Best socks for the active golfer

They might be the most important thing you bring on a golf trip. They might be the most important apparel you wear on the course. Screw up your selection just once and the blisters on your heel will remind you with days of pain. They are, of course, the socks you wear to play golf.

Do normal, athletic socks get the job done? Sure. But are there much better offerings beyond the clearance rack at your department store? Undoubtedly. You want socks with support, that wick moisture from your skin, that can handle a 36-hole day, that don’t stand out beyond your footwear. They might get covered up, but they are significant nonetheless. So we are here to offer a little guidance on what socks might be best for your golf game.
