sun's damaging rays. The permanent performance application and soft cotton hand feel will last wash after wash."
The three-button polo is available in turquoise, tang, or thistle and retails for $82.50.
Bobby Jones is also introducing a Tri Color, 1/4 Zip Birdseye Sweater with its spring line. Retailing for $175, the 1/4-zip sweater comes in french blue and iris.
A 1/4 Zip Ripstop Pullover Jacket, which was made with Water/Wind Resistant Fabric, is available by Bobby Jones as well. It comes in a variety of colors from key lime to black to geranium. It retails for $195.
You can find all of the new items being offered by Bobby Jones this spring on its website, here.
Along with the great shirts, sweaters and jackets, vests, shorts and pants are also available.
