Gimme that: The perfect windbreaker for Open Championship-like golf conditions

The Columbia Flash Forward windbreaker is great for windy rounds on the links.


The Open Championship is known for its brutal weather, though this year the forecast is looking pretty mild. Mild as it may be, there’s still no escaping those Sandwich gusts, which by Sunday could get up to nearly 30 miles per hour!

Here in steamy New York City windbreakers have been far from my mind, but as I’ve watched first round coverage, it made me realize fall is just around the corner, and the best deals usually happen out of season. Alas, I’ve discovered the ultimate windbreaker for when that time comes. It’s water resistant, has a trendy colorblock pattern and has plenty of pockets for all of your golf accessories. And — the best part? — as promised, the price is right.
